Anya Taylor-Joy was an out of time beauty for the premiere of Emma. at the DGA Theater on February 18, 2020 in Los Angeles, California.
The beauty wore a 2002 Bob Mackie pearl detailed, empire-waisted wedding gown from her stylist’s personal archive capturing the Regency Period‘s sense of grandeur and elegance, which during an interview for Vogue.cz he described as his favorite look so far: “That dress is from my personal archive. I bought it at auction a few months ago. That was the only dress she tried on for the premiere. We had a rail of dresses and that was, literally, the first one she tried and when she put it on, everyone got goosebumps. And she was like, ‘there is no other dress.’”
Makeup artist Georgie Eisdell detailed in this post all the Chantecaille products she used on Anya‘s face; according to the beauty brand’s Instagram, the makeup artist explained her choice: “I wanted Anya’s look to be really romantic, but a little sexy too. She has a dreamy face, so we went for a soft smokey eye, gorgeous glowy skin and a natural nude glossy lip.”
