One-off documentary Princess Diana’s Dresses: The Auction visits the world-famous auction house of Kerry Taylor to shed light on the ten couture dresses that inspired a generation before they were sold at auction.

Using archive footage of the princess, Kerry’s expert insight and interviews from the people who knew Diana viewers will come to understand the importance of each individual dress and why they were so key in the princess’ life story.

The programme revisits the late royal’s most unforgettable looks – from her Elizabeth Emmanuel wedding dress and the off-shoulder velvet gown worn when she famously danced with John Travolta, to the striking halter neck black dress captured in by renowned photographer Mario Testino – her outfit choices were responsible for generating an endless stream of iconic images.
