Margaret Qualley's Red Carpet Style: 'Poor Things' To 'Drive-Away Dolls'

As the daughter of the actress Andie MacDowell and model Paul Qualley, Margaret Qualley has always been in the spotlight. The star was attending galas and premieres, usually as her mother’s adorable plus one, while most were busy with primary school—something that, seemingly, inspired Qualley to pursue her own career in acting. Since her most formative years, Qualley has since gone on to land roles in Palo Alto with Gia Coppola, Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things, and the comedy thriller Drive-Away Dolls.

Throughout it all, the actress has established a personal red carpet style that has evolved from child prodigy to Hollywood starlet in her own right. Qualley has formed a special bond with the house of Chanel—first walking the brand’s runway as a teenager and closing their couture proceedings as the “Chanel bride” on multiple occasions—as well as other top labels like Alberta Ferretti and Miu Miu. As a Chanel ambassador, Qualley is almost always outfitted in the brand, sporting their ballet flats and hyper-feminine pieces with ease. Below, a look back at Margaret Qualley’s best red carpet moments.
