I think it was one of her favorites as well because she wore it many times.

Does anyone remember or have an image for a military inspired day suit and hat? I think it was Easter, she had a white hat and a baby blue military inspired coat. I think the boys were dressed to match.
I have looked in all my old magazines, I may be mixing up 2 looks.
thanks

I think you're right. The hat was a tall, white felt hat, no brim. I don't know the proper name for the style.

You're welcome, the outfit is really cool and the comparison that MRSJ came up with sounds very striking.

Thank you thank you bethaliz and monic! I was just about to post the white military inspired outfit but couldn't find the blue easter coats. I had combined the two in my mind.
I just loved those baby blue Easter matching coats!

She really could wear hats and took chances. The hats the BRF wear now, with the exception of the Queen, really don't seem like much.

That's pretty uncanny. I never noticed the similarities before.

Thank you very much for this collection of sleek, minimalistic looks from 1996/97 - again, it's quite amazing to see that practically all these styles would be applauded if any of the current Crown Princesses wore them today.
Only the experiment with the headband might be considered unfortunate IMHO.
Among the many Versace shift dresses seen above, one was actually new to me, the pale pink one in this pic:

Diana's fashion in the late 90s especially in 97 was very fashion forward. The outfits are timeless, my favorite pic is of her on Bonds street wearing the pale blue mini dress with Versace shades and pearls.
