Iconic Princess Diana dress fetches £192,000 at auction

Wednesday June 9, 2010

When Princess Diana made her debut with Prince Charles at an official function aged 19, she made a dramatic first impression in a stunning black taffeta Emanuel gown.

And now the iconic dress is under new ownership, after a bidding war for it at a charity auction.

The beautiful gown, which was expected to sell for £50,000, was bought for nearly four times its estimated price tag, at £192,000.

The item was bought by fashion museum, Fundacion Museo De La Moda, in Chile.
