Suki Waterhouse paid homage to the night sky during the 2023 Elle Style Awards in London on Sept. 5. Dressed for the occasion, Waterhouse arrived in a Fendi evening gown adorned with a web of black beads and silver crystals. The elegant design featured a sheer bodice and a floor-length skirt that seemed to levitate behind her effortlessly as she strutted into the event.
The dress, which made its debut in the designer’s fall/winter 2023 couture show, boasted a sheer, long-sleeved bodice and mock turtleneck studded in hundreds of miniature crystals. Below the bust, the top seemed to transform into a second design: an opaque, off-the-shoulder blouse with wrap detailing. The bodice continued down into a black bodysuit layered with a see-through skirt that almost completely covered Waterhouse’s strappy, heeled sandals. Already fully frosted, she kept her accessories simple, opting only for a diamond ring on her right pointer finger.
At first glance, Waterhouse’s dress is a sophisticated take on the no-pants trend made popular by celebrities such as Kendall Jenner and Sydney Sweeney. Up close, the design was an intricate tapestry of beading and crystalwork that created the illusion of a night sky. While Waterhouse didn’t have to go to outer space to secure her outfit for the evening, she certainly served a look that was out of this world.
In addition to this radiant dress, Waterhouse recently stepped out in a purple Sommer bikini during a resort getaway in Austria. A few months earlier, she wore a completely sheer dress adorned with floral appliqués while attending the Met Gala with boyfriend Robert Pattinson.
