Fairytale princess – One of Princess Diana's most fantasy-like dresses will be auctioned on Tuesday. It was created by the same designers behind her wedding dress, David and Elizabeth Emanuel, and Princess Diana wore it on several occasions.
Bejeweled bodice – The dress is a dream-like creation made of shimmering white organza, with gold sequins, crystals and pearl beads embedded throughout.
Divine details – The entire ensemble includes a petticoat, removable sleeve panels and a matching head band, but Princess Diana often wore it with just a tiara. The design was inspired by Diaghilev's Ballets Russes.
Fashion icon – Diana was known for her glamorous style, and this is not the first time one of her dresses had been auctioned. In March of this year ten ballgowns that once belonged to her went under the hammer in New York for over $1 million
Princess of hearts – She had also auctioned her clothes during her lifetime in support of AIDS and cancer charities. Here she is pictured with her son Prince Harry during the commemorations of VJ Day.
Big-screen style – Before Princess Diana, former Hollywood actress Grace Kelly was hailed as one of the most beautiful and stylish royals in the world. She married Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956, and her magnetic allure brought a hefty dose of glamor to the tiny Mediterranean kingdom.
Elegance in the genes – Her granddaughter, Princess Charlotte, inherited her sense of elegance, and has been a muse for the house of Gucci in the past few years, starring in several advertising campaigns.
Royal refinement – Letizia, Princess of Asturias, a former TV journalist, is known for her demure and chic style. Here she is pictured with Israeli President Shimon Peres during a visit to the country in 2011.
Scandinavian sophistication – Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden flies the flag for Scandinavian style, often wearing romantic dresses in shimmering pastel hues. Here she is with her daughter Princess Estelle of Sweden, and husband Prince Daniel at the wedding of her sister Princess Madeleine in Stockholm.
Chic in the Far East – Crown Princess Masako of Japan doesn't appear in public frequently, but when she does she always cuts an elegant figure. Here she is with her husband Crown Prince Naruhito.
Middle Eastern allure – Queen Rania of Jordan is considered one of the most fashionable royals in the world. She often wears one-of-a-kind designs by the world's most exclusive couturiers, and was included in the Vanity Fair list of top 10 best-dressed first ladies. Here she is pictured with the former mayor of Rome Gianni Alemanno and her husband King Abdullah II.
Jewel in the desert – Princess Ameerah of Saudi Arabia is hailed for her timeless elegance and, apart from designer dresses, she has a jaw-dropping collection of jewels.
Best of British – Princess Margaret was known as a great beauty of her time, and a London "it" girl in the 1950s. She had greater freedom to follow fashion than her sister Queen Elizabeth II, who needed to dress for diplomacy and champion British designers. Here she is pictured on her 26th birthday.
