Princess Diana’s famous revenge dress is still making headlines today even though it’s been over two decades since the Princess of Wales last wore it.

While speaking with Express, Aleksandra Olenska, the founder of the Style Whisperer Blog, said that the revenge dress was more than just a beautiful piece of clothing that accentuated the late royal’s slender figure.

The dress was also more than just a piece of clothing that Princess Diana wore shortly after Prince Charles admitted to being unfaithful to her. The dress served as the mom of two’s way to express herself and wearing it also made her feel empowered.

“Princess Diana’s style and influencer status weren’t just about her well-chosen wardrobe or designer friends. Style isn’t just what you wear, it’s an expression of your soul, your attitude, your values… Diana evolved her style in the media spotlight, as the world watched her transformation - breaking royal protocols in her work as much as in her dress,” she said.

Shortly after joining the royal family, Princess Diana realized how important it was for her to use her fashion to carry out certain statements or thoughts that she couldn’t verbalize. With the help of her advisers, Princess Diana’s fashion immediately became relatable and aspirational.

From the earliest vulnerable pictures, with her unintentionally transparent backlit skirt, to the confidence of the daring Galliano for Dior slip dress or the so-called ‘revenge dress.’ Like all of us, Diana was at once a masterpiece and a work in progress… She came to understand and harness the significance of a royal style statement, as much as the emotional power of clothes,” Olenska explained.

This is why until today, royal fans still cannot forget Princess Diana’s most famous styles and fashion, especially her revenge dress. But interesting information about the revenge dress is that Princess Diana wasn’t supposed to wear it to the Vanity Fair party. She had a change of heart at the last minute.
