|Princess Diana Dress Sold at Toronto Auction |
TORONTO (AP).- A dress worn by Princess Diana when she danced with John Travolta brought in the top bid at a Toronto auction that featured some of late princess' well-known designer gowns.
The midnight-blue silk velvet dress designed by Victor Edelstein sold for 800,000 Canadian dollars ($821,000). Diana wore the Edwardian-inspired gown with off-the-shoulder straps while taking a memorable spin on the dance floor with Travolta during a 1985 White House state dinner.
Prior to Thursday night's sale, auction house Waddington's had listed the estimated selling price of the dress between 800,000 Canadian dollars and 1 million Canadian dollars.
Stephen Ranger, vice president of business development for Waddington's, says it will take a few days to compile a final tally of all 14 dresses sold at the collection.
Princess Diana died in a car crash in 1997.
