As the culture rebounds from an extended season of quiet luxury, we’re seeing more and more logomania and loud colors on red carpets and in the streets. But Anya Taylor-Joy is issuing an ever-present reminder just because an outfit is neutral, doesn’t mean it’s boring.
Last night Taylor-Joy joined the likes of Rachel Zegler, Alexandra Daddario, Brie Larson, and more at a Dior dinner in Beverly Hills, wearing a monochromatic look that will surely launch a thousand Pinterest boards.
The actor wore light taupe—a vexing color sitting somewhere between nude, gray, and beige that it may as well be crowned the true neutral. On top, she opted for a sheer, sparkly off-the-shoulder corset top. Between the top’s tie sleeves, delicate structure, and artful draping (plus the added oomph of a sparkle), Taylor-Joy is making a very solid case for the understated hue. In a slightly unexpected pairing, she wore a sleek pair of trousers in the same color, showing off a gold strappy sandal.
Taylor-Joy added a vampy red lip, bringing the outfit from lowkey to evening-wear. Matching her lipstick was a pedicure in the same sultry red. For another subtle pop of color, she opted for cobalt ombre nails.
Et voilà: the Anya Taylor-Joy masterclass in neutrals is complete. No need to submit to boring beige when you have exciting fabrics, unexpected pairings, and colorful details on your side.
