Fourteen of Princess Diana's most famous dresses went up for sale in Canada yesterday, including the midnight-blue gown she wore when she hit the dance floor with John Travolta at The White House in 1985.

The famous off-the-shoulder gown sold for a staggering $800,000 at Toronto's Waddington Auctioneers. It was donated by Maureen Rorech Dunkel, who bought 14 of the 79 dresses that were sold by Princess Diana in 1997 for $870,000, just weeks before she died. The entire collection on sale in Toronto is expected to fetch up to $6 million.

Twenty years later, Diana's dresses are still as popular as ever. Remind yourself of some of Diana's famous looks with her best fashion moments.
