Elizabeth Debicki first caught fire with her breakthrough performance as the La Garçonne golf icon Jordan Baker from The Great Gatsby. Later, she added roles in Tenet, Windows, and The Night Manager to her repertoire of performances that solidified her as a force in Hollywood to be reckoned with. But it was her portrayal as Princess Diana in season five of The Crown that took the world by storm with the Australian actress’ stark resemblance to the late princess that captured her recluse disposition, shy tone, and unparalleled elegance.
One thing that resonates profoundly with Debicki is her unwavering grace, a quality she carried with her beyond her portrayal of Princess Diana. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Debicki emerged as the undeniable choice as Dior Joaillerie’s brand ambassador, gracing the front row seats of Dior’s Fall 2023 Haute Couture presentation glammed up in Dior Beauty, with her inherent sense of sophistication that embodies the very essence of the Maison.
CR Fashion Book: What is the inspiration behind your look today?
Elizabeth Debicki: My glorious stylist Elizabeth Saltzman and the team from Dior and myself just really loved the idea of creating a classic Dior look that felt fresh and modern. The silhouette to me feels elegant and fun and I love that there is a little drama with the fascinator. I wanted it to live in that elusive place of feeling totally myself and also telling a story.
CR: Were there any moments from the show that stood out to you?
ED: The Dior couture show is always such a joy. It is so immersive, like theatre. I adored the structure and the grace of the caped pieces. Everything about the styling of the show was pure goddess energy. Their feet were firmly planted on the ground in their Grecian sandals and their simple structured plaits pulled to the back. I loved! Maria Grazia’s design to me is always so fiercely feminine. A really divine combination of fragility and nobility. The beaded dresses were incredible. [More at Source]
