Sure, Princess Kate‘s style receives the bulk of the royal fashion focus, but during the past 24 hours, 90-year-old Queen Elizabeth proved why she’s the original well-dressed royal.

Last night, the Queen stepped out in a turquoise and blue dress by one of her personal assistants and senior dresser, Angela Kelly. You’ve seen the Queen sport her looks often — like in the royal enclosure at Royal Ascot. She wore last night’s look to welcome Team Great Britain’s 2016 Olympic and Paralympic teams for a reception at Buckingham Palace. She paired the metallic print dress with a few go-to accessories, including a double strand of pearls, black gloves and her ubiquitous handbag.

The Queen followed up last night’s look with another winning ensemble on Tuesday. This time, she met with Brigadier James Selbie, Colonel Commandant, Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery, who presented her with a statue of Lt. Col. John McCrae, a Canadian soldier who fought in World War I and wrote the famed poem “In Flanders Fields.”

For the occasion, she wore a white tweed dress and went for similar accessories as the night before: a multi-layered strand of pearls, pearl earrings and a gold brooch. For the less formal, daytime event, she left the gloves at home (or rather, in another room of the palace!).
