While there aren’t any pictures of this historic meeting floating around yet, Pejic had a chat with Vogue UK about his outfit choice, and the reasons he chose it. The Palace said that guests could dress however they felt “most comfortable”, which made everyone really nervous about what Pejic would possibly wear. However, he proves that he understands the concept of “appropriate”, telling Vogue UK:
“I’m wearing a Paul Smith blazer, because I wanted to wear at least one British designer, with a vintage Versace pencil skirt and just some heels. I wanted to just be myself – androgynous – and play with the masculine blazer and pencil skirt. It’s also a bit Nineties, which I love.”
The big question is, which gender’s “meeting-the-Queen” etiquette did Pejic follow? Men are supposed to bow their heads a bit and women are supposed to curtsy. Pulling off a curtsy in a Versace pencil skirt is probably quite a feat in itself, but we’re sure Pejic made it look flawless.
Update: So the Cut had a chat with Pejic’s rep, and here’s his ensemble. Oh, and he apparently bowed.
