I know, I know! I looooved the red outfit. Now I still like the colors, but it seems like a getup or a costume now, instead of an outfit.

Sadly the same can be said for a lot of my other favorites on this page and from the early years in general. I thought they were just beautiful then, but they have not withstood the test of time. Also, Diana was so pretty and fresh in those early years, the later vampish clothing and look seems so hard-edged to me.

Ascot, June 15, 1982. This was just six days before Diana gave birth to William.

I believe the peachy coloured outfit is June 17th and the red one is June 18th.:)

Thanks for the dates, Squidgy.

In 1983, Diana did not attend Ascot because she and Charles were in Canada that week.

In 1984, she was pregnant again.

Ascot, 1985.
On June 18, Diana wore the elegant black-and-white suit she had worn previously in Rome, but with a different hat. I like this broad-brimmed one much better than the "fez" she wore before.

June 20, 1985.
Diana wore the same 2-piece salmon outfit she wore the year before when she was pregnant. In the photo where she has the funny expression on her face, the caption says that a woman is bumping into her. The other photo shows her with Prince Andrew.

Even yet, Fergie's wearing Diana's suit. :)

For me, Diana was at her peak during the Catherine Walker era. When she first got engaged to Prince Charles she seemed fashion-wise to be pretty backward and not chic at all. When she started being dressed by Bruce Oldfield and Walker, that's when she really started to be glamourous and stylish. A lot of her Ascot dresses seemed "Sunday-Schoolish" to me which I guess for royals iss pretty much par for the course.

I actually liked the salmon outfit when Diana wore it in 1984 when pregnant. She looked lovely at Ascot that year.

Another Ascot favourite of mine was from 1987 it was yellow with a blue floral pattern and matching blue hat. It sounds hideous when I am describing it but looked nice.

ChristosGirl: I thought that yellow dress very cool! I'm sure we'll see pictures it soon. And I preferred the salmon silk as a maternity dress. It looked both elegant and comfortable, and in such a flattering color.

I really liked that one, too. I was always sorry she was never seen wearing it more often.

Another fave of mine was the pale yellow hat with the pale pink and pale yellow roses inside the wide brim that she wore to Ascot with a yellow and pink suit in the late 1980's. That was very pretty.

And yet another was a pale cream suit with a floral design and a pointed peplum that she also wore in the late 1980's-had a matching hat with a broad brim and a ribbon with a bow around the crown. After the races that day, there was a picture of her sitting on the hood of Charles' Aston Martin in that suit. She later wore another off white suit with that same hat, but I liked the floral patterned suit better.

Nice pictures. I like Diana's matching purse & shoes. Did we see them again?? I can't remember.

Also, I believe that the man in the top picture is her friend (& in 1994, her rumoured lover) Oliver Hoare.

My ultimate favourite Ascot outfit hands down, the white linen dress with the silk dove grey tailcoat with pearlized buttons and widebrimmed hat worn in 1988. The outfit was also worn to her brother's wedding.

I have to admit that when it comes to a choice between Sarah's navy suit and Diana's navy stripes, I'll take Sarah's suit any day!!! I think Diana's outfit looks messy. Sarah's suit is simple but looks classy.

I love that red and purple suit shown at the very end. How elegant!!
