Not your average royal, Princess Diana spent her days as a doting mother and humble humanitarian — all while looking impeccably chic. Long before enviable fashion plate Duchess of Cambridge rose to prominence, Diana reigned supreme in all things grace and glamour by exuding endless amounts of charisma — it's no wonder she was dubbed "The People's Princess." Her perfectly tailored dresses and statement-making coats were exquisite in their own right, but it was Princess Di's colossal collection of fascinators that took her timeless style to new heights. From bow-detailed creations to polished pill box hats to ornate plumed toppers, she knew that creating illustrious ensembles could be accomplished at the drop of a hat.
Today would mark Princess Diana's 55th birthday, and in honour of the British beauty, we are celebrating her eternal style with a look back at some of her most fabulous toppers.
