Diana, Princess of Wales in fashion the tuxedo dress -Bellville Sassoon, 1989



The Princess eventually started to stretch her boundaries with more overtly fashionable styles. With its white cuffs and collar, this cocktail dress is a playful interpretation of the masculine tuxedo, which Diana, with her 34-27-34 model proportions, could carry off with aplomb.
Worn here to a performance of The Marriage Of Figaro by the English National Opera in 1991, the starkness of the black and white silk satin is softened with glass beading and a girlish bow
The dress was bought in 1997 by Paris Match magazine for £30,000 and given away as a competition prize.
