Photographs of Princess Diana provide highlights of her wardrobe--from designer evening gowns, suits, and dresses to informal and sports wear--chronicling her evolving sense of fashion

Photographer Graham (Diana, Princess of Wales: A Tribute, Angle, 1997) and Blanchard, fashion editor for the Independent, have collaborated on a book devoted to the fashions and style of the late Princess of Wales. Others have done the same, of course, but Graham has followed the princess from the beginning of her royal life. It is even possible that readers will see some unfamiliar photos among the 225 color shots. Blanchard provides the informative text, noting where, when, and how many times outfits were worn, which were sold at auction (and for how much), etc. Even the most jaded reader will be moved when comparing early pictures of "Shy Di," dressed in fairy-tale ruffles and lace to the last photos of a confident and radiant woman in jeans at work on the Campaign To Ban Land Mines. Expect high demand: magazines will be excerpting this book, which is being published to coincide with a traveling exhibit of Diana's dresses. Strongly recommended for all public libraries and fashion-related collections.?Elizabeth Mary Mellett, Brookline P.L., MA

Since Diana's death, her life has been examined from numerous angles; this time, we see her through the lens of fashion. Diana's fashion sense was analyzed from the moment she stepped on the public stage, and as the most photographed woman in the world, she gave fashion critics plenty to ponder. Photographer Graham, who took thousands of pictures of Diana (including those used in the Christie sale catalog), and fashion-reporter Blanchard look closely at the clothes Diana wore. Rather than moving completely chronologically, the book is divided into chapters that break down her clothes into categories: working wardrobe; diplomatic dressing; casual chic. The color photographs are more than just nice pictures--they give a close-up and personal look at Diana and her evolving fashion sense. Ilene Cooper
