The dress Princess Diana wore to a gala dinner at the White House in 1985 has sold at auction for £264,000.
The Princess of Wales wore the midnight blue Victor Edelstein dress to the event which was hosted by then-President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan on 9 November.
The gown featured off-the-shoulder straps, a floor-sweeping velvet skirt, a decorative bow and layers of tulle petticoats.
While the showstopping dress was newsworthy in its own right, it became one of Diana’s most iconic outfits after footage of her dancing with Grease actor John Travolta was seen worldwide.
London-based auction house Kerry Taylor Auctions estimated that the gown would fetch £350,000.
