Princess Diana….In Remembrance xx

As this August marked the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death it seems fitting that I post a blog on her beautiful millinery!  Diana was of course known for her fashion, and pushing the boundaries of what was expected of a modern day Princess, and that is shown clearly below.

How can anyone forget this wonderful turban hat?

And I love this military style felt design too, it goes so well with the jacket!

Diana wore a lot of skull caps in the early 80s, but this one really does catch the eye due to the flamboyant bow at the back!

A beautiful matching beret to complete the outfit!

Diana was incredibly fashion conscious & really did make her mark in some of the extravagant things she wore! This hat is amazing & similar styles are still replicated at Royal Ascot! A hat within a hat isn’t something you’d expect to see on the future Queen.

This shallow crowned hat is just sublime. Simple & yet still very unusual!

What a wonderful upturned brim! I’d say this is well into the 90s now. Awesome!

There was definitely a surge of large, boxy crowns in the mid-90s & this hat is a perfect example of that.

This is the late 80s; you can see the skull cap of the 80s as the base…but the sweeping brims that we saw in the 90s is just starting to creep in.

The more you look at these photo’s the more you are reminded of how fabulous her style was!

I mean…a velvet headband! How inspiring!

There are literally hundred’s of photos of Diana, depicting her beautiful style; beyond what anyone would expect of Royalty. But I will end this blog post on this photo; a true icon who will never be replaced.
