Princess Di may not be with us but her memory as a fashion icon remains eternal. On Tuesday morning, 10 of the Princess' most fabulous dresses were auctioned off at Kerry Taylor Auctions in Bermondsey, South-East London. This wasn't the first time Diana's dresses had gone to auction-three months before her death in 1997, her son William had encouraged her to sell dozens of her dresses at a New York charity auction at Christie's but due to high prices, not many sold. This time around, the collection of dresses sold for $1,303,777.08 with the highest bid going toward that navy blue Victor Edelstein dress Princess Di danced in with John Travolta.
