Who better to glean wedding dress inspiration from than Lady Di herself? The Mall of America in Bloomington will showcase Princess Diana's iconic dress in preparation for the award-winning exhibit Diana: A Celebration. The exhibit opens Saturday, Feb. 4, and the dress will be displayed in a glass case.
The royal wedding gown is considered one of the most closely-guarded secrets in fashion history. The blinds on the couture shop's windows were closed during the design and security personnel guarded the shop from onlookers seeking a glimpse and a historic fashion story.
Viewers will now have a chance to see the multi-layered gown with more than 10,000 pearls and mother-of-pearl sequins up close. The dress will be displayed in the Mall of America's fourth floor exhibit space.
