Princess Diana’s 14 Iconic Looks That Still Make Her a Fashion Trendsetter

More than 20 years have passed since we lost Princess Diana, but she is still a vanguard of fashion, inspiring designers with her iconic looks but not necessarily full copies of the garments she was wearing. It’s all about Diana’s vibes in little details like polka dot prints, floral motifs, voluminous sleeves, or gloves of different colors that designers use to “season” their fashion dishes and add taste to the clothes they create.

We love Princess Diana’s style here at Bright Side, and we picked 14 of her iconic looks that modern fashion designers used as inspiration for their masterpieces.
