I have followed Diana from the start -- I practically memorized her every day dresses and ball gowns, hair styles, jewelry and weight loss issues. I find it appalling the 'flexibility' of fashion writers and royal watchers in the beginning and the current trends regarding Diana's weight. Until Diana publicly admitting to suffering from bulumia the writers treated us commoners to a daily routine of how grand Diana looked. Marvelously 'slim' and glowing with good health! Now the claims are all the writers noticed that Diana was unhealthy. Too slender and obviously pale. All these writers and fashion police KNEW she was sick. Well why didn't they tell the rest of us? We women were almost scolded for not having Diana's slim figure. We were informed Diana worked out and watched her weight so she could look great in her clothes. No she was not 'too slim' in those days we read! This book is another one of those hindsight publications that 'knew' Diana was sick and her slim figure was extreme. I give this book a four star rating for the photographs.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A beautiful book. I enjoyed every page. One request though: Diana was photographed from 1980 until her death. That is a lot of clothes(even if she did wear many outfits more than once). However we basically see the same outfits in all the fashion books with only a few variations. Please prepare a sequel and include some of her other 'forgotten' fashions. Her fans would appreciate the additional book for their collections.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
