Re: The snowman sweater.

Squidgy, If you read the article under Canadiana's photo of Diana in that sweater, it says that in December (that would be '84), the Duchess of Kent was photographed wearing it. Then a few weeks later, Diana turned up wearing it (or a similar one). When I saw that photo just now, I recognized that sweater from the photo of the Duchess, which I have in a small book called The Royal Christmas Book. But that's in black-and-white, and you beat me to it with one in color, which I'd never seen. Thank you!

Her skin and eyes are stunning here - please click on it to enlarge.

Canadiana - thank you for providing the correct date! That was a pretty dress that wasn't worn often enough, in my view.

I'm confused! Did Diana wear the pretty blue spaghetti-strap dress on both June 23 and July l5, or is this another instance of the Fashion Diary giving the wrong date? I too thought it was worn at the Royal Academy July 15.

Here are a couple more pics -- one wearing the wrap, one carrying it.

Here's another photo from May 17, 1983 (the pink ruffled dress, though this is b/w). They were at an exhibit called "Renaissance at Sutton Place." (In the color pic posted by Lady Jean, I think Diana is listening to Charles' speech.)

As far as I know she only wore it June 23. For the longest time I thought it was July 15th too, until I looked it up in the Court Circular and saw it was really June 23rd. So yes, another instance of the Fashion Diary getting it wrong!

Thanks for the additional photos, Umbrellagirl.

And now I see the description in the Fashion Diary of the Sutton Place night pink gown indicates she wore a "black lace diamond studded collar".... when clearly she is wearing a sapphire choker . If she wore such a piece of jewelry I would love to see it.

It looks to me like an earlier date, 1992 or 1993. Her hair was much longer in Nov'96. It may be a blue dress with yellow/red swells.

Mirrorpix recently changed their pictures. They used to be thumbnail size, but now are quite a bit larger. Unfortunately they also got rid of some of their rarer pictures of Diana, but they still have some lesser seen ones.

Incas and Sassie,
Thank you for the photo of that blue print dress. I don't remember ever seeing it before. I did notice "splotches" on the dress in the b/w pic I posted, but I was so intent on thinking it was the lilac dress that I passed them off as a trick of the light -- dappled shade, or something??? It was a case of seeing what you want to see, I guess. :o I'm glad to stand corrected.

So, do you all think that the b/w (in Post #187) is the same occasion in Birmingham? Is it the same necklace?
