Princess Diana was truly one of a kind, from her unique fashion sense to her command of the red carpet. As much as she was noted for her breathtaking smile and regal presbreathtaking also noted for her sense of fashion. She was legendary for her tiny, formal clutches.
The famous princess was not a stranger to the camera. She knew both how to pose and when not to get caught in a tabloid’s dream. In many of these photos, Diana is dressed to the nines. And the look could not be complete without the hand clutch. These mini-bags could not possibly hold any items. Good thing Princess Di didn’t need to overload on cosmetics!
She did not tote these itty-bitty purses for touch-ups, but rather cover-ups. Diana referred to these hand created designs by Anya Hindmarch as her ‘cleavage bags’. Diana accordingly used her extraordinary clutch collection to “cover-up” her cleavage. Yes, her classiness is timeless.
Designer Hindmarch opened a store in Chelsea in 1993. There, she was able to accessorize the timeless beauty. Hindmarch remembers Princess Di as a “loyal and fun customer”. She even noted that Diana “would come to see us with no bodyguards or any fuss”.
The cleavage clutch finds its way into low-cut photos. Diana cleverly named her mini-bags accordingly. Her small satin purses effortlessly dressed up and covered up her formal wear. Go ahead and take your picture, but there’s no cleavage to capture here!
