Princess Diana's Timeless Style Sells for $360,000

Even though I hadn't even been born yet when Princess Diana did an iconic twirl at the White House with John Travolta (yes, that's him in the photo!) I still know how to appreciate timeless style.  And this dress, and Diana herself, were the epitome of that.

In fact, ten of Princess Diana's most iconic looks were held to the same esteem, being auctioned off this week at the London Kerry Taylor house.  The gorgeous off-the-shoulder gown, made in a deep midnight blue velvet by designer Victor Edelstein (swoon) that she wore to the White House sold for $360,000!!! And who bought the dress??  Simply a man who was "looking to cheer his wife!"  

And while that timeless dress will forever be etched in the minds and hearts of all fashion lovers, both young and young-at-heart, she has had so many looks that paved the way to true style, class and elegance, I just had to pay a little homage to Princess Diana and her beautiful life of fashion.  

So enjoy some of our favorite looks that she wore so effortlessly!  Which is your favorite?
