I think she was beautiful, especially when she first burst on the scene as a young bride. Her later years gave her more of a hardened look..I am guessing all the stress and trauma with her marriage as well as the many years of severe bulimia took it's toll. I do think she dressed with style...yes she was a product of the fashion at that time but my goodness she made the best of it and did well (having millions to spend on fashion certainly helps!)

Now to the point of this thread. I just came across a clip involving her on youtube.
In the past I never found her physically attractive at all.

Its clear to me why this is. 1) short hair and the hair styles in general, would have looked far better with long hair. 2) Conservative clothing
3) Unfeminine clothing and physical aspects

I think if these things had been different she actually would have been attractive. She had the core ability to be so.

What are your thoughts?




Princess Diana Tribute-Candle in the Wind - YouTube
I never found her that attractive either.
But I'm a younger guy so that 80's hair and clothing just doesn't work for me at all

I think this thread is legit because Princess Diana was hailed by the media as a great beauty. Was she? Probably not (hair, face too masculine, and so on). She was reasonably attractive, and the media likes to overrate women who are. Another issue is that British beauty standards likely are lower than America's.

Are we judging physical beauty or hairstyles? Hair can be changed in minutes, features not so much

Most of what we see now as "in fashion" will probably look ridiculous in the future too. Fake hair extensions, fake eyebrows, lip colors that make women look like clowns, ridiculous high heels that women cannot even walk on, dark eyeshadows that make women look like domestic violence victims, bodies so full of implants that they look like comic book heroins or caricatures. Some people however relate this freak show fake look with "sexy and beautiful" especially very young people

If Diana was born in 1990 in California all she needed to do was get some implants, have a nose job, wear slutty clothes and put on 3 pounds of make up and most people would think she was "hot" because she would resemble the 2013 celebrity look.

Diana indeed had very nice features and she was a very pretty woman.

During the wedding she looked quite pretty and innocent, as she matured she became what I'd call a 'handsome' woman, not meaning ugly or like a man, but still womanly but with stronger, bolder features if you like.

I wouldn't say "Yikes" about Kate Middleton, but she is very plain and ordinary looking. I think that's part of what makes her attractive, though. She isn't flashy and she is kind of low-key. I think that works well for the role she has to play.

I would have to say the " in fashion" we see looks ridiculous now. Having to fake it all to try to attract men or look like some celebrity porn star is not attractive. Diana didn't need all that stuff she was a natural. Hopefully young girls growing up now will turn away from the fake stuff and let their own beauty shine.

Not pretty. Not ugly.
Personality and smile attractive.

I think she was beautiful, but not conventionally "pretty" - which is different. I loved her look! She was stunning and striking.

By contrast, Kate Middleton is more conventionally "pretty". Yet, I don't think she is as striking or stunning, if that makes any sense.

Both are or were beautiful women. There are different types of beauty, and the two of them, from the same country, are quite the opposites.
