The date is Mar. 4 1986.

I've never seen a picture either, which is very unusual for a film premiere. I'm wondering if the event was cancelled, or if Diana cancelled out. Maybe she was tired - she had spent the day at the Commonwealth games & then attended a Garden Party.

February 4 1987 Diana at the premiere of Mosquito Coast. She's wearing that "interesting" (for lack of a better word) orange satin jacket & black skirt that she wore a week later in Portugal.

Thanks for posting this! This version is much better than when she added the bowtie .

Squidgy,
Thank you so much for the "Out of Africa" date.

And also for the "Mosquito Coast" photo. I actually have a picture from that occasion that I found on eBay, which is sort of a side view, and I was sure that the date was wrong, and that it was from Portugal. I simply couldn't believe that Diana would have worn that hideous orange jacket twice, and especially on occasions so close together. I hadn't realized that she did vary it by not wearing the bowtie. I don't know that it's "much" better, Lady Jean, but it's somewhat better. Have you all seen the back view? -- there's a bustle or something on the skirt. I think the caption in "Dressing Diana" says something like, "This was before Diana learned that less is more."

You're welcome Lady Jean & Umbrellagirl.

You know I didn't half mind that outfit. Or well, I should say, I liked half of the outfit. I agree the skirt was horrid, but I liked the jacket, especially as Lady Jean points out when she wore it sans the bowtie. I thought she looked quite good in orange though.

(Ah, too bad we can't post those Ebay pics eh? Sometimes they are the best ones. I wanted to post a picture from the premiere of Short Circuit on Jan 15 1987, but all I have is an Ebay pic. Anyone have a picture from this day that they can post?)

I like the picture of Diana with Anne and the Queen Mother at the movie " A Passage to India". It is a nice picture they look to be enjoying each other's company.

Short circuit premiere (15/1/87)

I achieved this pictures in "Lecturas" (Spanish magazine).
(It's my first picture post, so if I'm doing something wrong, please tell me!!!)


Ooops!! I think they're too big pictures. Can anybody tell me how to put them smaller?

Fabulous pictures Pilar!!!

By far, these are the best I've seen from this engagement. Thank you so much. I don't think she ever wore this outfit again did she?

Thank you, Pilar!

I have studied the one black-and-white photo I have from this premiere, which I found on eBay, trying to figure out the dress. You have given us wonderful, clear views of it.

Thank you so very, very much!!!!!!!!

Pilar,
What wonderful pictures! Thank you for posting.

I wonder why the magazines didn't print more pictures like this? Even in the memoriam pictures, they choose the same pictures over and over.

Anyway, these are awesome.

After the excitement of Pilar's rare photos, the next ones I have are familiar and boring. They are from 1987 film premieres; all the dresses were also worn on other occasions. I'm not even sure these pics are worth posting. However, they do document Diana's film-premiere engagements as to dates and what she wore, so they may be useful to someone.

Here, then, are the 1987 film premieres that I know about. If there are any others, someone please let us know.

1. "Short Circuit," Jan. 15, 1987. The rare photos posted by Pilar.

2. "Mosquito Coast," Feb. 4, 1987. Squidgy posted a photo of this above.

3. "Children of a Lesser God," Feb. 26, 1987. This is another premiere that was listed in the Engagements column of Majesty and/or Royalty mags, but from which I've never seen a photo.

4. "84 Charing Cross Road," Mar. 23, 1987

5. "The Living Daylights," June 29, 1987

6. "Superman IV," July 23, 1987

7. "Dancers," Dec. 7, 1987

Not every pic can be rare or unfamiliar. It's only by sharing that the collectors among the members can discover the rare gems or find images that fill in the blanks. For everyone else the enjoyment comes from looking at the pics, especially when they are so well organised and presented.

In answer to your questions, Pilar:

Yes, Charles was at the "Last Emperor" premiere. I have a black-and-white photo of Ch. and D. together there, but I can't find it!

And as far as I know, Diana did not attend a premiere of the original "Crocodile Dundee."
