    Britain's monarch has met a queen of the fashion world, as Vogue editor Anna Wintour was made a Dame Commander of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II.

    Wintour was made a dame — female equivalent of a knight — for services to fashion and journalism in a Buckingham Palace ceremony on Friday.

    The U.K.-born editor arrived wearing her ever-present sunglasses, but removed them before entering the palace ballroom.

    She said afterward that the queen had struggled to find a place to pin the insignia on Wintour's pink belted Chanel outfit.

    Alex and Maia Shibutani were scanning the crowd before their performance in the ice dance competition at the Olympic Winter Games when they saw a familiar face, "SNL" star Leslie Jones. After that, the "Shib Sibs" took the ice and won a bronze medal.

    Wintour said she also congratulated the queen on Prince Philip's long public service, calling him "an inspiration to us all."

    The queen's husband, who is 95, announced Thursday that he will retire from public engagements in the fall.
