AceShowbiz –Elizabeth Debicki continues to nail her portrayal of Princess Diana for an upcoming season of “The Crown“. In a new set picture, the actress could be seen perfectly recreating one of the late British royal family member’s most notable looks.
The set picture featured the Australian actress filming a scene on the England film set for the hit Netflix show’s season 5. She donned a slinky, black dress that mirrored the Princess of Wales’ iconic outfit designed by Greek designer Christina Stambolian.
Princess Diana wore the dress to a Vanity Fair fundraiser for the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens in 1994. People called the look the “revenge dress” because the princess wore it on the night ITV aired a documentary in which her then-estranged husband Prince Charles admitted to having an affair with now-wife Camilla during their marriage.
Back to the picture, it also saw Debicki completing her look with a multi-layered pearl choker adorned with a sapphire surrounded by diamonds, which was a replica of the one Diana sported at the fundraiser. It was said that the centerjewel was originally from a brooch that Diana received from Queen Elizabeth II’s mother, Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
While many praised Princess Diana’s portrayal on “The Crown”, Jemima Khan slammed the show for it in a new interview. “We worked together on the outline and scripts from September 2020 until February 2021,” she told The Sunday Times of creator Peter Morgan. “When our co-writing agreement was not honored, and when I realized that particular storyline would not necessarily be told as respectfully or compassionately as I had hoped, I requested that all my contributions be removed from the series and I declined a credit.”
“It was really important to me that the final years of my friend’s life be portrayed accurately and with compassion, as has not always happened in the past,” she explained.
A spokesperson for the hit show, however, denied that Khan had “never been contracted” as a writer, but had merely helped producers with their research. “Jemima Khan has been a friend, fan and a vocal public supporter of ‘The Crown’ since season one,” the representative shared.
In season 5 of “The Crown”, Debicki will be joined by Dominic West who will star as Prince Charles.
