Anya Taylor-Joy in custom Dior at the Golden Globes: too much or just perfect?

Anya Taylor-Joy was nominated for Golden Globes for Emma and for The Queen’s Gambit. She won for The Queen’s Gambit! She’s really cute and supremely talented – it feels like she was flying under the radar for years, putting in good performances, but she was such a shape-shifter than people didn’t always give her credit for just how talented she is. But over the past year, Anya has really ARRIVED. Dior knows it too – she reps Dior fragrances, and Dior made her a custom look for her remote appearance at the Golden Globes. I love the rich green and the construction is perfect on this gown and caped coat. Anya also wore $1 million in Tiffany’s jewelry.

Rosamund Pike dressed up in this (terrible) Molly Goddard dress because she didn’t think she had a snowball’s chance in hell of winning for I Care A Lot. I mean, Rosamund never wins anything! But she won last night and she seemed quite pleased.

Nicola Coughlan in Molly Goddard as well. I feel like this is very Prom-y? Which isn’t a bad thing, necessarily. Man, Goddard’s dresses are very overworked though.

    I love Anya’s gown, but I hate her current hair. And imagine that dress with her hair from The Queen’s Gambit? That would be something.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      I came here to say I loved the hair and part of the full style! She just blooms outward as you go down.

    • Laura says:

      I came here to say the exact same thing! She’s beautiful, but the long blonde hair doesn’t work.

      • Fleur says:

        I was thinking the same!!! I love the dress, the makeup and the glamorous side part, but I don’t like the length. Looks like clip ins, very unnatural, and it doesn’t suit her face.

    • Mgsota says:

      I loved The Queen’s Gambit and I’m so happy she won! I love the green dress and the hair color is okay (I think she can pull off anything) but the hair is too heavy at the bottom!

      • Kathryn says:

        agree! She’s so pretty but is that her real hair or some kind of extensions? It looks beautiful but I’m so impressed if that’s all her hair considering she’s a natural brunette like me and that’s incredible lift with it looks like no damage. Speaking as a natural brunette who has been a fake blonde for 5+ years 🙂

    rosamund pike’s gown is brilliant and so much fun.

  4. Div says:

    I loved Anya’s look. Goodard’s dresses aren’t my thing, but I get the vibe.

  5. newmenow says:

    Excellent green dress, the over coat is a bit much. Makes me think of Xmas at the Opera in the 1960’s, interesting fabric and a good color on her tho.

    RP, sorry her dress reminds me of a bath scrunchy, hate the shoes, haircut is too severe.

    Heck No to the red eye shadow! Beautiful jewelry.

    • UptownGirl says:

      The red eyeshadow takes away from the entire outfit. She should have stayed away from the red.
      As for Pike, I adore her and she looks lovely and seems to have had fun which is something fashion should be for women.

  6. shabs says:

    Anya was great in the Queens Gambit, she’s been excellent in everything I’ve seen her in. I would have also been happy for Daisy Edgar-Jones to win for Normal People as I thought her performance was incredible.

    Those Goddard dresses are awful but I kind of love that Rosamund paired hers with Doc Marten style black boots. It’s makes the whole look more palatable and a bit more tongue in cheek.

  7. MellyMel says:

    Anya looked fantastic! Best look of the night easily.

    • dj says:

      Anya’s dress was perfection. A hard no for me for the Goddard dresses. They look like a nightgown of my mother’s (not so big obviously) that I used to play dress up in as a little girl. Red/pink eyeshadow I have yet to see on anyone that helps them to look better.

  8. Cee says:

    Anya is also the first latina to win that category, so congratulations to her!

    • Kath says:

      I love that she identifies herself as Argentine whenever asked

      • Cee says:

        Yeah, she really identifies with her father’s country.
        Rioplatense Spanish is her first language and she grew up here, surrounded by her argentine family. The fact she still retains her accent and fluency shows how much Spanish they speak amongst themselves. She even uses slang she picked up from her siblings and spending summers in Argentina, which is amazing.

      • Winechampion says:

        @Cee, what do you mean? What’s amazing? Using slang? She has a couple of different cultures and languages in her family, but I don’t think I understand how that’s “amazing“.

      • Cee says:

        It’s amazing because it shows she actually is connected to the country she identifies with, and proves she is actually bilingual, unlike other artists claiming a connection to a language they can hardly speak.
        Our slang is based on lunfardo, which is something very different, and evolves very fast. She left when she was 8. The only reason she uses “boludo” and “tipo”, slang that did not exist back when she still lived here, is amazing to me because it shows a connection many people lose once they move away and learn a new language. It happened to my own family. So much assimilation erases cultural and linguistic markers.

        It is particularly amazing because white latinas are usually erased, questioned and excluded. No one would call her latina unless they knew of her ethnicity/heritage.

  9. S808 says:

    LOVED. Easily the best look of the night. Ugh everything Luxury Law touches turn to gold.

  10. SarahCS says:

    Ok I have only just realised that it’s AnYa Taylor-Joy not AnNa. I’ve been reading it as Anna since we started talking about the Queens Gambit. I was about to comment that I must have missed a memo about stage name vs. real name or something.

  11. Miss Jupitero says:

    Rosamund Pike’s dress is perfect! And with black doc martens instead of the usual tired stillettos! Oh please let that become a trend again…..

    • lemonylips says:

      I also love that combination so much. It’s just like – let’s try to have some fun with all of this. Also I’m a fan of shoes like these – only kinds I get and I wear them all year round till they fall apart.

  12. Scal says:

    Rosamund looked great on the zoom call which I think was the point. Standing up on a red carpet not so much.

    I bet that was comfy to sit in and didn’t require her sitting just so or getting adjusted before being on camera. Some of the ladies had cuter dresses standing up but didn’t work in this format

  13. ItReallyIsYou,NotMe k8 says:

    My husband was scared s$%&less over I Care A Lot. I told him it was just a movie and safeguards must be in place. Then a friend who is a guardianship attorney told me that there was a huge scandal over a similar situation a couple of years ago in the town where we live. It’s so similar that I think the movie must be based on this situation.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Omg yes I think sadly that part was very realistic. There are a lot of predators out there.

      • UptownGirl says:

        It was a frightful movie, though I thought as I watched it that it is a scenario where something like this could possibly happen, but not to that extent. But I see how easily it could happen especially in countries where the laws are very lax in regards to elder abuse which is rife worldwide. My husbands grandparents in CA were victims of caregivers that stripped them of their worldly possessions decades ago. There are evil and greedy people everywhere.

    • EllenOlenska says:

      Years ago Boston Legal tackled this too…

  14. Lucy2 says:

    Love the green gown.
    I watched I Care a Lot over the weekend- dark, but so good!

  15. Veronica S. says:

    I’m not sure about the hair with it, but the dress is proper drama. She’s had a really big two years, coming out of the hate hard with those good performances.

  16. Case says:

    Anya was my favorite look of the night. She’d be beautiful in anything but wow, what a dress! She was one of the main people I was rooting for last night and I’m so happy she won. So well deserved!

  17. sara says:

    Anya looks stunning, but there were recent pics of her sucking on a huge cigarette and it was no bueno (yes I judge smokers, especially younger people who know what it does)

    • Case says:

      I saw that and was so disappointed. No reason for young people to smoke fully knowing what it can do to you. But I noticed she’s been incredibly thin as of late — she used to be more average-skinny and not quite so model-esque — and I can’t help but wonder if she’s smoking to keep that up. Makes me sad.

      • Anne Call says:

        If she lives in Europe she fits right in. Always blown away by how many people still puffing away overseas. Where I live (Santa Barbara) is not even legal to smoke on the street anymore. I love it.

    • Moin says:

      I wish I would jugde her too, but nicotine is such a b*tch that part of me is just jealous and desperatly wants a drag too. I quit and I tell myself it’s gross and you smell like hell but addiction works in strange ways.

  18. Tiffany says:

    Rosemund dress pretty much tracks for her.

    A beautiful woman who just either doesn’t know how to dress or it really isn’t a priority for her.

  19. Ainsley7 says:

    I feel like Anya’s look could have been amazing. Instead, it’s both too much and not enough. She’s a gorgeous woman, but her hair matching her skin tone blurs her features. It makes her look like a mannequin. Then the dress is so overwhelming at the bottom compared to the top. A darker hair color with more volume or an up do with dramatic earrings would have really balanced everything out.

  20. Heather says:

    Goodness. Happy for Rosamund but she looks awful. The dress is not good and I absolutely loathe the combat boot coming back in style. Yes, I lived through it in the 90s with the baby doll dresses. It was awful then and awful now!

    I spent a summer volunteering in Italy in college – yes, stomped around Europe in my dresses and Doc Martens. A very chic Frenchman I worked with, said “hmmm I thought you were from London with how you dress…” It was not meant as a compliment. Oh, my younger self… it is a look that only somewhat sort of works on very tall and waifish models.

  21. Bea says:

    Perfect, she is so enchanting wow.

  22. vertes says:

    She was very good in QG. Didn’t like her in Emma & Miniaturist. Her face bothers me – eyes so far apart looks semi-alien.

  23. Sorella says:

    I love Anya and love the dress – but hate the extra-long hair on anybody, her included. I hate Rosamund’s hair like that too.

  24. LaurenS says:

    Anya looks skeletal now. Those bright red hands… yuck.

  25. Delphine says:

    Anya’s look is sublime. The dress and the coat are perfect. The blonde washes her out a bit. I think red or dark brunette would have really popped. But overall she looks fantastic and I’m so glad she won.

  26. laura-j says:

    Rosamund is giving me Killing Eve Season 1 Vibes. I am here for it.

    I bought a dress like that for my VIllianelle costume and I’m going to say it’s the most fun thing I’ve ever worn.

  27. Mee yo says:

    How do actors keep their weight down ? In this order:
    A) smoking b) caloric deficit c) cocaine

    • Darla says:

      I know. I’ve done all those and especially once I quit smoking, ugh. It’s torture really. I would never go back, but…and I quit the coke too. A good opioid will also do it for me. But I can’t do those anymore either. You can’t get them. Coke I can get but I promised I’d never do it again once I hit 50. Too dangerous. Sometimes I wonder if I’m living longer or just bored to tears and the time goes by so slowly.

      But yeah, I know how they do it. That’s one question I never sit around asking. They all lie about it, but that’s how they do it, yes.

  28. BountyHunter says:

    Love Rosamund’s look, especially the shoe pairing ❤❤❤ Anya looks like a beautiful little doll, the picture of elegance, but I agree with other posters about her hair. It just doesn’t gel.

  29. L4frimaire says:

    Anya looked gorgeous and sultry,like a cross between Jessica Rabbit and Veronica Lake. I liked Rosamunde’s and Nicola Coughlins look. That is the same designer who did that big pink dress for Villanelle in Killing Eve, so that was the obvious reference. Thought it was fun and a little subversive.It’s funny Nicola Coughlin is wearing yellow, since her character on Bridgerton is often stuck wearing yellow, much to her chagrin.
