GQ may have been celebrating its 2022 Men of the Year Awards in London on Nov. 16, but on the red carpet, all eyes were on one woman: Sydney Sweeney. The actress turned out a fierce, futuristic moment wearing a black turtleneck ensemble from LaQuan Smith's spring/summer 2023 collection featuring long sleeves, maxi skirt and daring front cut-out. Looking like a modern fembot, she also wore a tough metallic breastplate that resembled amor and ear cuff by Lady Grey.
For glam, Sydney swept up her strawberry blonde locks into a chic updo, with a piece left loose up front, and added a sharp black cat-eye eye and nude lip.
The badass outfit was a complete 180 from the soft ballet-inspired look Sydney wore to the 11th Annual LACMA Art + Film Gala earlier this month. For the star-studded event in Los Angeles, the Euphoria star donned a pastel pink Giambattista Valli minidress that consisted of a plunging neckline, exaggerated sleeves made of tulle peonies and a ruffled skirt, reminiscent of a ballerina's tutu. She accessorized with matching pink tights and sparkly silver platform heels.
Perhaps Sydney's latest battle-ready red carpet look was inspired by her next onscreen gig: the highly anticipated Barbarella reboot. Last month, the 25-year-old confirmed she would be slipping into the iconic vinyl space suits of the title character just as Jane Fonda famously did in the 1968 original film, now considered a cult classic. Sydney announced the news Instagram by sharing throwback poster of the sci-fi vixen with the caption, "time to save the universe."
Sydney previously admitted that following in Jane's famous footsteps is a daunting task, but said she's excited to introduce her sexy space heroine to a whole audience.
"I mean, Jane Fonda, she created such an incredible, iconic character," she told the Associated Press in October. "And I want to, hopefully, just fill those shoes and give more to a whole new generation—her outfits, sci-fi, the fun of the story."
The White Lotus star added, "So I'm looking forward to it."
