Anya Taylor-Joy looked every inch the star on the red carpet at this year's Primetime Emmy Awards.

The Queen's Gambit actress wore a yellow Dior dress with a cream-colored halter. Her hair, woven into a glamorous high bun styled by Gregory Russell, matched the gown's warm golden tone, and she finished off the look with a bold red lip and glamorous silver jewelry.

The Queen's Gambit has been a recipient of 18 total nominations, including both Outstanding Writing and Casting for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. Taylor-Joy's performance in the series garnered her a nomination for Lead Actress.

Ahead of the ceremony, Taylor-Joy shared her gratitude for the team and her experience working on the show. "I feel incredibly grateful that people know me for what was really deemed a passion project," said Joy.

She also shouted out the show's fashion, which had its own audience of devoted fans. "The wardrobe was such an important part about bringing Beth to life," she said. "I was so grateful that Gabrielle Binder and I had the same ideas and really understood each other."

Deemed one of People's Best Dressed Stars of 2021, Joy has had her fair share of other recent ultra-glam looks in previous weeks. She appeared at this year's Venice Film Festival several weeks ago for the premiere of her upcoming psychological thriller, Last Night in Soho, which is set to release in October. In an ode to 1960s Barbie, she wore a bright pink Dior Haute Couture satin silk midi dress, paired with a matching pink beret and pumps. She accessorized with a silver Tiffany & Co. necklace, and wore her bright blonde hair down in loose, sleek body waves.

Earlier this month, she spoke to Variety about how excited she is for her upcoming film, particularly after having recently starred in such a popular Netflix series. “I feel very, very fortunate to have worked on the things that I’ve worked on," said Joy. "If anything, every day I fall more and more in love with what I do. And that is what’s so important."

“I’m here for the work and successes is wonderful, but at the end of the day, what we do every single day is get up to go to work, and that’s what I love to do,” she continued. “So I just feel incredibly privileged to get the chance to keep doing that and the chance to work with such wonderful talented people.”
