Wedding dresses of the famous (PHOTOS); Diana Spencer wedding dress 25 ft. train by David and Elizabeth Emanuel. The wedding dress of Princess Diana was worn by Lady Diana Spencer at her wedding to Charles, Prince of Wales on 29 July 1981 at St Paul's Cathedral.
Diana wore an ivory silk taffeta and antique lace gown, with a 25-foot train, valued then at ¬£9000. It would become one of the most famous dresses in the world, and was considered one of the most closely guarded secrets in fashion history.
The dress was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel and was described as a dress that "had to be something that was going to go down in history, but also something that Diana loved", and one which would be "suitably dramatic in order to make an impression."
The dress has toured for many years with the exhibition "Diana: A Celebration", though generally it stays for only part of the exhibit. Althorp House, Northampton is the primary display location of the dress. Go here for larger photos.
