The Most Dangerous Revenge Dresses

As writes the periodical “In Style” breakups are never easy. Women require a great deal of time to get over the depression. Then comes a time when with a magical touch something happens and you’re finally ready to get back out there and show the world that you’ve moved way past what’s-his-name.

That’s where the revenge dress comes in. A revenge dress gives you a new lease on your social life in minutes. The periodical has presented the most wanted revenge dresses in the history and how they originated.
And believe it or not, the term actually has pretty aristocratic origins.
Princess Diana in her revenge dressIn November of 1994, Princess Diana was in the middle of a publicity storm following her separation from Prince Charles. All the royal periodicals started addressing the dress that Diana wore at one of the events held in London. So on the very night, Diana stepped out in a chic black curve-hugging, off-the-shoulder dress to attend a party in London. And so, the revenge dress was born.

Of course, Diana was already known as a royal trendsetter. But before that night, her look was demure, sophisticated, and regal, rather than sexy. That dress was the ultimate fashion power play. And now, more than 20 years later, women everywhere are still channeling their inner Lady Di.

And now let’s take a look back at the best revenge dresses of all-time.
