Amber Heard attended the premiere of Aquaman in London last night and chose to accessorise her Valentino couture gown with a very surprising accessory. The actress appeared to be channelling her oceanic character, Mera, in the DC Comics movie, wearing a headpiece that resembled a swimming cap.

Heard chose a green brocade gown from Valentino’s autumn/winter 2018 couture collection with a plunging neckline and cut-out detail at the side. She accessorised with antique Victorian jewellery, including earrings made up of turquoise and pearl gems, which are available to buy from Beladora.

Heard then added a couture headpiece by Valentino to the red-carpet look, which her stylist, Karla Welch, mentioned on Instagram, calling it: “The most beautiful swim cap you’ll ever find.”


The piece was a nod to the character Heard plays in the film, who is the love interest of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman and lives in the underwater city of Atlantis.

The cap was shown with the gown on the catwalk in July and, although many would have chosen not to wear the full look, Welch explained on Instagram that because of the film Heard was promoting, they chose to style the ensemble with the unexpected accessory: “And duh, it’s the Aquaman movie, so of course we went for the swim cap!”

Heard was joined on the red carpet by her co-star, Momoa, who went for an unusually low-key ensemble, wearing a leather jacket, jeans and boots.
