Naomi Watts Sports Classic ‘Do in First Look at Her ‘Diana’

Naomi Watts in Diana

In celebration for its newly-acquired U.S. distribution rights, the first official look at Naomi Watts as Princess Diana in Oliver Hirschbiegel‘s biopic, Diana (previously known as Caught in Flight), has just hit the web. And…she looks suitably blond and hair-helmeted! She also looks dead serious, and considering the film follows the end of the princess’ life and her love affair with Dr. Hasnat Khan, such calm focus is to be expected. It’s not the first time Watts has changed up her look to play a famous blonde – remember that “first look” at her as Marilyn Monroe from (seemingly) a million years ago? Yeah, still holding out on that one, Andrew Dominik.

Diana will be released in time for Oscar season, so get ready to see plenty more of those hair wings in the coming months. [Deadline Hollywood, via /Film]
