LONDON (AP) - A lavish white and gold ballet-inspired ball gown worn by Princess Diana has fetched 102,000 pounds ($167,000) at a London auction.

Kerry Taylor Auction said the strapless gown, which features gold sequins, rhinestones and pearl beads, was not designed for Diana _ but the royal chose it herself from a collection by her favorite designers, the Emanuels.

The auction house said Diana wore the dress, which came with a matching headband and optional sleeves, on various occasions.

It said the dress' auction price exceeded initial estimates and went to an unidentified museum abroad.
