Diana On Display

-------

As if anyone needed a reminder, before there was Kate Middleton, there was Princess Diana, who became a style icon the minute she stepped out in that David Emanuel black strapless gown only ten days after her engagement to the Prince of Wales. The world will get a glimpse of her famous frocks once more when five of her dresses go on display on March 26 to mark a $19 million revamp of Kensington Palace (done for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the upcoming
London Olympics).

The Diana exhibition, WWD reports, will highlight the Princess of Wales’ major fashion moments. The dresses, some of which are going on display in the U.K. for the first time, will include the infamous black taffeta Emanuel gown, two Catherine Walker dresses (one cream and one fuchsia), a black Versace dress, and a cream and white Bellville Sassoon cocktail dress.
