Diana, princess of Wales fashion : Mermaid dress Catherine Walker, 1986



Dubbed ‘my mermaid dress’ by Diana, every inch of this dramatic gown is embellished with sequins and was designed to shimmer under the flash-bulbs that followed her every move.
Typical of her so-called Dynasty phase — after the dramatic shoulder pads and lavish fabrics favoured in the glamorous TV show — Walker’s evening dress was beautifully embroidered by the legendary textile designer Jakob Schlaepfer and it clung to every curve.
With its swooping neckline, structured shoulders and ruched detailing — all of which highlighted her slender waist — it was an outfit designed to show off Diana, the dazzlingly desirable woman.
