Designers have certainly chosen a symbolic moment to stage an early 1990s revival – evoking a time when Princess Diana’s star power was at its peak and her sense of style at its most assured. In fact, Diana’s influence has been very much part of the zeitgeist during the last few years. Here, we look back at some of today’s fashion stars who have channelled the Princess of Wales.

Diana loved the asymmetric look for evening gowns. Gwyneth Paltrow walked the 2015 Oscars red carpet in this sculptural Ralph and Russo number.

Bella Hadid looks regal in a short dress with a train, like the famous Christina Stambolian one worn by the Princess in 1996.

Wearing a double-breasted jacket-dress, Hailey Baldwin seemed to take a style tip from Diana, who triumphed in a similar tartan outfit during a trip to Japan.

The Diana-style ankle socks and heels combo has been making a comeback over the last few seasons, adopted by stars like Rihanna.
