If you’ve ever wanted to dress like a princess, a cool £200,000 might help you accomplish your dream a lot sooner than later.
Ten of Princess Diana’s most iconic dresses will be going up for auction on March 19th, essentially giving women all over the world the ability to own a piece of history.
The collection of dresses was bought at a charity sale held in New York in June 1997, arranged by the Princess a few months before her death in August of that year. The highlight of the collection may be the midnight blue velvet Victor Edelstein gown that Diana wore when she danced with John Travolta at a State dinner given by the White House in November 1985, an experience Travolta later described as being “like a fairytale.”
Another stand-out piece is the dark green velvet dress featuring a small handprint, which could be the mark of one of the late Princess’ then-young sons. Some of the dresses were even photographed while Diana was wearing them by legendary photographers such as Lord Snowdon and Mario Testino.
The dresses are estimated to fetch between £20,000 to £200,000, which is roughly equal to $26,438 – $264,380 – so start saving now!
