“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

Let’s face it: winter is coming. But if there’s anything that can comfort us about shorter days and more time spent inside, it’s the anticipation surrounding the release of season four of Netflix’ “The Crown” on November 15.

The new season will introduce viewers to a new love interest of Prince Charles (played by Josh O’Connor): Lady Diana Spencer, played by Emma Corrin. And over the weekend, the network fueled even more excitement about the upcoming season with its release of the first photos of actor Emma Corrin, who plays Princess Diana, on the royal’s wedding day in her iconic wedding dress.

In addition to her humanitarian work, dedication to her children, and graceful composure in nearly every setting, Diana was known for her unique style sensibility, which evolved from demure to confident over the course of her all-too-short life. And while she had

Princess Diana’s Wedding Dress Designer Praises The Crown ‘s Version of Gown: ‘It Captures the Spirit’

Netflix The Crown version of Princess Diana’s dress

One of the designers of Princess Diana’s iconic wedding dress is praising how The Crown has brought the gown to life in the upcoming new season.

Elizabeth Emanuel says that actress Emma Corrin, who plays Princess Diana in the hit Netflix series’ fourth season, looks “wonderful” in the gown after the first image was released over the weekend.

“The dress looks lovely,” Emanuel tells PEOPLE. “They have done a great job in capturing the spirit of the wedding gown.”

Elizabeth created the original dress, with its stunning 25-ft train that unfolded down the steps of St. Paul’s Cathedral on that July day nearly 40 years ago, with her then-husband David Emanuel. David spoke with the production team during the making of the fourth season, a Crown source confirms. But contrary to some reports, he and Elizabeth didn’t lend the producers the original

‘The Crown’ Fully Revealed Its Version of Princess Diana’s Wedding Dress

Des Willie, Netflix

The Crown has just revealed the very first image of actor Emma Corrin donning Princess Diana’s iconic wedding gown, which will appear in the Netflix series’ upcoming fourth season. Because The Crown always gives the people what they want.

Despite the dress’s uncanny resemblance to the original ivory silk taffeta gown, which David and Elizabeth Emanuel designed for Princess Diana’s 1981 wedding to Prince Charles, the series explained in a tweet that they didn’t intend to create an exact replica for Corrin.

Rather, The Crown costume designer Amy Roberts “wanted to capture the same spirit and style” of Princess Diana’s wedding dress in real life.
