Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee

Andy Warhol's Queen Elizabeth prints

It's all about the Queen this weekend (!)... in the British Isles anyway. Queen Elizabeth is the last of her kind, and IMHO the epitome of understated class and refinement. For that reason, and even if you aren't a royal watcher, I think we are all lucky to experience this landmark event. Known for her fabulously bright and cheery dresses with matching chapeaus ("to be better visible to her subjects," she says), I love that she can don a Barbour jacket to ride and shoot like a true country gal too—a ladies version of "a man's man," if you know what I mean. I think she is adorable. More on those famous hats tomorrow.  For now, it's tea time!
