Anya Taylor-Joy’s Barbie Ponytail in New York
Anya Taylor-Joy might be starring in the upcoming comedy-horror film “The Menu,” but she is channeling Barbie for her latest look. However, we don’t mean in the typical pink ensemble way but rather via her icy-blond hair. At the New York premiere of her new movie, the actor’s hair was swept into an ultrahigh updo that has been dubbed the “Barbie ponytail.” With the sleek hairstyle clad in a thick satin black ribbon, the polished look added drama to her strapless minidress.
Inspired by the iconic doll’s long blond hair, the look has been trending of late thanks to the upcoming “Barbie” film, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. The “Barbie ponytail” is characterized by high placement on the top of the head with a super-straight pony, often with a flipped-up end. While hairstylist Gregory Russsell keeps Taylor-Joy’s pony pin straight, there’s no denying the updo is giving gothic Barbie vibes as she follows the likes of Ariana Grande, Rihanna, and Lizzo with the look.
Taylor-Joy added a deep burgundy lip, feathered eyelashes, and glowing skin for a striking finish to her red carpet outfit. Her dress, by Dior, featured a strapless bodice and structured full skirt made of intricate black lace, as stylist Ryan Hastings paired it with fishnet opera gloves and black patent stilettos. A Tiffany & Co. diamond necklace and floral earrings added a final touch of sparkle.
While on the press tour for “The Menu,” she has been serving up some show-stopping looks. Taylor-Joy rocked a cobalt-blue leather dress at the London premiere, wore a super-sheer ’70s getup on “The Graham Norton Show,” matched her houndstooth dress to her patterned nails in London, and hit the streets of New York in a red plunging minidress.
It’s great to see Taylor-Joy expressing her individuality with so many different fashion and beauty looks. Read ahead to see all angles of her “Barbie ponytail.”
