Princess Diana's Fashion Moments: On The 15 Year Anniversary Of Her Death We Celebrate The Wardrobe Of A Style Icon

It's hard to believe that it's been 15 years since the death of Princess Diana. The mother of Prince William and Prince Harry would now have been 51 years old and, we imagine, as much of a trendsetter as she was in her 20s and 30s. Certainly the People's Princess was known for a great many things - her charity work, the nurturing instinct she displayed with those in need and of course her very public divorce from Prince Charles - but her influential style was also responsible for capturing a generation.

Compare the shy nursery school teacher accidently exposing her legs to the sexy woman in an LBD at a London premiere, and you'll see Diana's journey from girl to royalty to genuine style icon with a wardrobe of Versace, Chanel and Catherine Walker. Both her off-duty and red carpet appearances inspired trends as the world rushed to copy her signature style. Take a look at some of our favourite Princess Diana looks and see how her relationship with fashion evolved over the years...
