Diana's Evening Dress Auctioned for Over a Million Dollars

In a remarkable turn of events at Julien’s Auctions in Los Angeles, a captivating evening dress once worn by the late Princess Diana has shattered records, commanding an astonishing $1.1 million.

The ballerina-length gown, an exquisite creation by designer Jacques Azagury in black and blue, exceeded all expectations by selling for an astounding 11 times its initial estimate. This groundbreaking sale sets a new benchmark for the highest price ever paid for one of Princess Diana’s dresses, far surpassing the previous record of $604,800.

Princess Diana first graced the iconic dress during a memorable evening in Florence in 1985. A year later, she charmed Vancouver with the same ensemble, leaving an indelible mark on fashion history.

The dress, featuring a long black velvet bodice adorned with blue stars and a two-tier blue organza skirt, embellished with a sash and bow, took center stage at Julien’s Auctions as part of the four-day Hollywood Legends sale, conducted in collaboration with Turner Classic Movies (TCM).

The auction house, understandably thrilled by the extraordinary outcome, declared,

Julien’s now holds the new world record for the most expensive dress worn by Princess Diana sold at auction.

Alongside the sale of this record-breaking dress were other notable pieces from Princess Diana’s wardrobe. A pink chiffon blouse, worn for her 1981 engagement portrait to then-Prince Charles by Lord Snowdon, fetched an impressive $381,000, far surpassing its estimated value of $80,000 – $100,000.

Designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, the creative minds behind Diana’s iconic wedding dress, the blouse now secures its own place in royal fashion history.

The fervor surrounding the auction underscores the enduring fascination with Princess Diana’s timeless style and the continued admiration for her sartorial choices. This record-setting sale stands as a testament to the lasting impact of the People’s Princess on the world, where her grace, charm, and impeccable fashion sense continue to captivate audiences globally.
