The long-awaited fifth season of The crown has finally arrived on Netflix, along with an all-new cast to portray all the drama and scandals the royal family experienced during the ’90s.

While fans criticized the casting choices for the latest installment (sorry, but Dominic West is too hot to play Prince Charles), there has been widespread praise for Elizabeth Debicki’s performance as Princess Diana.

From the very first episode, Elizabeth channels the very essence of Diana, from her mannerisms to her emotional struggles and, of course, the love she feels for William and Harry.

This would not have been possible without the crown incredible wardrobe department, who were inspired by and recreated several of Diana’s most iconic outfits. So let’s take a closer look at what was depicted in the Netflix series versus what Diana wore in real life.


First, here’s Diana in a floral dress in the season 5 premiere as she prepares for a ‘second honeymoon’ with Charles. In real life, Diana wore a similar dress during her visit to Nigeria in 1990.


In the same episode, Diana is shown wearing an off-white blouse and skirt, with a matching belt. In real life, Diana wore a nearly identical outfit during a trip to Egypt in 1992.


Later on, we see Diana wearing a leopard-print swimsuit in The crownwhich was definitely inspired by this real-life outfit worn during a 1990 vacation on Necker Island.


At the Ghillies Ball at Balmoral, we see Diana in a white dress, pearls, and tartan sash, which is almost perfect for the outfit she wore to the real Ghillies Ball in 1991.


For a press appearance at a local hospital, Diana dons a red and black suit with gold buttons. In real life, Diana wore a very similar outfit while she toured a remodeling project in 1993.


If there was one thing Diana was known for, it was her sporty style, which usually consisted of an oversized sweater and biker shorts. The crown recreates this perfectly by including a Harvard sweatshirt worn by Diana in 1997.


Here is Diana with another floral dress on The crownwhich may have been inspired by a similar outfit he wore in 1991 while standing next to Barbara Bush, the wife of former US President George HW Bush.


In the third episode, Diana meets Mohamed and Dodi Al-Fayed at a polo match while wearing a lilac suit. In real life, Diana wore a suit of the same color when she visited the United States in 1997.


Perhaps the most iconic outfit Diana wears, both in real life and on The crown — is her revenge dress worn at the Serpentine Gallery in 1994. The costume department went to great lengths for this one, replicating both the shape of the dress and the jewelry.


For Prince William’s first day at Eton, Diana’s striking blue blazer and all-black outfit were recreated in The crown.


In the seventh episode, Diana visits her brother, Earl Spencer, wearing a red quilted jacket. In real life, Diana had a similar jacket, which she wore on a ski vacation in 1993.


There’s also a scene showing Diana in a stunning sequined dress, which looks nearly identical to the one Diana wore to a benefit dinner in 1996.


Diana wears several different outfits when she visits Hasnat Khan in the hospital, including this green number that Diana wore IRL in 1992 while in France.


There’s also this recreation of a green turtleneck and jacket combo the real Diana wore in 1993.


From Diana’s hair to makeup, outfit and mannerisms, The crown nailed his recreation of the Martin Bashir interview.


And finally, in one of Diana’s last appearances in The crown Season 5, we see her attend a Royal Gala performance of swan lake while wearing a blue dress. Around the same time in real life, Diana also wore a similar dress while she attended the ballet.


but it seems The crown he might also have been influenced by this beaded halter neck dress worn by Diana in 1995.
