Is this dress who Diana wore for the premiere of Swan Lake in 1997?

Not to mention, the Swan Lake Necklace!!

The other gown I loved her in, I cant remember where she wore it. It was almost exactly the same as Grace Kelly wore in 'To Catch a Thief'. White strapless chiffon whith a kind of Greecan wrap on the bodice. 'The Franklin Mint' is advertising some little statue of her and she's wearing the dress I'm talking about.

If so, Diana's most famous wearing of it was probably July 1987 at the Cannes Film Festival. But she also wore it to a performance of Miss Saigon in September 1989.

This dress is the same as blondie28 wrote as one of their favorite dresses of Diana in Cannes, 1987

She wore it during the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, 1987. I think it's the first time she has worn it and the occasion was perfect because it was like honouring Grace Kelly, the actress. Here's a picture .

The dress that Grace was wearing is even more beautiful in person, here in NY there is a Grace, Princess of Monaco exhibit at Sothebys the jewles and dresses this woman wore are breathtaking.

A great idea of Catherine Walker to create this dress for Diana to use in Cannes.

I have a question, on post #10 someone posted a picture of Diana in a Murray Arbeid gown that appears to be black and with this white something on the front of it. I have pictures where she wore it twice. Does anyone have dates for this dress?

Also there is a Victor Edelstein dress in teal green or blue that she must have worn in 1989 because her hair is upswept and another picture I have of her is a portrait of her in a tiara? Any dates where she has her hair up? Thank you

Was that a one-shoulder gown? I have seen two versions of what you discribed, both on formal occasions with the Spencer tiara and emeral choker. They were all from 1988, one from July and another from October.

Victor Edelstein dress

It has this huge bustle in the back. and has an almost shawl collar but it is off the shoulder. She is wearing her emerald and diamond choker and the emerald and diamond drop earrings, her hair is upswept. Edelstein said he designed the gown for her in the 80's as she asked for a very grand evening dress. Hope that helps a bit.

I have another request, boy you guys are going to get sick of me. Does anyone have a picture of Diana attending the premiere of "Hannah & Her Sisters" on 7-30-86? I suppose this should go under film premieres but it would be great if someone had the picture and could post it.

That was from 25 Nov 1987, it was for an Anglo-Spanish Society event attended by the Infantas of Spain.

I'm in the middle of redoing my scrapbook for the umpteenth time. I have a picture of a burgundy velvet off the shoulder evening gown tha I have seen as being from Brisbane, Australia in 1988 and also the French embassy in 1988. She is wearing a pearl choker w/o the sapphire, different choker I think,. The dress kind of criscrosses (sp) on the front of the dress. Her hair is a little shorter. Can anyone help? Thanks
