Anya Taylor-Joy May Be Hollywood's Most Underrated Beauty Icon
Anya Taylor-Joy isn't afraid to experiment with her hair and makeup when she steps out at events, trying out everything from glitter shadow to crowns to every shade of bold lipstick. With the help of her glam squad, including hairstylist Carlos Ferraz and makeup artist Nathalie Eleni, Taylor-Joy wears unusual and intricate hair and beauty looks that perfectly match her fearless red carpet style. She explained to Glamour UK that because she doesn't wear makeup day-to-day, she's "so extra" on the red carpet, having fun with the "glam territory." It's all part of her approach to create a role for herself on a night out.
The Peaky Blinders and The Queen Gambit star has switched up her hair color a number of times over the years, taking cues from her roles in dark thrillers by opting for dyed black locks and dark lips. Taylor-Joy revealed to Harper's Bazaar that she eschewed her natural blond hair in the beginning because she thought it made her look "very soft and vulnerable," only to come back to it later in her career to reharness her "vulnerability as a strength." Ahead, take a look at 29 of Anya's most extra beauty looks, which perfectly show off both sides of her personality.
