Kristen Stewart puts on a leggy display in an incredibly chic tweed playsuit at Venice Film Festival


She portrays Diana, Princess of Wales, in the forthcoming movie Spencer. 

And Kristen Stewart appeared to be taking a leaf out of the late Royal’s book on Friday as she rocked a tweed outfit for day three of the Venice International Film Festival in Italy – yet went for own racy take on a typically demure style. 

However the actress, 31, who is known for her androgynous and versatile fashion sense, added a modern twist to the traditional fabric as her playsuit boasted extreme mini shorts, highlighting her long legs.

Her eagerly-awaited portrayal of Princess Diana will be played to audiences for the first time this week as Spencer premieres at the 78th Venice Film Festival. 

The first trailer was released last week, with Kristen’s take on the late Royal’s accent heard for the first time.

Set in 1991 and set for release on November 5, the short clip saw the Twilight star roaming the grounds of Sandringham Estate at Christmas time as her marriage to Prince Charles breaks down in the wake of divorce and infidelity rumours.

The film’s logline reads: ‘The marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has long since grown cold. Though rumours of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate.

‘There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. But this year, things will be profoundly different. Spencer is an imagining of what might have happened during those few fateful days.’

The script, written by English screenwriter Steven Knight, who has also written Peaky Blinders, follows the moments when Diana realises she needs to ‘veer from a path that puts her in-line to one day be Queen’.

Director Pablo Larraín explained that the drama will not delve into Diana’s tragic death, but instead focus on her relationship with her Royal husband and the love she has for children Prince William and Prince Harry.

The filmmaker said: ‘We decided to get into a story about identity, and around how a woman decides somehow, not to be the Queen…
