Daisy Edgar-Jones is a star in the making, and she indeed shone brightly at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party on Sunday.
After making waves at the Golden Globes as a nominee for her supporting role in Under the Banner of Heaven, the 24-year-old British actress made a bold statement with her fashion choice, wearing a racy see-through gown that turned heads and left a lasting impression.
The Gucci dress, part of the brand’s Autumn ’23 collection, featured a nude bodysuit with a black see-through overlay embellished with diamonds and crystals from top to bottom.

Her glittering dress had a high neckline and bulky collar encrusted with diamonds and crystals that added a touch of elegance to the bold design, and Daisy carried it off with confidence and grace.
Styled by Nicky Yates, the actress spun her magic amid the A-list crowd as she paired the dress with tall, black Gucci strappy sandals that perfectly complemented the look.
Daisy’s choice of accessories was minimal, wearing a Vacheron Constantin watch and delicate Cartier drop-shaped earrings, but they were enough to add a touch of sophistication to her ensemble.
The actress opted for natural makeup and an updo with her brown hair, letting the fringe frame her delicate features.

Apart from her stunning fashion choice, Daisy has been making waves in the entertainment industry with her exceptional talent.
The budding actress had her acting debut in 2022 when she portrayed the lead character of Marianne alongside Paul Mescal as Connell in Sally Rooney’s Normal People. She subsequently went on to star in Fresh and Where the Crawdads Sing.
In an interview with Elle UK in July 2022, Daisy disclosed that her mother didn’t want her to pursue a career as an actor.
Wendy and Philip, Daisy’s parents, were both working in the television industry – Wendy was an editor, while Philip is currently the head of Sky Arts.
When Daisy decided she wanted to be an actor at age 15, her mother suggested she go for an audition at the National Youth Theatre.
Daisy shared, “I think she kind of hoped I wouldn’t get in. Not in a mean way – just because it’s a really hard job.”

She continued addressing her current acting career and industry resilience, saying, “As an actor, you have to be resilient. If I have a bad day at work, it’s judged by a lot of people, and I have to live with it forever. But I still have to make brave choices to have a shot at making something remarkable.”
Daisy Edgar-Jones is gearing up to star as four-time Grammy winner Carole King in the Beautiful film adaption.
Her dedication and passion for her craft have earned her a place among her generation’s most sought-after up-and-coming stars as she recently landed a role opposite Euphoria hunk Jacob Elordi in a buzzy literary adaptation.

On February 28, Deadline revealed that Daisy had joined an upcoming production of the film, On Swift Horses, which is a sprawling drama based on Shannon Pufahl’s 2019 novel with the same title set in the American West.
It focuses on newlyweds Lee and Muriel, who are starting a new life together after his return from the Korean War. However, the presence of Lee’s charming younger brother Julius, a troubled gambler with a secret, disrupts this newly discovered stability.
The three decide to move to California to begin a new life together, but a risky love triangle swiftly develops when Julius vanishes and decides to go to Las Vegas instead.
