The black dress designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel for Princess Diana's first public engagement with the Prince of Wales was sold for a staggering £192,000 at auction yesterday.
The taffeta gown raised eyebrows when Lady Diana, then newly enagaged to the Prince, wore the outfit with its plunging neckline.
It helped establish her as the most glamorous member of the British Royal Family, and marked the beginning of the media frenzy that would always surround her.
The dress was purchased by Fundacion Museo de la Moda, a fashion museum in Santiago, Chile.
