Renate Reinsve’s playful Scandinavian style stands out on the red carpet

Anyone who has seen the hilarious, heartbreaking and now Oscar-nominated the worst person in the world knows that Renate Reinsve is a born movie star. The slyly subversive take on the romantic comedy formula follows Reinsve’s character, a thirty-something Norwegian woman named Julie, over a four-year period as she falls in and out of love with two very different men, she muses. about the various paths of his life. she could get along with either of them, and questions the typical milestones of marriage and motherhood. But over the course of the film, what shines the brightest is Reinsve’s defiant and endlessly charming performance as Julie, and unsurprisingly, it earned her the best actress award at the Cannes Film Festival when it opened last summer. past.

Reinsve, who has a decade-long but relatively low-profile career in her native Norway, told interviewers she was almost ready to pack it all up and become a carpenter before accepting the role. We’re thankful she didn’t. As her star has risen over the past year, she has taken it all the way to the Oscars, where the worst person in the world It is nominated in both the Best International Feature Film and Best Original Screenplay categories.

Along the way, Reinsve has proven she’s a red carpet force to be reckoned with, refining her particular eye for elegant gowns and boxy tailoring that speaks to her Scandinavian roots, but always adding a softly idiosyncratic touch. She just took the sleeveless Chanel tweed coat and red and gold flared pants she wore to the Deauville Film Festival last year after her Cannes win; or the dramatically draped Grecian-style Khaite gown she wore to an awards show in New York earlier this month, or Proenza Schouler’s fresh-off-the-runway black dress with red-accented cutouts that she wore for an appearance on Late night with Seth Meyers in January.

It’s no surprise that Reinsve has become a recurring face at Louis Vuitton shows and events, with Nicolas Ghesquière’s polished eclecticism proving perfect for the actor’s already well-defined tastes. After first attending a dinner for the famed French fashion house during her time in Cannes last summer, she then appeared front row last October in a red and black speckled turtleneck with high-waisted shorts. and a pair of stompy, embellished boots: a red carpet-worthy redux of the tomboy style her on-screen counterpart Julie loves. Earlier this month, he also showed up at the brand’s fall/winter 2022 show in a tuxedo jacket and tailored sweatpants. At BAFTA soon after, he opted for a sleeveless military-style Louis Vuitton jacket and leather pants.

Finally, her stylist Karla Welch, whose name you might recognize from her work with Justin Bieber, Tracee Ellis Ross and Sarah Paulson, posted a shot of Reinsve in a sleek twisted black suit with flared pants from The Attico and a simple Ana Khouri ear cuff. to give it a more avant-garde touch. It was Reinsve’s style formula in a nutshell: a sharp silhouette with an offbeat finishing touch to accentuate the look and give it an unexpected extra edge. We may be rooting for Reinsve’s movie as the Oscars approach this weekend, but we’re hoping he’ll also take on a few new roles while he’s in Hollywood, if only to get more of his red-carpet-style highlights.
