Diana, Princess of Wales was the world's most photographed woman during the 1980s and 90s. Her every outfit was scrutinized, criticized, admired and endlessly copied, her every fashion choice proved enormously influential. But it was only towards the end of her life that she found her own true style and the panache and confidence to flaunt it. The shy, aristocratic nanny made some notorious early fashion faux pas. But with expert guidance from "Vogue "and using her own sure instincts, she developed into a demure style icon who understood the subtle power of dress. Gathering together a stable of trusted designers and photographers--Catherine Walker, Gianni Versace, Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik and Mario Testino--Diana learned to use her appearance to communicate with the public, and she succeeded in winning them over utterly.Eminent fashion authority Colin McDowell has written an engaging and sometimes moving celebration of Diana's fashion journey, drawing on exclusive interviews with her designers, advisers and confidantes. Exquisitely designed and lavishly illustrated throughout with rare and striking images, "Diana Style" is an intimate, evocative portrait of one of the most admired women of our times.

Reviews

"She was a symbol of what one meant when one spoke of icons. She was a mentor to women and she set standards." --Donna Karan "She was shaping up to be a world figure in fashion before her death. She had the power of celebrity without trying." --Bruce Oldfield "She could give any supermodel or actress a run for her money." --Jacques Azagury "She understood innately the power of the language of clothes." --Jasper Conran
