Speaking to Express.co.uk, Lead Stylist Supervisor at Stitch Fix UK, Rich Simmons shared how Diana’s looks evolved throughout the years she was in the public eye.
He said: “Princess Diana entered the spotlight as a style icon. Whether she was sporting lemon-coloured dungarees on the polo field or on the steps of St Paul’s in her Emanuels wedding dress, her outfits were always something to admire.
“Though she admitted in her 20s that she only owned ‘one long dress, one silk shirt, one smart pair of shoes, and that was it’, and that she rushed out to buy ‘six of everything’ in the run up to the royal wedding, she went on to rule the art of royal dressing.”
Millions became inspired by the Princess’ fashion statements with retailers at the time, replicating some of her most worn outfits.
