She’s all that! Sydney SweeneyThe red carpet is not something she hasn’t seen before. 24-year-old actress has more acting credits than you can count (50+!) — so it’s safe to say she knows how to rock the step-and-repeat.
While Euphoria — and her epic character Cassie Howard — may come to mind when you think of the Washington native, her resume spans well beyond the hit HBO drama series. She began her career in 2009, and has had guest roles on shows such as Criminal Minds, Grey’s AnatomyAnd Pretty Little Liars.
But it wasn’t long before she landed high-profile roles like Emaline Addario in Everything is a Suck!, Eden Spencer in The Handmaid’s TaleAlice in Sharp Objects. The girl’s busy!
The obvious is one of the most recent roles: Euphoria and HBO’s The White Lotus.
With all of these gigs came a bevy of red carpet appearances — and so many epic fashion moments. Sweeney is known for wearing ultra-feminine silhouettes but she is equally fond of a minidress or a floor-length, elegant gown.
One of the star’s most buzzed-about red carpet fashion moments was from the 2021 People’s Choice Awards, where she exuded Old Hollywood glamour. Sweeney wore a black velvet Saint Laurent minidress, with a large satin bow detail on the neckline. She paired the look with matching heels, a crystal choker, as well as a dramatic bob.
It’s no surprise that Sweeney’s fashion icon is none other than Brigitte Bardot. “I have so many pictures of her saved in my phone,” she said in an April interview.
Bardot’s influence is obvious on the red carpet. After all, Sweeney’s red carpet appearances fuse classic French girl style (think: waist-cinching dresses! bouclé tweed) with undeniable sex appeal à la the renowned French actress. She’s even channeled her famous up-dos!
Of course, behind all Hollywood style stars are their stylists and Sweeney’s looks are guided by her guru, Molly Dickson. (The fashion professional also happens to be a colleague of Sweeney. Kelsea Ballerini, Camila MendesAnd Addison RaeAmong others. Rodarte, Miu Miu, Christian Siriano and Miu Miu are some of the luxury labels they often turn to. She’s even known to debut custom ensembles (see: the chic black lace Prada number she wore to the Canneseries event earlier this month).
