13. Princess Diana’s revenge dress
We could have written this whole feature based on Diana’s wardrobe. Second to her wedding dress was the iconic ‘revenge’ dress designed by Christina Stambolian that she wore to a party the day Prince Charles publicly admitted he had been having an affair with Camilla. It marked a whole new phase in the royal’s life.
