"Fashion icon - part (2): From her early pre Windsor days, to her glamorous makeovers, after her engagement to Prince Charles and again following their separation, Princess Diana was a style icon to women around the world. She had her favorite designers to guide her along the way, among them Bruce Oldfield, Victor Edelstein, Jacques Azagury, and Catherine Walker, but her charm radiated to truly make her fashion royalty ■
1985: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.
