Fresh off the back of her Golden Globe nominations, Anya Taylor-Joy is straight back to work. The star of Netflix’s The Queens Gambit was spotted on set in decidedly glamorous get-up, alongside her co-star Margot Robbie. The pair were in costume for their roles in the mysterious upcoming David O. Russell-directed film, which has been shrouded in secrecy.
For her part, Taylor-Joy was seen in a floor-length red gown, with a plunging neckline, floral accents on the shoulder and a delicately belted waist with a jewelled brooch. Her icy blonde locks were piled into a chic, retro up-do and she wore vampy red lipstick. Of course, she was also seen carrying a face mask in between scenes to ensure all COVID-19 precautions were followed.

Robbie, meanwhile, managed to keep her outfit relatively under wraps, but could be seen wearing a dark brown – almost black – wig that fell in tight waves, reminiscent of the hairstyles popular in the ’40s. She’s also previously been photographed wearing costumes that give off a masculine vibe, such as black shirts and slacks with brown brogues.
The film, which has only just commenced shooting due to delays caused by the pandemic, might not have any details attached to publicly, but it’s attracted one seriously all-star cast. In addition to Taylor-Joy and Robbie, Christian Bale, Robert De Niro, Rami Malek, Zoe Saldana, Mike Myers and Chris Rock are all signed on to star.
Not much is known about the plot, but Deadline reports that the story is based on an original concept of Russell’s. We can’t wait for this one to drop!
