Kristen Stewart leaned into modern princess vibes last night at the Los Angeles premiere of her upcoming film Spencer, where she plays the late Princess Diana to much buzz. Stewart stepped out in a black Chanel crop top and sheer skirt adorned with ribbon and lace.
On the red carpet, Stewart spoke to Entertainment Tonight about what it was like to film in a replica of Diana's famous wedding dress, calling it a “spooky day” given the weight of the scene. Spencer takes place during the three-day Christmas holiday at Sandringham where Diana decides to end her marriage to Prince Charles.
“When we put that dress on, it is embedded in a montage that kind of flashed her life before you,” Stewart explained. “Even though the movie takes place over a three-day period and even though I play her as a speculatively 29, 30-year-old person, we still wanted to give a taste of the scope of her life. Kind of touch on every part, even if it was in kind of lyrical dance. And the wedding dress is embedded in that montage and putting that on was a spooky day.”
“We didn't have to do the wedding scene but I still had one walk, walking outside of this castle,” she added. “I was like, ‘Wait, but this is so particular.’ This actually does land on a very precise day of her life and [the director Pablo Larraín] was like, ‘Take everything you learned about that day, all of your emotional responses that you have accumulated, put them all right here. What does it feel like to believe in an ideal that then becomes very, very apparently farcical? It's kind of just like, let your heart break in a moment.’ I was like, ‘Okay, got it. Let's go.’”
Spencer comes out on November 5, 2021.
