The Queen hails McQueen! Sarah Burton is among the honorees for this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List, receiving an Order of the British Empire for her services to the fashion industry.

Also making the Queen’s list are Oscar-winner Kate Winslet and Mulberry‘s Emma Hill, who will both receive a Commander of the British Empire (CBE), as well as actor-director Kenneth Branagh, who will be awarded knighthood. [Guardian]
