‘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

How The Crown’s Costume Designer Made Diana’s Wedding Dress

Amy Roberts, The Crown‘s costume designer, did an impressive job re-creating Princess Diana’s iconic wedding dress. Emma Corrin, who plays Diana Spencer, will be wearing the dress for the royal wedding scene with Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) in season four of the series — and Netflix recently shared some new details on the making of the iconic replica.

Princess Diana’s original ivory-silk wedding dress worn at Buckingham Palace on July 29, 1981, was designed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel. It featured a 25-foot train, a 153-yard tulle veil, three-quarter-length puffed sleeves, and ruffles along the neckline and back of the gown. Netflix shared on Twitter that, for The Crown‘s re-creation, Roberts “wanted to pull in many of the style choices and create the same spirit of David & Elizabeth Emanuel’s original design, but make something new.”

Netflix added: “Without access to the original patterns, Amy collaborated with David

Princess Diana’s wedding dress, which she wore to her 1981 nuptials, undeniably caught viewers’ attention around the world. Today, the same can be said of the latest iteration of her iconic gown, made for Netflix’s The Crown; the late royal’s ensemble was recreated for the show and is so accurate, one of Princess Di’s wedding dress designers spoke out to praise it. According to People, Elizabeth Emanuel, who brought the original garment to life—25-foot-long train and all—alongside her former husband, David Emanuel, thinks the copy is spot-on. “The dress looks lovely,” Elizabeth told the outlet. “They have done a great job in capturing the spirit of the wedding gown.”

The resemblance between Diana’s dress and the recreation is uncanny—but, contrary to initial reports, the designer did not give The Crown’s producers the original patterns. The fashion mogul does, however, love the show and is looking
