Anya Taylor-Joy's Golden Globes look has crystallised her reputation as the queen of transformation. The 24-year-old is known as a style chameleon on screen, playing a demure Emma one minute and a fashion-forward, flame-haired chess prodigy (The Queen's Gambit) the next.
It was a successful night for Anya, who was named Best Actress in a Television Motion Picture for her role as Beth Harmon in Netflix's The Queen's Gambit. It was Anya's first Golden Globe award and, more impressively, the first for a Latina actress in that category.
The English-Argentine actress beat some particularly stiff competition, too, namely Nicole Kidman (The Undoing), Cate Blanchett (Mrs America), Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People), and Shira Haas (Unorthodox).
Decked in an emerald green Christian Dior couture gown and matching floor-sweeping cape, which reportedly took 300 hours to make, Anya looked every inch the Hollywood starlet.
Her makeup look was pure old Hollywood, with an emphasis on full, fluttery lashes and a bold red lip. But it was her waist-skimming icy platinum waves, worn in a deep side parting over one eye for dramatic effect, that stole the show. Indeed, it's a stark departure for the actress who once revealed that the one item she can't live without is a humble hair scrunchie.
Unsurprisingly, Anya's muse for the night was Veronica Lake—the actress who famously made the one-eye style a sensation in her breakout role in I Wanted Wings—a look she carried off with aplomb. Something tells us the ever-chic Beth Harmon would approve of the top-to-toe ensemble.
