Follow the evolution of the Princess's style with Diana: Her Fashion Story at Kensington Palace.

Discover how Diana used her image to inspire people and to champion the causes she cared about through an extraordinary display of some of her most iconic outfits. Take a closer look at the glamorous gowns from the 1980s and the chic working outfits she used to wear in the 1990s, and see how Diana established herself as a trendsetter, princess and patron.

Diana’s iconic landmines outfit, worn during her high-profile trip to Angola in 1997, forms the centrepiece of the display. Other exhibition highlights include Victor Edelstein's iconic ink blue velvet gown, which Diana famously wore at the White House when she danced with John Travolta, and the pale pink Emanuel blouse worn for the Princess's engagement portrait by Lord Snowdon in 1981.

On display for the first time is a blue tartan Emanuel suit, worn for an official visit to Venice in the 1980s. The suit was only recently rediscovered and acquired at auction by Historic Royal Palaces.

Marking 20 years since her death, Kensington Palace has also created a new temporary White Garden to celebrate Diana's life. Inspired by memories of the Princess's life and style, the garden features pots of classic white roses surrounding a reflective pool.

The exhibition runs until early 2019. Check back later for the confirmed end date.
