While every one is paying the attention on the soon-giving birth, Princess of Cambridge, and we are all waiting to congratulate the royal family. There is always one that we will be reminding of from this British Royal Family, The Princess of Wales, Diana. Both princess are the iconic fashionable princess from now and then, and in 1995, there was a bag from Dior being named after Princess Diana - Miss Lady Dior.
As the story goes, France was getting ready to welcome the Prince and Princess of Wales to visit the Paul Cezanne exhibition at the Grand Palais, in Paris. Then-First Lady Bernadette Chirac, seeking a special gift for the famously elegant Lady Diana, sought the help of Dior for something truly unique. The First Lady spotted the bag while visiting the ateliers and instantly selected it; although it was then only a prototype, the house made an exclusive edition for Lady Diana within 24 hours. After that, the Princess was rarely seen without one of her signature Dior bags in tow. Dior sought her permission to name the bag in her honor, and the Lady Dior has been gracing the most discerning elbows ever since.
