Los Angeles: A pair of dresses which belonged to Princess Diana have gone under the hammer for USD 276,000.

Designed by the late Catherine Walker, the two dresses were sold on Saturday by Julien`s Auctions to the Museo de la Moda in Santiago, Chile, reported USA Today.

Both dresses were worn by Diana at major events. The first one, a black crepe evening gown, sold for USD 144,000, was worn during a state visit in 1992.

The second dress, a light-blue silk chiffon strapless gown with an accompanying stole, sold for USD 132,000, was worn on three occasions - in 1987 at the Cannes film Festival, in September 1989 for a performance of Miss Saigon at the Theatre Royal and for a 1987 portrait sitting with photographer Terrance Donovan.
