Elizabeth takes the plunge at costume awards

- By Laura Fox

HER stint as Princess Diana in The Crown may have ended. But Elizabeth Debicki still looked every bit as elegant as her screen character in a plunging red satin gown at an awards ceremony this week.

The Australian actress, 32, showed off her svelte physique in the dress, which featured chunky gold chain straps and a flowing skirt.

She rubbed shoulders with the likes of Cate Blanchett on the red carpet at the Costume Designers Guild Awards.

Ms Blanchett, 53, turned heads in a lavishly embellishe­d black jacket with exaggerate­d shoulders over a ruffled beige polka-dot top.

Ms Debicki was reunited with Baz Luhrmann, director of 2013’s The Great Gatsby, which marked her first breakout role in the US.

Backstage she chatted with Austin Butler, the star of Luhrmann’s latest film Elvis, and hot favourite to win best actor at this month’s Oscars.

The Crown star took to the stage in Los Angeles to present the award for excellence in sci-fi/fantasy film, which went to Shirley Kurata for her work on Everything Everywhere All At Once – beating efforts from Avatar: The Way of Water and Hocus Pocus 2.

The statue for excellence in period film went to Catherine Martin of Elvis, while Colleen Atwood and Mark Sutherland won the excellence in contempora­ry television award for Netflix’s Wednesday.

Oscar-winning costume designer Deborah L Scott, who worked on Titanic and Avatar: The Way of Water, was honoured with the career achievemen­t award.
