Her black sequin-embellished ball gown was nothing short of a masterpiece, boasting a flattering square neckline and a plunging back that accentuated her elegant physique.
The A-line, tea-length skirt gracefully flared out, creating a timeless silhouette that paid homage to the golden age of fashion.
To complete her stunning look, the Stranger Things star opted for a retro-inspired cap that added an extra touch of allure. The headpiece featured a chin strap adorned with sequins, ensuring that every detail of her outfit exuded a delightful touch of vintage glamour.

This fashion-forward choice perfectly complemented the film’s 1950s setting and the AW11 PRADA show, showcasing the meticulous curation of Maya’s stylist, Harry Lambert.
Adding a touch of sophistication and elegance, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actress boasted her frame when she slipped into a pair of sleek black pointed-toe heels, perfectly complementing the overall ensemble.
Her makeup artist, Mary Wiles, chose a nude lip to accentuate Maya’s natural beauty and a striking baby blue eyeshadow that beautifully contrasted with the darkness of her outfit, providing a subtle pop of color to her glamorous look.
The excitement surrounding Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City was palpable as Levon Hawke’s sister mingled with her esteemed cast mates, including Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks, Jason Schwartzman, and Bryan Cranston.

This captivating film is set in a fictional American desert town during the 1950s, and Maya Hawke plays the role of June Douglas, a character that truly resonates with her.
In an exclusive interview with MovieWeb, Maya shared her initial reaction upon reading the script, revealing, “I was really helped by Wes sending me an animatic, which is an animated telling of the entire film. And in reading the script, I personally am not the best reader, but I got a little lost within it all on the page, even though it’s such a beautifully written document in and of itself.”

Her passion for the project was evident as she expressed how watching the film brought everything to life, adding, “But getting to watch it play out, all of a sudden, it all clicked into place. I really started to understand the levels that were operating. Then the more we worked on it, and now the more I’ve watched the film, the deeper and deeper it gets every time.”
On set, Maya experienced extraordinary camaraderie, with Wes Anderson’s veteran crew fostering an environment where “no phones, no trailers, people have real conversations.”
As she reminisced about her experience, Maya shared, “There’s very little hierarchy. The snacks aren’t even that great. So it’s really how you talk to each other.”
