Anya Taylor-Joy Stuns as Chris Hemsworth Breaks Black-Tie Dress Code at Cannes ‘Furiosa’ Premiere

The cast and creatives behind Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga hit the red carpet for its Cannes Film Festival debut on Wednesday.

Stars Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth both went with surprising picks for their style for the film’s Cannes premiere.

After making headlines for her elaborate Paco Rabanne ensemble at the film’s Australian premiere, Taylor-Joy went with a classic champagne-colored Dior ball gown complemented by Tiffany & Co. jewelry. The platinum necklace, a centerpiece for the star’s look, features diamonds of more than 68 total carats. Rounding out her look are 18-karat white gold diamond earrings and two platinum diamond rings from Tiffany & Co.

While The Menu star’s classic Old Hollywood styling was a departure from some of her recent red carpet looks, the choice to go with Dior was not. The 28-year-old star is an ambassador for the luxury fashion house. The French brand has thus far also dressed honorary Palme d’Or recipients Meryl Streep and Juliette Binoche at the French film festival.

Taylor-Joy’s co-star Hemsworth also turned heads with his ensemble. The Australian actor paired his black trousers and white jacket and shirt with Chopard’s Alpine Eagle 41 Frozen watch (made with ethical 18-karat white gold and set with diamonds and sapphires) along with diamond cufflinks set in ethical 18-karat white gold.

In a daring move, Hemsworth went sans tie, technically breaking the Cannes dress code. According to the festival’s website, “to attend the Gala screenings, a dinner jacket (tuxedo) with a bow tie or evening dress is required. In the absence of this, you may wear a cocktail dress, a dark trouser suit, a dressy top with black trousers, a black dress, a black or midnight blue suit with a bow tie.” The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to a rep for Hemsworth for comment.

In recent years, Taylor-Joy has become known for her bold red carpet presence. Along with the gold-and-silver Paco Rabanne minidress and headpiece with arrow-like spikes that the actress wore to the Furiosa premiere, a white Dior Couture ensemble that she wore to the Dune: Part Two premiere became a much talked about red carpet moment of 2024.

In Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, Taylor-Joy stars as the title character, taking over the role played by Charlize Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road. The prequel follows the young Furiosa after she is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus, who goes to war with Fury Road tyrant Immortan Joe. While the two battle for dominance, Furiosa must survive and piece together the means to find her way home. Hemsworth and Tom Burke star alongside Taylor-Joy.

Furiosa hits theaters on May 24.
