We’re used to seeing Sydney Sweeney in whimsical Miu Miu designs, floral and ethereal Oscar de la Renta gowns, and classic Tory Burch ensembles, but we just saw another side of the Euphoria star’s style on Monday evening. Sweeney attended an event at the Getty Center in Los Angeles wearing a futuristic and edgy leather-on-leather ensemble from Rokh’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection, recently shown during Paris Fashion Week.
Styled by Molly Dickson, the Emmy-nominated actress wore a black leather crop top jacket with cutouts above her bust. The jacket’s button-down panel extended to a utilitarian skirt, worn with leather wide-legged trousers.
The White Lotus star teamed her look with black platform boots, dainty diamond earrings and an assortment of dazzling rings with a dark red manicure. Sweeney kept her makeup subtle and styled her honey blonde tresses in a scrunched wet look.
Last week, Sweeney confirmed her new role as Barbarella in the upcoming Sony Pictures project. Based on Jean-Claude Forest’s French comic book series on a space-age vixen, the storyline was later turned into a 1968 feature film starring the legendary Jane Fonda. We can’t help but spot the similarities between Sweeney’s latest style moment and Fonda’s intergalactic Paco Rabanne-designed space gear.
On the red carpet, Sweeney spoke with Access Hollywood about her look for the evening and her upcoming project. Sweeney said “Honestly, when I put this on, I was like ‘Am I giving a little bit of Barbarella?’”
“I’m excited for all the looks,” Sweeney said. She added that she looked forward to “the amount of fun that I’m going to have with the character. The original was so campy and fun, and I feel like Jane Fonda did such an amazing job of creating an iconic character and I’m hoping I can fill those shoes.”
