Dorinda Medley’s Surprise Makeover

Turns out that The Real Housewives of New York City beauty Dorinda Medley has another major connection to Princess Diana — besides a similar hairstyle and an uncanny resemblance to the iconic princess (and dressing Diana in her cashmere line!). Dorinda's boyfriend John Mahdessian's company Madame Paulette handles cleaning and restoration of all sorts of priceless articles of clothing, including those once worn by Princess Diana.

Since the wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is almost here (!!), Mahdessian posted an Instagram with three of the Diana's stunning evening dresses that Madam Paulette restored. "With the #royalwedding tomorrow, we can't help but look back on Princess Diana's dresses we had the honor of restoring," Mahdessian wrote in the caption.  

What a royal honor! We can't wait until tomorrow to see what wedding gown Markle chooses, and how it will pay tribute to her late mother-in-law's iconic style.  

Even though our wardrobe isn't quite Princess Diana-levels of haute couture, we can still give our clothes the Madame Paulette treatment with the cleaner's at-home stain remover kit — tested and approved by Dorinda herself
