More than 25 years after the tragic death of Princess Diana, her black sheep sweater sold at a Sotheby’s auction for about $1.143 million.
After Diana wore the wool sweater at one of King III Charles’ polo matches in 1981, the fashion line Warm & Wonderful saw a great ripple in sales, designers Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne said in a statement.
After damaging the original sweater, the princess asked the designers for a replacement and they happily sent her a new one, which she wore to another polo match in 1983.
Princess Diana wore the wool sweater multiple times, and of course, Paparazzi caught it on camera.
The black sheep sweater and an evening gown Diana wore in 1985 were a part of Sotheby’s “Fashion Icons” auction, which also featured a dress worn by Michelle Obama, a headpiece worn by Sarah Jessica Parker, and a veil worn by Madonna.
Diana was a fashion icon, and she was known as the people’s princess since she always disagreed with the Royal house.
