Fit For a Princess: DIANA Exhibit

In terms of fashion, Princess Diana is known for her sense of style as much as she is for her inviting smile. Now, for those who want to reminisce on the glamorous looks of the late Princess of Wales, five of her most iconic gowns will be displayed next year at the Kensington Palace in London.
One of the looks that is already making headlines, is her famous strapless, black silk Emmanuel gown that the then 19 year old, and newly engaged Diana wore during her first public outing with Prince Charles. See more of the gorgeous looks inside.

"The display at Kensington Palace will also include a Catherine Walker fuchsia silk chiffon sari-style dress Diana wore on an official visit to Thailand in 1988, and a Catherine Walker ivory silk crepe dinner dress worn for a Mario Testino photo shoot for Vanity Fair...
The remaining gowns are a black and white sequincocktail dress by Bellville Sassoon Lorcan Mullany from 1989, and a black silk shift dress by Versace from 1995.

The exhibit, simply called "Diana," is a part of a $19 million revamp of Kensington Palace in time for Queen Elizabeth II's diamond jubilee and the 2012 London Olympics. The set is being created by interior designer Finola Inger, while Julie Verhoeven has designed bespoke wallpaper as the backdrop for these stunning fashions."
