Diana: Style Icon: A Celebration of the fashion of Lady Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


With famous fans such as Rihanna still referring to Lady Di as one of her style icons, and Hailey Bieber paying homage to her athleisure looks, it's clear that Princess Diana is one of the most influential style icons of the 20th century. Throughout the 80s and 90s she was known as a loving mother, philanthropist, 'Princess of the People' and daring and bold fashionista. In The Legend of Di Dan Jones celebrates the style evolution of Lady Diana Spencer -- from the innocent see-through skirt faux-pas, to the off-the-rack blue David Sassoon suit and pussy bow ensemble worn on her engagement to Prince Charles, the 25-foot train on her Elizabeth and David Emmanuel wedding dress, the 1996 black Christina Stambolian 'revenge dress', bike pants with Virgin Atlantic sweatshirt going-home-from-the-gym look, and more.

Dan will chart how Di's style evolved from the twee Laura Ashley-loving 19-year-old when she first joined the monarchy in 1981, to a bold and confident fashion influencer in the 90s. Diana had the the knack of following Royal Etiquette yet making up her own fashion rules, influencing millions of women across the globe along the way. From her frilly pussy bow blouses, to one-shoulder spangly dresses, statement chokers, colourful suits and jeans with blazer ensembles, this is a collection of her best-loved fashion moments -- from the red carpet to heading home from the gym and walking through minefields.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, and featuring over 50 of Diana's most iconic looks, as well as profiles of her go-to designers, this is a keepsake for die-hard Di fans and fashion-lovers alike.
