Ascot 1986, Day Three, June 19:

I have never seen a full-length view of this outfit. Does anyone have one? ( I think that somebody said it's a tunic jacket worn over a black skirt.)

Majesty Magazine (I think) a 1986 People magazine Tim Graham/Corbis/APL

UmbrellaGirl,
I second the request!!! I have ALWAYS wanted to know how that outfit looked!

I hope someone has it, somewhere.

I think her sister Sarah wore it later at an engagement with Diana, if that helps.

In the last pic, the naughty girls are poking the friend ahead of them in the butt with their umbrellas, for which they got in trouble.

Some of my favourite photos of Diana were taken during her very first Ascot in 1981. It was so exciting to see her metamorphisis from young single woman into future princess!

I have a full length picture from Ebay & Diana is wearing a matching green skirt, not a black skirt. (Although personally, I think a black skirt would would have looked better). Sorry I can't post the picture - I don't know who the photographer is.

As Lady Jean mentioned, Sarah wore the outfit for a wedding in Sept 1988. In this picture, you can just see the top of the skirt.

If I was Lady Sarah I would have said, "Don't you have anything else I could borrow?" :p That's just my opinion, though.

I don't believe Diana ever wore this dress again. It was a great dress, but a bit dramatic: eminently suitable for Ascot, but really, where else would you wear it?

I must admit, I'm happy that we never saw this suit again. I really didn't like the cut of it. However, I really like the colour and style of the hat. Did she wear it again?

I always thought that dress was one of the worst. But then how many of us could wear such large flowers on out backsides? LOL!

Cool

I think that dress was relegated to the back of the closet! I remember seeing it in a magazine at the time and thinking, "Ew". It just fit Diana's style.

I always loved that polka-dot hat that matched the polka-dot dress.

And I think Squidgy is corrrect. That is Ascot '88. Diana wore the dress to the Derby in 1986 (it had a peplum attached then), then to a wedding and polo afterwards in 1987 (with the peplum removed), and to Ascot in 1988.

Is this hat (without the bow) the same kind of hat that she wore to Japan? Where it looked like a rising sun? It seems to look like it!

I don't like this outfit either. Personally, I think the bow in front looks silly. And it makes her look hippy, etc.

Yuck!!!

Diana's Engagements: 1981-1997, Complete List

Dear all,

On my computer I have a lot of pictures of Diana. I didn't have a clue when and where the most pictures were taken, so I started organising my picture collection. My picture-progam (Picasa) showed labels for most pictures, containing date and location, so I was lucky with that

I discovered here that there are more Diana-fans, who would like dates and locations, so that's why I created a list with dates/events and locations I know of. No doubt that it isn't complete, and it may contain errors, but I hope that together we can work something out

Feel free to print out the list to keep as reference and/or to correct/add dates and locations.

This is the same suit she wore on the state visit to the US and I think also in Poland.
