Season 4 of The Crown is about to drop on Netflix. In a normal year this week we would have seen the cast gather in London for a gala premiere for the next season. I am devastated that for most of the casts final turn as their characters, some who will only be in this season, and some who are making their series debut. While this cast might not have the biggest names in red carpet fashion amongst it’s ranks I definitely feel like they had the potential to make for a really great red carpet. The wishes you are going to see below are what I would have loved to see these ladies wear had the event actually taken place. This season will be Olivia Colman’s second and final turn as Queen Elizabeth II. We really started to get to know Olivia early last year as she campaigned for an Oscar. She mostly wore English designers. When it comes to fashion I, unlike most, loved the custom Stella McCartney gown she wore for the Oscars earlier this year. Now what I would have liked to see her wear for this premiere isn’t as dramatic but packing in glamour. I would love to see Olivia wearing this ice blue Erdem Resort 2021 ‘Kenley’ sequin embellished caped gown. I have pictured Olivia wearing this gown since I first flipped through this collection lookbook earlier this year. I feel like it is the simple regal glamour that works so well for Olivia and this gown delivers that. A short pixie, smokey eyes, rose pink lips, a dusk blue glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ rectangle clutch, a pair of platinum glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Emily 100’ crisscross stiletto peep toe sandals, and simple princess cut white diamond David Morris drop earrings would definitely make this a dazzling glamour moment for Olivia. This season will finally see Princess Diana join the cast. Emma Corrin has been tasked with bringing the iconic royal to life on the screen and I have high expectations. This is the only season that Emma will be a part of The Crown. I would have loved to see what she would bring to life on the red carpet as she is portraying a fashion icon. Instead of going for something off the current runways I instead went into the vintage archives of online vintage retailer Shrimpton Couture. I decided to pick this major black 1961 Norman Hartnell Haute Couture rhinestone detailed bubble hem gown which features an off the shoulder neckline. Hartnell was the couturier to Queen Elizabeth II and this gown is a perfect example of his work. I feel like Emma would definitely been able to bring this gown out of the archives and to life on a red carpet. Style it with a sleek updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a black satin Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch which features a crystal embellished bow clasp, a pair of black suede Miu Miu jeweled strap chunky heel platform sandals, and vintage art deco white diamond Cartier drop earrings to really make sure this look oozes glamour from head to toe. Gillian Anderson is also joining the cast of The Crown this season as the “iron lady” Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. While she isn’t exactly known for her red carpet looks I tend to think that Gillian can deliver some superb moments. I would have loved to see her bring the color factor to this red carpet wearing this bright yellow Roland Mouret ‘Adrienne’ strapless gown which perfectly meshes structure and draping. As I started planning this set of wishes I knew immediately that I wanted Roland Mouret for Gillian. This gown is the epitome of the Roland Mouret style and I feel that is perfect for this red carpet. I could see Gillian giving this gown the moment it deserves styling it with a teased updo, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a multi-tone gold crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture ‘Smooth Rectangle Bling Mix’ clutch, simple light gold Malone Souliers ‘Miranda 125’ platform ankle strap sandals, and a pair of DAZZLING white and yellow diamond David Morris chandelier earrings. Rounding out this set of wishes is a major glamour moment I would like to see from Erin Doherty. The actress made me take notice of her at last years premiere of Season 3 of The Crown where she was wearing Dolce & Gabbana. Since then we’ve seen her wearing Valentino and Giambattista Valli. We’ve yet to see her wear couture on the red carpet and I was hoping for this this year at the premiere of the shows 4th season. I would have absolutely adored seeing Erin wearing this aqua blue Georges Hobeika Spring 2020 Couture ensemble which features a beaded crop top with 3/4 length sleeves and a ruffled high waisted tulle a-line skirt. It is a bit of 60’s flair in the most modern way possible and I ADORE the color. I feel like it is the perfect balance of fun, flirtatiousness, and glamour for Erin. I would have pulled this look together with a sleek updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, silver glitter and PVC Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Karlie’ crystal studded pointed toe t-strap pumps, and a pair of dazzling white diamond Anabela Chan chandelier earrings.
Season 4 of The Crown will start streaming on Netflix on Sunday November 15, 2020.
