Who is the style icon you aspire to and why?

Yesterday I went up to London with a friend of mine to Kensington Palace to see Lady Diana’s dresses. We had a fabulous day, the weather was perfect and the exhibition was everything I expected it to be. We rounded off the day with a cream tea at the Grosvenor Hotel before getting back onto the coach home. Diana is one of my style icons. Who is the style icon you aspire to and why?

I have always loved the way Lady Diana dressed. I think that although she had stylists to give her advice on how to dress I also think that she had effortless style herself. She owned the outfits she wore and she know how to put them together. She has been known to say, ” What message will I be giving out if I where this dress” She knew that what she wore was important and how to engage and inspire people through fashion.

My Diana favourites

I loved most of what Diana wore and would like to share some of my favourites. This lovely red dress suit by Catherine Walker is a favourite, which she wore with a black camisole underneath. This was to launch the HIV/AIDS charity appeal in 1996. She loved the short straight skirts and often in bright colours. Which I guess is why I like her style. She could team this suit with some heals and look great.

She loved the fitted shift dress and always knew how to wear it. Take this blue shift dress here, it looked great with heals but i saw a picture of her wearing the dress with nude pumps.

Diana loved to dress up and she loved costume jewellery. She had an elegant evening dress made of black lace which covered a magenta silk underlay which created a rich bronze effect. The princess wore it paired with a long string of fake pearls. She always had lovely good quality hand bags that matched her shoes to complete an outfit.

Casual Dressing

Although she loved to dress up she could also do casual. Wearing a pair of jeans with a plain white shirt would still look fabulous, like she did in the mind fields in Angola. Photographs taken of her with her boys, she always looked very happy and relaxed and happy in her skin. She made a fashion statement whenever she stepped out in front of the camera, it was effortless style for her. She set new trends and many wanted to buy her dresses which sold out in the shops immediately.

I think one of the reasons she is one of my style icons is that she loved to wear colour which is one of my passions. She was never afraid to experiment with different colours together and always made a statement.  She had a timeless fashion. If you look at the clothes I saw at this exhibition, which she wore twenty years ago they could still be worn today. She understood that what you wear conveys a message and tells a story and she used that in her work as a royal.
