Tessa Thompson In Tingyue Jiang & Thom Browne – Build Series & ‘Sorry To Bother You’ New York Premiere

It would appear that Tessa Thompson is undergoing a change of direction style-wise.

Many of you weren’t onboard with her Rosie Assoulin MTV Awards look, so I’m intrigued to find out how you feel about these two latest offerings.

Build Series: If you watched the BOF Summit talk with Elizabeth Saltzman, Jason Bolden and Karla Welch, they all said in unison that they love discovering and breaking new designers. It appears that Tessa’s stylists, Wayman + Micah share that sentiment, as they outfitted Tessa in a dress by Parsons MFA graduate Tinygue Jiang. What I love about this piece is the imperfect elements, like the ripped shoulder and jagged edges. The look feels so raw and exposed, yet beautiful and fashion forward. Brother Vellies ‘Palms’ pump in ostrich feathers with plexiglass heel plus Dylanlex jewels completed the look, along with a single strand of white beads in her braids.

‘Sorry To Bother You’ New York Premiere: There are so many elements to her Thom Brown Spring 2018 look, that I’m not sure where to start. The lines are continually blurred between women’s and menswear, and no one does this better than Thom Browne. I love the semi-sheerness of the plaid fabric and the suspended skirt for a truly unique look. The point at which I found myself struggling was the accessories. The Thom Browne shoes barely pass, but the briefcase attempts to take this down a costumey path. Perhaps had the bag been smaller, I would’ve been on board. Carelle rings completed her look.

Vera Farmiga In Altuzarra – ‘Boundaries’ LA Premiere

Vera Farmiga made a return to the red carpet for the ‘Boundries’ premiere on Tuesday (June 19) in Hollywood, California.

Imagined in printed creponne, this breezy floor-length dress from Altuzarra’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection is an amalgamation of elegance and effortlessness.

Styled with strappy gold sandals for optimum eveningwear, I want to say something is missing, but with such a strong print I don’t think much else was needed.

Chloe Grace Moretz In Prada – ‘Come As You Are’ Champs-Élysées Film Festival Premiere

Chloe Grace Moretz attended the ‘Come As You Are’ premiere during 7th Champs Elysees Film Festival on Monday (June 18) in Paris, France.

Mixed prints is a hard one.

The result can either look fashion forward, or an uncoordinated mess.

For me, the key to “mixing prints” is to stick to a single theme or family (Ruth Negga recently demonstrated box prints).

Chloe’s might have opted for two totally different patterns as showcased on the runway, but I wonder if this would’ve ever been her natural instinct.

As much I was want to repel against this look, I admire the actress for being so bold by not playing it safe, especially when adding green velvet sandals to the mix.

Evangeline Lilly In Maticevski & Osman – ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Taiwan Press Conference & Premiere

Evangeline Lilly joined her co-star Paul Judd in Taipei, Taiwan to promote their latest film, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ last week.

Press Conference: The actress caused quite a buzz in her puff-sleeved mini-dress from Toni Matičevski’s Spring 2018 collection. Playful and yet fashion forward, I love how the Australian designer always manages to combining and balancing his love of art with fashion. From the texture, to the ruffled skirt and puff sleeves, what’s not to love?

Premiere: Things took a more graceful turn for the premiere, as the actress donned an emerald-green Osman Resort 2018 draped gown. It’s one of those pieces where the beauty is in the simplicity, however, Evangeline’s gold accessories took this look up several notches.

Ruth Negga In Rachel Comey – Premiere Of AMC’s ‘Preacher’ Season 3

The cast of AMC’s ‘Preacher’ attended the Season 3 premiere on Thursday (June 14) in Los Angeles, California, with Ruth Negga front and center.

The actress has been wearing a LOT of Louis Vuitton lately, so I was instantly refreshed by this Rachel Comey Resort 2019 offering.

One print just wasn’t enough for the designer, so in bring two together she created this dynamic piece.

While it doesn’t scream summer, it’s sartorially brilliant in mimicking the art of layering by print mixing.

Ruth’s uber cool look was granted some extra spice thanks to her chill-red accessories.
