The Day Prince Charles Admitted To His Affair, Diana Stunned The World With Her dress

11It was lying unworn

The designer Stambolian, who had designed the dress revealed that the black dress was lying unworn in Diana’s closet for years as it was considered too bold for a royal to wear. This was further proof that Diana was moving away from her inhibited royal style which dictated that she ditch the off-shoulders and mini-dresses. The dress was a huge statement, and her stylist revealed that Diana wanted to look like a million dollars for the gala.

12The pearl necklace

The pearl necklace which Diana was seen wearing with the dress was a huge favourite of the Princess and she had worn it on several occasions. The seven-strand pearl choker had a huge sapphire in the middle and was surrounded by two lines of well-cut diamonds. The diamonds and the sapphires were originally on a brooch which was given to Diana as a wedding present by the Queen herself. Did you know pearls and sapphires were two of Diana’s favourite jewels? Of course, it went brilliantly with the elegant black dress which Diana wore to the gala.

13Princess Diana’s change was visible

Eleni Lynn, who curated an exhibition on Diana a few years back revealed that the payback dress was all about Diana’s evolution. “This was the very opposite of the ‘princess dressing’ that had made headlines in the 1980s. One of her favorite designers, David Sassoon, recalled that ‘there was a tremendous change from the shy little girl who I had initially dressed to this overtly glamorous woman,’” she said.

14What her stylist said

Diana’s stylist said that Diana immortalised the little black dress forever, for every woman. “It’s her smile, her confidence and her shoulders that make these photos so memorable. She’s radiant, happy and in control. Apart from losing her title of HRH, she had done exceedingly well after leaving ‘the firm.’ That night, Diana immortalized a little black dress, and wow, did she do it well,” she said.

15Charles, on the other hand

Charles’s admissions obviously made Diana’s wardrobe choice a lot more significant than she originally intended. Every British newspaper the next day talked about how Diana’s dress was an answer to Charles’s admission about his affair. It is important to note that many people still blame Charles for Diana’s sadness, and of course for the unhappy life she led as a royal. In that light, it is obvious how Diana’s dress would seem so striking.
