Spencer Costume Designer on Princess Diana’s Fashion

Would you dare to reinvent a fashion icon’s wardrobe? Spencer costume designer Jacqueline Durran was tasked with representing Princess Diana’s style in the new film starring Kristen Stewart, but not recreating anything precisely (a la The Crown). For a celebrity whose looks are so legendary they require little description—the wedding gown, the revenge dress, the black sheep sweater—obscuring her outfits so that they are a dreamlike version of themselves is no small feat, even for a costume designer who has two Oscars under her belt.

Fashion trends repeating themselves isn’t necessarily groundbreaking — you’ve undoubtedly noticed the resurgence of Y2K fashion literally everywhere. Gen Z is obsessed with pulling from their parents’ wardrobe and obsessed with nostalgia and designers diving into the archives for inspiration, it’s only natural that some early aught trends will make a comeback. Referencing the iconic The Devil Wears Prada scene, Take Andy Sachs (played by Anne Hathaway) lumpy blue sweater, for instance. Thanks to Miranda Priestley, we all know that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise. It’s not lapis. It’s actually cerulean. 

The girl boss editor in chief also made us blithely aware that Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns in 2002, and
