There's no question that Princess Diana was one of the most fashionable women of the 20th century -- she was a stalwart of British designers and the looks of the day. And now, many of her top fashion hits are going on display in an exhibit called "Diana: Her Fashion Story."

Kensington Palace announced earlier this week that the wardrobe will go on display on February 24, 2017, and was commissioned to celebrate the life of the People's Princess 20 years after her tragic death. 

The palace said in a press release that her adoring public can expect tons of different looks, "from the more romantic outfits of her first public appearances to the glamorous ones she embraced in later life as she became ever more confident about her style."

And while a lot of the details (and clothes) are being ironed out, we do know some of the pieces that will make an appearance, including Di's Emanuel blouse that she wore for her engagement portrait in 1981.

And there's also a Victor Edelstein velvet gown -- but you probably know it as the "Travolta" gown, as it's what she wore when she famously danced with John Travolta in 1985.

"The exhibition will bring together an extraordinary collection of garments, ranging from the glamorous evening gowns worn on engagements in the Eighties, to the chic Catherine Walker suits that made up Diana's working wardrobe in the Nineties," the press release says.

Though the exhibit doesn't open until February 24, you can bet your padded shoulder jacket that we'll be on the first plane over to London to see it.
