The Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki, who played Lady D in the crowning moment of her life (also giving us the iconic fashion moment of the revenge dress, a dress that is now up for auction), she walked the red carpet at the premiere held this December 5th in London with a wonderful Dior Haute Couture dress. Created by creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, the dress looks like a long white georgette cape, and was expertly embroidered in the Dior ateliers with micro-sequins and micro-pearls. The look was then enhanced by the choice of jewels, Dior Couture in turn: a white gold earring and earcuff with diamonds, as well as rings in white gold, rose gold and diamonds. Like a real Spencer, only in another space of time.

Archive photographs in hand, Elizabeth Debicki’s look can only immediately recall the wonderful one-shoulder dress that the then Princess of Wales wore to the gala dinner at the National Gallery in Washington DC on November 11, 1985. Made of chiffon, that dress created for Diana by the Japanese designer Hachi was itself embroidered with great skill, with meticulous pearls and precious crystals. She, by rights, is an authentic and true Spencer.
