Queen Elizabeth Turned a Matchy-Matchy Fashion Moment With Nigeria’s High Commissioner into an Epic Photo Op

An audience with the Queen is always an occasion worth dressing up for, but what happens when you coordinate with her royal highness? When Queen Elizabeth II received his excellency Nigerian High Commissioner George Oguntade and his wife Modupe, the trio created a fashion moment of epic proportions in the same vibrant color scheme. With Mrs. Oguntade wearing a beautiful striped ipele that matched perfectly with her husband’s agbada, the couple presented a united front in looks that were traditional yet modern, an elegant take on political power dressing à deux. The Oguntades were certainly in sync, but their connection to the Queen took things to the next level.
In a demure floral patterned dress worn with black flats and one of her ever-present purses, the Queen matched Mr. and Mrs Oguntade perfectly. The color purple has long associated with royalty, so in that sense the group's style dynamics aren't that unexpected, though the surprise coordination made for a special photo op. With the official Royal Family Instagram sharing the image and hundreds of commenters asking whether or not the looks were planned in advance, the Queen joins the ranks of celebrities who break the internet with their every outfit update. While we’re unlikely to see HRH posting selfies in Vetements, the unexpected style moment shows the universality of bold color and great prints.
