You can call these designers Sir or Dame
Every year, Queen Elizabeth II bestows honorary royal titles to people who have made lasting impacts in his or her field. Over the years, a number of fashion designers have made the list for their outstanding contributions to the industry and the world at large. Most recently, Ralph Lauren became the first American designer to receive the honorary knighthood. While he won't officially be "Sir" Ralph Lauren–only those honored with Knight Commander or Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire get to officially add "sir" or "dame" to their name–he's already considered American royalty. Ahead, learn about Lauren and other designers who have earned real-deal royal titles.
