Lady Diana (†36) is a timeless style icon. She enchanted nations with her gorgeous looks and is still inspiring designers and the closets of royals from European royal families to this day. The royals still do a certain fashion trick inspired by Diana today.

Royals follow in Lady Diana's footsteps

Lady Di was without question a trendsetter. Even after her tragic death, which has many conspiracy theorists still distraught, her best fashion moments remain unforgotten.

A special shoe trick still makes it to royal life to this day: straps that are worn crossed at the front not only ensure a good and comfortable hold in pumps or sandals but also give the outfit the finishing touch with their elegant appearance.

Royals from all over Europe still like to be inspired by this look today, for example, Queen Letizia from Spain. Here she combines the shoes with a colorful dress, giving the look a casual touch.

The straps don't always have to be crossed, there are also some other variations: Queen Máxima of the Netherlands wears the shoes in a gold-tone, matching the playful dress of the same colour that she wore for the 50th anniversary of the Dutch National Ballet.

Sofia of Sweden also wears the straps in cream tones to the christening of her son with Prince Carl Philip of Sweden. The high heels looked great with the matching white dress.
