Yesterday afternoon, British fashion designer Alice Temperley received a right royal honour at Buckingham Palace, after she was awarded an MBE by the Queen for her services to the fashion world.
Her designs are often favoured amongst the royal crowd, with future Queen-to-be Kate Middleton no stranger to the odd Temperley frock or two.
The designer recently celebrated an amazing 10 years in the fashion industry, but admits that nerves got the better of her when stood in front of the Queen, forgetting the full royal etiquette on the day.
“Unfortunately I walked away without curtseying, which is annoying,” she says.
But regardless of her little mishap, Temperley definitely looked the part for the extra special occasion, opting to wear an androgynous tuxedo jacket and trousers from her latest autumn/winter 2011-12 collection, that showcased during London Fashion Week, reports Vogue UK.
