This blush pink day suit, worn to a children’s bravery awards at the Savoy Hotel in 1997, is a beautiful example of how Diana had pared down her style post-divorce.
Its hip-skimming jacket, flattering three-quarter-length bracelet sleeves, and short pencil skirt show off her toned, trim figure, while the discreet pearl earrings, nude heels and bag (subsequently adopted by the Duchess of Cambridge) have been chosen so as not to distract from the simple beauty of the suit.
Her choices were never dull and this suit has some lovely touches, such as the turned-up cuffs and pearl button details.’
‘The skirt stops above the knee. She knew how to make the most of her best assets and the combination of high hemline and nude heels gives the impression of endless legs.’
