Anya Taylor-Joy's Fancy Tulle Gown Took 200 Hours to Make
Dior gave InStyle a behind-the-scenes look at how her Critics' Choice Awards look came to be.
In 2021, red carpet fashion can be a little all over the place. Will someone appear at a virtual award show wearing a tie-dye sweatshirt? Yes. But, will we also see a bunch of glamorous gowns at the same event, being worn by our favorite leading ladies? Also yes — especially if we're talking about Anya Taylor-Joy.
While we're still not over her green Dior dress and matching jacket from the Golden Globes, Taylor-Joy and her stylist, Law Roach, gifted us with another dreamy look for the 2021 Critics' Choice Awards., where the actress took home the award for Best Actress. Taken off the Spring 2020 Haute Couture runway, the berry tulle dress made The Queen's Gambit star look elegant and regal — and wait until you see all the effort that went into making it.
According to Dior, two people worked to sew this stunning design together, and between the draped bodice and handmade macramé detailing, the process took 200 hours. We enjoy seeing the finished product — styled with matching gloves, as well as purple earrings and a gold ring from Bvlgari — but it's extra fascinating to get this inside scoop.
This isn't even the first time this year that Taylor-Joy wore a wore something that took hundreds of hours to create. Her Golden Globes dress, also from Dior, was completed after 300 hours.
Ahead, see what this gorgeous, glam Dior Haute Couture dress looked like on the runway, as well as how it was built, piece by piece.
