Anya Taylor-Joy Put the Most Elegant Spin on the Naked Dress at the Critics Choice Awards

The Menu actor spiced up a classic silhouette with a lot of diamonds.

I thought I was over the red carpet’s ubiquitous sheer dress trend until I saw it on Anya Taylor-Joy at the Critics Choice Awards

The actor wore an embellished Dior frock in a suggestive nude hue with simple spaghetti straps and a sheer A-line skirt over nude briefs. The result is both a fresh take on the see-through trend and a modern twist on the fashion house’s classic New Look silhouette. Even Taylor-Joy’s upswept hair, a softer version of a beehive styled by Gregory Russell, is giving me “principal ballerina” vibes.


Taylor-Joy finished off her sultry look with over 20 carats of Tiffany & Co. diamonds—including a magnificent heart-shaped pendant that would make Holly Golightly blush—crystal sandals, and a striking smoky eye.

Bringing vintage styles to chic new heights has become a pattern with Taylor-Joy’s red-carpet looks. I’m thinking of the black lace crinoline she paired with a sleek high pony at the New York City premiere of The Menu and her 19th-century eyelet hoop skirt worn to the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards, both in November.

You’d never know that red-carpet fashion didn’t always come naturally to Anya Taylor-Joy. “In terms of the red carpet, it was something that was rather frightening to me until I realized that that was another form of performance art,” the actor told Gotham in November 2022. “So now I love clothes. I love fashion. And with this job, you kind of have to take an interest in taking care of your face because it’s your job. So I feel lucky that I’ve been able to do that more recently.”
