A dress that once belonged to Princess Diana has sold for £102,000 at auction.

The gold and white gown was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, and features sequins, crystals and pearl beads.

Diana wore the creation to the premiere of James Bond film The Living Daylights, as well as to the Royal Charity Premiere of 'Ivan the Terrible' by the Bolshoi Ballet in 1986.

It was sold by Kerry Taylor Auctions in London for £102,000, including buyer's premium, having been estimated to reach between £50,000 and £80,000. There was a huge amount of interest from the US but a museum based in another overseas country made the successful bid.

"This is the 11th Princess Diana dress that I have sold this year, and I feel very lucky and privileged. It is a beautiful dress, worn by a beautiful woman, and deserved to do well."
