Sydney Sweeney Rocks a Dramatic Plunging Corset and Zip-Off Skirt

Sydney Sweeney wore an outfit so undeniably reflective of her personal style when she celebrated her Variety Power of Young Hollywood cover at the publication's party in Hollywood on August 10. While the photoshoot saw her in bright, '90s-inspired cutout swimwear and platforms, Sweeney's red carpet look, coordinated by Molly Dickson, was a step in an edgier direction. Sweeney sported a plunging, black leather bustier top and skirt from Alexander McQueen. The corset boasted structural peplum at the hem, and the skirt featured a dramatic leg slit emphasized by a zipper that ran diagonally from the butt to the upper thigh. Finished with metallic cap-toe pumps, a diamond-encrusted chunky silver hoop, and rings from Lady Grey, Mara Paris, and Ralph Masri, the asymmetrical look was head-turning, to say the least.

All that being said, hair stylist Glen Oropeza balanced out the toughness with elegant, glossy waves; Melissa Hernandez employed silver eyeshadow and sweeping cat-eye liner; and Zola Ganzorigt painted on a cool, textured iridescent blue manicure. Sweeney looked every bit the star as she posed for photos with a copy of her own magazine.

"@variety thank you for including me in the class of 2023, it was such a great night! and also i just wanna thank my incredible team who've been by my side since day one, and my fellow cast mates who are like family now :) got so much love and appreciation for all of you," she wrote on Instagram alongside a carousel of eight shots from the evening that include fellow actors Alexandra Shipp (who rocked a tailored Vivienne Westwood pinstripe set), and Dermot Mulroney. Ahead, see every angle of her special night.
