‘A true style icon!’ The Crown to show Diana’s style evolution – ‘from cutesy to sexy’

Princess Diana was known for her impeccable fashion sense – a royal who was not afraid to show her personality through both her smart and casual outfits. Diana’s style was also at times quirky and unusual. In her earlier years in the spotlight, it was almost childlike. Series four of The Crown captured its essence well: the black sheep jumper, the yellow dungarees, the floral embroidered cardigan, all worn by British actor Emma Corrin. However, series five will reveal a completely different Diana – older and more accustomed to the world’s gaze. As she evolved, her style did too.

According to Samantha, this series will span across the period where “Diana’s style peaked”.

She said: “It’s so interesting to look at her style evolution and what it said about who she became.

“From shy, unassuming teenage nanny who was cast into the spotlight, to sexy, charismatic woman who courted the press, shattered stigmas, and humanised the Royal Family.”

The stylist continued: “I think younger viewers – who perhaps don’t know the Diana story – will see a marked difference in the styling as the series charts the breakdown of her marriage and move to freedom.

“In the last series, we saw lots of knitwear including cutesy details like those knitted sheep, and formalwear that was in-keeping with royal protocol.

“In this season, we’ll see fashion-forward 90s looks such as double denim, cycling shorts, American football-style bomber jackets, and slinky dresses – denoting how Diana broke free from protocol and began navigating her own path.”

Samantha stressed that “Diana realised the power of clothes and used them to send a message”.

She added: “Sure, she did the Martin Bashir interview, but there was clearly so much more she wanted to say. When she felt unable with words, she used her outfits as language.”

One of the main examples of this was Diana’s infamous Revenge Dress.

“Arguably one of the biggest fashion moments of the century,” Samantha said.

“That moment showed real guts.

“On the night Prince Charles’ interview where he confessed his adultery aired, rather than staying quiet, Diana showed up looking her best ever.”

Samantha explained the dress had been made three years earlier by designer Christna Stambolian, but it was considered “too daring” for a member of the Royal Family to wear.

The fashion expert continued: “Diana’s stylist Anna Harvey said that on the night she wore it, Diana wanted to ‘look a million dollars’ and, at the last minute, switched her planned outfit for this one.”

Expected to cover the breakdown of Charles and Diana’s marriage, viewers will be certain to see Elizabeth Debicki donning a similar gown to the Revenge Dress in The Crown.

Samantha said: “I think this series will allow a whole new generation to enjoy and be inspired by the style of Princess Diana.

“It’s over 27 years since she wore that dress and, still, I see her outfits referenced and emulated by women every day.

“That is the mark of a true style icon.”
