I would like to start off by saying if you haven’t seen The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix yet, stop reading this (just kidding, please keep reading, I need friends) and go binge it right now. Like seriously.
After being in a trance watching this amazing show about chess (a sentence I never thought I’d say tbh), I did what pretty much everyone does after discovering a new celebrity: obsess over how amazing they are.
So in comes Anya Taylor-Joy just being so amazing by existing. Imagine looking this flawless just walking.
If I tried to pull this outfit off, I would literally look like a small child who decided to wear all of her mother’s clothes to feel like an “adult”.
And she knows the Vulcan salute? Yes, yes I will live long and prosper knowing Anya Taylor-Joy has graced my life with her awesomeness.
Why does this pose look like something I would have done in middle school with my friends as an unironic photoshoot for Myspace? Okay, she’d still be in my Top 8.
Even her dog can’t deny how cute she is.
Here she is just sitting casually like we all do, nbd.
The way her face perfectly captures how I feel about 2020 still not being over is *chef’s kiss* beautiful.
How can one resist not wanting to be her friend?! Do we think she’s taking applications for friends? I’m asking for me.
Why yes, I’d love to start a book club together. Thanks for asking, Anya!
Honestly, this is just so cute.
Imagine not looking like a lumberjack in overalls. I didn’t even think it was possible until Anya.
Or be cool enough to pull off a bear costume so well.
The angsty queen I always dreamt of being during my emo scene phase.
Posing with plants in an ~artistic~ way is my dream aesthetic ngl.
In conclusion, this is my official request to be Anya Taylor-Joy’s newest friend. Suddenly I’m really into chess even if I don’t get it at all.
