Lady Dior bag is named for Lady Diana, Princess of Wales. Ever since its 1994 launch the Lady Dior has been very popular. At the inaugural of the C├ęzanne exhibit in Paris, France's First Lady, Bernadette Chirac, presented this handbag to the princess. It became Diana's favorite handbag and she owned several versions of the purse. In 1996 the purse got its name Lady Dior. The original bag is made of soft lambskin with a Cannage motif and has the Dior charms. Since then several versions have been launched such as ones made from leather and others from embroidered fabric.
