1985 Diana wore this wine velvet Catherine Walker dress to a London premiere. Although it looked conservative from the front, the gown had an open back that the princess accentuated with a long pearl necklace worn backwards.
“In one of the last letters I received from her [Diana] just before she died, she said: ‘I want to share this very meaningful quote with you and send you lots of love.’ It was from The Little Prince. It said: ‘I have to go now to the stars. And one day when you look at the stars, you will remember me.’ It was almost prophetic.” - Lisa Yacoub.Diana, Princess of Wales. (1st July 1961 - 31st August 1997)
