Why Queen Elizabeth's Style Is Just As Great As Kate Middleton's

Those Brits sure know a thing or two (or three) about powerful, stylish women. We're obviously suckers for Kate Middleton's refined outfits, especially when they're coupled with her recently-acquired maternal glow. But today, we're turning to a different royal for fashion inspiration—Queen Elizabeth, who celebrates her 87th birthday today!

Whether she's wrapped in a silk headscarf, floor-length gown or two-piece suit, the Queen knows fashion. Her dream-worthy collection of hats, handbags and jewels (her Imperial State Crown alone includes 2,868 diamonds, 273 pearls, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds and five rubies!) have us dreaming of a chance to peek inside her closet. While that's unlikely, we've gathered some of our favorite Queen Elizabeth looks below, along with shoppable items to help you snag her regal style!
