In 1986, Princess Diana wore the British Couturier, Murray Arbeid, blue tulle and glitter strapless gown photographed elegantly below in an official portrait by Lord Snowdon and with cherry satin gloves for an evening gala. Eleven years later, the gown was sold at her legendary auction at Christie's benefiting cancer and AIDS charities for $48,300. Twenty-three years after the dress was first designed, we are happy to offer a variation of Diana's famous dress in black tulle. This timeless design is a dress made for dancing and is season-less, yet festive enough for a Holiday party at the White House and red carpet friendly for Hollywood's Award Season. If you crave a dress fit for a Princess, this is an example of royal style famously worn by one of the great fashion icons of our time.
