Since Jenna Ortega hit the Met Gala in May, she’s been palpably missing from fashion events, much to fashion girlies’ chagrin. Now, almost five months later, the Wednesday star has finally pulled up to a style shindig — and at Paris Fashion Week, no less.

Though time may have passed, Ortega is still, thankfully, squarely in her Addams Family era — and she proved this on Tuesday while attending Christian Dior’s Spring 2024 show.

Jenna Ortega’s Nevermore Academy-Inspired Co-ords

As Dior’s ambassador, the actor sat front-row, decked out in the brand from head to toe. Her vibes were decidedly gothic, in an almost-black navy blazer (with that signature Dior cinched waist) and a matching pleated midi skirt that fell just above her ankles. The skirt suit was undeniably reminiscent of the Nevermore Academy uniforms, only much, much chicer.

It’s hardly the first time Ortega channeled her murder mystery-solving on-screen alter-ego. After Netflix’s Wednesday soared to the top of streaming charts last November, fans noticed that Ortega’s style DNA has always been eerily similar to that of her kooky character.

In the last year, however, the similarities have become even more apparent. Ortega has been leaning heavily into her goth girl sensibilities, often cloaking herself in punk-y all-black ensembles and school girl-style suits à la Nevermore. Her Dior ensemble hit on all the Wednesday elements.

Ortega paired the set with footwear that gave her ‘fit a gothic twist: black lace-up boots. Between the angular toe and thick black laces, the chunky shoe gave off clear steampunk vibes.

She Added An NSFW Twist

Veering from academia-inspired dress codes, Ortega took the look to NSFW (or, in Wednesday’s case, Not Safe For School) levels. She wore a gauzy black top that was utterly see-through under her unbuttoned blazer, intentionally revealing the black bra beneath.

As for the rest of her getup, Ortega expertly switched gears with accessories that added a touch of glamour to her look. Layered one atop the other, a smattering of earrings, rings, and long necklaces — all pieces from the French label’s Rose Des Vents collection sent the outfit into luxe territory.

Ortega starred in the collection’s campaign mere weeks ago, so it’s fitting that she’d choose adornments from the line for her PFW outing.

& Finished With A Dior Makeup Bag

Ortega topped off her look with a $2,750 Dior bag blanketed in the famous monogram. The choice was masterfully playful, as the luxe accessory actually isn’t a handbag at all, but a vanity case. Ortega merely removed the shoulder strap to turn it into an elegant top-handle bag, one of the year’s trendiest styles.

Her Makeup Was Bronze & Glowy

As for her glam, Ortega opted for a bronzed look which included peach blush, a subtle smoky eye, and neutral lipstick. Meanwhile, she swept her hair into an updo and let her trendy “shadow bangs” frame her face.
