This Actress Proves You Can Have 2 Personalities When It Comes to Style

Alicia Vikander is, in many ways, a classic dresser: The Swedish actress’s go-to style involves a lot of black, neat tailoring and timeless accessories. But while she might not play prisoner to flash-in-the-pan trends, her style’s definitely not boring. She’s one of the most exciting actresses to watch during award season, as she truly embraces the fun of dressing up.

You can never predict what Vikander will wear on the red carpet. Who would have guessed she’d dress up in a yellow ball gown à la Belle (her favourite Disney princess) from Beauty and the Beast at the Oscars? She’s long been courted by the big design houses (most notably Louis Vuitton), and she’s one of Nicolas Ghesquière’s muses; he’s dressed her for some of the most significant moments in her career.

However, while her Met Gala style might be all about pattern-mixing and sequins, her weekend looks are much more understated; she tends to lean on chunky knitwear, jeans and low heels. And here at Who What Wear, where we appreciate both schools of dressing, Alicia Vikander is a major source of outfit envy. Keep scrolling for some of our favourite looks from the actress to date.
