Princess Diana was the first wife of Prince Charles as of their marriage at St Pauls Cathedral in London, 29th July 1981.
A fashion icon throughout her life, this photograph shows her wearing a black pleated chiffon dress, with floating side panel, by Christina Stamboulian, during a party given at the Serpentine Gallery in London in 1996. This dress was also known as ‘The Revenge Dress’ as she was seen wearing it on the night Prince Charles admitted adultery on a TV show.
Diana was said to “reflect the times” through her fashion choices – the dress is elegant and sleek – showing off her shoulders and pulling in her waist. It’s an iconic photo of the princess; taken by Jayne Fincher who was a professional and royal photographer for almost 20 years and capturing many memorable photos of Princess Diana.
