Chanel ambassador, actress Kristen Stewart plays the late Princess Diana in the forthcoming biopic ‘Spencer‘ by Pablo Larraín. The film poster features Stewart as late princess in a beige organza evening gown by French couture house Chanel. The dress was entirely remade for the movie in the maison’s ateliers, and it required a total amount of 1034 hours of work (700 hours for embroideries) by five full-time seamstresses.
A look 82, from the Chanel Spring-Summer 1988 Haute Couture collection, is embellished with gold and silver round, while oval or leaf-shaped sequins are forming floral branches.
This strapless, boned dress has a straight neckline trimmed with a delicate pleated tulle ruffle and a frieze composed of ovum and florets, an appliquéd satin belt with a bow at the front, a skirt fitted down to the hips then gathered and longer at the back, as well as multiple tulle flounces mounted on an organza petticoat. The embroidery is done by Lesage, with the pleating by Lognon.
The movie will be presented in competition at Venice Film Festival on Friday, September 3rd.
