The Lady Dior handbag has become the most iconic and charismatic Christian Dior accessory. When Prime Minister Jacques Chirac wife’s contacted Dior for a gift to Lady Diana on the occasion of her visit to Paris, they chose their small classic cannage bag. When the princess returned to Britain, she visited a children's hospital and the photo of Lady Diana with the bag holding a child circled the world. In her honor, the iconic bag was renamed by the firm as the Lady Dior bag.
