Elizabeth Debicki Channels Princess Diana’s Elegance in Strapless Dress at “The Crown” Premiere
The stars of “The Crown” season 5 were out in force at the world premiere in London on 8 Nov. In celebration of the latest series, released on Netflix on 9 Nov., Australian actor Elizabeth Debicki oozed class in a stunning black Dior gown ahead of her debut as Princess Diana, as she takes over from Emma Corrin, who played the “people’s princess” in season 4.
The chic black strapless dress, from Dior’s spring/summer 22 couture collection, was designed with cutout sections around the ribs and pleats around the chest. With added material around the neck to form a choker, the flowing fabric draped onto the floor, falling over the racerback design. Debicki’s gown felt like a modern iteration of Princess Diana’s infamous “revenge dress”, which features in the new season. Layering her wrists with stacks of Dior bangles, Debicki’s hair was styled into a tousled low bun with wavy face-framing strands while her winged eyeliner and peachy lips were the most sophisticated of finishing touches.
Debicki joined the rest of the new season cast on the red carpet including Imelda Staunton who plays the Queen, Dominic West who takes on the role of Prince Charles, and Gillian Anderson, who previously played Margaret Thatcher in the show. Ahead, see all the looks from “The Crown” premiere, and then head to Netflix to watch their stellar performances in series 5.
