Shoulderpads, mullet hems and acres of taffeta... Diana's most iconic Eighties fashion moments remembered in new exhibition

A priceless collection of the late Princess Diana's most prized possessions are being put on display for the first time.
Thousands of items, from evening gowns, heirlooms and personal accessories, to photographs, letters and designer sketches, will be showcased in Diana: Legacy of a Princess, in Long Beach, California.
The exhibition, set to open June 16, is on the historic ship The Queen Mary, and also includes a garden bench that was a wedding gift for Prince Charles and the late Princess, as well as cherished pieces from other members of the Royal family too.

White out: The belted Joseph Azagury ensemble that is part of the exhibition on the remodelled Queen Mary was bang on trend when Diana wore it in 1993 
Many of the dresses on display make up some of the late Princess's most iconic style moments, including one long-sleeve, lace and pleated chiffon evening gown worn by the Princess in May, 1993.

Designed by Jacques Azagury, she wore the white dress to a charity gala performance of Mozart's The Magic Flute, in aid of the British Lung Foundation.
Another famous favourite on display is a floral-print strapless silk taffeta dress designed by Catherine Walker.
