Anya Taylor-Joy’s Houndstooth Nails Are Very ’60s

We’ve seen bold, monochromatic beauty looks sweeping across celebrity Instagram posts and red carpets alike, but on Nov. 9, Anya Taylor-Joy took the trend a step further, matching her manicure to the exact houndstooth pattern on her outfit. On a London press tour for new film “The Menu,” the “Queen’s Gambit” star ended up debuting a full black-and-white look with a decidedly mod feel. As for her nails, done by celebrity manicurist Chisato Yamamoto, each finger featured an immaculate amount of detail, carefully designed to mimic the exact houndstooth on Taylor-Joy’s vintage Alaia jacket from Aralda Vintage. The end result turned out remarkably chic, fitting Taylor-Joy’s aesthetic well, and highlighting her sense of elevated glamour.

Although her nails included such a detailed pattern, the overall look still felt timeless instead of busy, and Taylor-Joy’s hairstylist, Gregory Russell, even admitted to turning to the ’60s for his beauty inspiration. From Taylor-Joy’s white-blond hair to her oversized sunglasses, her color-coordinated outfit looked perfectly put together while still maintaining a fun, trendy feel. Later on in the night, Taylor-Joy kept it classic with another monochrome manicure, this time matching her open-back black dress to glossy black nails, which Yamamoto said she achieved using Dior nail polish. Get a closer look at Taylor-Joy’s nails below for all the future manicure inspo.
