June 1953 - Coronation of Queen Elizabeth

It's the Queen's Birthday long weekend, and also sixty years since Queen Elizabeth's coronation.  Here is the cover of the Australian Women's Weekly, 10 June 1953.

If you attended the even in London, you may have worn something like these.

Or maybe these - love the one piece leopard print outfit.


While back in the Australian winter these colored coats were all the rage.

And furs were also popular.

While pretty buttons added a special to that handmade dress.

And of course no lay would be caught without the proper stockings, or nylons.

Here's cheers to a wonderful lady - happy birthday Queen  Elizabeth!
