Keke Palmer made a statement with her head-to-toe Y2K-inspired look at the Nope premiere.

The actress, who stars in the Jordan Peele-directed film, wore a Marc Jacobs cropped white corset top, low-rise black skirt and chunky black platform Kiki boots on Monday's red carpet. She completed the look with elbow-length black gloves and hoop earrings.

Palmer, 28, shared a Instagram photo of the outfit, writing, "It's the runway look for me."

The star told Vogue that the look, styled by Wayman and Micah, was the perfect choice for the film's red carpet.

"I've been a huge fan of Marc and his artistry for years so I jumped at the opportunity to wear one of his designs for the premiere," she said. "It made me feel powerful and effortless at the same time, which is very hard to do. In the end, the entire look, mixed with my braids, really felt futurist yet classic—which I thought was perfect for the Nope premiere and fit the theme of the film."

She added, "I instantly loved it. It was a no brainer!"

The low-rise trend, popularized in the early 2000s, has gradually been making a comeback and Palmer is a fan. "Mama likes to lengthen her torso at all times," she said. "And that's on God."

Celebrity styling duo Wayman and Micah told Vogue that they wanted Palmer to step out in looks that are drastically different from her Nope character, who is more "covered up" in the film.

Palmer appeared in a mesh Prada dress for an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, layered over a white tank top and black short shorts. She then wore a neon orange and pink number on Late Night with Seth Myers on Thursday.

While Palmer has been a red carpet staple for years, she opened up how she uses makeup to cover her acne in a candid Instagram post in 2020.

"Ever since I have shown my acne scars and just my struggle with acne, I saw a lot of comments following that post because people [were] looking at my makeup coverage and how I was able to camouflage and hide my scars. I've been dealing with acne and struggling with makeup and trying to cover it for a really long time. I don't think there's any shame in it," she wrote alongside a video demonstrating her makeup routine.
