Anya Taylor-Joy got to keep her outfits from ‘The Queen’s Gambit’

Anya Taylor-Joy was overjoyed when she got to keep all of her favourite costumes from The Queen’s Gambit.

The 24-year-old actress plays chess genius Beth Harmon in the Netflix show, set in the 1960s, and her chic wardrobe, designed by Gabriele Binder, has been a huge hit with fans.

During a recent interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Anya revealed that she was stunned when the costume designer told her she could take home all of the outfits from her character’s stylish closet.

“Because Gabriele and I worked so closely during the show, she just said ‘Honestly, babe, they’re yours. We found them together and you, Beth, the line is very blurry, so you should just take them home,'” the Emma star explained.

“And I was just overwhelmed by that kindness because I really wanted to keep a bit of Beth with me.”

However, because of the show’s huge success, becoming one of the most-streamed shows in Netflix history, the outfits are now in a museum, ready to be put on display for fashion-loving fans.

“So, I do not know when I will get my clothes back,” Anya joked.

She also confessed that even when she gets her outfits back, they will stay in her apartment and will never be worn outside again, as she fears people will think she’s crazy.

“These beautiful costumes will parade around in my room for my own enjoyment,” the actress quipped.

KELLY THOMPSON – Owner, Makers’ Mrkt

To be honest I don’t really have a style icon, but I do admire people who are unashamedly themselves and love to dress up such as Catherine Baba, Iris Apfel, Emma Rowen Rose and Natalie Joos.

NAVVY – Musician

I look more to brands for style ideas. I love brands like Lazy Oaf, and Ragged Priest, and how they style for shoots.

In saying that, my icon for style and also everything is Lili Ahenkan, @flex.mami on Instagram. She is everything.

I tend to lean more towards casual beachy styles rather than expensive brands or high fashion.

I think my personal style icon was my Nana. She would wear these awesome matching tracksuits with matching heels and handbags and be comfy and look cool as all the time.

SARAH HUTCHINGS – Owner, Orsini Fine Jewellery

I have always loved fashion and this was very much influenced by my mother, she always bought Vogue magazines and Harper’s Bazaar from as early as I can remember, so I was brought up with beautiful fashion and style around me.

My mother was also very discerning when it came to the quality of fabrics, the cut, the style. This has intrinsically rubbed off on me, and this desire for quality and classical style is very much at the forefront of my jewellery designs.
