The Crown has recreated one of the most iconic moments in royal history.
Elizabeth Debicki, who will portray the People's Princess beginning in Season 5, was recently spotted filming Princess Diana's appearance at a June 1994 gala at the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens. Debicki wears a recreation of the little black dress by Greek designer Christina Stambolian, which is popularly known as the "revenge dress".
The form-fitting dress, which hit just above the thigh and had an off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline, had reportedly sat in the Princess of Wales' wardrobe for three years before the event, due to concerns that it may have been "too daring" for royal standards. She decided to wear the LBD to the gala after her previously planned look, a Valentino gown, was leaked to the press, according to People.
Princess Diana made a statement with her appearance at the event, which took place on the same night that Prince Charles admitted that he had been unfaithful during their marriage on national television. Rather than cancel her public appearances, Diana grabbed the public's attention with a look that went against royal protocol, as off-the-shoulder necklines were typically discouraged at royal appearances.
The Crown is known for its detailed re-creations of the royal family's looks, and the "revenge dress" is no exception.
