This picture is the perfect example of how stylish Princess Di was and how true she was to herself regardless of what people thought. In this photo, she is seen leaving her health club after a morning workout. Now, we are sure she wasn’t expecting a strong wind to accompany her down the road, blow her coat up and reveal her workout clothes (and her gorgeous legs).
Princess Di was beloved for many things, mainly being the “People’s Princess,” but also for being a fashion icon. So, it’s only fitting that she would just carry on walking and pretend nothing has happened, (and also forget that her private secretary resigned one day before this photo was taken).
Upon initial observation, it may appear that Kate effortlessly carries off the vibrant purple button-down, and indeed she does, albeit with a slight twist from the original design intent. Later on, to the surprise of both Kate and the rest of us, it came to light that the buttons were actually meant to be positioned at the back, with the bow adorning the front. This unexpected revelation emphasizes that even the fashion-forward Duchess can experience wardrobe mishaps.
However, regardless of the mix-up, Kate flawlessly rocked the ensemble until she discovered the proper way to wear it and made the necessary adjustment. Remarkably, the reversed arrangement with the bow in front still exuded a charming and stylish aura, proving that Kate's inherent grace and charisma can make any outfit shine, regardless of minor design nuances.
Princess Diana's timeless fashion choices captured the attention of magazines long before Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton entered the world. Among those iconic images is her wedding gown, an emblem of extravagance featuring a lengthy train and puffy shoulders that epitomized the fashion of its time. Additionally, her veil was no less dramatic, rivaling the train in its remarkable length. However, fate had its own plans on her special day, as the wind gusts unexpectedly interfered, causing various parts of the dress to flutter and dance whimsically.
Nonetheless, Princess Diana maintained her resplendent aura, looking breathtakingly stunning despite the dress's playful interaction with the elements. The value of this remarkable gown, estimated at nearly half a million, serves as a testament to the enduring legacy of Princess Diana and her indelible impact on the world of fashion.
Stairway to Heaven
Poor Kate has been on this list more than almost everyone else – and for things that aren’t her fault, like the wind. She’s been caught in a windy situation more than a few times, like here, when she and the rest of the family were getting off a plane in New Zealand in 2014.
She was able to hold it down so that she didn’t show the cameras too much, but you would also think at this point that she would have hired a stylist to figure out how to style her in things that don’t leave her flashing the entire world in a gust of wind.
The Revenge Dress
Princess Diana was renowned for her rebellious nature, often defying royal protocols, including dress codes. This daring ensemble stands as a stark departure from the conservative attire typically associated with the royal family. In 1994, following Prince Charles' admission of infidelity, Princess Diana made a bold public statement by appearing in this eye-catching outfit.
The dress itself, exuding confidence and sensuality, became widely known as "the revenge dress," a moniker that has endured throughout the years. It symbolized her newfound independence and defiance in the face of adversity. Princess Diana's fearless fashion choice became a powerful symbol of her strength and resilience, solidifying her status as an icon who fearlessly carved her own path, while leaving an indelible mark on the world's perception of royalty.
