Princess Diana became famous for her iconic sense of fashion, especially her sweaters, and was once tagged the most photographed woman in the world. But the late royal wore grandma knits like no one else.


"The Crown" season four has seen a widely renewed interest in Princess Diana. From her iconic moments to her remarkable fashion sense, the late Diana has found her way back into the spotlight.

Amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, a new Princess Diana fashion appreciation has arisen, especially for the late royal's loud-and-proud casual sweaters.

At one point, referred to as the most photographed woman in the world, the late royal knew exactly what she wanted when it came to fashion and pulled off haute couture and grandma knits with similar ease.

Diana would often step out in a jumper adorned with a smattering of sheep. Her iconic style has become part of the collection of some popular brands. She loved her grandma-style Fair Isle sweater, which she wore during a photoshoot.


Diana's 1980s sweater looks have quickly become common fashion again, including a hot-pink pullover, which she wore while posing alongside a young William and Harry.

Princess Diana was often captured walking out of her apartment in a V-neck sweater, a look which Emma Corrin tried to recreate in season four of "The Crown."

Princess Diana's penchant for chunky, campy knits and pullovers stuck with her throughout her life and has served as an inspiration for modern fashion style.

Some of her iconic wears have found their way back to the market decades after she donned them. According to reports, Princess Diana's "black sheep" sweater is back on sale four decades after making them famous.

Although new names like Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Rihanna, and other celebrities are running the fashion scene, no one did denim better than Princess Diana.


When she was alive, Princess Diana dictated the fashion world with her iconic wears. Her everyday wear became people's obsession, and her winter outfits became hugely popular among her fans.

"The Crown" has once again given people a glimpse of Princess Diana's iconic wardrobe. Although many agree that the late Princess was a fashion icon, some naysayers argue that a few outfits did not stand the test of time.
