Sydney Sweeney Channels the Coquette Aesthetic in Lace Richard Quinn Dress for ‘Immaculate’ Premiere at SXSW

Sydney Sweeney took the coquette trend for a spin on Tuesday while attending the premiere of her new film “Immaculate” at SXSW in Austin.

The actress’ custom Richard Quinn dress featured an off-the-shoulder neckline and a thigh-high slit. She also wore a pair of matching pumps by the British label, which were overlaid with lace stockings. Sweeney completed her look with pearl earrings from Octavia Elizabeth and diamond rings by Jennifer Meyer.

Stylist Molly Dickson, who also counts Lana Del Rey and Lucy Hale as clients, dressed Sweeney for the occasion.

Hairdresser Glen Oropeza styled the actress’ blond bob with side bangs, while makeup artist Melissa Hernandez gave her smokey eyeliner and a nude lip.

Coquette styling is proving popular this year, with full skirts, lace, florals and pale hues taking the fashion world by storm. During the spring 2024 season, designers including Simone Rocha, Richard Quinn and Valentino embraced feminine flairs, sending romantic silhouettes down the runway.

“Immaculate,” out March 22, follows a nun’s journey to a secluded convent in the Italian countryside. Sweeney was drawn to the project after auditioning for the film a decade ago.

“It never got made, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it,” Sweeney told WWD last week. “I kept dreaming up how I’d want to film it, the cinematography, everything. I would call my agent almost every year being like, ‘Whatever happened to this?’ And then I thought, ‘Maybe I should take this into my own hands and see if I can make it myself.’”

After acquiring rights to the script under her production banner, Fifty-Fifty Films, Sweeney assisted in casting her fellow “White Lotus” alum, Simona Tabasco. One of the show’s executive producers, David Bernard, also produced “Immaculate.”

While Sweeney was raised Catholic, the actress didn’t take any inspiration from her upbringing to play Cecilia, whose devout beliefs drive her to become a nun.

“I grew up in a family that supported and believed in whatever their children wanted to support and believe,” Sweeney explained. “[Catholicism] wasn’t something was forced or pushed onto me or my brother.”
