In an interview with THR, Joey shared that she’s “been having so much fun with my looks, and I’ve been choosing them all for me, and they’re making me happy.”
Joey said she’s “enjoying every moment of playing around with my style.”
“I feel like I’m entering a new form of myself, where I am not afraid anymore to kind of just do what I want on the carpet,” Joey added about her newfound sense of style. “And I’m feeling good.”
The European promo tour served an array of eclectic looks from the cast, but it was Joey who caught our attention. She gave us black leather, peek-a-boo cutouts, a corset, a suit, a lot of cleavage, and even opera gloves in the summer heat.
Los Angeles was the final stop in their promotional circuit, and Joey did not disappoint with her premiere look.

The long-sleeved number also had cut-out details on the hips, illusion inserts, and a fringe-trimmed floor-length skirt.

The actress recently celebrated her 23rd birthday and tried a new hairstyle for the premiere. This time, it was a slicked-down and a side-parted bob that added a touch of modern edge to her look.
“I think that I’m really having a lot of fun with my hair,” Joey told The Hollywood Reporter. “My hairdresser, Dimitris Giannetos, is amazing.”
As for her gorgeous face, makeup artist Allan Avendaño gave her a rosy glow with a graphic white eyeliner for a bit of drama.
She finished off her look with a stunning Shaun Leane drop necklace, Mara Paris silver rings, and a Hirotaka diamond ear cuff.
Channeling Baby Spice
Earlier that day, Joey joined the Barbiecore trend for a press junket in Los Angeles.

“Mr. Two Left Feet”
When asked about his recent fashion moments, Brad had a simple reply for Entertainment Tonight: “We’re just gonna die, so let’s have some fun before we go out.”
Brad also had something to say about his “very beautiful” daughter, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, whose dance videos recently went viral.
“It brings a tear to the eye,” Brad said with evident pride in his voice. He added that he doesn’t “know where she got it from” and referred to himself as “Mr. Two Left Feet.”
Shiloh, who’s the spitting image of her mom Angelina Jolie, has been taking dance classes at the Millennium Dance Complex in Los Angeles.
The 16-year-old showed impressive skills as she danced in sneakers and a black oversized Beatles T-shirt.
Ever the supportive dad, Brad said that he loves it “when they find their own way, find things they are interested in, find their own voice, and flourish.”
