We’ve been following Joey King‘s style for a while, but the true coup de foudre struck us when we saw her attending the UK Gala Screening of “Bullet Train” at Cineworld Leicester Square on July 20, 2022 in London, England.
King–in full villain mode–wore a Marc Jacobs light pastel blue backless ensemble complete with red check long skirt from the Fall 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection, paired with Paula Rowan ‘Montserrat‘ 16bt Women’s Opera long black leather gloves.
She also wore a pair of black Le Silla ‘Miranda’ knee-high boots and accessorized everything with Bondeye earrings.
Matching the grungy vibe of the outfit, makeup artist Polly Osmond evened out Joey‘s skin tone, then applying a soft touch of blush. The eyes were intensified thanks to multiple individual lashes on top and bottom, coated with abundant mascara–to finish everything off, a red lipstick that matched the tone of the skirt.
Here are all the products used, slightly edited for clarity:
– Trinny – BFF De-Stress Serum Foundation in ‘Jemima‘;
– MAC Cosmetics – Blot Powder (no shade specified);
– Ardell – Individual Lashes on the top and bottom (no style specified);
– Nars – Climax Extreme Mascara;
– Chanel – (no product specified);
– MAC Cosmetics – ‘Chicory‘ Lip Liner and a swish of ‘Marrakesh‘ lipstick.
Joey‘s hair evoked the structure of the dress.
Hairstylist Dimitris Giannetos created finger waves on the top of the head, leaving the hair free to move from behind the ears to the ends.
This was an interesting outfit that one barely sees on the red carpet. In general, women tend to dress sexier, but equating it to showing more skin. In this case, the slight side boob and the paleness of her bare skin on the back had the same sultry effect and maybe it’s her eyes, maybe it’s her aura, but Joey owned the night that day.
Her friend and stylist Jared Eng is proving several points here.
We’ll keep on watching.
