Since it comes between fashion seasons, awards season is an opportunity to see which runway trends are having staying power, and at last Sunday’s edition, reflective textures and architectural forms reigned supreme. Jennifer Lopez, Greta Gerwig, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Florence Pugh wore light-catching gowns in bold colors. Lupita Nyong’o, Constance Wu, and Saoirse Ronan and many more opted for striking all-over patterns. But the person who combined all of these ideas into one look, and thus was a serious nominee for best-dressed, was Thomasin McKenzie, who wore a strapless pale pink Rodarte dress with a feather pattern and a slight peplum. In the last few months, the 19-year-old star of Jojo Rabbit has emerged as a new style star because of her ability to combine trends from of-the-moment designers with classicism and youthful joy. At the Britannia Awards last Friday, she wore a lacy, pale blue, formfitting dress by Brock Collection, who have built a reputation for these structured, feminine, floor-sweeping dresses.

Remarkably, it has about the same vibe as it did back in early 2018, before she became a name to know after a memorable turn in director Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace. With one huge exception, of course: now every third photo or so is a red-carpet shot featuring a glammed-up version of the same playful, makeup-less young woman you see in the other shots. On some red carpets, she seems a little closer to the McKenzie you see when she’s off-duty. To an Entertainment Weekly party at TIFF, she wore a youthful, sparkly minidress with puffy sleeves that seemed less formal, and she opted for a Marco de Vincenzo suit at Jojo Rabbit’s London premiere. Even when she deviates from her more classically feminine norm, she still opts for well-tailored, slightly throwback outfits to the extent that it already feels possible to define a “Thomasin M
