[Diana] More on the filming in a stunning blue gown ....

The likeness is electric! Naomi Watts emulates another iconic Princess Diana outfit as she recreates Sydney blue dress look

13 July 2012

She's already stunned after she was spotted giving a first glimpse of her Princess Diana role earlier this week.

And now fans are set to be even more stunned as more pictures of Naomi Watts have been revealed as she continues filming the biopic.

The actress has been shooting scenes for the Diana movie and has now given off an electric blue frock as she emulated one of Diana's iconic Versace looks in a blue gown wore in Sydney in 1996.

Watts could almost be mistaken for Prince Charles' late former wife as she was seen walking along a red carpet in the scene.

Naomi threw herself into the role yet again as she sported blonde cropped hair.

She was acting out scenes as if she were at the Chang Institute Down Under, where Diana famously visited for a dinner dance the year before her untimely death.

Although Watts was shooting the scenes in Croatia as she continues to take on the coveted role, it was only a few days ago that she stunned by recreating a very poignant image of Diana.

It is one of the most iconic pictures of the Princess - a solitary figure on a luxury yacht, gazing out to sea.

The image, taken just a week before her death, is a lasting and instantly recognisable shot which was recreated by Naomi Watts.

The actress filmed a scene which portrays Diana's holiday aboard Mohamed Al Fayed's yacht, which was moored in Portofino when the image was captured in August 1997.

Wearing an identical pale blue swimsuit created by designer Melissa Odabash and with her blonde hair styled in that famous crop, Watts bears a striking resemblance to the late royal.

A representative for Odabash - whose swimwear is a favourite with celebrities such as Cheryl Cole and Kelly Brook, told Mail Online that the designer created all the bathing suits for the film to her own designs.

The 43-year-old star sat at the very edge of the diving board on the boat, and reclined on her back, soaking up the sun.

During a break in filming, an aide rushed to protect the fair actress from sunburn as she chatted with a crewmember.

A few days ago, Naomi was filming scenes with Cas Anvar, who portrays Dian's lover Dodi Al Fayed.

The pair embraced on the deck of the boat as they shot the intimate scenes.

Diana and Dodi holidayed for nine days aboard his father's boat Jonikal before their fateful trip to Paris.

Watts has said she is ‘terrified’ of playing such an icon on film. The movie from German director Oliver Hirschbiegel was called Caught In Flight, before being changed to simply Diana.

The film will follow the last two years of Diana's life before her death and focus on her relationship with heart surgeon Dr Hasnat Khan who is being portrayed by Lost star Naveen Andrews.

But it will also look at her time with Dodi, who she was with at the time she died and the movie will include her death, aged 36, in a car in a Paris tunnel in 1997 with the Egyptian playboy.

I think she is reincarnating Diana. No one can do it better than Naomi Watts.

Uncanny Diana. A big role and an international attraction. Good luck Naomi!
