She was called the Queen of Human Hearts.
Princess Diana was without a doubt an icon of style and elegance, full of natural grace and class. She was ahead of her time in many ways, including fashion. To this day she is considered one of the best dressed aristocrats, who has many imitators. Her creations very often broke the court dress code and perfectly expressed her personality and individuality. We bring back the most famous hairstyles of Princess Diana. Here they are!
The wedding dress
Our list could not have started any other way. The most famous hairstyle of Princess Diana is of course the one she wore at her wedding in 1981.
The phenomenal, almost theatrical dress was an inspiration for countless women. It was made of six different materials, including tulle, silk and lace, with an eight-meter-long train and ten thousand hand-embroidered pearls.
The whole was completed with shoes. And not just any shoes – silk, elegant and specially designed for this occasion. Of course the Windsor family tiara and the blue bow sewn on the waist, which was supposed to herald good luck, could not be missing.
The dress of vengeance
In the history of fashion there is also the revenge dress, which Princess Diana wore in 1994 at the Vanity Fair charity event organized in London. How did it get its name? Well, on that night the news about Prince Charles’ affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles spread around the world.
The memorable creation is the so-called little black dress from the atelier of Christina Stambolian, sewn from silk, set with a magnificent necklace of pearls. It was hard to pass by this dress indifferently. Lady Di looked phenomenal in it and like a million dollars.
This time we are talking about the dress from Victor Edelstein, in which the princess appeared in 1985 at the charity reception of the presidential couple in the White House.
Dark velvet, mermaid cut with open shoulders and a slightly flared bottom, which was especially noticeable during the famous dance with John Travolta. It was hard to take your eyes off her
Pregnant Evening Gown
In this list we could not miss Lady Di’s 1982 maternity dress, in which she appeared at London’s Barbican Centre for the Arts. The dress in the color of red wine was designed by David Sassoon.

In 1983, the movie “Octopussy” about the adventures of the famous agent James Bond premiered. Princess Diana appeared in a snow-white dress by the Japanese designer Hachi, asymmetrical, with long sleeves on one side.
The dress was covered with thousands of shimmering beads. The dress could be auctioned off. It reached then the amount of 60 thousand pounds.
Arctic blue at the premiere in Cannes
In 1987, Lady Di appeared on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival in a dress inspired by Grace Kelly’s style from Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Thief in the Hotel”.
Designer Catherine Walker designed the gown with a veil in a unique color of arctic blue. The whole was made of tulle. Later this creation was also sold at auction – for 81 thousand pounds.
Classic white Versace
Princess Diana wore not only maxi dresses, but also fitted, knee-length dresses. Among other things, a white dress from the Italian fashion house Versace went down in history, which she wore to a charity event for Bosnian children in Italy.
