Anya Taylor-Joy's Backless Emmys Gown Was Basically Two Dresses in One

Checkmate.

Anya Taylor-Joy is the moment.

Fresh off a straight-A red carpet streak at the Venice International Film Festival, the Last Night in Soho star has arrived at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards — her first-ever trip to the annual TV awards ceremony.

Taylor-Joy, who is nominated tonight for her performance as chess-playing prodigy Beth Harmon in Netflix hit The Queen's Gambit, pulled up to the special outdoor-ish ceremony on Sunday evening in a backlesscream-colored Dior Haute Couture halter gown that transformed itself into a whole other dress with a canary yellow train that wrapped around the actress's waist and arms.

The star polished off the look with a woven bun worn high atop her head, a bold red lip, and star-shaped Tiffany & Co. diamond stud earrings.

We know it's not a competition, but … checkmate.

The actress has been inspiring us with her awards season style all year — from the Golden Globes to the SAG Awards (both of which she won, FYI).

Something tells us Taylor-Joy's awards circuit dominance isn't going to fade anytime soon.
