I mean, what could go wrong?

After an evening celebrating the film—complete with a special screening and immersive after-party that put its attendees in an almost exact replica of Lily’s ominous mansion—we sat down with Cooke and Taylor-Joy in Los Angeles to talk all things Thoroughbreds and play a quick game of Crazy or Cool: Fashion Edition. It’s an interview you don’t want to miss! Keep reading for more.
