    2. Oh, thank you very much, Diane! Exhibitions like that are - apart from the fashion - always some kind of contemporary document, don't you think? I clearely remember Nancy Reagans hair-helmet those days, I was very young and started being interested in politics and what is going on in this world...

  3. Black dress was perfect for Princess Diana, for her height and her slim figure.She looked beautiful in that dress.

    1. I agree such a ghastly outfit. Not sure I liked it when she wore it so long ago. She had some hits and misses and this was a mess.

  6. Green ensamble was so 80´. Takes me back to think my own barn broad shoulder bads. That was a time!

    Dark blue evening gown is so very beautiful and one of the most iconic Diana-clothes ever.

  7. I must say that I really miss Lady Diana.The world will never have a royal Lady like her,beauty and karisma and a big heart for the poor people.Female royalties today try very hard to dress well and looking good,but it is far away from what Diana gave us all.As I sad....I miss her.

  9. I miss her too karen and Christianna :(

    It was Diana that got me following the royal families. It is still sometimes difficult to know she is gone. 20 yrs in 2017. How is that possible. So much she has missed. I think she watches though. She would be proud of her boys and her grandchildren.

    She was one of a kind

  10. Lady Diana, Princess of Wales... such beauty, such charisma. Photos do not do her justice. She was more beautiful in person than any photo can depict. Her skin, her hair, her eyes...

    Sadly she came into full bloom just before she passed away. In my opinion that is when she was at her fashionable best, although there are honourable mentions throughout the preceding years, such as the gown above.

    1. I agree It's Me!

      She was really beautiful and had as you said blossomed away from the constraints of the marriage woes. She was so fashion forward. Spicing it up and elegant at the same time. She had big hits earlier but at 36 she was fabulous.
