The dress Princess Diana danced with John Travolta in sold for $800,000 at an auction of the late princess's dresses in Toronto yesterday. The Victor Edelstein midnight blue velvet gown Diana twirled in at the Ronald Reagan-hosted 1985 state dinner was one of 14 of her dresses a private collector sold at the auction, including two used in Diana's Mario Testino-shot Vanity Fair photo shoots. As William and Kate renew the public interest in the royal family, this is another recent example of Diana's personal items being sold; Diana's letters were put up for auction a few weeks ago. Do you think it's disrespectful for people to sell personal belongings of celebrities who've passed away? Or does it depend on if it's for charity? See more pictures of the auction now.
