Queen Elizabeth is a fashion icon: Dannii Minogue

London: Pop star Dannii Minogue says she believes Britain`s Queen Elizabeth is a fashion icon because she has never been fuddy duddy.

The `Australia`s Got Talent` judge said she admires the way the 86-year-old monarch still makes daring style choices, reported a website.

"A grandmother several times over, the queen could be forgiven for sauntering into fuddy-duddy land, but instead, she dresses age-appropriately, sticking to colour-blocking suits she knows, and getting it so right. Look no further than the primrose dress she wore to Catherine and William`s wedding, and the series of acid-brights she wore for last year`s tour of Australia. There aren`t lots of octogenarian fashion icons, but this 86 year old is a bona fide style queen," she said.

Minogue, 40, said she is particularly impressed with the way the queen manages to look stylish while also dressing appropriately to suit her busy schedule of public engagements.
