The Crown Season 4 Costume Design was Generally Taken From Real-life Sketches and Drawings from Newspapers Touching Upon the Royal Style
To resemble the outfits of the previous century, the designers chose vintage fabrics for clothes of the Prince and the Princess. To make the spectator notice the contrast of style between the ordinary people and them both, outfits were dyed in more vibrant colors which blows the dim away from retro look.
The first meeting of the couple in the movie is a bit different from where and whennit happened in real life. By that time Diana was 16 and Charles was 29. He was dating Diana’s sister – Camilla. Diana here has a tree-resembling outfit, which she wears at the start of the plot for her summer play.
Next, Charles and Diana meet in the Crown by the time the Prince had lost his mentor and had no mood. Diana greets him in the street while he is in a car. She has a yellow blouse on, with floral prints. The latter reminds of Diana’s clothes worn at a polo match in Windsor Great Park in 1981. The youthful set creates a bit of positive aura which helps Charles distract for some minutes.
The season’s next series symbolize “Sloane Square” clothings of that time in Princess Diana’s style. This is a conservative look that the princess appeared with in the late 70s/early 80s. Vests, sweathers, gowns and accessoires around the neck are the major choices.
Green is the color of dresses of Diana in the Crown Season 4’s next events. Her first date with Charles symbolizes a start of new life in her green gown. Recreation of style such as in her Balmoral sweater and engagement blue dress occurs also in choosing the similar wedding gown as was in real life. Puffy sleeves and the long train are the main distinctive parts of the wedding dress.
Australia tour after their wedding was a time when Diana chose nearly 200 dresses to travel with, while in the series only 17 are demonstrated.
Further in “the Crown” plot the focus of Princess Diana style is on pink and red sets. However the bond in the relationship gradually starts to fade as the attention his wife gets is not the favourite thing of Charles. At this point, we see Diana in slimmer dresses. In real life, the reason is something different from “the Crown”. Diana saw that they do not look good enough together in photos – that was the main reason for turning cold towards each other.
The final style is a slick black dress that shows the elegance of Diana and resembles her real choices of the 90s – a symbol of maturity too. However, she still used to wear colourful sets too, kind of trying to hide the negativity of her life.
