A dress worn by Diana, Princess of Wales has been sold for more than 600 thousand dollars.

This aubergine velvet ballgown went up for sale for the first time in 25 years.

The dress is one of Princess Diana’s most iconic gowns.

She wore it for both an official royal portrait in 1991 and an intimate Vanity Fair spread in 1997.

Sotheby’s said it sold for 604 thousand dollars, just over five times the 120 thousand auction estimate.

Designed by couturier Victor Edelstein, the strapless number features a sculptural sweetheart neckline and a tulip-shaped skirt.

It last sold for 24 thousand dollars in 1997.
