Princess Diana dress exhibition planned

A collection of Britain's Princess Diana's dresses are to be displayed in a spring exhibit next year.

The late royal was celebrated for her wardrobe choices and now London's Kensington Palace is set to reveal a display of the beauty's most iconic gowns.

According to WWD, the exhibit will include a selection of five dresses and will launch at the palace on March 26.

The highlight of the display - entitled Diana - will be a strapless black silk taffeta Emanuel gown. Diana wore the impressive floor-length dress in 1981 at her first official engagement with Britain's Prince Charles.

The four other pieces will include a fuchsia sari-style dress and an ivory silk crepe dinner dress designed by Catherine Walker.

A Bellville Sassoon Lorcan Mullany monochrome cocktail dress and a Versace black shift version will also be displayed.

The collection of gowns is part of the celebrations to mark a $19 million overhaul of Britain's Kensington Palace.

The celebration of Diana's fashion status will be set against a backdrop by interior designers Finola Inger and Julie Verhoeven.
