Diana's spare wedding dress at auction, and the princess wearing the real thing to wed Prince Charles in 1981.

A bidder has paid £84,000 (about $131,000 U.S.) for Princess Diana's wedding dress replica, which she commissioned as a "spare" should the original be deemed unwearable, Metro reports.

London's Kerry Taylor auction house sold the ivory taffeta and antique lace Emanuel gown alongside a pair of extra heart-detailed Clive Shilton slippers (which fetched £36,000, or $56,000 U.S.) worn on the late royal's wedding day.  

The auction also saw the Disaya dress worn by the late Amy Winehouse on the cover of Back to Black fetching roughly $67,000, while a gold dress belonging to Elizabeth Taylor raised about $47,000 and a black dress designed by Alexander McQueen went for approximately $122,000.

Diana, however, appears to be a top seller: Two of her dresses were sold for $276,000 earlier this year.

In related news, the Duchess of Cambridge inherited Princess Diana's favorite earrings.
