One of my favorite hats from Diana, this striking turban is absolutely stunning on the Princess. She lined her eyes in blue as well, and wore her sapphire and diamond stud earrings. A perfect ensemble!
A later look from Diana, I have always loved this glamorous dress, and daring neckline, and the sister dress to this in blue is towards the end of the post. Notice the pleats on the straps?
This is a double score, both the dress and tiara are super favorites of mine. I know it is often called the Elvis dress, but I overlook that. Pearls are so beautiful, too. Sigh.
The sand of the desert and the tan and muted colors of this outfit are fabulous together! Her sapphire engagement ring sparkled as the lone color in the ensemble. The images of her wandering through the ruins are quite striking!
This is one of her best known photos. As Charles took to the TV to declare his infidelity to the world, she donned this little black dress, the iconic Princess of Wales sapphires, and looked radiant and undefeated.
Pretty in pink!
Diana meets His Holiness Pope John Paul II at the Vatican in the traditional black mantilla. Her blond coloring is remarkably lovely with the black lace.
I love the detail on the bodice, the scoop-like neck, and of course, the Wales sapphires.
Jimmy Choo tried to dissuade Diana from wearing such towering heels when she was already 5'10", but she confidently chose to have them made high anyway, and was clearly vindicated.
Beautiful blue, and a square neckline of the later years.
This is a lovely suit, most of all, though, it is a beautiful and comforting photo. Princess Diana and Mother Teresa had a strong friendship probably fostered by their mutual love of the broken and needy. It has been some time since I had these facts surely at my finger tips, but if memory serves, Mother Teresa and Diana saw each other twice the year she died. Once earlier and then again not long before the fatal crash. When news of Diana's accident spread across the globe, Mother Teresa and her nuns rose and spent the night in prayer for the fading Diana. This is certainly a story that should lend peace and comfort to all who admired and loved the Princess of Wales. Mother Teresa followed Diana in death less than a week later.
