The Kissing Booth star looked fierce during her interview as she donned a black snake-print sleeveless dress from the Greek fashion brand Milkwhite.

Highlighting her cleavage and toned curves, the dress features a bustier bodice with a boob-baring sweetheart neckline, thick shoulder straps, and a flattering form-fitting silhouette.

She added a translucent green crystal chain halter-top from Akira over her dress, adding an interesting element to the look.

Joey King stars as the titular character in The Princess. The Le-Van Kiet-directed period action thriller isn’t your typical princess movie.

King plays the role of a headstrong princess who finds herself betrothed to a cruel sociopath named Julius, played by Dominic Cooper.

When she refuses to accept the marriage, she gets locked away in a tower, and Julius overthrows her father and takes his throne. This leaves the sword-yielding princess no choice but to “protect her family and save the kingdom.”
