I ♥ Your Style: Princess Diana, part 4

Chances are you've all seen these photos many times, as have I. But in the context of looking at Diana's style over her lifetime, they are a very important conclusion. The way I see it, these photos, taken just 5 months before she passed away, were a hint of what we would have seen next in Diana's life: a happier, independent and grown up woman who was finally free from the life that so rigidly defined her. It's as if in the photos from the decade before she was playing a role, and in these pictures she is finally able to just be herself. She never looked more beautiful.

  2. She looks really free of worries here, so relaxed and modern. I remember also seeing photos of Caroline Bessette Kennedy not long before she died also, looking really happy, playing with the dog - two beautiful women and tragic young deaths.

  3. I love this! After her dramatic 80's style it seems like she has developed a clean, confident minimalist 90's look here. (As minimalist as a princess can get of course!) I've loved reliving her style evolution through your past few posts!
