A retrospective of Anya Taylor-Joy’s most recent looks is in order.
The actress has been on a bout of red-carpet walks and press appearances for her newest film, The Menu. But it’s her outfits to promote the psychological thriller—a satire on foodie culture interspersed with truly delicious cinematic shots of gourmet prepared meals—that are mouthwatering.
Longtime fans of Taylor-Joy may already know that her red-carpet style tends to be just as eclectic as her IMDb credits, embodying the essence of her latest project or character. (Take her vintage Bob Mackie wedding gown, for example, during the premiere of Emma, a comedic adaptation of the Jane Austen novel; or maybe her regal Dior gown for the premiere of The Northman, an epic historical thriller.) Now, as The Menu‘s press tour is in full swing, the Hollywood starlet is once again proving her transformative style prowess.
Here are a few of our favorite standout looks from her run so far.
She kicked off festivities during the U.K. premiere of The Menu, stepping onto the red carpet in a bold cobalt blue corset dress from Alexander McQueen’s spring/summer 2023 collection. The dress included a ruffled asymmetrical hem and matching leather gloves.
Accepting the Actress award at the Harper’s BAZAAR UK Women of the Year Awards, the Dior ambassador opted for a delicate white lacy look from the brand’s spring 2023 runway. The ensemble consisted of a bralette and sheer hoop skirt.
During a panel conversation with her castmates, Taylor-Joy opted for a classic black slipdress, which she accessorized sparingly with silver rings and a bright red lip.
She once again opted for Dior for the New York premiere of The Menu. This time, Taylor-Joy looked like a gothic queen in a black lacy structured minidress, which came with matching laser-cut opera gloves.
That same day, she stepped out in yet another monochromatic look. Her head-to-toe red-hot outfit by Magda Butrym included a patent-leather trench coat and babydoll minidress. She finished it with matching tights and satin pumps by Christian Louboutin.
Keeping things classic during an outing in New York City, she wore a black halter-neck minidress from PATBO. The dress featured pearl-string straps and an open side panel strung with pearl-adorned gold rings.
Later, she changed into a flirtatious baby pink dress from Nensi Dojaka, paired with a nearly invisible pair of clear heels from Aquazzura.
Taylor-Joy looked pretty in pink while stepping out in a vintage coral-colored jacket and skirt set by Andre Courreges. She topped off the look with white Louboutin pumps and a dark red lip.
Later, during a guest appearance on The Tonight Show, the actress changed into a golden corset from Schiaparelli’s spring 2023 collection. The top included a thick black belt with an ornate gold buckle, which coordinated with her high-waisted black trousers and structural sky-high platforms with a golden toe cap.

Offline, she’s probably spending too much time on TikTok, rewatching Emma (the 2020 version, of course), or buying yet another corset.
