In March of 1987.
Editor’s note: Last week we did a special spotlight on James Galanos to mark his passing. I liked the idea of having this “themed” week in addition to our regular content that I thought I would try it again with Princess Diana. While the late Princess is never far from our hearts, she is especially in our thoughts lately with the advent of the soon to be launched exhibit "Diana: Her Fashion Story" at Kensington Palace. Again we have gathered some of the best of the stories around the web this week in celebration of this coming exhibit and will share them with you all this week. Enjoy! xx Cherie
Next February, Kensington Palace will unveil “Diana: Her Fashion Story,” an expansive exhibition of Princess Diana’s legendary style. Yet the royal’s iconic beauty look deserves its own retrospective, as her unchanging hair and makeup provided a strong anchor across the decades. A chic chin-grazing coif lent modern elegance to silk ball gowns and ruffled bow blouses, a look made particularly fresh when contrasted with a glittering tiara, while simple makeup—clean skin with the barest hint of blush and a soft nude lip—kept her perennial poise at the forefront. Here, five times Princess Diana made the case for a beauty trademark with a flawless look that endures to this day.
