Rachel Zegler may be a relative Hollywood newcomer, but her red carpet style already has the makings of a seasoned star. The New Jersey-native rose to prominence in 2021 with her role in Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of
West Side Story—which earned her a host of accolades and a Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical. Since, Zegler went on star alongside Lucy Liu, Helen Mirren, and Zachary Levi in Shazam! Fury of the Gods and plays a lead role in The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes.
Throughout her time in the spotlight, the film star has established a red carpet style that blends Old Hollwyood glamour with a tinge of modern edge. She’s formed a special relationship Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior—wearing the designer’s dreamy gowns for a range of premieres—and has sported labels like Michael Kors, Ellie Saab, and Alexander McQueen too. Below, a look back at Rachel Zegler’s best red carpet style moments.
