Princess Diana's fashion evolution in pictures, from her childhood to her death

The late Princess of Wales, more commonly known as Princess Diana, was a remarkable woman. Her charity work was recognized internationally — as were her poise and style.

Known for her love of fashion, Prince William and Prince Harry’s mother — who tragically died ahead of her time at the age of 36 — wasn’t afraid to make a statement in bold prints, big sleeves, and bright colors.

Throughout the two decades she was in the spotlight, Diana donned a wonderful array of designs and pushed the boundaries in strapless, short dresses and plunging ensembles that today’s royals, such as the Duchess of Cambridge, would never dream of wearing — from that off-the-shoulder LBD by Greek designer Christina Stambolian worn in 1994 to a white Versace minidress worn to a charity concert in Italy a year later.

Her clothing was so coveted, in fact, that it’s been the center point of numerous fashion exhibitions, including one retrospective that’s currently being held at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s London residence, Kensington Palace.

Princess Diana may no longer be with us, but we hazard a guess that her style will reign on — and continue to inspire — for years to come.

Without further ado, we present her most memorable fashion moments.
