Princess Diana wore the evening gown now known as “The Elvis gown” for The British Fashion Awards on 17th October 1989. Its creator, Catherine Walker was up for an award but unfortunately didn’t win. It was held at the Famed Royal Albert Hall . Diana wore her hair in a tight french twist on that evening.
The white silk-crepe sheath dress and matching high-collared jacket embroidered all over with simulated pearls and white sequins, dubbed the “Elvis” dress by Diana was one of the hits of the gowns auction. Purchased by Franklin Mint, it sold for $151,000.
