It's been nearly 20 years since Princess Diana passed away, yet she still continues to be an amazing role model for people. Princess Diana captivated the world with her elegance and grace, but one day, she donned a particular dress that not only made a fashion statement, it made a big splash for scorned women everywhere.
Princess Diana's wardrobe was always impressive, even for royalty. But one day in 1994, the Princess of Wales made a grand appearance at the Serpentine Gallery summer party glammed up in a breathtaking short black dress with an open decolletage.
Fans of the princess wondered why Di slipped into such a brazen outfit. It turns out there was a story behind her special dress.
The day of the Serpentine Gallery summer party was the day Prince Charles finally officially confessed to having an ongoing affair with Camilla Parker Bowles. Princess Diana decided to don the dress as a message to her husband, showing him just what he's missing out on.
The princess considered the little black dress her "revenge" outfit, wanting to appear gorgeous and sexy before her cheating husband, prince or not. She was experiencing a wave of emotions that anyone, whether royal or a commoner, would feel if they were in her shoes.
The dress, created by Greek designer Cristina Stambolian, conveyed Princess Diana's stance against her husband's affair. She wasn't about to spend the day weeping over him.
Princess Diana's loyal fans and followers admired her regal stance, her head held high, her deliberately stunning dress shocking the world that day. She made a statement, that's for sure.

Princess Diana even slipped into some seriously high heels to complement the off-the-shoulder showstopping dress. She clutched a little black silk pocketbook and wore a beautiful choker. The very next day, England's newspapers ran a barrage of photos of the beautiful princess.
When some women are dealt a raw hand in life, they don't allow themselves to be steamrolled. Instead, they stand proud and tall and fight for themselves and their dignity, just like Princess Diana did in her little black "revenge dress." May her memory continue for decades to come.
