Kristen Stewart Wears A Heavenly Princess-Diana Inspired Dress In ‘Spencer’

The film's official poster references several of Diana's most iconic looks.

A stunning new teaser poster has given us a taste of what’s to come in Kristen Stewart’s upcoming film, Spencer, where she’ll play the iconic role of Princess Diana.

Spanning just three days of Diana’s life in the early 90s, the film will focus on one of her most pivotal points as she realises her marriage to Prince Charles is failing. 

In the striking new still which was released as a cover poster overnight, the film’s emotional energy is undeniable—it depicts a distraught Diana with her head bowed and her body slumped on the floor.

In full, Diana-inspired wardrobe, Stewart wears a stunning white gown in the image. The strapless design features cool gold embroidery and a tulle fringe. A glimpse of a pearl necklace is seen hanging around her neck.

The still is synonymous with some of the late Princess’ most iconic looks—namely her 1981 wedding gown, designed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel. Like the film’s image, the bridal design featured a long train, puff sleeves and an abundance of fabric. 

The dress in the film’s cover image also emulated that of a striking (albeit slightly less well-known) gown worn by Diana in 1987 at a James Bond film premiere. This strapless Emanuel dress again featured delicate gold detailing. Lo and behold, the People’s Princess also paired a pearl necklace with the look.

The film will mostly be set inside the family’s Sandringham Estate, and will take place over the Christmas break. It follows the Princess’ major realisation that her marriage is unravelling, subsequently prompting her to reevaluate her life. 

Alongside her fragmented marriage, the film is set to touch on her incredibly close bond with her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. 

There’s not too long to wait now, expect the film to drop in cinemas on November 5.
