Costuming Naomi Watts in Diana marks the second time Jacques Azagury made a princess out of a woman.
Costuming Naomi Watts in Diana marks the second time Jacques Azagury made a princess out of a woman. The first time was, of course, when he dressed the icon herself. The designer spoke with British Vogue about the process of creating costumes for the Nov. 1 film and revealed that many of the styles worn by Naomi were fabricated from remnants from Diana's own wardrobe. "The dresses have a true history, a story," he explained. "It was touching to revisit and see Naomi transforming into Diana."
And of the choice to cast Naomi in the role, Azagury gave his approval. He said, "Of course it will never be the same, but if you're going to have anyone attempt it, well, Naomi is the crème de la crème." Tod's and Chopard clearly agree, as they helped recreate Lady Di's style for the film. See all the nostalgic on-set looks in the gallery!
