Queen Sirikit of Thailand marks her 91st birthday today. We’re celebrating with a look at one of her most sparkling royal tiara appearances, at a gala in the Netherlands six decades ago.
How’s this for a recipe for bejeweled splendor? A young, beautiful Queen Consort, a cache of sparkling jewels, a custom-made couture wardrobe, and a six-month world tour—all the ingredients for timeless royal elegance came together as Queen Sirikit of Thailand (who celebrates her 90th birthday today!) traveled across the globe in style in 1960.
