You have to be a superstar! Kristen Stewart has the pleasure of hanging her entire Lady Di wardrobe from “Spencer” in her closet at home. We treat him! Firstly, she sports great and secondly, elegant outfits with a twist look just as good on her as they did on the Princess of Wales.
Ever since the first photos and trailer of Kristen Stewart’s new film “Spencer” went on the net, the media has been filled with excitement. Not only because the American actress looks completely transformed and literally resembles Lady Diana. The authentic 90s costumes worn in the movie K-Stu aka Lady Di delight fashion journalists and film critics as well. And not only that!
Kristen herself was so excited about her wardrobe that she has now admitted: “I just took everything with me”.
Kristen feels a connection to Diana’s clothes
In an interview with Dish Nation, Kristen Stewart also explained why: “I feel a deep connection with the costumes. I love them! They are so wonderfully made and because I have that connection, the costume designer told me at the end of the film, ‘I don’t know what to do with them, I made them for you. You should just take them with you.’ Then I gave her my address and now they are all completely ironed and put in clothespins in my cupboard.”
Diana wasn’t always considered a style icon
Costume designer Jacqueline Durran, who was already responsible for the simple outfits in “Atonement” and “Little Women”, grew up in Great Britain and remembers that although Diana is a style icon to many and always has Her looks were not praised so much. At that time it became like today. Durran’s style board for Spencer was decorated with squares, colored blocks, and portraits of the Princess of Wales. The costume designer tried to get the feel of Diana’s style rather than just copy the looks.
Kristen and Lady Diana: They both love Chanel
We know Kristen Stewart is a huge fan of the luxury brand Chanel since she posed in front of the camera as Karl Lagerfeld’s collection for Chanel in 2014. Since then, the superstar has hardly worn anything else at official events! Sure, extravagant couture and chic outfits (like this) have been created for the most stylish woman in Hollywood.
However, the fashion house looked forward to an elite fan club even before the time of K-Stew. It also included the Princess of Wales. During a visit to France in 1988, Princess Diana stood out in her long, bright red Chanel coat, which she paired with a matching hat and remains famous to this day.
Strong Women, Strong Colors
Princess Diana was known for her bold and colorful taste in fashion. The princess was especially fond of the dark blue navy blazer by Chanel, and the royal blue jacket she wore to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in 1992 also found its way onto Jacqueline Durran’s mood board. Next: The pale yellow suit in which Kristen Stewart later stormed the grasslands of Sandringham Castle, pulled Chanel pumps off her feet and snapped the cheeky Napoleon hat off her head.
Diana and Kristen have the same taste in fashion
Not only do the two fashion fans share their love for Chanel. Lady Di and Kristen have a lot in common, first and foremost a preference for unusual styling. In the mid-1990s, Diana helped make fitness clothing attractive for everyday wear. The princess has been regularly photographed after a morning workout at London’s Chelsea Harbor Club and her outfits have become fashion statements. For example, she paired sporty sneakers and leggings with classy pieces like Gucci’s bamboo bag and XL sunglasses.
The first photos from the movie “Spencer” show Lady Diana’s preference for diamonds and tweets. Distinctive British gentry descended. While the look isn’t generally one of Kiston’s favorite styles, that isn’t, as is well known, still can be. As you know, he already has the perfect punk attitude.
Sporty Brit chic meets French elegance
Today, cycling shorts are appropriate even for official occasions and Kristen Stewart quickly copied the move from her icon. On her way to the “Today” interview, she wowed the press with a Chanel outfit, which included the distinctive black Tweet jacket and — of course — cycling shorts and sneakers. The look is not visible in the film, but it is so successful that we even want to tear our caps off our heads with enthusiasm and shout: Chapo!
