‘The Crown’s’ Emma Corrin On Recreating Princess Diana’s Wedding Dress

Princess Diana didn’t just become the People’s Princess when she married Prince Charles in 1981, she became a full blown fashion icon, too. That is one of the many reasons Emma Corrin was so excited to take on the role in the upcoming season of The Crown.

Though the dress is only in the Netflix series for “a fraction of a moment”, an incredible amount of effort went into its making. “I had so many fittings for it, I think about probably four or five,

In the upcoming fourth season of the hit Netflix period drama, viewers will be introduced to a young Lady Diana Spencer, played by Emma Corrin, as she meets her future husband, Prince Charles.

While Princess Diana went on to become a global style icon, her sense of style was not always up to par, Corrin says.

“That was something I loved about it,” the 24-year-old told Entertainment Weekly.

“Basically, I loved young Diana. You can’t understand old Diana – older Diana – properly without understanding a 19-year-old living with her flatmates, going on her first date with Charles. You need to understand the trajectory that she underwent. But her style was

“It was as incredible as you could imagine,” Corrin tells EW. “It was wonderful. I actually really enjoyed the fittings for the dress. I’m really terrible at fittings, I’m the biggest fidget in the world. I think the whole sewing-tailor team hated me. But I found it fascinating because they literally had to build the wedding dress around me and it took ages. It was a very interesting process. It makes you feel incredibly ‘at one’ with the thing you’re wearing when you’re kind of sewn into it

The streaming service shared a preview image on the show’s official Twitter account, revealing that the costume designer – Emmy award-winning Amy Roberts – wanted to “capture the same spirit” of the original bridal gown, rather than making an exact replica.

Corrin also sports a similar cathedral-length veil, as well as an imitation of Diana’s famed hairstyle.
