Though Kate Middleton has been the apple of every magazine editor’s eye since joining the royal family, we thought it’d be fun to take a step back and explore Princess Diana’s fashion through a new exhibition at the Kensington Palace in London. The exhibition, “Diana: Glimpses of a modern princess,” was carefully curated for two years before opening to the public in late March. What can you expect? A little bit of fashion and a little bit of history. Twenty rooms have been refurnished with historical pieces and contemporary artwork. Visitors can walk around in rooms that have been covered with colorful wallpaper, designed by Julie Verhoeven, featuring Princess Diana in some of her signature looks. Get up close with beautiful gowns worn by Diana including pieces by Versace, David and Elizabeth Emanuel and Catherine Walker. Stay tuned for our photo diary of some of London’s most fashionable spots after our trip in May!
