'Glimpse of a Modern Princess': Diana's iconic gowns to go on display

22 MARCH 2012

Diana, Princess of Wales was renowned the world over for her elegant and inspiring style.

Now, fans of the late royal will be able to see some of her most iconic outfits up close at her former home, Kensington Palace.

The star of the exhibition will be an Elizabeth and David Emmanuel black taffeta floor-length gown that she wore on her first official engagement at the Royal Opera House in 1981.

And another frock from the five-piece collection, called Diana: Glimpses Of A Modern Princess, will be a black silk Versace shift dress, which she wore to the premiere of Apollo 13 in 1995.

Completing the set is an ivory dinner dress, a monochrome cocktail dress and a pretty chiffon sari affair.

The palace recently reopened after undergoing a £12 million restoration.

The exhibition will open to the public on March 26 and will coincide with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
