Video: Dress Of Revenge: How Princess Diana Retaliated Against Charles For Cheating
Sometimes an image is the easiest and most powerful way to make a statement. Especially when it comes to quarrels and breakups. Admit it, you have repeatedly liked memes like "this is how I dress for a meeting with my ex." However, women practiced this method of revenge long before memes and the Internet in general. One of the most famous examples is Princess Diana. Through her "dress of revenge,
Lady Di already had a Valentino dress prepared for her charity evening in 1994. Long and closed - as required by royal protocol. But that day, everything went awry. First, information about the dress was leaked to the press (how can a style icon be predictable?), And then the princess received one of the biggest blows of her life. Her husband Prince Charles admitted in an interview that he had long been unfaithful to his wife. The discord in the family of Charles and Diana began for a long time, but at that time they continued to officially appear together and in public pretend that nothing terrible had happened. Now everyone knew the truth about his affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles. What was left for Diana to do?
Of course, she could just “lie low” until the scandal subsides. Once again, show generosity and forgiveness, be above this and not give gossipers reasons to gossip about their personal life. Or, on the contrary, to make a kind of official statement about what happened. What did she choose? Of course, the most famous rebel of the royal family did not go the well-trodden paths and did everything in her own way. She decided to appear in public that day - not in vain did she prepare for this. True, having outplayed all the cards and choosing a completely different outfit. Instead of the already approved royally modest dress, she put on the one that had been waiting in the wings for three years in her wardrobe. There was no reason for it - but now it turned out to be very useful.Christina Stambolian's little black dress ran counter to all the rules of royal etiquette. Above the knee, with bare shoulders and tight-fitting - it clearly showed the flawless figure of Lady Diana. And literally shouted: "Look who you lost." The princess's calculation was justified: her photo in the morning appeared in all the world's tabloids. And her outfit went down in history as a "dress of revenge.
