So many people play Princess Diana, but she can be so special

Not long ago, the official trailer for the fifth season of Netflix’s hit drama “The Crown” was released. At the same time, a new wave of character posters and the first wave of stills were released. It was officially announced that the show will be officially launched on November 9. In this season’s plot, the “real crisis” of the British royal family is about to be staged. Diana and Charles set off a media war, and the foundation of the royal family began to crumble.

At the same time, the cast of the new season has also been changed almost entirely, with English actress Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Dominic West as Prince Charles, and Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana.

The hit series “The Crown” has been in the spotlight since it began airing in 2016, and last year’s fourth season won all seven drama categories at the 73rd Primetime Emmy A show that swept the major theatrical categories. Among them, Emma Corrin, who played Princess Diana, was awarded the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.

This season, Elizabeth Debicki, who succeeded Emma Colin, has also attracted much attention. As early as the early stage of the fifth season of last year, many of Reuters’s looks surprised everyone: it’s too expressive!

As a well-respected princess, Diana is also a fashion icon that is still loved by everyone. In recent years, there have been many films and episodes about her. In addition to “The Crown”, the movie “Spencer” released last year and the biographical drama “Diana” released in 2013 also attracted widespread attention.

Among all the actors of Princess Diana, Elizabeth Debicki is the most accepted by the public. Although she is not British, she is the one who is closest to Princess Diana in terms of facial features, appearance and temperament. Bit, from the trailers released so far and Reuters modeling, the similarity is better than the previous actors.

Since announcing Debicki as Princess Diana in season five of The Crown, she has been unanimously voted the most “look-alike” actor, and according to the crew, Debicki won all the awards in an internal meeting. People unanimously agreed, and even said that “finally found the perfect Diana candidate for the last two seasons of “The Crown”.

From the trailer released so far, I can see that her performance is indeed the same. The princess’s appearance is elegant but shy, and her inner forbearance and perseverance are appropriately interpreted.

Of course, what everyone pays most attention to is undoubtedly Debicki’s style in the play. Princess Diana has always been a fashion icon in the minds of many people around the world, and has left many classic and elegant styles for everyone.


This season’s costumes are still styled by Emmy-winning costume designer Amy Roberts, who has been styling the show since Season 3 of The Crown. Judging from the styles that have been exposed so far, the restoration of this season’s clothing is almost 100%.

Among them, Debicki is undoubtedly the most classic “little black dress of revenge” style. When this group of Reuters pictures were released, they were really amazed. Whether it was hairstyle or jewelry and other details, it was almost the style of the princess back then. Perfect reproduction.

Let’s compare the performance of the “real” Princess Diana back then. Except for the slight differences in the figures of the two, there are almost no other problems. I have to say that more than 20 years later, this revenge dress designed by Greek designer Christina Stambolian is still not boring.

In addition, many of Debicki’s other looks in the play, without exception, restore the style of Princess Diana back then. For example, this floral dress that traveled with Charles has the same shoulder pad height and cutting method.
