Administrator March 20, 2013

Reuters reported earlier that 10 evening gowns donated by Princess Diana at a charity auction in New York were sold today for a sum of $1.2 Million (~£800,000 British Pounds). The highest selling item was a Victor Edelstein creation – sold for $362,470 – was worn by the princes at the U.S. gala dinner.  A beaded black evening gown and a crushed velvet burgundy dress by designer Catherine Walker sold for $163,091 (£108,085) each. You may remember the beaded black gown which was shot for Vanity Fair by infamous photographer Mario Testino.

Princess Diana was the epitome of everything chic. From her glam gowns to her fab headgear, it is easy to understand why the People’s Princess was a style icon – and why people paid millions to have a piece of thee memorabilia.

Fashion specialists Kerry Taylor Auctions reported: “The sale saw a high level of interest, with some museums coming forward to grab a slice of royal history”. The auction attracted  bidders from across the world including Asia, America, Austria, Australia and of course, the UK, including three important museums.
