Any chance to revel in Princess Diana’s style, and we are in. Today, Kristen Stewart was seen on the Dülmen, Germany set of her latest movie Spencer, in which the Twilight actress portrays the late Lady Di. True to the royal’s style, Stewart was spotted in a tartan tweed blazer, cream turtleneck, knee-length skirt, sheer tights, and sunglasses. (Even her punk rock lengths had been transformed into Diana’s famous shaggy pixie.)
It was a look pulled straight from the Princess of Wales’s January 1989 trip to Portsmouth—but of course she was no stranger to plaid, wearing the classic print on countless occasions. (For proof just queue up season four of Netflix’s The Crown, which sees Emma Corrin play a young Lady Di.) So what else will Stewart wear in her portrayal of the fashion icon? Only time will tell but one thing is for sure: 32 years on, Princess Diana remains a style muse to many—whether you’re trying to master a sweatshirt and biker short moment or make a tweed blazer look utterly effortless.
“Spencer is a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal turning point in her life,” Stewart says of the forthcoming film. “It is a physical assertion of the sum of her parts, which starts with her given name: Spencer. It is a harrowing effort for her to return to herself, as Diana strives to hold onto what the name Spencer means to her.”
The cast features BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall, Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins and Sean Harris with filming to take place in Germany and the UK according to Variety. It is believed to be release in Fall 2021.
