Chanel & Charles Finch Pre-Bafta Dinner

Lovely ladies celebrated awards season at the Chanel and Charles Finch Pre-Bafta Dinner at Mark’s Club on Saturday (February 17) in London, England, where they were outfitted in charming Chanel pieces for the occasion.

Tessa Thompson: The BAFTA Rising Star Award nominee looked sweet in a Chanel Spring 2018 ensemble with its white and yellow tweed evoking a cheerful summer sentiment. The jovial mood was kept up with her twisted topknot, white shoes and red lip.

Poppy Delevingne: The model also embraced the designer’s signature fabric with a seafoam and pale blue Spring 2018 ensemble. The silhouette and chevron seams are quiet details so it was wise of her to not overdo the accessories. Like Tessa, her high updo added youthful fun to the tailored pieces.

Greta Gerwig: The ‘Lady Bird’ director, who is nominated for best Original Screenplay at the BAFTAs, swept me away with her Chanel Spring 2018 dress. It’s playful with the tinsel-like fringing creating captivating dimension. My only gripe is the black shoes feel a bit heavy against the rest of the ensemble.

Tessa Thompson In Naeem Khan – ‘Annihilation’ LA Premiere

For me, Tessa Thompson was the star attraction on the red carpet for the ‘Annihilation’ premiere on Tuesday (February 13) in Westwood, California, where she joined Janelle Monae, Gina Rodriguez and Natalie Portman.

We all know Tessa as a bit of a fashion daredevil who likes to take risks, but much like the ‘Thor’ premiere, she showcased her softer side for this premiere.

Soft, yet still oozing with plenty of sartorial grace.

My reaction was two-fold:

1. Thankful she opted to line the gown and;

2. Thankful she didn’t strip any of the beguiling details from this look.

It’s not easy to make a girlie girl gown look cool, but Tessa managed to nail it once again.

Graziela Gems and EFFY Jewelry completed her look.

Tessa Thompson In Elie Saab – ‘Black Panther’ World Premiere

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ star Tessa Thompson showed her support for Marvel Studios’ world premiere of ‘Black Panther’ on Monday (January 29) in Hollywood, California.

We’re so used to Elie Saab’s glamorous dresses, but on this occasion he conjures up another fantasy with this tunic paired with beaded cigarette trousers from the Pre-Fall 2018 collection.

I love the contrast between the delicate tunic with the ultra modern dazzling trousers. I immediately felt that the look feels so refreshing from Elie Saab while not stepping too far away from the norm.

Christian Louboutin ‘Nosy’ pointy toe pumps, a Roger Vivier velvet ‘Cigarette’ bag and jewels from Sara Weinstock and Graziela Gems completed her look

Tessa Thompson In Lingua Franca & Altuzarra – Women at Sundance Brunch

Tessa Thompson showed her support for females in the film industry at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, attending the Women at Sundance Brunch on Monday (January 22) in Park City, Utah.

The actress wore a Lingua Franca sweater which honored female directors Ava DuVernay, Greta Gerwig, Patty Jenkins and Dee Rees.

She elevated the piece with an Altuzarra Spring 2018 skirt and blazer — the latter being removed for some photos. The skirt’s uneven hem with button detailing creates dynamic movement while playing off the cursive font of the top.

There is a harmonious finish with the red and black color palette which speaks to the united message of the knit and the event.

This marks her second custom Lingua Franca sweater. She previously wore a black ‘Time’s Up’ sweater at the festival.

I am intrigued to see what she will wear next as she proves how important fashion can be at promoting a cause.

Tessa Thompson In Belstaff & Solace London – IMDb Studio & ‘Sorry To Bother You’ Sundance Film Festival Premiere

Tessa Thompson continued her rounds at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday January 20.

In the IMDb Studio, Tessa wore a Belstaff Spring 2018 look with Wolford tights and Alchimia Di Ballin ‘Nix’ booties. The editorial look would fall flat in most real-life settings, so Tessa was wise to chose it for somewhere as artistic as Sundance. Adding the metallic silver booties is inspired and shows just the right amount of fashion prowess.

Tessa Thompson In Ellery, Coach & Lingua Franca – Sundance Film Festival

Tessa Thompson has also been at the Sundance Film Festival, where she attended Twitter and ARRAY’s #HereWeAre brunch at the #TwitterLodge on Friday (January 19) in Park City, Utah. And, earlier today (January 20), she was bundled up at the Respect Rally there.

#HereWeAre Brunch: What I love about Tessa is that when she wears a trend-forward look, she fully commits to it. That was ever so the case in this burnt-orange Ellery Resort 2018 vinyl look, styled with a floral silk blouse, that had retro undertones of the ’70s. Some may have left it at that, but she brought in more mod flavour with those Solace London ‘Sawyer’ shoes from the Spring 2018 collection. You’ll likely remember the white version of the sculptural shoes that she wore last month—and that Rita Ora wore this Ellery trench, too.

Respect Rally: Sweet—and statement-making—Tessa donned the timely and event-appropriate Lingua Franca ‘Times Up’ sweater with a furry, plush Coach jacket to stay warm in the snowy scene. I love the beret for an added bit of chic flair.

2018 Golden Globe Awards Parties

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards were a study in many glamorous renditions of the colour black. And, for the most part, the Globes after parties followed suit with the hue taking on all measures of late-night allure.

Diane Kruger: After a regally glamorous entrance at the Globes, Diane was at the InStyle and Warner Bros. post-party, where she imbued black, cropped trousers with a bit of creamy lace in this Alexander McQueen Spring 2018 ensemble. I have a feeling that the tattered, asymmetrical effect of the lace bustier top will turn some away from the more experimental look.

Tessa Thompson: At HBO’s official after party in LA, Tessa suited up in an Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2017 Couture menswear-inspired look that delivered plenty of intriguing edge when styled with the MATEO jewelry and bauble-accented sandals. I was happy for the sheer shirting underneath to balance the boxier shape of the tuxedo blazer.

Nina Dobrev: The actress flaunted her toned abs at the InStyle party in this Ralph Lauren cutout gown. Even with the futuristic liquid-silver paneling, something about the look read a bit dated. Alexis Bittar choker completed her look.
