Diana, the Princess of Wales, has long been lauded as a fashion icon. And now, in the biggest auction of her dresses since 1997, some of her iconic outfits are up for purchase.


Following the sale of one of Diana’s evening dress for more than $1.1 million in December, co-founder of Julien’s Auctions Martin Nolan said on the “TODAY” show Monday that interest in selling more of her garments has skyrocketed.


“Because of that record amount, you’ve got press, then of course, people started to come to us and say, ‘We have this to sell, we have that to sell,’” Nolan said. “So we built this sale. We’re still building it, in fact.”


More than 150 items will be on the auction block at Julien’s Auctions, and Nolan said people can start bidding today on their website, ahead of the online and in-person sale on June 27.
