The Sexiest Dresses of All Time Princess Diana’s Revenge Dress

Princess Diana’s Revenge Dress

When she first tried on this slinky, black, off-the-shoulder Christina Stambolian design, Princess Diana deemed it “too daring.” But a few years later, in 1994, on the day Prince Charles admitted on television to having an affair, Princess Di changed her mind, and attended a Vanity Fair party at the Serpentine Gallery in the stunning creation that quickly became known as “the revenge dress.” Three years later, it sold for $74,000 at a charity auction. Sweet, indeed.
