Diana's Dresses

I have been an Anglophile since the Royal Wedding. Not Kate and William - the other one. So when Scott and I first visited London together a few years back, he was very patient as I slowly strolled through an exhibit of Diana's dresses at Kensington Palace.

London is calling me again this year, with this new exhibition of Diana's dresses that marks the 20th anniversary of her August 1997 death. However, since we just visited London again last fall, and will be nowhere in the neighborhood of Kensington Palace this summer, I am enjoying scrolling through photos from the exhibition from the Daily Mail, and on the Palace web site.

In middle school, I thought so many of these dresses were quite stylish. I suppose they were at the time, but in hindsight, some of the early ones (like that billowing wedding dress) aren't really my cup of tea. A few - like the shift dress above left or the one below in which she famously danced with John Travolta at the White House - are a little more timeless than some of the other frothy frocks.

You can check out most of the dresses on display here. What are your favorites?
