Princess Diana is the epitome of timeless style. The late Princess of Wales was well known for her elegant approach to royal attire. From floor-sweeping ball gowns to ultra chic column dresses, there hasn’t been a royal affair she hasn’t stolen the sartorial limelight. Catherine Walker, David Sassoon, Christina Stambolian and Stephen Jones are just a few of the British designers Diana has regularly collaborated with to create her most iconic high-end fashion moments, including her famous Revenge dress.
But it wasn’t all Cinderella dresses and tailored outfits at the Met Gala. Princess Diana also knew how to follow the common path and dress casually. In fact, more often than not, it was his everyday clothes that got people talking. During the 1990s, she was somewhat of a trailblazer in the sport, wearing biker shorts with oversized sweatshirts to run errands. And, truth be told, while that exact look is now back in fashion – calling Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid – no one can quite pull it off like Diana.
Without a doubt, Princess Diana was one of a kind, which made her sudden death in 1997 even more tragic and heartbreaking. His legacy continues to live on thanks to the charitable work of his sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.
As for Diana’s personal style, it also remains a source of inspiration for fashionistas around the world. Members of the royal family, including Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, frequently pay tribute to Princess Diana with their ensembles.
