When Princess Diana visited President Ronald Reagan and his wife at the White House in 1985, Nancy Reagan constructed the evening so Diana would have some great guys to dance with. She invited John Travolta, Tom Selleck, and Clint Eastwood and made sure they knew it was their American duty to dance with the Princess of Wales - not that they would have had a problem with that.

On the night of the party Diana wore what’s now referred to as “The Travolta Dress,” specifically because Diana chose it to wear while she was dancing with the Saturday Night Fever star. The can be seen at the exhibit “Diana: Her Fashion Story” at Kensington Palace.
