British-Australian actress Naomi Watts is set to play the late Lady Diana Spencer in the new biopic, Diana, from Ecosse films.
For her role, Naomi transformed herself to become a living doppelganger of the famous fashion and philantrophy icon.
She chopped her hair into a nice wavy bob— a signature look of Diana's— and wore chic clothes and accessories on set to resemble the stylish air of her character.
In most of her scenes, Naomi is seen wearing chic basics—crisp blouses, trousers, and comfortable leather moccasins—and toting a leather bag.
Italian fashion label Tod's provided the shoes and bags used by Naomi for the movie, which will open worldwide very soon.
The film directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel tells the untold story of the former English princess' last two years in life, and how she managed her secret love affair with a Pakistani heart surgeon named Hasnat Khan, played by former Lost star Naveen Andrews.
TIMELESS ICON. Aside from supporting the new movie about Diana, the brand also recently teamed up with Italian publishing house Electa for the release of the book Timeless Icon, a collection of photographs showing Diana as a symbol of style, grace, and generosity.
Indeed, the former royal won the hearts of many, not because of her stature, but because of what she has done for others.
She has inspired many women to stand up for themselves, for a woman to become strong and powerful without forgetting her femininity, and to carry herself gracefully and stylishly.
She also used her celebrity status to support many causes, especially those that helped hungry and sick children and their families.
Emulating Diana's generosity, sales from the book will go to Clic Sargeant, a leading charity organization that supports cancer-stricken children.
