Oh! Serene Grace I do too! they are the most beautiful, to me, in the entire world!
You might not know this but there are very few ( and I mean few) that can construct those British roofs here in the US. Out of curiosity I looked for them once and could only find like three men that had the knowledge of this craftsmanship.  flirt

BTW...It's too bad her ex husband totally ignored her, after all one thing will always bind them---Princess Diana's beautiful and fairy like wedding dress.


Thought that dress was overblown and kind of hideous; it wore her, not the other way around.   easter-sly

I know a lot of people *despise* the dress, but I still love it, for some reason. It just seemed so Diana 1980's. I love the way she looks in it.  flirt

This was eighties fashion and nothing unusual about the style back then. I think Diana looked great.

Diana was a true fairytale princess. The dress and the wedding were incredibly beautiful.

I agree. The dress was beautiful... reminds me always of those fairy tale books I read when I was a little girl.
To me the dress of KM was blah! not ugly but nothing memorable, as Diana's dress will always be.

Princess Diana's most 'ornate and romantic' dress set to fetch up to £80,000 at auction
 Ball gown is from Emanuel's 1986 'Diaghilev' collectione
 Diana personally selected it at Red Cross benefit fashion show in 1986
 Diana wore it regularly to red carpet events and film premieres

Described as 'one of the most romantic of all Princess Diana’s gowns'


One of Princess Diana’s ornate dresses is set to fetch up to £80,000 at auction.

 
The ballgown from the Emmanuel 1986 'Diaghilev' collection has been described by Kerry Taylor Auction House, who are selling the ballgown, as 'arguably one of the most ornate, romantic of all Princess Diana’s gowns'.
 
Shimmering with gold sequins, crystals and pearl beads the dress was inspired by Leon Bakst's designs for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes and it comes with a matching headband, optional sleeve panels and petticoat



The Princess first caught sight of this dress, which will go under the hammer on December 3, at a Red Cross benefit fashion show in the summer of 1986.


She selected it from the twelve glittering gold and white creations that the Emanuels had sent for the occasion.
 

Unusually, the Princess acquired the show model, rather than specially commissioning another gown from the designers.

That gorgeous dress was purchased when it was initially auctioned off by a woman in Richmond, Va. USA. She paid around $20,000 for it. Nice return on her investment. If I owned that dress I would have a hard time giving it up.

Its too ornate and it looks horribly uncomfortable. 

I liked Diana's style after the 1990's........clean, comfortable, modern.......then again, the 1980's fashions were horrendous for everyone.  But not as bad as the 70's with Disco and leisure suits.

Not my favourite. I like the white lace dress with cutaway arms.

I miss Eighties fashion; kids dressed like kids and fashion was an art, not a set of cuts and modern fashions these days are just plain routine and borderline sterile. In the Eighties there was a real difference in dress and very little was 'same old same old.'

Diana's dress suited the occasion and she looked like a princess, not like Kate did; Diana showed she knew what sort of outfit the occasion called for and since then she rarely put a foot wrong. Kate showed up looking very suburban and basically blasphemed Westminster with her choice of outfit and decor.

Sarah's dress was better in many ways, but I felt Diana's dress worked for the occasion too, It was unforgetable and larger than life, even with all it's mistakes, she created a stunning, iconic image.

When I think about Diana the image that comes to mind is the light blue suit and the short blue dress.

^I know which suit you mean, and I do, too.

But,also, when I think of Diana, she's in a plain white shirt and slacks and still screams Princess.

Designed by the Emanuels, who also designed Diana's wedding dress, the frock shimmers with gold sequins, crystals and pearl beads, and comes with matching headband, optional sleeve panels and petticoat.
