Overview

Admired not only for her role as a princess but also as a leader in fashion, Diana's sense of style captivated the media and the public during her short life. Women all over the world took their fashion cues from the Princess of Wales and followed her metamorphosis from awkward teenager to glamorous international fashion icon.

Aware of the impression her fashion choices made, Diana quickly and deftly made the leap from dressing for herself to dressing for the media. After the birth of her second son, Harry, she took on more sophisticated styles and chose designers she felt understood her, including Catherine Walker, Victor Edelstein, and Bruce Oldfield. Later, after her separation from Prince Charles, she gained confidence and turned to a wider range of designers, such as Moschino, Chanel, Versace, and Stambolian. Shorter hemlines and brighter colors, along with a more modern hairstyle, reflected her increased confidence.

Stunningly illustrated with more than two hundred photographs and original drawings of designs-some bearing the princess's own handwritten comments--Diana: Queen of Style features interviews with Diana's favorite designers and advisors, and celebrates her most important outfits, along with her hairstyles, accessories, and the stylish touches that became her trademarks. Containing rare insights into how Diana chose her outfits, and what it was like for top designers to have the princess as a client, this unique volume is a tribute to the Queen of Style and a perfect pick for any fashion-conscious fan.

    Wonderful Sourcebook of Diana's fashions

    I agree with the other reviews - this book was wonderful. Many beautiful photos with details of the design and construction of Diana's most fabulous dresses. The section on the auction dresses is worth the price of the book alone! A 'must-have' for those who are hooked on Diana's fashion sense and style.

    summary of diana's working wardrobe

    The author's summary of the discussions between Diana and her designers and the relationship between her personal preferences and her professional image as Princess of Wales is very revealing. Far too often, Diana has been portrayed as a fashion slave who was used by the fashion industry to sell their products. Not so! She had very definite ideas about fabric, color and details as she had truly studied photographs of herself and had an increasing awareness over the years of dressing properly for the occasion. The author relates many personal details about Diana's favorite gowns and suits and how she changed her look with accessories. There are many pictures of the clothing from different angles. So many pictures in magazines and newspapers only showed them from the front view only. Also, for those interested in the charity auction at Christie's the author gives details of the bidding and what the dresses actually sold brought at bid. I have about 20 Diana books and there are many excellent photographs I have never seen before. If you can find this book on the open market, as I was lucky enough to do, buy it.
