Valentino is credited with designing one of Princess Diana’s favourite dresses – a burgundy velvet dress with scallop detail on the bodice and embroidered skirt – at the height of her popularity as a fashion icon in 1992. The Princess wore the cocktail dress to several events throughout the early Nineties, including to Her Majesty’s Theatre, the Barbican and a Paul McCartney concert.

I have recently revisited this site from many years ago. I have some changes I would like to make to my old (ancient?) post about this outfit she wore.

I cannot express how much I adore this outfit and how very feminine and stunningly attractive she always was. She has a subtle glamorous charm in this picture which truly melts my heart.

I love the rich, yet light sky blue tone to her dress. I think it really brings out the colour of her eyes too. I like the halter-neck style dress which still shows of plenty of skin yet accentuates all the right curves. I think she is a true angel as she reveals her cleavage in style and yes I think she has the body and grace to pull it off in the most flattering way.

I like the fact that this is an above the knee length summery dress that really shows off her amazing legs. I truly adore the simple classy bare legged look in a pretty dress paired with some gorgeous high heels! I love her beautiful satin blue matching heels. I like the fact that they are not fully closed but have a fine feminine sling-back strap which makes her look a little more summery and pretty. The heel height is just right. High enough to elongate her legs and increase her stature but not overly daring and attention grabbing.

This is surely my favourite outfit she ever wore and she really carried it off with true style and grace. The ultimate expression of a women and her feminine beauty that will always captivate my heart.

When I see pictures like this one I remember again what a true beautiful and elegant women the princess was. She was born to be a princess.

Bruce Oldfield: 'I gave Diana her glamour and Camilla her confidence' | Mail Online
Isn't the pink and white dress Diana is wearing in this article by Catherine Walker, not Bruce Oldfield?
