Who knew? WWD reports that Queen Elizabeth II was quite the Carrie Bradshaw in her day.
A little known fact about Queen Elizabeth II: she has exquisite taste in shoes. For her 1953 coronation, the monarch tapped French footwear maven Roger Vivier to construct a decadent, embroidered slipper with rubies.
