Anya Taylor-Joy Just Wore the Topical Flat Shoe That Always Divides Our Editors

Whilst we know her for impressive acting credentials, Anya Taylor-Joy has been busy quietly making a name for herself as one of the newest heavyweights on the celebrity fashion scene. With a front-row seat at major runway shows (she was just spotted at Dior's pre-autumn 2024 showcase) and a growing list of red carpet triumphs, Taylor-Joy's flawless fashion reputation is almost on par with her accomplished acting career.

Though Taylor-Joy often reserves her public appearances for star-studded events, the blossoming style icon was out this week in a masterfully assembled casual outfit that's made me want to raid her wardrobe even more than I did before.

Crafting a casual outfit that combined new and enduring trends, Taylor-Joy's ensemble struck the styling balance that all fashion people aim for. Selecting a leather biker jacket, straight-leg jeans and a classic white vest top, she freshened up her timeless staples with Maison Margiela's controversial Tabi loafers. Splitting fashion crowds and our editors alike, Tabis have become one of the most divisive fashion items on the market. With a distinctive silhouette that features the brand's signature split toes, the shoes celebrate a polished and classic design whilst indulging in a playful (and controversial) twist. Some people love them, some hate them, and it seems Taylor-Joy falls into the former category.

If you too are into Taylor-Joy's off-duty style, read on to discover her outfit along with an edit of our other favourite loafers to shop this season.
