Anya Taylor Joy’s Fairy Tale Look
The structured piece had a boxy shape and was made of “soft, plush velvet” with a “shiny sheen and bow appliqué detailing.” She paired the outfit with simple gold sandals with straps and a choker necklace with loops. Again, though, the XXL shawl that looked like a duvet got the most attention.
Fans’ Reaction to Anya Taylor Look
Anya’s magical cape look has been all over social media, and fans of “The Menu” star are in awe of her. “Anya in Schiaparelli is really changing my life,” someone wrote on Twitter. Another said, “Anya Taylor Joy may not serve on red carpets all the time, but when she does, it’s always a moment!”
Celebrities and fans all over social media loved the dramatic look. One person said, “Anya Taylor Joy looks gorggggg,” and another said, “One thing about Anya Taylor Joy: she will always serve.” We agree with you. Just so you know, Anya was nominated for the BAFTA Rising Star Award in 2017.

Aside from her, stars like Jamie Lee Curtis and Cate Blanchett also got attention by wearing a blue ribbon in support of refugees and people who have been forced to leave their homes. This was done to help the people affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, which killed about 44,000 people and forced thousands of others to leave their homes.
“All Quiet on the Western Front,” an anti-war movie on Netflix, got the most nominations at the 2023 BAFTAs. This year, Anya, along with Jamie Lee Curtis, gave the award for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director, or Producer to Charlotte Wells for “Aftersun.” William and Catherine, Prince and Princess of Wales, also went to the ceremony.
The BAFTAs have been held at the Royal Albert Hall for the past six years. But this year, the star-studded ceremony was moved to the Royal Festival Hall at the Southbank Centre. The organisers said this allowed the 76th ceremony to be the “most ambitious and accessible night yet.”
