Thandie Newton In Vintage Swee Lo – ‘Rouge’ New York Premiere

Thandie Newton In Vintage Swee Lo - 'Rouge' New York Premiere

Thandie Newton attended the New York premiere of her DirecTV ‘Rogue’ series, held at Tribeca Grand Screening Room in New York City yesterday evening.

The 40-year-old British actress dazzled in an 80s vintage beaded Swee Lo dress from The Gathering Goddess.

Her abstract sequinned dress, in tones of silver, gold, black and red, was styled with simple bi-colour silver-and-black Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps, a silver clutch and star-shaped silver earrings

As always, she is elegance personified, proving you don’t have to flash the flesh *coughs* Halle Berry *coughs* to make a bold, eye-catching statement on the red carpet.

I love the glossy red lip colour.

Thandie Newton In Louis Vuitton-2013 BAFTA Awards

Thandie Newton in Louis Vuitton - 2013 BAFTA AwardsThandie Newton must have been in a seductive mood, as she hit the red carpet at Sunday’s 2013 BAFTA Awards, held at London’s Royal Opera House.

The British actress followed the lace trend with her black Louis Vuitton halter gown.

She also capitalized on that frequently seen thigh-high slit, not to mention the sheer and solid obsession, as the itty bitty LBD was overlaid with see-through laciness.

Thandie paired the dress with a black handbag and gold Art-Deco-inspired earrings.

A bold red lip and tightly wound, side-swept curls finished this vamp-star look, although the overall effect may have translated more sleekly with a simple updo.

Thandie Newton In Isabel Marant – ‘One Billion Rising’ London Photocall

Thandie Newton In Isabel Marant - 'One Billion Rising' London Photocall

Thandie Newton worked a gamine chic look to promote One Billion Rising, a global movement aimed at ending violence towards women, at ICA in London yesterday.

The British actress looked effortlessly cool in a black Isabel Marant suit paired with a vintage flower print shirt.

Everything looked great…until my eyes hit the shoes.

The colour and style of these Burberry boots ruined this look for me.

The cropped pant’s silhouette fit awkwardly over these heavy-looking boots. I would have styled this suit with a pair of ankle boots, or better yet, a simple pointy toe pump to feminize this masculine ensemble.

Thandie Newton In Giles – 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Thandie Newton In Giles - 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Thandie Newton wore her second dress by a British designer at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in LA last night.

She sparkled in a Giles Spring 2013 mini dress, when everyone else donned a gown.

Thandie’s high-neck tulle cocktail dress, featuring all-over Swarovski crystal embellishments in a smashed-glass pattern, was styled with lilac ankle-strap peep-toes and a silver box clutch.

Had this dress been modified into a gown it would’ve been sensational.

Do you love this look or should Thandie have saved this for the after-show parties?

Thandie Newton In Temperley London – BAFTA Los Angeles 2013 Awards Season Tea Party

Thandie Newton In Temperley London  - BAFTA Los Angeles 2013 Awards Season Tea PartyIt was rather appropriate that Thandie Newton opted to wear a china blue shade to the BAFTA Los Angeles 2013 Awards Season Tea Party, held yesterday afternoon at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, California.

Likewise fitting, she picked British label Temperley London for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts event.

There was a distinct ’50s chic flair about this Spring 2013 look, updated for now with the sheer and solid trend.

The swingy organza skirt with its horizontal ribbon stripes was pretty, although the extra lining that was not present on the runway took away some of the enticement.

I couldn’t help but wish that Thandie had picked one of the more vibrant crimson moments from the collection—and that she had done something different with her un-styled hair.

Thandie Newton In Jewel by Lisa – Hope Rising! Benefit Concert

Thandie Newton attended the Hope Rising! Benefit Concert at the Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto, Canada on Wednesday evening.

I instantly fell in love with her colourful Jewel by Lisa Spring 2012 embellished jumpsuit with an crocheted yoke, seeing as I am a fan of jumpsuits and colour.

Lisa Folawiyo is known for using traditional African fabrics, creating modern silhouettes with those fabrics and westernizing the look through the use of embellishments, and this is a classic example of her unique work.

Thandie fell in love with the designers work when she was in Nigeria earlier this year filming ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’.

Her modern look was styled with Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ metallic silver pumps and a metallic box clutch.

As per usual, she’s still stunning without makeup and why should she wear any when she has the most perfect skin – must be due to those Olay products she’s been promoting.

A simple top-knot completed her look.
