“The Emanuels, who designed the original, gave us the patterns, and then it was made for me,” Corrin explained to British Vogue.
She added that she needed a team of stylists to help her with the dress. “We were filming the scene when you first see her in the wedding dress – I think it was Lancaster House in London – and I had a team of about 10 people helping me put it on, because it’s massive.”
Corrin is portraying Princess Diana in season four of the series and revealed that this is probably the most iconic piece of clothing she will wear.
“I walked out, and everyone went completely silent. More than anything else I wear in the series, it’s so … It’s her,” she said.
The actress also said that by playing Princess Diana, she feels like she got to know her more intimately than most people would.
“I feel I’ve got to know Diana like you would a friend. I know that sounds really weird, but I get a great sense of companionship from her. I suppose, over time, you kind of start to patch together a sense of empathy and a sense of understanding. I love figuring people out,” told the publication.
