British actress Joely Richardson conjured up the spirit of Princess Diana at last night's (16JAN05) Golden Globe Awards by wearing a copy of a gown the tragic royal once dazzled the Cannes Film Festival with.

Richardson, who was nominated as a Best Actress in a TV Drama, missed out on wearing the exact dress she fell in love with all those years ago because Diana auctioned the gown off for charity.

But she has since befriended designer CATHERINE WALKER, who made the turquoise gown for Diana.

Richardson says, "Catherine is a great friend of mine and I said, `Do you know that dress? Is there any way that I could have a version of that?'

"I love it. It's simple and elegant."
