You guys are my heroes!! I thought I was the only one obsessed with Diana's clothing! The Debrett's book is really good, but like you say, it duplicates outfits. The older books from the early eighties are good for her early public life, but it's more difficult as the palace wasn't releasing details about her clothing anymore after, say, 1985.

I'd have to say Dressing Diana is also another good source of clothing info. But I don't think you'd ever have every outfit.
:)

No I don't say we will see every outfit she worn. But you know what they have been dresses she has worn only once and new and you hardly see it I found this out since her death and I was so shocked cause it's odd they will show pix of her alot she worn before yet no coverage of a new dress/suit. Very strange. Yes even when they have fashion books on her it's amazing the stuff they ignore or show over and over. I mean from 1981-1997 she was in the public eye you'd think someone would do a comprehensive yearly diary showing the new outfits for each year or when she did something different for any outfit. But instead they go by what another book done with the same mistakes it's like they don't want to put the work into it and just copy someone elses book.
You know if I were to suddenly find myself a millionaire I'd get Squidgy, Lady Jean and anyone else who could help and we'd publish our OWN fashion diary. Yep that's what I'd want to do.

I would be first in line to buy it! It would be a great historical piece as well as a great book for Diana fans.
It would definately be better than another "tell all" about her life.

Oh yes the beautiful bellville sassson blue floral dress first worn to australia in Jan 1988 when she went to chruch with a blue pillbox Jackie O hat. I always loved that dress but I love the color blue. Personally I hate floral prints but that's just on me. Anyway she did wear this 11 times. She worn it for the Q.Mother's 89th bday also Nigeria in March 90 as well as the other times you said and several times in London.
Thanks for the count on the blue floral dress, Canadiana. I love how you can give a total for how often each outfit was worn. I'm taking it as a challenge: I've got to take time to go through my info and see if I can match your totals.

I am completely obessessed with Diana's fashion, the ultimate guide to her life in fashion would be my dreambook. I have so many favourites that Diana wore where do I start?

Don't laugh, but I have always loved Diana's going away outfit on her wedding day. The lovely peach colour of the outfit suited her wonderfully.

In the last year of her life she wore a two piece suit by Catherine Walker, it was blue with 3 larger gold buttons on the front. It was so simple, so wonderful.

The iceblue coatdress she wore to the enthronement ceremony Japan's emperor in 1990 with the veiled headband. Another Catherine Walker, and gorgeous.

Again, don't laugh, an Escada coat she wore in Germany in 1987. It was bright yellow and black striped. Only she could have pulled that off!

Also, same tour in 1987 in Germany, she wore a camel coloured coat with faux beaver fur cuffs, collar and matching faux beaver fur beret. Wonderful as well.

Also, Diana had a suit, it was simply pink and purple that she wore to Hungary in 1989 or 1990. I always liked it as well.

I know alot of people think the Denmark's Mary could be the next Diana with her fashion, but no way. Diana could wear anything and make it work, Mary just doesn't have that ability.

I too liked the yellow and black "bumblebee" coat, and the pink suit trimmed in purple. My all-time favorite of Diana's suits is the Catherine Walker pink with a 7/8 length swing coat. She wore it a lot (Canadiana can probably provide us with a total count.) I think the first time was in France in Nov. 1992. Sometimes she wore it with a navy shell, sometimes without. At the Garter Ceremony in June 1993, she wore just the suit with a multi-strand pearl necklace--if I remember correctly-- and a matching hat. Then she added navy gloves, handbag, shoes, and hose, which toned down all that pink.

That was a great look, another favourite of mine, the ice blue satin maternity dress by Catherine Walker she wore to the Indiana Jones premiere while pregnant with Harry. I find that Diana and Catherine Walker were so far ahead in fashion. Diana started to dress very modern, example, no shoulderpads simple clean lines in the 1980s!

This is definitely one of my favorite later outfits for her. My top five favorites (daywear) are:

1. The burgandy velvet suit she wore on her first visit to Wales.

2. The white and navy striped coat-dress she wore in Italy with the jaunty nautical hat.

3. The pink checked coatdress with veiled hat that she wore to Ascot, among other places.

4. The long black coat with the veiled bowler hat worn in Paris in 1988 (I think I have the year right).

5. Her going away outfit - that color is gorgeous, and she looked so sharp and royal.

I haven't checked this site for a while as my computer crashed!!! I think it would be a good idea if we all got together somehow and printed our own book as someone suggested in an earlier post. That would be so cool and it would be from the people who loved her the most (okay not as much as her sons) but you know what I mean.

Now that I see this thread, I remembered I came across a video some days ago. I like the part where she speaks Italian, she´s so sweet! She even blushes.
