While the Duchess of Cambridge dazzled on Monday night in London, let's not forget about her late mother-in-law, the style icon Princess Diana. The Princess of Wales' famous dress collection will go on display this March and several will be shown for the first time in the U.K.!
As part of a refurbishment of Kensington Palace, five of her glam frocks will go on display. According to The Telegraph, one includes a Versace little black dress, a cream-and-white Bellville Sassoon cocktail dress and two gowns (one cream and the other fuschia) designed by Catherine Walker, one of her favorite designers.
A black strapless taffeta gown she wore ten days after getting engaged to Prince Charles will be the centerpiece of the collection. It was designed by her wedding gown designer, David Emmanuel. The black dress was their first public engagement outing and immediately morphed Diana into a style icon.
The newspaper points out that Kate Middleton wore a similar gown this week when she rocked out to the Alexander McQueen strapless dress; his fashion house also designed her wedding gown.
