Surprisingly interesting read. Diana's development from pretty but very young and inexperienced girl suddenly in the limelight to what she was towards the end of her (too short) life is quite impressive. Great pictures.

Right from being young, when people said Princess Diana the first thing to pop into my head was her beautiful dresses.

I really can not remember how could I have this beautiful coffee table book. Bought it of course not, possibly a gift from somebody who likes me so much.

What made me lost my breath was not only those breathtaking photos, but also the stories behind. How Princess Diana used her clothes to say something to the world. From Shy Di to be Superstar Di. (Ironic when we remember how her story came to its end)

A very lovely book. Gave me more understanding about the real meaning of fashion.
