Princess Di's Emanuel ball gown just sold at Kerry Taylor Auctions in London for $167,575.

While the dress wasn't made specifically for Diana (she saw it at a Red Cross benefit fashion show in 1986 and purchased the show model, rather than having one commissioned specifically for her), she chose to wear it repeatedly. The designer, Elizabeth Emanuel, said Di told her that she "loved it."

Diana's Emanuel gown got us thinking about other iconic items from pop culture that have had their moment on the auction block. Curious which ones ended up in your price range? See more below.
