Princess Diana was a fashion icon way ahead of her time and these looks are proof

If you’ve already jumped onto the bandwagon of binge-watching The Crown Season 4 then chances are that you’ve noticed one too many sartorial similarities. Case in point—newcomer Emma Corrin who plays the role of Princess Diana in the popular series seems very much like Diana’s doppelgänger. Corrin makes a strong case for the character as all her recreated looks are hands down impressive.

And what’s not to love? Off-duty, the humanitarian was seen acing cycling shorts paired with sweatshirts while elements like Dior bags, Chanel tweed coats and Versace evening gowns paved its way into her covetable wardrobe. And let’s not forget her iconic taffeta-silk wedding gown that created major ripples in fashion.
