In 1991, Princess Diana was papped by one of her official photographers, Patrick Demarchelier, for a private photoshoot, in which she looked relaxed and laid back.
The gown for the shoot was acquired directly from Versace’s atelier and was handed to the Princess on a hanger reading Lady Diana.
The striking silver blue dress was Beautifully decorated with gold tone studs and pyramids, blue topaz and aqua marine. The silk-lined interior features an Atelier Versace label - the Haute Couture line of The House of Versace and indicates one-of-a-kind pieces.
After Diana, Princess of Wales’ untimely death in August 1997, the shoot took on a new depth.
The shimmering blue-green dress then featured on the cover of the November 1997 Harper’s Bazaar Diana A Tribute to a Princess issue and Rosalind Coward’s Diana: The Portrait.
