Even Hollywood stars can’t get enough of Princess Diana’s style.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus revealed her love for the late royal’s iconic wedding dress when she appeared on yesterday’s episode of ‘Live with Kelly and Mark’, sharing that her own wedding dress was inspired by Princess.

The “Seinfeld” actress, 62, has been married to her actor and filmmaker husband, Brad Hall, 65, since 1987.

“Look at that wedding dress!” said Louis-Dreyfus as a photo of the couple flashed on the screen.

In the photo, the ‘Veep’ star beams as she wears a white puff-sleeved ball gown that bears a strong resemblance to the one Princess Diana wore for her July 1981 royal wedding to Prince Charles (now the King Charles III).

The actress chatted with Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos on yesterday’s episode of “Live with Kelly and Mark.”

“You’ll see I modeled my dress after Princess Diana,” Louis-Dreyfus – who wore a summery teal and orange maxi on the show – laughed.

“The era,” added Ripa, the “New Adventures of Old Christine” actress agreeing, “This is the era.”

“It’s a beautiful wedding photo,” the morning show host added.

It’s no surprise that Louis-Dreyfus chose a Diana-style dress for his nuptials, as copies flooded bridal shops around the world after the princess’ glamorous ceremony in 1981.

Along with her princess-inspired wedding dress, Louis-Dreyfus also opened up about her podcast, “Wiser Than Me,” telling Ripa and Consuelos that she interviews successful older women to “glean their wisdom.”

One such woman is Diane von Furstenberg, 76, who told the actress in a recent episode that she finds “strength” in swimsuit selfies.

It turns out that along with Diana, Louis-Dreyfus was also inspired by the legendary fashion designer’s famous wrap dress, calling it “the first kind of fashionable thing I wore that made me feeling like ‘oh, I don’t care about my body so much.'”
