Jul 1 2014 - 11:30am

We'll always remember Princess Diana for her classic '90s style and the way she translated trends with distinctive elegance. But Diana's charming personality is part of the reason she's become such a significant icon. Her magnetism emanated through her clothing, which was bold in the same way that she was. And many people respected her for her unwavering confidence.

So, today, in honor of Diana's birthday [1], we're taking a look back at some of her most memorable fashion moments — the ones that were documented in much the same way Kate Middleton's are today [2]. We've created our own roundup of pieces that'll help you get Princess Diana's look [3]. Just make sure that you carry yourself with her signature poise and grace. After all, these are the qualities required for a life of true royalty.
