Princess Diana was the most fashionable dressers of her time. One of her most popular wardrobe choices was the black Emanuel gown worn for her first public appearance. When the young Princess, then 19, officially stepped out for the first time since her engagement to Prince Charles in a low-cut black taffeta gown, a fashion fascination was born; and seemingly, it still lives on today. Since that night the dress was just thought to be lost, somewhere in Prince Charles' bedroom probably. Not so, the designers Elizabeth and David Emanuel announced not long ago that their creation had been with them all along. The Princess had simply dropped it off with them to be altered.
On June 8th at the Kerry Taylor Auction in London this iconic dress, along with Diana's original wedding dress will be up for bid. And we hope to God someone worthy gets them. There will be nothing worse than seeing these timeless pieces of history end up on someone with pink hair and converse running around the mall.
