Princess Anne: the queen’s daughter is “a true style icon” for this reason
As a young princess, who turned 18 in 1968, Anne was ahead of what was in fashion.
When she was in her twenties, Anne chose bold colors to make a statement wherever she went, with many events being movie premieres.
Photos from her outing showed Anne taking the hemlines of the decades and quickly moving on to the flowers the ’70s were famous for.
In 1973, Anne was pictured arriving for the film’s royal performance at the Odeon in Leicester Square.
Her hair was styled into a bun and she chose a floor-length multi-colored dress.
With a high ruffled collar, the men’s bodice was made from elastic and had half-puffed sleeves from above the elbow to the wrist.
The dress had an A-line skirt and the pattern was adorned with bright colors of pink, yellow, green and cornflower blue.
On another occasion, Anne was seen with her mother and father, Prince Philip.
She and Queen Elizabeth had coordinated as they both wore slightly different shades of blue.
Towards the end of the decade, Princess Anne was seen attending a film premiere in London and was pictured wearing a turquoise green maxi dress.
With cap sleeves and a stand-up collar, the dress was adorned with two large contrasting purple stripes, one at the waist and the other on the shoulders.
