‘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. But among all the classic looks of Princess Di’s, there’s the wedding dress, which Corrin has said was quite the experience.

Speaking to Radio Times, Corrin said recreating Princess Diana’s wedding dress for the screen was “mad”, physically very heavy, but thoroughly enjoyable. “I loved the process of the fittings actually, weirdly, almost more than the wearing it on the day,” she said.

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

There are thousands of very credible women across Australia fighting for equal rights | Emma Dawson | Opinion

The prime minister, Scott Morrison, is angry with women. Not all of us, just those making a fuss about the woeful lack of attention to women’s workforce participation, economic security and safety in the budget his treasurer handed down on Tuesday night.

After early childhood education advocate and journalist Georgie Dent published an article in Women’s Agenda pointing out that the biggest-spending budget in history had allocated roughly a third of 1% of its funds for women’s economic security (citing a figure I tweeted from the Per Capita account during the budget presentation on Tuesday night), she received a call from the PM’s office to complain that “no one credible” was making such a complaint, and that “nothing in the budget is gendered”.

To quote one famous working woman: big mistake. Big. Huge.

Within a couple of hours, the hashtag #CredibleWomen was born, and soon trending in Australia. Twenty-four

  • Emma Roberts received a vagina-inspired floral bouquet as a baby shower gift.
  • Emma is expecting a baby boy with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund.

    Here are words I never thought I’d write: Emma Roberts is showing off her vagina-inspired floral bouquet that she received in honor of her pregnancy. Yep, you read that correctly. Emma is expecting her first child with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund and shared some pregnancy goodies on Instagram that she received at her baby shower.

    Like a lot of us, I’m curious about celeb mamas-to-be, so I was ~casually~ perusing Emma’s IG when I stumbled upon the rather surprising image. My brain registered the roses, the colors, and then bam! I realized that I was looking at a vagina. I then proceeded to watch her stories again, and again, and again. You know, like any normal human would.

    Emma seemed to love the gesture as well because she captioned
