Well, my choice of picture was finding one that both brought out the best in diana and was most suitable for stenciling (sources lighting etc)

The actual article is one of the worst I've ever read - full of gossips (all the popular ones + a couple of invented ones), incorrect information (one of the many - they list Diana as commoner and Camilla as 'blue-blooded titled aristocrat', and the other states Harry was born in 1983), along with some obviously revolting and stupid things - like physician's claims that Diana's wounds were not lethal, but she 'preferred' to die.

The cover is nice though, this shade of blue really suited Diana.

Yes, I agree with you. She ,as well as her designers, must have noticed that also because Versace made a dress in the same blue (pic) .

You're welcome. I know Russian quite well, it's sort of my second language.
Versace's dress is one of my favourites of Diana, although the one on the magazine's cover suits her better (imo). She looks sweet there.

I meant to say that you could pm me and we could discuss it outside of posting it here.

I really would appreciate your help.

Thanks! Laura

Hi! I will tell you about my most treasured Diana item. It's a catalog from her charity sale that I ordered from Christies as soon as they became available. I paid just $75 for the regular issue ones, and even though it's not one of the most special ones that has the serial number and personal message from her, it's extremely special to me. I have kept it all these years and everytime I look at it it makes me smile. I love to look at the pictures of her wearing the gowns. I also like to play a game I started awhile ago, of sort of tracking the dresses, keeping track of what happens to them, as they continue to crop up on the auctions around the world. One of them, Lot 5, sold recently at a Sotheby's auction in London, for over a million pounds.

My first book about Diana was "Invitation to a Royal Wedding" by Kathryn Spink. My parents gave it to me for Christmas in 1981, it is still my most treasured book.

I have over 300 books about Diana, and they are all special to me. The ones with great monetary value would be the "Dresses" catalog and "Dicing with Di".

How cool Sammy you have a book on the Princess all the way from 1981.

I have newspaper and magazine clippings scrapbooked, right from the announcement of the engagement in 1981. I was 14.

I have a couple of hundred books, including the dresses catalogue which I bought before the actual auction. Christies even sent me a list of the results.

I think the most treasured items I have are the photographs I took of Diana at the Savoy Hotel on her 30th birthday.

My most treasured item is a Princess Diana doll with her wedding gown on. I know I treasure it the most because my son who was 6 at the time went into the toy store with his father to purchase a toy for himself and came out with that doll for me. This was right after she had died when there was so much memorabilia being sold. Of course he was not alive when she married, yet he chose that particular doll, boxed up, for me. Imagine my surprise when they arrived home with "my" present! To this day, I have never opened it and it sits on top of my bookcase which is packed full of many diverse Princess Diana books, magazines, tea cups, etc. My son, in his own small way, was trying to comfort me, I'm very blessed. I think Diana would have liked that.

I have 2 books on Diana (Rosalind Coward's and Sarah Bradford's), it's not much but I love them even if many people the same already. I prefer to buy some books that are not full of gossips, so there's only a few I trust. My precious Diana 'thing', is my picture collection I have on my computer. I've more than 2 thousands of pics and these are really important to me, in particular the rare ones. Not very special but that's my stuff.

It sounds like we got it around the same time. I bought it shortly after her funeral.
I also got the book of collected essays by her friends, family, associates from her charites, etc. the proceeds of which went to the Diana Memorial Fund. It has essays from people Rosa Monckton, Lady Annabel Goldsmith, Tina Brown, Richard Kay, Anthony Holden, Ingrid Seward, Lady Cosima Somerset....
I had another picture book for awhile, photos by Tim Graham that came in October 1997.
These books I don't have anymore. I was cleaning house a few years ago and decided to resell them on Amazon.
