A ruff-collared, pale pink blouse that Princess Diana wore in her official engagement portrait will go up for auction next month.
The blouse is expected to fetch up to $100,000 at the auction.
The blouse was designed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel, the couple who designed Diana’s wedding dress.
Diana chose the blouse for a portrait that was taken by Lord Snowdon, the husband of Princess Margaret.
The fabric of the blouse was salvaged from a dress that had been damaged when a client left a mascara stain on the skirt while trying it on, Elizabeth Emanuel wrote in her book “A Dress for Diana,” CNN reported.
The blouse is being auctioned by Julien’s Auctions, a Beverly Hills auction house that is conducting the sale.
Another of clothing item that belonged to Diana – an evening dress she wore in public twice – is expected to sell for up to $200,000 at the same auction.
