Anya Taylor-Joy, who portrayed Princess Peach in the recently released The Super Mario Bros. Movie, arrived on the red carpet wearing a pink racing suit made by Dior. The suit resembled the character’s racing costume, complete with gloves, a belt and boots. Taylor-Joy has been a Dior brand ambassador since 2021, along with actress Nina Dobrev and Blackpink’s Jisoo.

The actress was filming the Furiosa prequel film with director George Miller just before recording voiceover for Peach – both characters ride motorcycles.


Taylor-Joy said that she only wanted to play the princess if the character had her own agency and acted as a leader. She continued, recalling that she got emotional seeing the film when she thought of the kids who were going to see this version of a princess.

The actress also features as a younger version of Charlize Theron‘s character, Furiosa, from the 2015 film Mad Max: Fury Road. She explained on The Graham Norton Show late last year that doing stunts for the movie was her first time driving a car.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie is based on the iconic Nintendo game and also stars Chris Pratt, Jack Black, Charlie Day and Keegan-Michael Key. You can catch it in theaters this week.
