Kristen Stewart’s much-awaited film on Princess Diana, titled Spencer, released its first official poster recently. In it, Stewart is seen hiding her face in an embellished beige off-shoulder gown.

A Vogue Paris report shared that the dress by Chanel is a recreation of a Spring/Summer 1988 Haute Couture show gown. It is an evening gown in organza, featuring gold and silver sequins on the bodice that form fine floral branches.

The gown’s neckline is adorned with delicately pleated tulle flounce, highlighted with sequins and a satin band, according to the outlet. A satin bow also encircles the dress on the front while the skirt, fitted to the hip, unfolds into thousands of ruffles and gathers.
