The 36-year-old actress turned heads in a light rose-pink Elie Saab couture gown that was nothing short of theatrical splendor.
Turner-Smith’s long-sleeved dress had a sheer foundation with a plunging choker-topped neckline and was adorned with appliqué crystals, lattice beading, and sleeves with diamond-patterned cutouts.
The pièce de résistance was the flared tufted skirt adorned with light mauve, pink, and blue feathers, which expertly complemented the bodice and cuffs.

Her entire ensemble was truly ballerina-worthy and perfectly accented by stacked rings and tiny stud and front-back earrings by Anita Ko, chosen by stylists Wayman and Micah.
To add a magical touch, Turner-Smith slipped into a pair of light pink sandals by Flor de Maria. She wore the pink Alexandria design, which features elegant 4-inch stiletto heels and smooth leather uppers with pointy soles.
The clear PVC ankle, slingback, and toe straps embellished with tiny pink crystals made the sandals truly glamorous, giving Turner-Smith’s entire ensemble a captivating framework.

Jodie Turner-Smith first appeared on our screens in the 2019 film Queen & Slim, and then she gained notoriety for being controversially cast in the lead role of the anticipated drama Anne Boleyn in 2021.
Meanwhile, Turner-Smith decided she would start 2022 by having a good laugh. Consider White Noise, a gritty comedy from Noah Baumbach about a family fleeing a 1980s chemical outbreak, and Vince Vaughn‘s upcoming detective series Bad Monkey on Apple TV+.

In an interview for Fashion’s March 2023 cover, Turner-Smith shared her take on red-carpet dressing. The actress said, “I always look at clothes and think to myself: ‘Who is she? What’s her energy?’”
This past August, the star of The Independent made news across the globe for sporting edgy and bright ensembles on the red carpet at the Venice International Film Festival. And with the assistance of her stylists, Wayman and Micah, her outfits have only grown more voluminous and striking.
The fashion-forward star explained how she and her stylists worked together, saying, “Babe, I’m a Virgo, so I’m constantly sending my stylists photos of things I like. Everything I wear is about bringing my personality to the forefront of things, and there’s a legion of women who live inside me.”

She elaborated, “It’s about feeling comfortable in my skin — not actual comfort — and telling their story. And some stories are jagged and painful.”
With her bold fashion choices, Jodie Turner-Smith continues to make a statement and showcase her individuality, proving that fashion is not just about the clothes, but the energy and confidence one brings to them.
