Some days ago the trailer and an image for the Spencer movie were released and as incredible as it sounds we could compare how amazing the trailer was with the poster itself. The image shows a huge, huge white dress full of embroidery with Kristen Stewart as Diana in a very dramatic pose looking quite enigmatic and sad at the same time.
While the movie is set to release very soon and the American actress has been on everybody's lips since the drama film was released mere days ago at the Venice Film Festival (receiving a five-minute standing ovation btw) The film is competing for the prestigious Golden Lion and the story follows a troubled and dispirited Princess Diana during a 1991 Christmas visit to Sandringham House and while there she decides to end her marriage to Prince Charles, played in the movie by actor Jack Farthing.
“December 1991: The Prince and Princess of Wales’s marriage has long since grown cold,” a description of the Pablo Larraín film reads. “Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting, and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different.”
Anyway, while we wait for the film to be released to us mere mortals, let's dig more into the secrets of -that- amazing poster. First of all, you must admit that the poster delivers mixed feelings since it is equally full of grief and grace. If you think about it, that's the pose that every Disney princess takes when dealing with a big big problem. In simple words, it really looks beautiful.
According to Vogue Paris, “the dress is an evening gown in beige organza, enhanced with gold and silver sequins which form fine floral branches. With a whalebone bustier, the neckline is bordered by a delicately pleated tulle flounce highlighted with sequins and a satin band. A satin bow encircles the dress on the front while the skirt is fitted to the hip before its full length unfolds, with thousands of ruffles and gathers.”
Such elegance could be achieved only by Chanel (sorry not sorry but that's the truth) who recreated the Spring/Summer 1988 Haute Couture show gown with embroidery made by Lesage. According to the outlet, “miraculous hands of the five seamstresses “ made this superb gown possible in no less than 1,034 hours of work, including 700 for the embroidery alone. The choice to go with Chanel makes sense given Kristen Stewart's eight-year relationship with the brand. The actor has been an ambassador for Chanel since 2013. In fact, they describe her as a modern woman, strong and sensitive at the same time.
