Thandie Newton In Rodarte – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ London Screening

After a packed schedule of several TV appearances, Thandie Newton ended her day with a special screening of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story,’ to celebrate the film’s BFI Film Academy trainees at BFI Southbank this evening (May 23) in London.

The actress wore a Rodarte Fall 2018 dress full of the moody romanticism for which the brand is known.

The bold red frock spliced with hyper-feminine details such as the butterfly embroidery and tired skirt is beautiful, but sparkling tulle underlay was tricky in the wrong light. Thankfully I found a flattering picture.

If I was to nitpick, I do wish the straps had been a tad shorter for the bodice to sit a bit higher, but all in all, Thandie sold this look to me. I’m not sure many others could.

Thandie Newton In Johanna Ortiz & Duro Olowu – Despierta America & ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Photocall

Thandie Newton continues to showcase her love of prints after dazzling in Vivienne Westwood Couture at Cannes. First, she paid a visit to Despierta America in Miami, Florida on Tuesday (May 8). Then she attended the ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ London photocall on Friday (May 18).

Despierta America: It’s hard not to smile at this Johanna Ortiz Spring 2018 dress with its layers and vivacious print. Critics might say the graphic shoes distract from the frock, but they make it more than just another pretty summer dress. Adjusting the straps on the necklace gave it a flirtier finish.

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ London Photocall: Taking a more geometric direction, the actress wore a Duro Olowu Fall 2018 style. The designer is known for his energetic prints. The way this look seamlessly blends so many styles shows why. The white shoes and soft beauty look add to the joie de vivre feeling.

Thandie Newton In Vivienne Westwood Couture for The Green Carpet Challenge – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Following the photocall, I was excited to see what Thandie Newton would be serving up at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ this evening (May 15).

The British actress wore a custom Vivienne Westwood Couture gown, printed with images of Thandie’s personal Star Wars figurine collection.

Each character was photographed by Christian Hogstedt and was layered over the iconic Vivienne Westwood ‘Absence of Roses’ print.

The print was created especially as an homage to Thandie’s first appearance in the motion-picture franchise.

If you were thinking, “this is just another standard Westwood dress,” hopefully the back story with encourage you to look again at this gown with fresh eyes.

Thandie Newton In Valentino – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Thandie Newton captured the breezy spirit of the Cannes Film Festival at the ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ photocall on Tuesday (May 15).

The majority were delighted by her Richard Quinn floral confection at the Virgin TV BAFTA Television Awards and I’m hoping this Valentino Fall 2018 look is as well received.

It’s the sort of ensemble that demonstrates how the daywear at the festival can be just as striking as the dramatic evening gowns.

With its vivid print and soft shapes, it has a carefree glamorous sentiment and her styling played perfectly into it.

Thandie Newton In Richard Quinn – Virgin TV BAFTA Television Awards

After her dazzling moment at the ‘SOLO: A Story Wars Story’ LA premiere, I was very much looking forward to seeing Thandie Newton again. She was back on the red carpet at the Virgin TV BAFTA Television Awards on Sunday (May 13) in London, alongside Vanessa Kirby and Claire Foy.

This Richard Quinn gown was a vivacious look. It had a summery sentiment while still being formal enough for the occasion.

The asymmetrical gathered silhouette had a playful feel that was soft yet structured. It was dramatic enough that she didn’t need the coordinating pieces, although, I could see her successfully carrying off the arm covering.

Do you miss the gloves?

Thandie Newton In Christian Dior Haute Couture – ‘SOLO: A Star Wars Story’ LA Premiere

I’m always intrigued to see what Thandie Newton will wear. I was awestruck when she stepped out at the ‘SOLO: A Star Wars Story’ LA premiere on Thursday (May 10), joining Phoebe Waller-BridgeEmilia Clarke and Alexandra Daddario.

Those wanting a captivating statement will no doubt be enthralled with her Spring 2018 dress from Christian Dior Haute Couture.

Details abound from the caged neckline to the tufted sleeves to the sparkling clips in her hair. It’s a look that you want to see from all angles.

The oversized embellishment enhances the spellbinding effect further and I find myself completely captivated.

An Edie Parker clutch completed the head-turning style.
