From Her Majesty as style muse to a new Princess, mini-skirts to modesty, 2017 has been stylish indeed. These are our editors’ fashion highlights…

The Queen did battle with Jackie Kennedy

Natalie Portman as Jackie, and Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II. 

Both have inspired designers for decades but The Crown on Netflix and Jackie on the big screen reminded the world of their respective merits. From The Crown we could deduce that The Queen was an actual fashion plate, albeit briefly (this was the period that Erdem focused on in his September show, to be precise the moment in 1956 when her Majesty met Duke Ellington in… Leeds). And Jackie, well Jackie was icily composed and elegant even at her most destroyed. Perhaps this is what Kim Kardashian was trying to channel when she paid $379,500 for Jackie’s Cartier Tank watch at auction in June. LA
