Princess Diana's Gown Sells for $276,000
One of the hottest items hitting the auction block in the recent past, Princess Diana's famous black taffeta gown has been sold for a hefty $276,621 price tag.
Designed by Elizabeth Emanuel and David Emanuel, Diana wore the darling frock during her first public outing as Prince Charles' fiancée
The dress was purchased by Chilean fashion museum Fundación Museo De La Moda, with the auction taking place at Kerry Taylor Auctions in London on Tuesday (June 9).
Talking about Princess Diana's Emanuel & Emanuel gown, auctioneer Kerry Taylor said, “As the weeks before her wedding progressed, Diana lost so much weight that she returned the gown to the Emanuels to have it taken in. The alterations required were so drastic that they decided it would be easier to re-make a smaller version for her. They kept the original and forgot about it only re-discovering it quite recently.”
