Princess Diana wore this embroidered gown, which is lined in ivory satin, on a state visit to India in 1992. (It was on this trip photographers snapped Diana sitting by herself at the Taj Mahal, prompting speculation that she and Prince Charles were poised to divorce). The sleeveless gown is among Diana’s most lavish. Its exotic flora were created with looped and satin-stiched corded silk, pink sequins, crystal beads in amber, green and pink, and gold chain-stiched leaves.
