The Met Gala is a trendy event that usually has the most well-known celebrities in attendance. Even monarchs have been known to attend the event.


Pop Sugar has reported that in 1996, Princess Diana attended the Gala for her first and only time. There she wore a dress that bordered on the risqué side of things.

The Met Gala is a social event that takes place every year on the first Monday of May. It showcases the best of the best in elite fashion.

Anyone who matters has walked the red carpet outside of 1000 5th Avenue in NYC. The late Princess Diana was one such person.


Diana wore a navy slip dress with black lace trim from John Galliano's first Couture collection for Dior. The gown was complemented with a matching silk duster and mini Dior handbag.

To enhance her looks the Princess wore her iconic pearl and sapphire choker.

The necklace was originally a diamond and sapphire brooch that Queen Elizabeth had given to Diana on her wedding day. Diana later converted the piece into a choker by adding a seven-strand pearl necklace.


At the Gala, the Princess also wore earrings that complemented the choker.


Since her son, Prince Harry is getting married to Meghan Markle, it’s been speculated what the bride-to-be will wear on her big day. Markle has been likened to the second coming of Princess Diana and their tastes are estimated to be similar.

It’s suspected that like her fiancé’s mother, Markle will straddle the line between elegant and sexy. Fashion designer, Vera Wang, agreed and shared her thoughts.

In a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar, she predicted that Markle will go "Neither full-blown royal wedding like Diana or Kate, and neither narrow, sensual and more sexy — I think she’ll go somewhere in-between that feels a tad more modern."
