At Sunday's Critics Choice Awards, Anya Taylor-Joy scooped the award for 'Best Actress in a Limited Series' for her role as chess prodigy Beth, in the hit Netflix show The Queen’s Gambit

The 24-year-old wowed viewers at the virtual ceremony in another gown from French fashion house of Dior. Anya teamed up once again with stylist Law Roach, who completed her look with matching gloves, as well as purple earrings and a gold ring from Bvlgari.
