Thanks, Boris, and I didn't think she ever wore a metallic dress, either. They're taking artistic license as usual and I hope this will have good results.

Just my opinion, but I wonder why they didn't try to get the jewelry somewhat replicated.

Well she hopefully will get the character and spirit of Diana right because she does not look at all like Diana. Diana's wardrobe and jewels are so well known, why indeed did the film not try to replicate her jewels?

I don't see any similarities between Diana and this actress. In the DM article was a pic of Watts at a walkabout - you can say a lot about Diana and not all is positive, but at least she never looked so fake as this actress. It was utmost convincing that Diana was delighted to meet and greet people and I don't see this in the shot for the film at all.

The steady stream of promotional leaks continues during the filming of "Diana" (originally titled "Caught In Flight" but recently renamed).
Here's the latest [8 August]...

If I saw a pic of this actress without being told that she is impersonating Diana, I'd never think of any connection to the late Diana myself.

The last time I saw Naomi in a film was The Ring.. She has aged a bit and looks older than Diana in these photos.

Naomi looks older because she is older.
Diana was 36 at the time of her death; Naomi is 44. Not a dramatic difference, but still.

I know she's older... But Hollywood films have been known to make actors look older and younger from what they really are; thanks to make up, hair, and prosthetics. The make up and wigs the costumers and artists are putting on Naomi has aged her. She doesn't look like she's in her 30s and she looks older than her real age in some of these photos imo. Naomi is still a young and a very pretty woman. I don't think 40s should be considered old. Look at Halle Berry she's 45 and still looks like a 30 year old.

Naomi Watts's startling grasp of history and historical timelines is a revelation.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2340353/Naomi-Watts-dazzles-Princess-Diana-biopic-film-royal-icons-life.html

First look: Naomi Watts dazzles as Princess Diana in biopic film of the royal icon's life

selective quotes

"...it is suggested the film won't hold back...as it follows the last few months of [Diana's] life.

The film-makers behind the movie Diana...insisted the film is not ‘sensationalism or titillation’.
'We’re here to tell a love story and it’s very tragic.'
'There’s nothing sordid about the story we tell in the film.’
‘We’re not here for sensationalism or titillation.'
'She was distraught sometimes, and very hurt, but not unhinged.‘

The film is...not being called a biopic.
‘It’s more a fictionalised story based on fact’

Naomi Watts told the Daily Mail:
‘I did struggle with the idea of doing it'
'it’s a story that had to be told'
'It’s a piece of history'
'it’s a little fresher perhaps than a film about Henry VII’."

.The film will have its public premiere in London on September 5.

Well, I have to say that I am not happy about people trying to cash in on Princess Diana´s fame by making a film or writing (another!) book about her,but nevertheless I was curious and looked at the first pictures of Naomi as Diana and watched the "Diana" trailer on youtube...
I must say that I did not really see much resemblance of Diana in Naomi Watts, her face looks very different to me. To be fair we should say that Naomi Watts is a beautiful & talented actress, I have seen her in many films where she delivered a great performance.
I just don´t think that any actress could do justice to portraying Diana in a natural,normal way and also show the same emotions that the Princess of Wales did.
At least Naomi Watts is a smart actress who has made some good films in the past,I am sure that she has tried to give a good performance.
