Princess Diana's Dresses Unite For A Good Cause
The latest event to honor the ten year anniversary of Princess Diana's death is an exhibit of 25 designer gowns that Diana had auctioned off at Christie's a few weeks before her death. The "Diana, Princess of Wales: Dresses for a Cause" exhibit will take place at the Appleton Museum of Art in Ocala, Florida from October 14, 2007 through December 31, 2007. The dress owners will be coming from all over the world to deliver their dresses and the "dress reunion" is expected to be the largest collection of Diana's auctioned dresses ever assembled since the original auction in June 1997. Special events such as appearances by Chef Darren McGrady, Diana's personal chef; Jayne Fincher, Royal Photographer; and Nigel Arch, Director of Kensington Palace are also planned. Tickets to the exhibit are $12 for adults and will raise money for breast cancer education, prevention and research initiatives in Central Florida.
