Diana birth anniversary: Remembering the Princess of Wales’s best fashion moments
Remembering Princess Diana today, on her birthday, here are her iconic looks that have made history and continue to do so.
Diana, Princess of Wales was a member of the British royal family. She was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales—the heir apparent to the British throne and mother of Prince William and Prince Harry. She was born on 1 July 1961 at Park House, Sandringham, Norfolk. On 31 August 1997, Diana died in a car crash in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris.
Today would have been the royal’s 60th birthday. She was one of the most admired, dearly loved members of the British royal family. Princess Diana quickly became one of the most popular royals in modern history. Though her legacy extends far beyond fashion, Princess Diana is arguably the greatest fashion icon of the 20th century. She emerged as a classic, iconic personality owing to her charity work, amiable personality, and stunning fashion sense.
Diana’s wardrobe had come to be just as influential for a new generation of fans of the princess’s style. Some of the late royal’s most famous looks include her off-the-shoulder “Revenge Dress” from 1994 and her casual Virgin-Atlantic sweatshirt look from 1995. According to designers and people who worked with Diana, she used fashion and style to endorse her charitable causes, express herself and communicate.
The Princess chose her dressing style based on both the royal family’s demands and popular modern styles in Britain and developed her personal fashion trend. Catherine Walker was among Diana’s favorite designers with whom she worked to create her “royal uniform”. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, she wore outfits and ensembles by numerous notable fashion designers. Remembering Princess Diana today, on her birthday, here are her iconic looks that have made history and still continue to do so.
