13 Reasons Why Actress Alisha Boe on Wearing the Dress of Her Dreams

With a constant stream of red carpet events to attend, it's easy for actresses to get jaded when it comes to designer dresses and jewelry. But 13 Reasons Why actress Alisha Boe definitely isn't immune to that pinch-me moment you get when you slip on the perfect look. Who What Wear got ready with the 21-year-old ahead of the MTV Movie and TV Awards, airing tonight, and she told us about her custom Markarian dress that's "fulfilling all of [her] Old Hollywood dreams."

As luck would have it, Boe and her stylist, Amanda Lim, settled on the very first dress she tried on. "Its beautiful iridescence and incredible corsetry made for a romantic, feminine look that still conveyed a quiet strength," Lim told Who What Wear. "I loved having the opportunity to work with Alexandra [O'Neill, Markarian founder and designer]." Boe's red carpet look also included Irene Neuwirth necklace and rings, Jacquie Aiche earrings, Manolo Blahnik heels, and a Jimmy Choo clutch.
