UK: Princess Diana's dress from White House goes to auction

United Kingdom, London
December 03, 2019 at 13:23 GMT +00:00 · Published

The Victor Edelstein dress Princess Diana wore when dancing with actor John Travolta at a White House State dinner in 1985 is up for auction at Kerry Taylor Auctions, in London. Footage from Tuesday reveals the iconic gown, as well as two other dresses that also belonged to the late Princess of Wales.

Although worn several times by Princess Diana, the midnight-blue velvet dress' most memorable moment was at the dinner hosted by then-US President Ronald Reagan, when Diana twirled on the dance floor to 'Saturday Night Fever' with John Travolta.

The gown is estimated at £250.000-350.000 ($323.000-452.000; €293.250-410.550) and will be sold, alongside her two other dresses, during the 'Passion for Fashion' auction on December 9.
