Of course, Princess Diana will always remain in the history of the world, as well as in the minds and hearts of all her fans. The star had always impressed with a unique style and a simple elegance. Now, fans will be able to admire her most iconic outfits, during a new exhibit, Diana: Her Fashion Story. The exhibit will be available at the place that has become well-known as Diana’s former home, of course, the Kensington Palace.
In this exhibit that officially starts on February 24 fans will see no less than 25 impressive outfits of the famous princess. And of course, they will also be able to discover the reasoning for some fashion choices that Diana made. “What you see in the exhibition is a real evolution of the princess’s style,” one of the reps for the exhibition said according to People.
“You see that New Romanticism of the early ’80s and all the frills and ruffles that were fashionable at the time, but you see through the course of the display the princess really getting a sense of her own style . . . to this fantastically glamorous, self-confident stylish woman,” the statement added. The same statement explained that initially, Diana had very limited clothing choices.
However, her style had grown and she “learned what would work in a public capacity. She had a great design eye and a real knack for fashion. Although she wanted to focus on her work, she wanted to use fashion to help that.” Of course, the exhibition also includes the famous so-called “Elvis dress” that Diana wore to the British Fashion Awards.
Diana also decided to abandon the practice of wearing gloves all because she wanted to be closer to people. “She abandoned the royal protocol of wearing gloves because she liked to hold hands when visiting people or shake hands and have direct contact. She also stopped wearing hats because she said, ‘You can’t cuddle a child in a hat.'” Diana’s style also changed following her divorce from Prince Charles and this aspect can also be easily noticed at the exhibit.
