>> Fashion icon Andre Leon Talley died recently at the age of 73.
>> I never heard of the guy.
>> I saw a vignette of him in which he claimed Queen Elizabeth is one of the best dressed women in the world.
>> I thought about it, which is odd for me since I have the fashion IQ of a rock, BUT, I came to the same conclusion.  The Queen is always dressed in a non-distracting way; her chosen colors are pristine, pleasant to the eye; her chosen style is elegant without being pretentious; her accessories—hats, jewels, trimmings—complete, not compete with, the total visual image.  It’s perfect.  And then there’s her little “Teddy”, her purse.  A signature accessory that befits a Queen, a necessary extension of her regal presence (that she created).

>> Now that I’ve aroused my “fashion instincts”, I’m ready to name the “Best Dressed Woman” on the planet.  Why not?
>>
>> My choice should come as no surprise:  Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
>>
>> Not only is she a future Queen of England, she’s gorgeous.  Perfect body, perfect face, electric smile…and…she has the grace of a golden swan and the stunning presence of a rare, white peacock. She transforms tastefulness into timeless charm.
>> She has a female aura denied to most with a splendor, a regal splendor, that accompanies her blessed position.  She’s definitely the best looking, most stylish, graceful, completely awesome, and yes, “Best Dressed Woman In The World.”  Believe me.

>> Thank you Andre for planting the seed.  I’m already 74, but believe you got me into something I can’t get out of.

>> FYI:  If “Vogue” is seeking a new fashion editor, I have twenty recommendations on the tip of my tongue (and the first nineteen don’t count).
