No, (so far?) no pics, but it's said to be "flat pumps". Maybe she's even pictured in them at some function or shopping in them? Unless they never saw the light of day (namely she was never photographed wearing them).

I was not even sure the pics showed jimmy choos shoes. It was not a very good article.

It's the dm, what do you expect!  laugh They basically spun an article out of a couple of sentences he said... Par for the course with this paper, got to get the clicks somehow!

 urwelcome Sadly the article looks like a quickly cobbled together thing, I was disappointed at the lack of pics as well (relevant ones - ie the shoe)...
I especially love her style towards the end, more "modern", timeless, chic and streamlined; very elegant and sophistcated. Clothes & hair! Her makeup was basically always timeless, save for the blue eyeliner, which wasn't really all that disastrous.

Princess Diana stopped wearing blue eyeliner.

I have gone to see the traveling Diana dresses exhibits a couple of times. Once, many years back-probably 15+ years ago and the last time about 4 years ago when another collection came through town. The second one that came through was the Althorp tour so I got to also see some of her childhood things. The little trunk she packed for school was adorable and heartbreaking at the same time. I couldn't imaging packing my kids off at such a young age and sending them to boarding school.

I truly enjoyed viewing her clothes and personal items-they are much more magnificent in person for sure.

I got to see the exhibit at Kensington last spring. I loved every minute of it.

Sketches of outfits designed for Princess Diana’s 1986 Gulf Tour are set to fetch thousands at auction – including a burka created for Saudi Arabia

    Diana enlisted designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel to create outfit for tour
    The duo were asked to make dresses that 'conformed to local customs'
    The collection includes a sketch of a black and white silk evening dress

Whoever is handling this is not very business savvy; with the right kind of handling, these dresses and sketches could fetch millions, not just thousands. I admit I was surprised that when Diana auctioned her dresses, that she did not make more than just a couple million. Those dresses were priceless and legendary and they were sold very cheaply. Not much was raised for charity and not much was accomplished. Does no one in the RF know how to do anything effectively?

For reasons I do not know, the Windsors are so timid and afraid of actually having to accomplish something. Like raising real money for charity, or actually running a charity that doesn't have massive overhead expenses, or something that in fact gets a real problem solved. I am certain they have had the best help, but thing is, that the Windsors do not LISTEN and actually follow through on good advice. Clearly the courtiers aren't being trusted, much less listened to and those the Windsors are listening to are not those who have good intentions.
