The Star Trek Actress You're About to Get Obsessed With

Watch out red carpet leaders, there's a new girl in town. She's called Sofia Boutella, and she's securing high-profile blockbuster roles a-plenty. She also scored the inimitable Cher Coulter as her A-list stylist (who just so happens to be our regular Ask a Stylist columnist), is already wearing pieces from the likes of Elie Saab and Alberta Ferreti, plus, she has the cutest micro-fringe we've ever seen. In fact, our friends over at Byrdie UK have discovered a new makeup icon, too—find out how to recreate Sofia Boutella's beauty looks.

Even though you may not be keen to discover you inner Trekkie-nerd for the forthcoming Star Trek Beyond movie, you will be keen to keep tabs on Algerian-born, dancer/actress/musician Sofia's latest fashion moves. Any girl who pulls a Kate Moss in the middle of a red carpet gets our vote: When Sofia recently wore a stunning black tulle gown that became severely entangled in her stilettos, a member of her team swept in and deftly saved the day, trimming the frock down and leaving the actress to style it out with a big grin. Major kudos for keeping so cool in the face of fashion adversity.

Scroll down to see Sofia's recent looks in action…

Style Notes: This black racer-backed jumpsuit is simple enough for Comic-Con but still interesting enough to get a fashion girl's approval.
