Princess Diana’s Gown Auctioned Off For…

One of Princess Diana‘s most iconic dresses sold today at an auction house in South London for £85,000 ($140,000). After the premium, the buyer will end up paying £102,000.

The buyer is an overseas museum, although further details have not been released.

Kerry Taylor, who is a specialist fashion auctioneer and the mastermind behind the  “Passion for Fashion” auction, told ABC News that the iconic dress is “going to be loved and looked after.”

The dress is Princess Diana’s Emanuel ball gown from the 1986 ‘Diaghilev’ collection. The ball gown was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel from their Diaghilev collection, the same designers that made her wedding dress, and is accompanied by matching headband, optional sleeve panels and a petticoat.

Princess Diana made a few public apperances in the dress including the 1987 premiere of the James Bond film ‘The Living Daylights,’ in Central London.

    I love the skirt. But they were paying for the history, not the dress.
