Princess Diana's White House Dress Sold for HOW Much?

(NBC News)

Kerry Taylor Auctions just sold ten of Princess Diana's most iconic dresses, and, collectively, they fetched $1.2 million. The offerings were very '80s, in the best way possible — think butt bows, crushed velvet, teal sequins, and major shoulder pads.

But the star of the lot was the royal's midnight blue velvet off-the-shoulder Victor Edelstein gown, which she wore during a night of disco dancing with John Travolta during the 1985 State Dinner at the White House.

According to The Daily Beast, the design, which fetched $360,0000, was bought by a British man as "a surprise to cheer up his wife." If a princess dress doesn't put her in a better mood, we don't know what will.
