One of the most famous women of her time, the late Diana, Princess of Wales captured many hearts around the globe before she was taken from the world too early losing her life in a tragic car accident. The late Diana Spencer captured the imaginations of many. Marrying into the British Royal Family, Diana was famed for her beauty and love life, as well as her humanitarian work.
Australian actress Naomi Watts has taken up the challenge to portray Diana in the new, much anticipated film based on the last two years of Diana’s life directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel and produced by Award winning British company Ecosse Films.
Chopard, one of the world’s top jewellers and watchmakers is proud to announce an exclusive collaboration with Diana the movie. For many years, Chopard has been the regular red carpet choice for stars looking to standout from the crowd. Chopard has carefully selected a range of jewels from its collections, based on what they thought Diana would have chosen, which were worn by Naomi Watts in the movie.
Caroline Scheufele, Chopard’s Co-President and Artistic Director said “When I received the offer to work on the film Diana I was thrilled because, to me, she was a person blessed with extraordinary charisma and great elegance, both in her personality and her style. After having worked on the film Nine in 2009, this new partnership was exciting, even more so because Naomi Watts is a fantastic actress.”
Julian Day, the film’s costume designer says “from the first reading of the Diana script, I realised that I was going to need magnificent jewellery. When the opportunity arose to work with Chopard, I knew that this was going to be possible. Their help has been invaluable.”
To celebrate the film’s premiere, Naomi Watts chose to accessorise her stunning Versace dress with a pair of unique feather shaped earrings from Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie collection featuring 2 sapphires of 7 carats each and diamonds, as well as a bracelet featuring fancy-cut diamonds.
Diana will be in cinemas around Australia on 10 October 2013.
