The dress was designed by Christina Stambolian and would have been priceless as it was a bespoke item. If you fancy recreating this iconic outfit though, look no further than Club L London, who have an almost exact replica of the dress, for just £45. And what's more, it's even called the 'Revenge.'

Diana donned the plunging Christina Stambolian cocktail dress when she attended a dinner at the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens, on the very same evening a documentary aired in which Prince Charles confessed to his affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles, now the Duchess of Cornwall.

Diana reportedly bought the dress three years earlier in 1991 but considered it too daring to wear. It's said that Diana didn't originally plan to wear the dress on the night. For the event, she had actually chosen a Valentino gown, but opted to wear the CS number after designs were leaked to the public. The fancy design was made with draped chiffon, and she added a pair of silk Manolo Blahnik heels and her favourite sapphire and pearl choker necklace. Just exquisite!
