Season 4 of “The Crown” hit Netflix on November 15, bringing with it the much-anticipated introduction of Princess Diana — and her unforgettable fashion.
As the late Princess of Wales, Emma Corrin dons outfits modeled after the royal’s most memorable looks, from the red and gold Bellville Sassoon dress she wore to the 1981 premiere of “For Your Eyes Only” to her iconic wedding gown by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, with its 25-foot train and enormous skirt and sleeves.
“The Crown” costume designer Amy Roberts previously told The Post that she incorporated plenty of color into Diana’s costumes. “I wanted her clothes to be light and fresh against the more formal color palette of the palace ‘prison’ and the more subdued palettes of the other royals,” she said, adding: “A butterfly caught in a spider’s web if you like.”
Toward the end of Season 4, which is set in the late 1980s as her relationship with Prince Charles is in shambles, Diana adopts a more streamlined, tailored silhouette. “[We] created a more powerful, ‘armored’ look to illustrate her growing realization she would need to fight to survive,” Roberts said.
Even Princess Di’s signature hairstyle — expertly recreated for the series by Sam McKnight, Diana’s personal stylist for seven years until her death in 1997 — and go-to beauty look are reflected in “The Crown.”
“She used blue eyeliner as an armor, applying more, the more she felt vulnerable,” hair and makeup designer Cate Hall told The Post. “We used this strategically to underpin the emotional narrative.”
In our latest episode of “Royal Roundtable” — and below — see how “The Crown” captured Princess Diana’s inimitable style for the screen.
