Anya Taylor-Joy has a reputation for her show-stopping red carpet looks and she did not disappoint at the 2021 Emmys. The actress looked like Hollywood royalty in a satin floor-length Dior gown. Many crowned Taylor-Joy among the best dressed at this year’s Emmys.

The high-neck gown plunged in the back, perfect for Taylor-Joy’s signature over-the-shoulder pose. Stylist Paul Burgo then draped the Emmy-nominated actress with a yellow shawl, doubling as a train fit for royalty.

For accessories, Taylor-Joy emulated the saying “diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” The dress’s backless design showed off a string of Tiffany & Co. jewels. She and her glam team further elevated the look with earrings and rings. Anya then paid homage to The Queen’s Gambit with a yellow manicure by nail artist Kim Truong—her accent nails contained tiny chess pieces. Fans loved every last detail of the look.

The Emmy-nominee dressed to impress for the awards ceremony. She was nominated for Best Lead Actress in a Limited Series for Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit, while the series itself won Best Limited Series. Taylor-Joy portrayed young prodigy Beth Harmon on her journey to dominate the chess world. 

The 25-year-old expressed her gratitude on Instagram, stating, “What an absolute privilege to be able to celebrate The Queens Gambit last night at @televisionacad. To be able to hug and hold and laugh. I am (and will be) forever grateful that we got to go out with a bang, together.”

But the night didn’t stop there for Taylor-Joy. She attended the Emmys after-party in a vintage-style lingerie set also by Dior. The cream set complemented her glamorous red carpet gown, dawned in satin and complete with a matching mask.

After a night of regal moments, we can’t wait to see what Anya Taylor-Joy does next—both in fashion and film.
