Princess Diana’s wardrobe is coming home. Twenty-six of the late royal’s most memorable looks will be displayed at her former residence, Kensington Palace, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of her death. According to The Telegraph, “Diana: Her Fashion Story” will feature pieces like a blue velvet Victor Edelstein gown she wore to the White House, her Catherine Walker suits, and the pink Emanuel blouse she wore for her engagement portrait. The pieces are being called in from all over the world for the exhibit, which opens in February.

“Diana, Princess of Wales was one of the most photographed women in the world, and every fashion choice she made was closely scrutinized,” Eleri Lynn, the show’s curator, told the paper. “Our exhibition explores the story of a young woman who had to quickly learn the rules of royal and diplomatic dressing, who in the process put the spotlight on the British fashion industry and designers.”
