  2. Always classy and dignified. In a week a new Emperor and Empress are in Japan. Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko retire, this is well deserved. This lovely couple have represented Japan with Grace and Respect all these years.

  4. Elegance is not showing skin, wearing only status labels or being cool or even relevant in term of clothing. It’s an innate thing which a human possesses. The empress is an elegant lady.
