Other The Blue Swan Lake Dress
Blue looked lovely on the Princess and it was short and showed Diana's long legs.

My personal favorite was the short black dress with the trailing sash she wore the night Charles went on TV as part of the Dimbleby book. People magazine called it her 'Screw you, Charles dress'. Her legs went on for days.

That dress showed the world what Charles left Diana for. I wonder how much that dress is worth now?

My personal favorite was always is called here "the Elvis Dress" She looked so regal and really like a queen rather than a princess.

A close second for me would be the pale blue chiffon dress. Its so pretty and elegant. Diana looked so stunning in it, just like you would picture a Princess in a story book.

i love the blue chiffon, its timelessly elegant and a beautiful color on her. anyone could put it on today and look beautiful, some of the others look very dated "80" bigger is better looks. one of my favorites isn't here, the green silk she wore in Australia with her necklace as a tiara. i couldn't find a photo to link.

It's hard to say--she looked lovely in so many of her gowns. I really liked her earlier looks a lot--
I loved this green gown for her formal engagement photos with the diamond jewellery lent by Collingwood Jewelers--

I also like this gown, http://www.royal.gov.uk/files/images...lbox_diana.gif

Maybe I like the earlier gowns because that's when she just looked like she was in love. I don't care any of her one armed gowns.

Every evening gown that Diana wore was stunning but this one was my absolute favorite. She looked amazing, she was confident, happy and out there and (I would kill for those legs.)

She looked stunning in all. Some I like better than others, but they are all beautiful. The burgundy gown is lovely, as is the "Elvis" creation. The gold lame is just eyecatching. I least like that red and black print. Just my opinion.

So many pretty ones to choose from. It was hard to choose just one. One of my favorites from way back when though won out. I had the opportunity to see the Dresses for Humanity Tour years ago and see many of the dresses from the auction up close. One of them--I think it was the burgundy velvet one? had a tiny hand print on the dress. You can just imagine maybe Harry came up to her and left the mark on the dress all those years ago?

Incidently, Dress B ( the Travolta dress) is not black. It is a very dark navy almost midnight blue.
