Princess Diana’s Most Iconic Looks (Including Her Revenge Dress)

In Princess Diana—and her unforgettable fashion sense—we trust



The hit historical drama TV series that centers around the life of Queen Elizabeth II, The Crown, is finally in its fifth season. This chapter covers the 1990s, which was a chaotic and turbulent period of the Queen’s reign. This season included Diana and Charles’ divorce, and The Crown was sure to showcase their own take on the infamous revenge dress. This sleek dress reminds us just how iconic Princess Diana’s sense of style was. So, we compiled some of the most iconic Princess Di looks that we can only dream of pulling off.

The wedding dress of our dreams

A wedding dress befitting of royalty


With the whole world watching, royal weddings are a grand affair. And Diana’s dress was nothing less than perfect. With extensive, puffy sleeves, a full skirt and even a 25-foot train, Lady Di’s wedding dress was plucked out of our fairytales. Giving everything it was meant to give and more, it made a bold statement while keeping the princess-to-be breathtakingly beautiful.



Errand-day athleisure 

Booked and busy while still looking chic


Princess Di walked so we could run, and we’re still wearing this combo decades later. We would wear her take on athleisure every day if we could (whether to the gym, on a coffee run, out for a hot girl walk or even to lounge around the house). Her oversized sweater complements the flattering fit of her biker shorts. Topping it off with a pair of white sneakers, she nails athleisure to a tee.



Timeless blue and white

Classy, classy, classy


Seriously, what else can we say? Diana slayed the classic white and royal blue ensemble, finishing off the look with a statement headpiece. The outfit, tied by only two hues, makes it put together without sacrificing her flair for fashion. She balanced business casual with glamour—something she always did perfectly.



Fairytale realness

A real-life princess (literally!)


Princess Diana’s iridescent white off-the-shoulder gown is something we only saw in fairytales. Dainty yet head-turning, this piece is an elegant work of art with a sheer top and intricate patterns on the bottom. To balance off the skin, she opted for a thick pearl choker. The look suited Di, making her look absolutely radiant.



Revenge never looked this good

Introducing the black dress sharp enough to cut a man


Brilliant. Incredible. Amazing. Show-stopping. Spectacular. Iconic. What else can we say? Princess Diana’s revenge dress is the little black dress. Designed by Christina Stambolian, Diana wore the piece on the same night Prince Charles confessed to adultery (on television, may we add. Men.). Paired with a neck of pearls and drop earrings, this look screams, “I don’t need a man.” This unforgettable piece of fashion history is one that celebrities still pattern now.
