Many fashion pieces have gone down in history. This is the case of Lady Diana’s iconic blue dress worn at the premiere of the film “The Whales of August” by Lindsay Anderson. For her first climb of the steps, the Princess of Wales appeared alongside Prince Charles, wearing a magnificent strapless dress by Catherine Walker. With the collaboration of her friend and stylist, the young woman had opted for a made-to-measure piece consisting of a strapless dress in sky blue silk muslin with a matching stole.
Many rumors say that Lady Diana had arrived adorned with a creation that would have been inspired by the outfit worn by Grace Kelly in the Alfred Hitchcock film, “The hand at the collar”. For the touch of originality, the fascinating princess then 25 years old was equipped with a bouquet of colorful flowers which allowed her, as usual, to completely eclipse the rest of the assembly.
