2. Pale Blue Catherine Walker Gown
When we say that Princess Diana ‘recycled’ her outfits, we don’t just mean that she wore them again: she had them made into completely new pieces, staying up to date with fashion and yet using what she already had. Here she is wearing the blue gown for the first time during a visit to Portugal in 1987. On the second image, she is wearing the same dress (believe it or not!) to a charity ball in 1989. She had the dress remade, incorporating a heart-shaped neckline and removing the sleeves.
