Kensington Palace opens its doors to the public on March 26 where Diana fans will see five iconic dresses worn by the Princess of Wales

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, may have grabbed attention with her elegance and impeccable wardrobe over the past year. But one public figure's iconic style that will never grow old is that of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

To honor the fallen royal, dresses worn by the princess have been put on display at her former home at Kensington Palace in London, the Daily Mail reports.

Dubbed "Diana: Glimpses Of A Modern Dress," the collection includes everything from cocktail dresses to formal gowns and evening wear, the Mirror reports.

The dresses on display will include a black silk shift evening dress by Versace, a black and white cocktail dress by Bellville Sassoon Lorcan Mullanyan and an Elizabeth and David Emanuel designed black silk taffeta gown.

Patrons will also see an ivory silk formal dinner dress and a fuchsia and purple silk chiffon dress, both designed by the late Catherine Walker.

Kensington Palace will also showcase art exhibits and a section dedicated to the life of Queen Victoria, notes TIME magazine.

The palace itself just recently reopened after undergoing a $18.8 million renovation, according to the Telegraph.

The exhibition will open to the public on March 26 and will coincide with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this year.
