Having entertained 96 million people during the pandemic with her role in “The Queen’s Gambit,” Anya Taylor-Joy is now wowing millions more on her Instagram. The actress, now the face of designer Viktor & Rolf, today appeared in a new promo for its Flowebomb fragrance, with the photo showing the blonde stunning in an edgy, sheer dress as the camera caught her in a rear view. Anya, 24, was “playing dress up,” and she drove her followers nuts. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as Anya makes headlines for listing her “one thing” in a Byrdie interview, one that brought her mentioning Netflix character Beth Harmon as she said the “one thing” she’d learned from her role was a “superpower” one.
The photo, old-fashioned and modern at once, showed Anya seated, indoors, and backed by a blush pink wall while rocking a totally sheer, logo-printed Viktor & Rolf dress flashing black undies and adorned by a giant back bow.
Anya, sporting a braided hair crown, stained lip, and serving up a direct gaze, held the bottle of Flowebomb fragrance, writing:
“Playing dress up with the new Flowerbomb limited edition gold dress from @viktorandrolf_fragrances, celebrating 15 years? #Flowerbomb #HauteCouturePerfume.”
Half a million likes in an hour ain’t bad when you’re not a Kardashian, and that’s precisely what Anya netted from her 4.1 million Instagram followers – the post follows a Viktor & Rolf one on December 11 snagging the beauty over 1 million likes.
“Candles are a huge part of how I’ve managed to stay grounded. I just travel with candles everywhere. There’s something about lighting one in the evening and having a smell that makes you feel like you’re at home, that I’m able to kind of carry home with me,” adding:
“I also love Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb candle.”

Anya, also known for her roles in “The Witch” and “Split” is fast-rising as a bonafide sensation, with her role in “Emma” also gaining her critical acclaim. Netflix is where it’s at, though, with the chess-themed “The Queen’s Gambit” series propelling Taylor-Joy to superstardom.
“Nobody likes change,” Anya said of the pandemic and as she eyes up 2021. “But I’ve also noticed people being more gentle with each other,” she added, saying she hopes the “sense of community doesn’t go away.”
