Since Diana, Princess of Wales has arrived on Netflix’s The Crown, we’re looking at some of her best style moments from 1980s. Today, let’s look at some of her best looks from 1984.

During a royal visit to Oslo in February 1984, Diana wore a stunning red dress with lace floral cutouts along the neckline designed by Jan Van Velden.
