    Post Outrage Over 'Princess Diana' Lingerie Ad

    'Princess Diana' Pictured In Underwear In Chinese Lingerie Ad On The Anniversary Of Her Death | World News | Sky News

    Outrage Over 'Princess Diana' Lingerie Ad
    3:05pm UK, Wednesday September 01, 2010

    Alison Chung, Sky News Online

    A Chinese lingerie company has unveiled a new range of underwear featuring a Princess of Wales lookalike model on the 13th anniversary of her death.


    The Princess Diana lookalike is pictured in bra and knickers


    Under the slogan "Feel the romance of British royalty", the ad features the "Princess" wearing a tiara, necklace and blue bra and knickers as she plays a cello to a child.

    The controversial poster has been splashed on giant billboards in shops and airports throughout China for millions to see.

    The firm which has produced the lingerie, Jealousy International, is based in China's southern Guandong province.

    On its website, the manufacturer has a section on the "Diana" range with the further slogan "Free your mind, free your style" and confusingly describes Diana's taste as "French Romantic".

    The apparent attempt to exploit the Princess' image is the latest example of how companies have sought to capitalise on her popularity.

    Britain has restrictions on using images of the Royal Family to promote products but is powerless to act against companies doing so abroad.

    Clarence House, which represents Prince Charles, has declined to comment on the ad.

    But a British journalist who spotted the ad while at Shenzhen airport in the south of the country was appalled.

    Sam Chambers, who has worked in China for a decade, was reported as saying: "I was just going to collect my baggage from the carousel when I saw it flash up on a rolling advertising screen and couldn't quite believe what I was seeing."

    Mr Chambers added: "I thought, surely not, because it was rolling quite quickly. So I waited to check when it came up again and, sure enough, there was an image of Diana. It's all the more striking because today is the anniversary of her death."

    Princess Diana died on August 31, 1997, in a car crash in a tunnel in Paris.

    Her boyfriend Dodi al Fayed and their chauffeur Henri Paul, who were with the Princess in the car, also died in the accident.

    The anniversary of the Princess' death was marked by her admirers who left bouquets of flowers outside Kensington Palace.

    Sorry lads but remind who Dianna was again I never fell for British tabloid hype and when she was alive they hyped her and the monarchy loved it because it took the eyes off them and when she died they went ballistic.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm sure she was a lovely lady that shipped her kids off to boarding school while she jetted around the world with her lover, of course we do have those fond memories of her kissing African babies, more BS. There were a lot greater people than her lost over the decades and she would be way down the list of people I would get outrage by the defamation of her character.

    Does the model really look all that like Princess Diana? Either way, she won't be the first dead celeb dug up by these ghouls to sell their shit to us.

    I think reality and Diana went their separate ways many years before she died. After that, all we were left with was media manipulation

    Dont know about the lookalike but after what? 13 years? Ppl really need to move on. Ok its sad that she was killed but its being so long and she has just joined a grioup of other ppl in similar tragedies. Grace of Monaco being one. The advert is bad taste because of the timing but ppl do need to move on.
