“I can morph from one person to another really quickly.” That’s Anya Taylor-Joy in W‘s new April cover story. With her taut physique and unconventional beauty, Taylor-Joy exudes the magnetic power of a silent movie star, which has made her Hollywood’s new scream queen, the star of new horror blockbusters The Witch and Split. It’s also why she is a vision in haute couture in the new issue, a delicate flower in Giambattista Valli tulle or a screen goddess in flawless Chanel.
