BEVERLY HILLS, CA (AP).- Two dresses worn by Princess Diana have sold for a record $276,000 at an auction in Beverly Hills.
Darren Julien, president and CEO of Julien's Auctions, said Saturday that a black crepe evening gown Diana wore during a state visit in 1992 fetched the higher price of $144,000. A light blue strapless gown with accompanying stole sold for $132,000 and was worn on three occasions, including at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival.
The auction attracted bidders from around the world, and organizers believe the recent royal wedding between Diana's son, Prince William, and Kate Middleton helped boost the sale price of both dresses.
Princess Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris nearly 14 years ago.
The dresses were designed by Catherine Walker.
