Behold this £3,000 silk Escada tie owned and worn by the late Princess Diana. If it appeals, you’ve got just under a week left to scrounge up the money before it goes under the hammer of Reeman Dansie auctioneers later this month.
Diana is on its way to the big screen, now that the eponymous biopic starring Naomi Watts has just been picked up for US distribution. With the news comes our very first official photo of the actress in the role of the People’s Princess. What do you think? Does the look do Di justice?
As her daughter-in-law can certainly attest to, Princess Diana had a difficult time maintaining any sense of anonymity once she married into the royal family — with notoriously tragic consequences. But an anecdote from a new book by friend Cleo Rocos says that on at least one occasion, Lady Di resorted to cross-dressing measures in order to sneak in to a South London gay bar unnoticed by the paps.

Prince William proposed to his now-wife Kate with Princess Diana‘s sapphire and diamond engagement ring, and it looks like he’s also gifted her with coordinating earrings from his late mother.
Camilla Al Fayed, daughter of Harrods owner Mohammed Al Fayed, just bought a controlling stake in Issa. This otherwise unremarkable news is actually completely fascinating because of two key points: Camilla’s brother Dodi died with his girlfriend Princess Diana in that tragic car crash, and Issa is one of Kate Middleton‘s favorite brands.
The much beloved (and sometimes vilified) Princess Diana would have turned 50 on Friday, so Newsweek decided to honor her with a computer generated cover image of the late princess walking alongside Kate Middleton and followed by a security detail. What’s creepy about that?

A new documentary about Princess Diana is stirring up controversy — and not just because it’s being released right after the royal wedding.

The documentary shows never-before-seen pictures of Diana at the crash site as she lay dying.
This week Scott Schuman and Britney Spears got in trouble, Dolce & Gabbana got out of trouble, and Jessica Simpson just got paid. Christian Siriano and Rachel Zoe made headlines, too. Also, Legos!
