After following Anya Taylor-Joy‘s press tour for the movie “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga“, I was determined to write about its Australian stop because the outfit she wore truly stroke my heart, metaphorically and literally.

For the event, the blonde actress donned a vintage Paco Rabanne metallic chain-linked minidress, featuring dozens of individual spears splaying out from the sides, from the Spring-Summer 1996 Haute Couture collection.

She paired the ensemble with gold Aquazzura So Nude Plexi 85 sandals with a transparent PVC strap and her dear engagement ring.

During a video interview for the Sydney Morning Herald, Anya revealed that she wanted to wear something “akin to armor” citing the late designer’s ability to both shield and reveal with his dresses, which felt like “the right move” for the red carpet.

Taylor-Joy‘s makeup was courtesy of Georgie Eisdell, who applied a bronze eyeshadow on the actress’ lids, which was blended into a soft smokey eye. Her signature black eyeliner with defined lashes and a nude pout sealed the deal.

To secure the Paco Rabanne headpiece, Gregory Russell styled the blonde stunner’s hair in a sleek flat knot, barely visible through the garment.

When it came to the nails, Miss Betty Rose, an Australian nail artist, opted for press-on claw-like nails that were painted with a light pink nail polish by OPI that almost matched the “Amsterdam” actress’ skin tone.

Anya was styled once again by Ryan Hastings, someone who you would call when your fashion fantasies seem bigger than reality. The stylist has the power to move mountains for his clients and with the actress there’s always an exchange of ideas that go far beyond the transactional nature of their collaboration.

The “Dune: Part Two” actress has the emotional complexity and grace that is required to wear Paco Rabanne‘s masterpieces without overpowering them and this is something I commend her for, because I know that she respects the designer’s craft and the clothes’ cultural relevance.


Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is a 2024 Australian post-apocalyptic action film directed and produced by George Miller, who wrote the screenplay with Nico Lathouris.

It is the fifth installment in the Mad Max franchise, serving as both a prequel and spin-off to Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), and focuses on the Fury Road character Imperator Furiosa.

The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy as a younger versions of Furiosa, originally portrayed by Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth as Dementus, the warlord leader of the Biker Horde, which abducted Furiosa.
