Claire Foy and Matt Smith walked the red carpet together at the premiere for new the Netflix show The Crown.


Gold was the theme of the evening, as Foy dazzled in a hot pink dress adorned with a fabric gold leaf pattern with matching gold metallic satin heels. The sophisticated dress was complete with a bardot-style neckline to show off her shoulders, as well as keeping her golden hair in a chignon bun. Diamond stud earrings and pink-red lipstick completed the red carpet look.

The Crown has been described as the most expensive series ever made to date, just beating out the streaming service’s own recent show The Get Down. The show follows a young Queen Elizabeth II (Foy) and Prince Philip (Smith) at the beginning of the former’s reign in the 1950s, and offers an inside view of the lives of the royals.

On the red carpet, Foy explained that she had some difficulty seeing the royal family as humans, but had a moment when filming the scene for her coronation.

“I’d worn it in several scenes before [the Coronation]. In that moment, I felt very ‘at one with God’. Not me, but I suddenly went ‘oh I see’,” Foy describes. “She’s changed at the point, she’s no longer just a woman, she’s sort of, I hate to say it, ‘God’s chosen person on Earth’ – that’s what she thinks anyway. So it changes her, but for me, it wasn’t like I suddenly realized I should be wearing a crown in real life.”

All episodes of the ten-part series will be available on Netflix on Nov. 4.
