Anya Taylor-Joy can always be counted on to dazzle on the red carpet. The Last Night in Soho actress attended the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) on Feb. 19 in a bold and daring look.

Taylor-Joy wore a velvet champagne-colored mini dress with bow detailing on the front and corset stitching on the back from Schiaparelli’s spring-summer 2023 haute couture collection. The look, styled by Ryan Hastings, included a large and dramatic cloak of the same color and material, which the actress draped above her head and over her shoulders. Taylor-Joy also accessorized with strappy gold heels and a gorgeous looped necklace from Tiffany & Co.

Hairstylist Gregory Russell coaxed the star’s platinum locks into soft waves, while makeup artist Valeria Ferreira opted for fresh-looking skin, sparkly eyeshadow to compliment Taylor-Joy’s dress and a nude lip. The glam was perfectly coordinated down to the actress’s golden-hued manicure.
