My wife loves this book it is one our favorite people. This is a worthy addition to the Princess Di collections of books.

Great Princess Diana book!

This is a great book for the collector or for a coffee table book - I enjoyed reading about the evolution of her wardrobe. I collect Princess Diana Dolls from Franklin Mint and the clothes they have made for her are the most known and recognized of her wardrobe.... some seamstresses that also make clothes for this doll have to rely on books like this to replicate what she wore -- therefore clothes / wardrobe books like this are always great for that purpose. I enjoy reading about the process for the wardrobe - when, why, where..... she was great at creating clothes for the "job" and kept in mind where she would be going and who she would be visiting. Her style changed so much from the frilly clothes and gowns to the more tailored clothes she wore later... and of course, I still miss seeing her..... most of us who collect Diana memorabilia do.

Good For What It's Good For

This book will not change your life, but if you like to look at pictures of Diana in her lovely clothes looking lovely herself, this is a pretty volume, well designed and pleasant to browse through. The text will not set the standard for the industry, however, so if you are looking for more in depth reviews of her fashions or her biography, you could make a better choice. Bottom Line: It's a lovely treat to spend an afternoon with this book if you're not interested in anything new or innovative. Enjoy it for what it is, an attractive book about an attractive woman.

This is a great book/

Prince Charles has said that he likes to see a lady well dressed; however, I don't think he was ever able to cope with his late ex-wife's beauty, charisma, elegance, poise, and humor. He could not accept the fact that people would rather see his radiant wife who was royal by marriage, but a far cry from the traditional, stuffy royal. I think his envy was one reason for the breakup of their marraige. This book covers every phase of Diana's multifaceted life.Even as a Sloane Ranger, Diana had outstanding tast in the style of clothes she wore and in the accessaries she chose to wear with each outfit. This book contains many beautiful pictures of Diana which have never been seen before.It's difficult to believe this beautiful, young princess is no longer alive because each picture of her radiates such warmth. Diana often recycled many of her dresses by having different little touches added or by having something deleted. Diana possessed the ability to combine the most expensive jewelry with costume jewelry. She, also, liked color and chose to wear colors which no royal before her had done. Diana like to shop and what modern lady doesn't? Again, something royals didn't do.Truly, Diana is "Queen of Style." This book is well written and shows that Diana could wear many varieties of color, dresses, jewelry, etc. with which no one before her dared to experiement. All pictures are in color except for a couple. This book is a must for anyone who collects books on Diana, Princess of Wales.

Interesting and informative with excellent photos.

Both interesting and informative, this book chronicles the late Princess Diana's fashion history from her engagement days through her last year. With details gathered from her favorite designers, photos describing each period show how Diana emerges from her look as a trendy Sloane Ranger to the style icon she became. This book is a 'must' for any collector.
