One of the world's most gorgeous and well-loved women died after a car accident in Pont de l'Alma, Paris on August 31, 1997.
Diana was a part of the world's wealthy set, an elegant, fashionable woman, an ambassador for the unfortunate, and the former Princess of Wales.
The reality of her life was vastly removed from anyone else's.
Yet she touched millions of lives with her simple, innocent charm.
Her violent, poignant death saw the world mourn her deeply.
Ten years later, we remember the woman who was Diana.
