Mia Wasikowska Is a Surprising Red Carpet Hit

Mia Wasikowska

Compared to Crimson Peak co-star Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska might not be the most obvious red carpet star. Her beauty tends towards neutral — often even absent — while her premiere-night gowns demonstrate an inclination towards classic Hollywood, monochrome, and not a lot of adventure. Yet she’s quietly amassed a series of show-stoppers over the course of her recent packed press tours for Crimson Peak, Tracks, Only Lovers Left Alive, and most recently, Alice Through the Looking Glass. She’s favored the most recognizable names — the Chanels, the Diors, the Alexander McQueens — interspersed with a few surprise appearances by Proenza Schouler and Roland Mouret. It turns out, Mia Wasikowska has red carpet leanings that are a bit more eclectic and chic than we might have previously given her credit for.
