Amber Heard showed off her knack for wearing fancy headwear on the red carpet when she attended the London premiere of “Aquaman” on Monday.

The actress went with a flowing green Valentino gown from the label’s Fall 2018 collection for the event. The dress featured embroidered detailing throughout and a cutout design on the sides. While the dress was certainly eye-catching with its intricate pattern, her headpiece seemed to steal the show.

It even featured a chin strap to bring the design all the way around Heard’s face. She accessorized with a single earring on her left ear, and finished the look with platform heels by Brian Atwood.
