Ten of Princess Diana’s glamorous gowns are up for auction. The princess’s gowns will be auctioned on March 19 in London. Auctioneer Kerry Taylor, who is coordinating the sale says, “People just love talking about Diana and everything she did. Each of these gowns tells a small chapter in the story of her life.”
Of the ten dresses, a burgundy velvet Catherine Walker gown, which the Princess wore to the London premiere of “Back to the Future,” is up for auction. Also, up for sale is the famous “John Travolta” number, which Diana wore when she danced with the “Grease” star at the White House back in 1985.
The ten dresses were originally auctioned off for charity back in 1997, months before the Princess’s death. In that original auction, all the dresses were snapped up by Florida socialite Maureen Dunkel. However, this time, the proceeds will not be going to charity, but instead to pay off Dunkel’s debt, who declared bankruptcy in 2010. The dresses are expected to fetch a $2.5 million price tag.
