After years of the same stodgy outfit, the Queen of England stepped out in a fierce new pair of boots, proving that it's never too late to take a fashion chance.
Although a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace says that the boots were more for function than fashion, as the Queen took a brisk walk through the Slovakian Tatra mountains on a three day tour of Slovakia and Slovenia this week.
The Queen Mum looked absolutely fabulous as she opened a hockey match, in a slim-fitting golden fur-trimmed coat, topped with a hat that defied her usual monochromatic wardrobe with a bright lavender feather.
