When we heard that Princess Diana’s dresses were going up for auction again, we knew they’d go for a pretty penny.
And they DID!
All ten of the dresses auctioned off at Kerry Taylor Auctions on Tuesday raked in a whopping $1,209,120.
The best seller in the lot was the Victor Edelstein gown Princess Di wore when she danced with John Travolta at the White House, which fetched $362,736.
No word if Prince William bought one as a surprise for Kate Middleton, but if not, no worries. She'll always have that fabulous sapphire and diamond ring!

It's all Kate Middleton's influence!
We have to say that before the Duchess of Cambridge and after Princess Diana, we did not give a hoot about the royals' fashion choices or their weird, funny hats.
But we care now more than ever!

We'll take all the Naomi we can get!
Miz Watts covers the January issue of Manhattan magazine in a stunning black & white Oscar de la Renta one-shoulder gown, and we are truly mesmerized!
She looks AH-Mazing!
The dress, which features origami folds at the bust and waist, fits the 44-year-old blonde beauty like a glove. But who's surprised? Few people understand what works for a woman's body quite like Mr. de la Renta!

Naomi Watts has crossed over to the dark side!
The blonde beauty debuted her darker 'do while filming, Diana, in London on Tuesday.
For this particular scene Watts, who plays Princess Diana, has a romantic encounter with her lover, Dr. Hasnat Khan, but to keep the relationship on the DL, she would dye her hair to throw off the paparazzi.
Not only is this making us more excited for the film, but we’re absolutely loving Naomi's newly dyed tresses.

TIME magazine has made a list of the top 100 most influential fashion icons since 1923, but it's who they left off the list that's really creating a buzz.
Noticeably missing from the list of designers, models, photographers, editors, muses, and stylists include Rachel Zoe, Tyra Banks, Roberto Cavalli, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Sarah Jessica Parker — and that's just off the top of our head!
Geez. TIME's selection committee is strict!
So who were the lucky 100 that made the cut? See for yourself AFTER THE JUMP!
