Our Four Favorite Princess Diana Dresses: A Closer Look!
With a baby on the way for Duchess Catherine and Prince William off saving stranded hikers in Wales, the royal family is always in the spotlight. And while she may be gone, Princess Diana is never forgotten: she’s one of the most well-known style icons of all time, and a collection of her most iconic dresses will soon be auctioned off by London auction house Kerry Taylor. Included in the auction are these four pieces above—from left, the sequin-covered Catherine Walker (1989), a plunging black velvet gown by Bruce Oldfield (1985), the one-shoulder ivory crepe gown with pink sequin appliques by Catherine Walker (1991), and this off-the-shoulder midnight blue Victor Edelstein velvet gown (1985), where she unforgettably twirled on the dance floor with actor John Travolta. The dresses are expected to fetch anywhere between $45,000 to $400,000—all to own a piece of princess history.
