Princess Diana’s blue velvet gown is on sale!
The Princess wore a midnight blue velvet gown when she danced with actor John Travolta at the White House has been put up for sale, an auction house said on Monday.
The dress was made by a former couturier Victor Edelstein, best known for his fashion designs for Diana, Princess of Wales.
Wearing the dress, Princess Diana and her then-husband Prince Charles attended a state dinner hosted by then-president Ronald Reagan on November 9, 1985.
Diana was also photographed wearing the gown dancing with Travolta to the song You Should Be Dancing from his film Saturday Night Fever.
Estimated at £250,000-£350,000 ($324,000-$454,000), the dress is one of three being sold by Kerry Taylor Auctions on December 9.
They also include a long-sleeved dress from 1986 by Katherine Cusack, also in midnight-blue velvet, and a Catherine Walker navy wool day dress from around 1989.
The Edelstein dress was part of a collection of outfits that Diana herself sold for charity at auction in June 1997, weeks before she died in a car crash in Paris on 31 Aug 1997.
