Find out how much Princess Diana’s dresses including the one she wore to the Cannes Film Festival in 1987 fetched at auction…

Two of Princess Diana’s dresses, created by one of the princess’s favourite designers Catherine Walker, have been sold at auction for over £80k each at an auction house in LA.

CANNES BOST MOMENTS

Princess Diana was elegant as ever at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival wearing a powder blue bandeau chiffon dress with matching scarf. And on the eve of this year’s festival, that very dress has been sold at auction for £81k.

Bought by an unnamed museum from the LA auction house, Julien’s Auctions, the same museum also bought the embroidered black crepe evening gown that Princess Diana wore on a State visit to India in 1992.

THE ROYAL WEDDING

Catherine Walker was the label Kate Middleton’s mother Carol chose to wear at the Royal Wedding. Whether it was a polite reference to Prince William’s late mother or not, both women certainly had good taste.
