Pantone, the global authority on color and provider of professional colour standards for the design industries, and leading advertising agency Leo Burnett, have teamed up to launch a limited edition color guide to mark the Queen’s fashion color statements. So limited, that as far as I can tell, the only person to receive the fandeck is HRM!
The Diamond Jubilee Color Guide, A Queen Elizabeth II Pantone Deck, includes consists of 60 colors that include Crystal Blue, Pink Carnation, Primrose Yellow and Ice Green.
HRM knows a lot about color and how to wear it.
Blue is her best (and apparently favorite) color.
She favors monochromatic colors. They make a person look taller (she is only 5'4").
She knows so much about color that British Vogue has studied every outfit she has worn for the past 12 months. Blue is the most frequent color worn and beige is at the bottom of the list. Perhaps we will see her bring out her own paint range next? I would love to see what the names of HRM paints would be called...
