A top worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, for her engagement portrait in 1981 is among the items in an auction of famous clothing, The Guardian reported

The pink crepe blouse with ruff-like collar and loose pleats to the front, worn by Diana, was captured by royal photographer Lord Snowdon and is being put up for sale by Julien’s Auctions.

The garment, with an $80,000 to $100,000 (£64,000 to £80,000) estimate, was created by designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel who would go on to design Diana’s wedding gown for her marriage to the then-Prince of Wales the same year.

Meanwhile, the four-day event from Julien’s Auctions and Turner Classic Movies (TCM), called Hollywood Legends, will also sell an evening dress worn by Diana.

Designed by Moroccan-born fashion designer Jacques Azagury for the royal, it was worn in Florence, Italy, in April 1985.
