Princess Diana gowns fetch $1.2m at auction

London - A collection of some of Princess Diana's most memorable evening gowns has fetched over $1.2m at a London auction.

Kerry Taylor Auctions say the highlight - a velvet navy gown Diana wore in 1985 to a White House gala dinner, where she danced with Hollywood star John Travolta - was sold for more than $ 362 000 to a British man.

The Victor Edelstein gown came slightly below the expected maximum price, which was set at $452 000.

Other dresses at Tuesday's vintage fashion auction included several Catherine Walker gowns, worn for state visits around the world.

Diana sold dozens of her dresses at a New York charity auction at the suggestion of her son, Prince William, in 1997 - months before she died in a Paris car crash.
