On November 9, 1985 Prince Charles and Princess Diana visited the White House. A ball was held while they were there, where Diana famously danced with John Travolta. Weirdly enough, there are more pictures of her dancing with Travolta than there are with anyone else, and none with Charles. She wore a wonderful ink-blue (almost black) fish-tailed dress with a Bardot neckline, not to mention diamond and sapphire earrings and a diamond, sapphire, and pearl necklace.
This continues my theme of royal/Anglo obsession. I just love Diana - she's one of few '80s and '90s British icons that I can appreciate.
