Pink Ribbons Crusade to show 19 dresses of Princess Diana
Oct '13
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month the Queen Mary's premier attraction Diana: Legacy of A Princess, curated by the Pink Ribbons Crusade, will be expanded. Beginning October 11, the revitalized exhibit will present nineteen garments worn by Princess Diana. For a limited time, fashion that captured the world's attention will again be on public display.

The elaborate Diana gallery chronicles the House of Windsor's public and private lives, from personal artifacts and family heirlooms to newspaper articles, photographs and more. Princess Diana changed the face of British royalty forever and appropriately takes center stage in this inspired collection. The expanded showcase is a panorama of fashion worn by Diana from 1980 to 1995 – an ode to the woman whose charitable spirit, grace and compassion endeared and inspired.??

The limited time exhibit will feature:

-The formal pink and cream satin diner dress that graced the cover of People Magazine on October 31, 1988 and chosen for the official portrait with Prince Charles.
-The long, yellow and royal blue silk Catherine Walker gown worn to the premiere of Far and Away in 1992.
-The Catherine Walker off-the-shoulder green and cream silk creation that lit up the London premiere of Accidental Hero in 1993.  
-The short Versace black dress worn to the 1995 Apollo 13 Premiere - representative of the new look Princess Diana embraced during her final years and others.

"The presentation of mementos from a life lived on the global stage by the woman of her times is both historically significant and befitting of the Queen Mary and its legacy as a maritime and cultural icon." said Steve Sheldon, Queen Mary, Director of Special Events.??

In further acknowledgement of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Queen Mary and Pink Ribbons Crusade will host Runway Alive in Pink, a Charity Fashion Show - October 12 – to benefit Breast Cancer Angels of Southern California. Modeling clothes by well-known fashion houses and vintage pieces from Princess Diana's favorite designers will be Crystal Lee - Miss California 2013, Leah Cecil - Miss California 2012, fellow titleholders, and local breast cancer survivors.
