This revenge dress worn by Diana meant the end of her marriage to Charles

The late Princess of Wales and King Charles III’s first wife, Diana, continue to stir up public opinion 25 years after her tragic death in a car crash in Paris, France. With the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, many old stories and incidents are brought back into focus, and mostly revolve around Diana, perhaps the most beloved royal in the world, ever. This Thursday, we take a look back at Diana’s most talked about ‘revenge dress’ worn to settle scores with her estranged husband, Charles, who confessed to cheating on her.

The off-the-shoulder chiffon dress was originally created by Greek designer Christina Stambolian. It has a classic sweetheart neckline, a flowing black trail. And Diana wore it the very day Charles admitted to having an affair in a television interview.

Stambolian compared Diana’s choice of black to the black swan Odile in Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake ballet, saying that Diana “didn’t choose to act like Odette, innocent in white. She played it as Odile. She’s obviously very angry.” Interestingly, Diana owned the dress for three years before finally wearing it, as she considered it “too bold”. According to reports, Diana had planned to wear a Valentino dress before choosing the Stambolian design. Anna Harvey, Diana’s former stylist, said that Diana “wanted to look a million dollars … and she did”.

Reports suggested that the event in which the dress was worn was a June 29, 1994 fundraising dinner organized by Vanity Fair for the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens and Diana declined the invitation; however, two days before the dinner, after several days of ‘publicizing the revelations of Charles’ infidelity’, she accepted the invitation.

That same night, the interviewer asked Charles if he had been “loyal and honorable” to Diana throughout their marriage. “Yes,” Prince Charles replied. “Until it broke irretrievably, we both tried.” Well, here is his official confession of cheating on Diana. Charles and Diana broke up two years before the show aired.
