📺Cure it with Movies/Books: Lady D.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of Lady Diana Spancer's death. Known better as Lady D., she has been a fashion icon and used her influence and popularity to bring to attention causes close to her heart: from HIV patients to drug addicts to anti-person landmines in war zones, she tried to focus all her work in making the world better.

She was a warrior"

And what's the ultimate statement that confirms you as a fashion icon? A bag named after you! Think about it: Jane Birking and Grace Kelly have their own signature bags designed by Hermes. For Diana Spencer there's Lady D(ior) by Christian Dior.

Whether you think she was a 'victim' of the strict British court's rules or someone who made her mission to destroy Prince Charles credibility as future King of England, Lady Diana Spencer left a mark both in the UK and worldwide. I belive that her philanthropic work was sincere, she really wanted to make a difference for the least fortunate...I also think she was a fragile woman in a reality far too big for her.

"HIV does not make people dangerous to know. So you can shake their hands and give them a hug. Heaven knows they need it!"
