    She collaborated on her wedding gown with little-known design team David and Elizabeth Emanuel. "In the end, the design process was quite simple because it was just the three of us," the duo wrote in "A Dress for Diana." They had the future princess slip sample dresses on over her jeans: "She was terribly excited to be trying on huge bouffant petticoats, satin skirts and boned bodices." The final garment was made of British-woven silk and featured a dramatic 25-foot train.

    The princess was nicknamed "Dynasty Di" by the tabloids because of her wide-shouldered gowns, like this silver Bruce Oldfield. "She was very involved," Oldfield has said of his client's wardrobe, but"you'd have to be fast because she didn't have much patience."

    Designer Victor Edelstein has said that the dresses he made for the princess were a collaboration: "You each make suggestions and ask, 'What do you think?' " In the case of this white gown and bolero, the partnership paid off. Years after she wore it to a New York event, she chose a photo of herself in the ensemble for the cover of her Christie's auction catalog.

    For an appearance in Melbourne, Australia, Diana accented a single-shoulder gown with an emerald-and-diamond choker worn as a tiara. The necklace was a wedding gift from the queen, who likely imagined the deco treasure being worn in a more conventional way.

    It was the LBD worth a thousand words. In 1994, just as a documentary regarding her husband's infidelities was airing, a lithe and leggy Princess Diana strolled into a Serpentine Gallery benefit wearing a figure-hugging ruched minidress from Greek designer Christina Stambolian. The next day, every front page was devoted not to the Prince of Wales's televised confession, but to images of the glowing, confident 32-year-old Diana. Ever mindful of the power of fashion, three years later she auctioned off 79 of her favorite gowns at a Christie's auction that raised $6 million for AIDS and breast cancer charities.
