Remembering Princess Diana
Princess Diana was a true style icon. As Lady Diana Spencer, she owned one formal dress, but by 1991, her closet held 95 evening gowns, 176 suits, 200 purses and 250 pairs of shoes!
She dutifully wore long, conservative gowns as a member of the Royal Family, but following her separation from Prince Charles, Diana adopted a streamlined look that included sheath dresses from Versace and Christian Lacroix.
But her legacy has always been her generosity, not her style. Before her tragic death, she auctioned off 79 gowns at a Christie's auction that raised $6 million for AIDS and breast cancer charities.
