Filmmaker Nia DaCosta Was the Year’s Breakout Red Carpet Star

Directors like Janicza Bravo and Coppola have inspired DaCosta to experiment with her own look. “I remember seeing these behind-the-scenes photos of Sofia Coppola on the set of Marie Antoinette, where she’s wearing a mini skirt,” says DaCosta. “I was like, ‘Oh, you can still wear whatever you want.’ Just because you’re a woman director doesn’t mean you have to be a drag king on set. That image of her gave me a lot of freedom.”

Of course, DaCosta’s approach to day-to-day style isn’t quite as exuberant as what her red carpet approach is. When it comes to casual wear, DaCosta says she enjoys wearable staples with a cool, modern slant. “In the summer, I wear a lot of dresses and sheer stuff,” she says. “In the fall, I really do love a sweater. I have a couple of sweaters from The Row, and they’re perfect. Right now I’m also really into turtleneck bodysuits and jean shirts, and boots by Chloé and Acne Studios.”

DaCosta is also a big collector of vintage and archival designer, citing favorite labels such as Alexander McQueen and Issey Miyake. “I just picked up this really fucking awesome Alaïa two-piece when I was in Paris for fashion week,” says DaCosta. “It’s a hunter green lace—the purple version of it was worn by Naomi Campbell on the runway, back in the day.” She finds such gems at stores like Sleeper in L.A., or Relic in London—“when I’m trying to blow up my whole life and bank account.”

As for what you can expect DaCosta to be wearing in 2024, when awards season kicks off? She’ll be busy filming Hedda—but she does have her sights set on even more fashion experimentation. “I love what Daniel Roseberry is doing at Schiaparelli,” says DaCosta. “I’m trying to be more adventurous with clothes; It’s really fun to be someone different for a day.”
