Auction house Sotheby’s said four bidders competed for nearly five minutes for British designer Victor Gem’s sleeveless, floor-length, purple gown.
Among other things, Diana wore the dress for a photo shoot for the magazine “Vanity Fair” shortly before her death. The auction house did not initially say who bought it.
