On Saturday, Maya Hawke joined her stranger things castmates for the premiere of the highly anticipated fourth season of Netflix’s hit show. The actress, who plays Robin, wore a stunning Christian Dior gown, which if you look closely says a lot about the show’s upcoming plot.
“The dress tells a story,” Hawke confirmed in an email interview with ELLE.com. “The villain we’re settling into this season stranger things it’s the demobats, and there are all kinds of crazy monsters. They open up the lore of it all and there is a dark menacing force named Vecna who is like the devil. The robe has ‘diablo’ on it, and I feel like it has Vecna’s spirit as well as the helper monsters all over it. (Hawke also carried a tarot card-type Le Diable pouch.)
Five people worked on Hawke’s long strapless dress at the workshop. It is entirely embroidered with silk thread, sequins and applications of silk fabrics to create the pattern.
Hawke worked with Dior to create the first look, based on a previous runway dress. “Many years ago I saw the runway photos of this dress and I really fell in love with it and wanted to wear it,” she said. “There is a lot of symbolism through the dress that relates to the show. I really like the show. After working on it for almost three years, I wanted to show it through my look. Dior has been so supportive in helping to redo a dress from a past season for this. I wanted to do everything with black and red nails.
When Hawke got the finished dress, everything was fine. “When I first saw him, I was so happy,” she recalls. ” That suits me perfectly. It’s exactly what I wanted to wear that night.
“I had such a fun time [getting ready to go]”, Hawke added. “I got ready at my mom’s house. We took pictures on the piano and I took pictures with my little sister. She even touched up my hair a little. My mom [Uma Thurman] gave me advice on how to stand. Hawke’s makeup was done by Gianpaolo Ceciliato using Dior Beauty products, and Peter Butler did his hair for the evening. Nail artist Mo Quinn was behind Hawke’s black and red manicure.
This experience working with Dior only reinforced Hawke’s budding love for style. “I’ve learned so much about fashion over the past two years,” she said. “I learned that I really care. The more love and attention you put into it, the more you get out of it.
