Maisie Williams Debuts Lydia Deetz Bangs at Paris Fashion Week

Maisie Williams took a cue from Lydia Deetz as she styled her hair for Paris Fashion Week [1]. On Jan. 23, the "Pistol" star debuted a spiky set of micro bangs [2] while attending the Christian Dior haute couture spring/summer 2023 show. Like TikTok users taking a cue from Wednesday Addams to experiment with edgier makeup [3] and darker fashion trends [4], Williams let Tim Burton's original goth heroine inspire her look. "Very Parisienne," hairstylist Yumiko Hikage [5] captioned behind-the-scenes footage of Williams getting ready for the day on her Instagram Stories.

For her face, Williams's makeup artist, Helene Vasnier [6], used Dior Beauty products to apply thick mascara, bold eyeliner, and a set of swooping lashes. As a final touch, Vasnier used black liner to mark a dot on each of Williams's eyelids, applying a second dot near the outer corner of each eye. The Parisienne mime-inspired makeup, Lydia Deetz–esque outfit, and "The Nightmare Before Christmas"–style dress made for a subtly avant-garde look.

The former "Game of Thrones" star [7] tied the entire ensemble together with a black-and-white-patchwork dress in plaid, complete with a lace-up corset.

In 2021, Williams made her Met Gala debut with an inky-black-bow hairstyle [8] that paired beautifully with her winged eyeliner. The following year, she returned to the steps of the Costume Institute in a tight bun overlaid with bejeweled locks of hair styled in flat waves. The finished look was a Betty Boop–esque updo almost as edgy as her micro bangs.
