This Photo Of Kristen Stewart As Princess Diana Has Me Double-Taking Hard

Someone grab my glasses.

Now, when Kristen Stewart was first announced as Princess Diana in the upcoming movie Spencer, there were some naysayers!

Heck, even I was a tad skeptical, and I love K-Stew.

The movie covers the moments when Princess Di realized her marriage to Charles was over, during Christmas weekend in the early '90s.

Well, we've just been given our first look at Kristen as Diana, and, my God, I am flabbergasted.

For context, here's the actual Diana on Christmas Day:

Director Pablo Larraín previously told Deadline, “Kristen is one of the great actors around today. To do this well, you need something very important in film, which is mystery. Kristen can be many things, and she can be very mysterious and very fragile and ultimately very strong as well, which is what we need. The combination of those elements made me think of her.”
