‘Fahrenheit 451’ New York Premiere

The ‘Fahrenheit 451’ New York premiere on Tuesday (May 8) featured some bold fashion statements.

Tessa Thompson: The ‘Westworld’ actress was yet another one to fall for the spell of an unlined Christian Dior dress. I’m sure many are bored of the revealing skirts. Just taking into account her outfit, there was an intriguing mood with the play of the prim collared style with the black undergarments. The dusty purple frock with rich burgundy shoes was unexpected but most striking.

Michael B. Jordan: The actor looked dashing in Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. The subtle sheen and night sky blue of the suit were debonair. The touches of black added to the sharp finish, but the roll neck is making it veer towards being too wintery.

Sofia Boutella: Another one in a sheer style, she was clad in Alberta Ferretti Fall 2018. On the runway, the lighting didn’t make it look quite so naked, but on the red carpet we see just how revealing it is. It feels better suited to a performance piece.

Tessa Thompson In Thom Browne – 2018 Met Gala

Tessa Thompson made her debut at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

While soft, ethereal silhouettes were a go-to for many, the ‘Westworld’ actress went in the complete opposite direction with a dramatically structured Thom Browne ensemble. The corset and padded hips offer plenty of allure, while the oversized jacket counters the voluptuous femininity of the gown.

She wore the embellished topper on one shoulder, both and draped to the side so one could see the glimpse of the choker and pearly button details snaking down her back. It was a look made for the occasion as everywhere we glanced there was a new intriguing detail.

Tessa Thompson In Christian Dior – ‘Little Woods’ Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

Tessa Thompson joined Lily James at the ‘Little Woods’ Tribeca Film Festival premiere on Saturday (April 21) in New York City.

I’m sure many may recognize this patchwork Christian Dior Fall 2018 skirt as a variation on the dress we recently saw Sienna Miller wear.

However, I have a feeling that Tessa’s look might resonate more successfully with you, as she brought such an innate sense of modern, cool-girl style to the quirky mishmash of plaid and ’60s-inspired patchwork.

On this occasion, I even loved the slight rebellion of the Dior bra peeking beneath her sheer blouse, as a Diorquake belt and Dior boots wrapped up the look in similar stead to its runway presentation.

She accessorised with an L’Afshar clutch and Bliss Lau jewels along with a dynamic, magenta lip and curls that brought such personality to the ensemble.

Tessa Thompson In Fendi – 4th Annual Veuve Clicquot Carnaval

Tessa Thompson was also at the 4th Annual Veuve Clicquot Carnaval on Saturday (March 10) in Miami, Florida, joining Eiza Gonzalez.

Relying on a quirky sense of girlish charms, this Fendi Spring 2018 cutout, cold-shoulder dress was nothing if not playfully spirited—especially when styled with the label’s socks-shoes and the ‘Kan I’ bag.

I have a feeling, though, that it will be the parachute-cargo effect of the skirt and its ribbons that might be the sticking point for some.

Tessa Thompson In Ralph & Russo Couture, Alberta Ferretti & Rodarte – Pre-Oscars Events

Much like Danai Gurira, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ star Tessa Thompson has been busy attending pre-Oscar events in LA.

2018 Essence Black Women In Hollywood Oscars Luncheon: Was this dazzling Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture dress a bit OTT for a luncheon? Some might say yes, but I would say no. Evoking flapper girls of the Jazz Age, the look serves up elegance rather than over the top pageantry. Piaget jewels and white Christian Louboutin pumps help ground the look.

Vanity Fair and Lancome Paris Toast Women in Hollywood: I loved the 80s nostalgia imbued within her gold lame Alberta Ferretti Fall 2018 look which stayed on the right side of retro. With gold Giuseppe Zanotti platforms continuing the retro vibe, the Adeam white bag felt very much out of place.

‘A Beautiful Future’ Campaign with Fem the Future: With her Rodarte black, fuschia and yellow ostrich feather coat taking centre stage, the actress opted for simple separates as not to overcook the look. Casadei boots plus a stylish Cult Gaia ‘Lilleth’ tote, defined by its sculptural approach to design, added a fashion forward edge.

On Wednesday (February 28), Chanel hosted a cocktail party to debut the Chanel Beauty House in celebration of @WeLoveCoco, a new instagram community dedicated to user-generated beauty content.

Hollywood influencers showcased an array of styles from classic to more contemporary.

Ava Phillippe: This fresh take on Chanel signature boucle was injected with plenty of youthful flare thanks to her colourful accessories.

Kristen Stewart: While I love that the Chanel ambassador made this Pre-Fall 2018 look her own, a part of me wishes she kept the runway knitted boots.

Mackenzie Foy: Colour-blocking has never felt so fun and vibrant. Like Ava, Mackenzie’s accessories enhance the look.
