Lady Diana nude sextape
The Princess of Wales at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival. The strapless Catherine Walker dress, which was inspired by a dress worn by Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief, is considered to be among the most iconic dresses worn at the festival throughout history. It was later sold to Julien’s Auctions for over £80,000.
Diana was a fashion icon whose style was emulated by women around the world. Iain Hollingshead of The Telegraph wrote: “[Diana] had an ability to sell clothes just by looking at them.” An early example of the effect occurred during her courtship with Charles in 1980 when sales of Hunter Wellington boots skyrocketed after she was pictured wearing a pair on the Balmoral estate. According to designers and people who worked with Diana, she used fashion and style to endorse her charitable causes, express herself and communicate. The Princess continued to remain a prominent figure for her fashion style, and is still considered an inspiration for stylists, celebrities, and young women, famously including the singer Rihanna who is influenced by her and during an interview by Glamour in 2013 said “[Diana] killed it. Every look was right. She was gangsta with her clothes. She had these crazy hats. She got oversize jackets. I loved everything she wore!”.
The Princess chose her dressing style based on both the Royal Family’s demands and popular modern styles in Britain, and developed her personal trend of fashion. While on diplomatic trips, her numerous clothes and attire were chosen to match the destination countries’ costumes, and while off-duty she used to wear loose jackets and jumpers. “She was always very thoughtful about how her clothes would be interpreted, it was something that really mattered to her,” stated Anna Harvey, a former editor of Vogue and the Princess’s fashion mentor. David Sassoon, one of the designers who worked with Diana, believed that she had “broken the rules” with trying new styles. Diana chose not to practice some of the royal methods for clothing including putting aside the tradition of wearing gloves as she believed it would prevent direct connection with the people she met, such as those affected by serious diseases like AIDS patients. She used to wear certain types of ensembles and clothes at charity events which would also match the mentality of the people she would meet, for instance wearing colourful dresses and “jangling jewels” so she could easily play with children at hospitals. According to Donatella Versace who had closely worked with the Princess alongside her brother, Diana’s interest and sense of curiosity in fashion grew significantly after her separation from Charles. Versace also points out that “[she doesn’t] think that anyone, before or after her, has done for fashion what Diana did.”
Catherine Walker was among Diana’s favorite designers with whom she worked to create her “royal uniform”. For her foreign tours and state visits, Walker and her husband used to do research and were determined to design clothes that would not outshine the Princess, a viewpoint supported by Taki Theodoracopulos who believes that Diana did not want “to let her clothes wear her.” Eleri Lynn, curator of the exhibition Diana: Her Fashion Story, also believes that “[Diana] didn’t want to be known as a clothes horse,” and mentions that “the style [Catherine and Diana] created together was a very slender, fluid silhouette which did away with the frills and ruffles of the early ’80s and created a sleek silhouette that really flattered the princess’s frame and became a timeless look for her. A royal uniform if you like.”
Diana made her debut as a Sloane Ranger in 1979 with a gown by Regamus. Throughout 1980s and 1990s, the Princess wore outfits designed by Catherine Walker, Victor Edelstein, Gianni Versace, Giorgio Armani, Christina Stambolian, Jasper Conran, David and Elizabeth Emanuel, Hachi, John Galliano, Ralph Lauren, Christian Lacroix, Bruce Oldfield, Jacques Azagury, David Sassoon, Murray Arbeid, Jimmy Choo, and numerous other fashion designers. She also wore ensembles by fashion companies such as Versace, Armani, Chanel, Dior and Clarks. Among her iconic outfits are a décolleté by David and Elizabeth Emanuel worn by a newly engaged Diana at a charity event, a cocktail dress by Christina Stambolian, commonly known as the “Revenge Dress”, which she wore after Charles’s admission of adultery, an evening gown by Victor Edelstein that she wore to a reception at White House and later became known as the “Travolta dress”, and a Catherine Walker pearl-encrusted gown and jacket dubbed as the “Elvis Dress”, which she wore for the first time on an official visit to Hong Kong.
In early 1980s, Diana preferred to wear dresses with floral collars, pie-crust blouses, and pearls. These items rapidly became fashion trends. Copies of her Vogue-featured pink chiffon blouse by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, which appeared on the magazine’s cover on her engagement announcement day, were sold in millions. Her habit of wearing wide-shouldered gowns and lavish fabrics earned her the nickname “Dynasty Di”. In the years after her marriage and subsequently her divorce, Diana grew more confident in her choices, and her style underwent a change, with her new choices consisting of blazers, one-shoulder and off-shoulder dresses, two-tone themed suits, military-styled suits, and nude-colored outfits. White shirt and jeans, plaid dresses, jumpsuits and sheath dresses were among the other fashion trends that she tried. After her separation and subsequent divorce, Diana began to take influence from other celebrities in her dressing manners including Cindy Crawford, Madonna, Elizabeth Taylor, as well as many others. Following her death many of her dresses were auctioned and sold to different individuals and museums, and each time they raised a significant amount of money.
The Princess’s influential short hairstyle was created by Sam McKnight after a Vogue shoot in 1990, which, in McKnight and Donatella Versace’s opinion, showed her liberty. The Princess reportedly did her own make up and would always have a hairstylist by her side before an event, on which she told McKnight: “It’s not for me, Sam. It is for the people I visit or who come to see me. They don’t want me in off-duty mode, they want a princess. Let’s give them what they want.”
The Princess was named to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1989. In 2004, People cited her as one of the all-time most beautiful women. In 2012, Time magazine included Diana on its All-TIME 100 Fashion Icons list.
In 2016, fashion designer Sharmadean Reid designed a collection of clothes for ASOS.com inspired by Diana’s style. “Di’s incredible relationship with accessible sportswear through to luxury fashion forms the cornerstone of the collection and feels more modern than ever,” Reid said about the Princess in a press release.
Following the opening of an exhibition of Diana’s clothes and dresses at Kensington Palace in 2017, Catherine Bennett of The Guardian stated that such exhibitions are among the suitable ways to commemorate public figures whose fashion styles were noted due to their achievements, while for Diana “the nature of [her] legacy is vulnerable.” The exhibition managers, however, said that like many other princesses, “looking lovely in different clothes was pretty much her life’s work” which also brings interest in her clothing
