Diana, Princess of Wales, set the precedent for a royal style icon by influencing an entire generation of fashion from the ‘80s to ‘90s. Inextricably linked to her public image, Diana’s sartorial choices mixed elegance with whimsy, making fashion history with iconic moments such as the off-the-shoulder black “Revenge Dress” she wore on the day Prince Charles’ interview on his infidelity made it to television, the glittering, high-collared “Elvis Dress” she wore to Hong Kong, and her larger-than-life wedding dress designed by Elizabeth Emanuel. She balanced her glamorous red carpet looks — by designer favourites Catherine Walker and Versace — with her bold ‘80s sportswear and platform sneakers. Today, Diana’s fashion legacy lives on, inspiring collections from the likes of Virgil Abloh’s Off-White and Tory Burch.
