She skyrocketed to fame starring in the award-winning Netflix series based on a chess prodigy, The Queen’s Gambit.

And Anya Taylor-Joy was intent on catching up with friends for a low-key night out in the trendy Los Feliz area of Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Anya looked fashion forward wearing a black leather jacket and matching skirt, with a massive scarf wrapped around her neck.

She added inches to her petite frame with a pair of knee-high patent leather booties and carried a white canvas bag by her side.

Her platinum blonde tresses were tied back into a low bun and she swiped a deep red shade across her lips before her smoke break.

While Anya didn’t take home the Lead Actress trophy at last month’s Emmy awards, The Queen’s Gambit ended up being one of the evening’s big winners, taking home 11 Emmys from its 18 nominations.

The bulk of those were Creative Arts Emmy wins from the week before, but writer–director Scott Frank won the award for Outstanding Directing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie at the main ceremony, and the final award of the night, Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series, also went to The Queen’s Gambit.

And Anya will soon set her sights on the animated world of entertainment as she was cast alongside Chris Pratt for a new Nintendo-themed flick.
