Finally, The Crown is back, and we know you’re already hooked. The proof? The endless scrolls of royal-related hot takes on Instagram and Tiktok. And there’s one topic dominating the vast majority of the conversation: Princess Diana fashion. As one of the most enduring style icons of our time, it’s hardly a surprise that her style back catalogue is being referenced in outfits the internet over. From her off-duty cycling shorts to her oversized blazers and memorable knits, Diana was nothing short of a style icon. But the most iconic outfit of them all? The Revenge Dress, that iconic little black dress that had everyone talking. Here’s how to recreate the look for yourself…
