Top 10 Princess Diana Fashion Moments
Never-before-seen Princess Diana outfits go on display at re-opened exhibition
The unique exhibit, tracing the evolution of the Princess’s style “from the demure, romantic outfits of her first public appearances, to the glamour, elegance and confidence of her later life”, first opened last year, with a collection of 28 outfits.
Crowds flocked to the satorial honouring of the late Princess – and it proved a sell-out success.
And it looks as though that popularity is set to continue. Now, Historical Royal Palaces have announced that Prince Harry and Prince William have chosen to showcase eight more of their mother’s most iconic looks, as the exhibit re-opens today (26th April). Buy tickets here.
Amongst the new outfits will be some of the late Princess’ most iconic looks – and those that chart her rise to one of the most iconic women in the world.
Diana underwent a huge fashion transformation throughout her years. Following her marriage to Charles, Prince of Wales, the former Lady Diana Spencer’s style underwent rapid changes as ‘Shy Di’ metamorphosed into ‘Dynasty Di’, replacing her teenage honeymooner’s uniform of knitwear and tweed with statement-shouldered lamé, velvet and satin showstoppers.
Encouraged by designers Bruce Oldfield and Catherine Walker, with whom she worked closely, Diana set the agenda for 1980s style, donning priceless chokers as flapper-style headpieces and tossing elegant strings of pearls down her equally elegant back.
Post-separation, and relieved of the obligation to shore up the British economy by shirking the wares of international designers, Diana’s style underwent a second revolution, as the Princess re-emerged from her royal cocoon clad in rainbow bright, bodycon designs by the likes of Gianni Versace and raised admiring eyebrows, as well as hemlines, in her instantly iconic take on the little black dress (quickly dubbed ‘The Revenge Dress’).
