The lady had taste, but it turns out anyone can buy her style. Or could buy her style — a handful of Princess Diana's most gorgeous gowns sold yesterday at a London auction for £800,000 pounds (or about $1.2 million). That's a lot of crushed velvet.
While most of Princess Di's dresses sold to museums and various collectors for about £108,000 ($163,090) each, the iconic Victor Edelstein gown she wore while catching disco fever with John Travolta at the 1985 State Dinner sold for £240,000 ($362,424) to an unidentified man who wanted to "cheer up his wife." And with that, we all broke up with our significant others, because WTF, where are our princess dresses?!
