A homage to the late Princess Diana and a collection made almost entirely of sustainable clothing were among the breathtaking shows that lit up the second full day of New York Fashion Week Sunday. American designer Tory Burch, a paragon of Bohemian chic style, wowed a star-studded audience with soft floral prints and baggy, puffed-out sleeves that had a distinct 1980s feel. The 53-year-old, who presides over a clothing empire worth more than $1 billion in annual sales, said the Spring 2020 collection had been inspired by Princess Diana's personality rather than her wardrobe per se. "I have always admired her and I wanted to tread very carefully because clearly, she's a style icon and I didn't want to reference that. But I felt she had a fearlessness and being a humanitarian that she was very inspiring," Burch told AFP. Princess Diana, known as Lady Diana Spencer before she married into Britain's royal family, died in a car crash in Paris in 1997. Her troubled marriage to Prince Charles … [Read more...] about Princess Diana, sustainability inspire New York Fashion Week

Princess Diana and the Queen's relationship was tested on many occasions in the years they knew each other. But one particular incident that is said to have raised eyebrows involved Diana and Her Majesty, 93, during one Christmas lunch at Sandringham. Diana, who died aged 36 in 1997, reportedly asked a 'brutal question' which left the rest of the Royal Family - including Prince Charles - 'looking at her as if she were mad.' It was while around the dinner table, Diana reportedly broached the subject of the Royal Family and a federal Europe. According to royal biographer Andrew Morton, he claims Diana asked whether the royals would be relevant. Writing in his book Diana: Her True Story, Mr Morton wrote: “The Queen, Prince Charles and the rest of the royal family looked at her as if she were mad and continued with their debate on who shot the last pheasant of the day, a discussion which occupied the rest of the evening. “As a friend says: ‘She finds the monarchy … [Read more...] about Princess Diana asked the Queen ‘brutal question’

Engaged for only a month, he briefly touched her arm, chastely kissing her on both cheeks (ooh ahh, stop it you two!) and then cheerfully boarded his plane in a natty suit. Back on the tarmac, Diana was tearing up.
