Euphoria actress and this year’s newest ‘it’ girl Sydney Sweeney attended the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards in an outfit that was the epitome of the Y2K aesthetic.

Sweeney, a recently named brand ambassador for Miu Miu, wore a look by the brand that featured, most prominently, a micro mini skirt covered in pink crystals that had fans raving.

The skirt featured two thick side buckles, an upper-thigh baring slit, and in the true spirit of the early 2000s, was low-rise.

Belted micro mini skirts were a staple of Miu Miu’s spring-summer 2022 collection. They gained immense popularity with netizens and were extensively covered by the likes of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar for their length alone.

Miu Miu reprised this trend with Sweeney, making the skirt the look’s statement piece. The glitz was only accentuated by the actress’ strappy platform shoes in a metallic silver, coupled with a studded heel.

Sweeney paired her bottom with a plain cropped polo. The shirt’s collar added a preppy charm to the look but its open buttons paired with a peek of her matching crystal-decorated bra put a twist on the girl-next-door image.

The entire monochrome pink ensemble, paired with Sweeney’s iconic blonde hair made her resemble a Barbie doll. Her pink rings brought a further touch of sparkle that were a welcome addition.

Sweeney’s matching pink nails and simple but boldly outlined eyeliner look made her appear all the more doll-like.

GET THE LOOK: With the enduring popularity of the Y2K aesthetic, recreating Sweeney’s look for less is easy. Her girlish ensemble is perfect for the summer and for everyday wear, off the carpet.

You can get both a cropped polo shirt and a low-rise micro mini skirt from H&M.
