Claire Foy stepped out with co-star Andrew Garfield for the world premiere of their latest film "Breathe" at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday.

The actress, who is known for playing a young Queen Elizabeth II on Netflix's "The Crown," was almost unrecognizable as she walked the TIFF red carpet and attended the film's after-party at Toronto's RBC House.

We're used to seeing the 33-year-old with lightened hair, which is why we were surprised to see her switch back to dark-brown locks and wear it in a sleek up do for TIFF.

For reference, here's what Foy looks like in her new film "Breathe."

Regardless, Foy looked like a '90s dream decked out in a spaghetti strapped blue velvet dress as she posed for photographers at the film festival. Wearing her hair au natural, we couldn't help but notice that the actress looks strikingly similar to "Gilmore Girls" alum Alexis Bledel, who is just as ageless as Foy.

"Breathe" is Andy Serkis' directorial debut and tells the story of real-life couple Robin and Diana Cavendish, played by Garfield and Foy. The couple fought for disability rights in the 1960s after Robin got polio and became paralyzed from the neck down.

Following the film's premiere at Toronto's Roy Thompson Hall, the stars, along with director Serkis, attended an exclusive after-party hosted by RBC House.
