Kensington Palace are putting on a major new exhibition about Princess Diana's dresses, called Her Fashion Story.

The exhibition will explore the evolution of Diana's style, starting with the the rather demure outfits she wore at first public appearances, to the glamorous and confident dresses she wore later in life.

Amongst the many famous dresses on display is the iconic blue velvet gown that she wore at the White House whilst dancing with John Travolta. There's also the blue tartan Emanuel suit that she wore in Venice, and the pink Bellville Sassoon suit she wore when boarding her honeymoon train.

Craig has never been to this exhibition (be fair... he's a bloke), but he has been to Kensington Palace a few times and written a review on his blog. You might like to read that before you go to get an idea about what else you can see. And if you're a really big fan of Princess Di then you might like to visit the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain in Kensington Gardens as well.

 

Talk about this event

Craig’s review of Kensington Palace – “How many tourists put Kensington Palace on their 'must-do' list because of Princess Diana? If that's your only reason for going then trust me: don't bother. It's not much of a palace. It looks more like a Stately home to me -- the kind of country home you might visit on a Sunday afternoon to have a cup of tea. You can always rate a palace by the fame of the names who… continued”
