Fact №4

Diana introduced an unusual technique into fashion: using a clutch as protection for her neckline. Since the paparazzi followed her everywhere, Diana had to be very careful. When leaving the car, she always covered the neckline with a small clutch so that the cameras could not take pictures of the excess.

Fact №5

Princess Diana once called Cindy Crawford to Kensington Palace for tea, mainly to surprise princes Harry and William, who were fans of the model at the time. "I was so intimidated meeting Princess Diana and being at Kensington Palace and just how completely down-to-earth she was because there's so much protocol I guess, and not being English, I don't understand some of it," Crawford opened up about the first time she met Princess Diana. "I was like, 'What do I wear?' because Diana had a teenage son and I didn't want to be too frumpy, but this was Kensington Palace and I wanted to be invited back," she said.
