Princess Diana's Famous Versace Gown Can Soon Be Yours (If You Have $30,000+ to Spare)
On June 27, a few days shy of what would have been Princess Diana’s 54th birthday, the royal’s famous Atelier Versace gown, which she wore for a 1991 photo shoot with photographer Patrick Demarchelier, is going up for auction. (The image from the shoot was later featured on a 1997 cover of Harper’s Bazaar after the Princess’s untimely death.)
According to auction’s website, the figure-hugging silk gown is embellished with gold-tone studs and pyramids and features faceted glass in dazzling shades of blue and white. It’s reportedly the first gown Gianni Versace (Donatella’s brother and founder of the label) designed for Diana.
The auction is open to the public, but you’ll need a pretty big piggy bank to go after this piece of royal history. Bidding starts at $30,000 and the estimated price of the gown tops out around $80,000.
