The Queen makes a SHOCK London Fashion Week appearance on the front row wearing crystals

The Queen, 91, has made her first ever appearance at London Fashion Week.

Elizabeth II, who is known for her own unique sense of style, sat next to US Vogue Editor Anna Wintour.

She took in the colourful Richard Quinn catwalk show. The Central Saint Martins MA Fashion graduate is known for his avant garde designs.

The Queen attended London Fashion Week to present the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.

Richard Quinn is the first ever recipient of the award, who is being recognised due to his prints. 

The show featured models wearing thigh high boots and dresses with generous cleavage.

In a strange twist, they also wore motorcycle helmets in the same print. 

The award has been devised by  Angela Kelly, Personal Advisor to Her Majesty.

The Queen is said to have wanted to give recognition of emerging British fashion talent via the award.

The award itself has been designed by Lucy Price at Bauhinia Studios in Birmingham’s jewellery quarter.

Tonight the Queen wore a light blue twin suit.

She carried a black handbag and wore black gloves.

The Queen’s tweed dress and jacket was from Angela Kelly, and was embellished with tiny Swarovski crystals.

Prior to her appearance at the fashion show, the Queen took in a millinery exhibition curated by Stephen Jones.

Mr Jones has made hats for the Queen’s granddaughter Princess Eugenie and the late socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson.

The Queen was seen laughing at smiling during the show, as she sat next to her advisor.
