A dress, worn by Princess Diana in both Florence, Italy and Vancouver has sold at auction for $1.1 million – more than 11 times its estimated price.
The black, ballerina-length velvet evening dress was sold at Julien’s Auctions in Hollywood and broke a fashion record as the most expensive dress, worn by Diana, ever sold at auction.
The dinner in Florence was part of a royal tour with then-husband Prince Charles in 1985. Diana also wore the dress to a Vancouver Symphony Orchestra performance in 1986.
