Anya Taylor-Joy Dressed Like a Princess in a Scalloped Dior Gown at the 2024 Oscars

Anya Taylor-Joy is not up for any Oscars this evening, but she still brought out one of her best ensembles of the year for her role as a presenter. Taylor-Joy stepped out on the red carpet wearing a strapless embellished gown by Dior Haute Couture. Her hair was styled down straight. Taylor-Joy accessorized with Tiffany & Co jewelry. She spoke on the red carpet about how her gown was inspired by Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus.

Taylor-Joy is fresh off the Dune: Part Two press tour, as she made a surprise appearance in the film. She thanked director Denis Villeneuve “for making dreams come true💋,” in an Instagram.

Taylor-Joy spoke to ELLE in April 2021 about how acting saved her life, as she was bullied as a child. “It just really pushed me,” she said. “Much the same way as Beth needed chess [referring to her character in The Queen’s Gambit], I needed acting. I needed to believe in a place where I could be valued and appreciated, and actually have something to contribute rather than constantly feeling like, ‘What is wrong with me, and why do I not fit in?’”

She described the kindness that she experienced on the set of The Witch at age 18 as feeling like “taking a breath for the first time in a really, really long time.”

She recalled nearly quitting the profession years later but her friendship with fellow actress Mia Goth really helped her not to give up. “I had been working back to back—just before Emma, I’d done two projects at the same time, and I was going through some emotional relationship stuff,” Taylor-Joy said. “So at the beginning of 2019, I was just really broken and frightened of everything, and Mia and I were driving back from rehearsal [for Emma]. I turned to her and said, ‘I think I’m going to quit acting. I don’t think I can do this.’ And I’ve never seen Mia look so worried in my life. She was like, ‘But…that’s what you do. You can’t not…what are you talking about?’ I was like, ‘I think I need to back out now and just let it be and try to take care of my heart.’ And she was like, ‘No, that would be really bad. You can’t not have the thing that is your oxygen.’ I’m really glad she said that.”
