The Crown's Emma Corrin breaks with Golden Globes style tradition – see photo

The Crown actress was every inch the style icon

Emma Corrin has firmly established herself as a style icon since her meteoric rise to fame in The Crown. It came as no surprise, therefore, that the Princess Diana actress' 2021 Golden Globes look was every bit as iconic as her on-screen alter-ego's trailblazing sense of style.

The young actress, 25, broke with style conventions by donning a tailored beige suit and trainers for a remote photoshoot ahead of the virtual event.

Embracing the tomboy vibe, Emma - who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama - pulled her look together with a crisp blue shirt and a pair of statement cross earrings.

We imagine Emma has been taking style notes from the late Princess Diana and her royal rule-breaking love of wearing menswear.

Prince William and Harry's mother became synonymous with fashion risk-taking; a fan of boxy blazers, tuxedo suits and famously the first woman in the royal family to wear trousers to an evening event, Diana was the queen of androgynous style.

Princess Diana was also a fan of an androgynous look

But that wasn't all, since Emma later changed into a quirky Miu Miu creation. The actress channelled her inner Pierrot in a Miu Miu creation with a gorgeous ruffled collar – and took the look further thanks to intricate teardrop makeup. The rising star sported Twiggy-inspired, 60s mascara with a drawn-on tear under one eye, thanks to MUA Florrie White.

The 78th annual Golden Globes ceremony looks a little different this year. The awards will see Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting from opposite coasts. Tina will present live from the Rainbow Room in New York City while Amy will appear from the home of the Golden Globes at the Los Angeles Beverly Hilton.
