Naomi Watts will be making her debut as the late Princess Diana today as the much-awaited biopic hits cinemas tonight.
Delving into the last two years of Prince Harry and Prince William‘s mother’s life, ‘Diana‘ documents the Princess’ movements following her divorce from Prince Charles, including her secret love affair with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan and her relationship with Dodi Fayed.
The Australian actress recently revelead how she’s had to tread delicately whilst immortilizing the mum-of-two who died tragically 16 years ago, confessing to Manhatten magazine that portraying the nation’s sweetheart was one of the “hardest things” she’s ever had to do.
Naomi added: “I want to try to embody her and get the essence of her. Those things are really important to me.”
Donning diamonds to depict the late royal, it certainly looked like the 44-year-old nailed her appearance. Stepping out for the film’s premiere in London earlier this month, the leading lady stunned in a white figure-skimming gown featuring a halterneck similar to one of the Princess’ show-stopping gowns.
We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to see the recreation of Diana’s famous dress collection on the big screen!
