Tessa Thompson Front Row @ Giulietta, Jenny Packham & Rodarte’s Fall 2015 Shows

Tessa Thompson Front Row @ Giulietta, Jenny Packham & Rodarte's Fall 2015 Shows

With New York Fashion Week coming to a close today, here is a quick look at ‘Selma’ star Tessa Thompson’s front row looks.

Giulietta: I love that she didn’t go for a safe option, not that there are many with Giulietta’s collections. With all her fellow FROWers opting for comfort in their heavy coats, the beauty stood out in her colourful threads.

Jenny Packham: Sadly this look really fell flat for me. The unflattering dress, the styling (especially the coat and hair) – nothing really excited me about this look.

Rodarte: Now this was more like it. Having shut down the red carpet in Rodarte at the ‘Selma’ New York premiere, the actress was no doubt first on the designer’s front row list. Dying over that studded boot/leggings combo, I also love the flamenco flare via the ruffled shirt. There is a lot going on, but it totally works for me (perhaps minus the oversized clutch). What say you?

Elle Fanning In Rodarte – Rodarte x Superga Dinner

Elle Fanning In Rodarte - Rodarte x Superga Dinner

Elle Fanning attended the Rodarte x Superga dinner held at the Chateau Marmont on Friday (January 23) in Los Angeles, California.

When it comes to the young starlet’s style, she often serves up looks ranging from princess gowns of the Elie Saab variety to girlie fun pieces with an edge by Carven.

On this occasion she wore directional basics from Rodarte’s Fall 2014 collection.

The look, which consisted of a grey long-sleeve turtleneck and mauve trousers with a paperbag waist, is perhaps one of my favourite looks from Elle for its laidback ease and simplicity.

Tessa Thompson In Rodarte – ‘Selma’ New York Premiere

Tessa Thompson In Rodarte - 'Selma' New York Premiere

Tessa Thompson attended the ‘Selma’ New York premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater on Sunday (December 14) in New York City.

The emerging actress, who is continuing to make waves on the red carpet, wore a Rodarte Spring 2015 gown with so many intriguing elements such as the embroidered pearl net plus iridescent sequins and Swarovski crystals, which make up the majority of this fashion-forward piece of art.

Playing it oh so right with neutral makeup and simple styling consisting of Christian Louboutin pumps and Sha Nazarian of DiamondDNY jewelry, it looks like my prediction of her becoming a major player might just be coming to fruition as I adore this look from head to toe.

I was a huge fan of this Rodarte collection but was concerned that many of the pieces would be confined to editorials. Thankfully that is not the case.

Brie Larson In Rodarte – ‘The Gambler’ New York Premiere

Brie Larson attended the New York premiere of ‘The Gambler’ held at the AMC Lincoln Square Theater on Wednesday (December 10) in New York City.

The actress wore a Rodarte Fall 2014 black silk, chiffon, velvet and tulle dress enriched with Swarovski crystals for a festive flourish.

Brie isn’t one for too much fuss on the red carpet, however, this ultra-feminine look with an edge is very much in tune with her indie-girl style.

Christian Louboutin shoes and Forevermark jewels accessorized her look, with kohl-rimmed eyes and a slicked-back do providing the finishing touches.

Anne Hathaway In Rodarte – ‘Interstellar’ New York Premiere

Anne Hathaway attended the ‘Interstellar’ New York premiere held at the AMC Lincoln Square Theater on Monday (November 3) in New York City.

The actress has been quite experimental since parting ways with her former stylist, Rachel Zoe, and this Rodarte Spring 2015 look is yet another testament to that fact.

Her slate-blue hand-painted dress with embroidered lace, macramé lace, sequins, and Swarovski crystals may not go down too well with some, as the feeling might be that there is too much going on or that Anne is perhaps too “vanilla” to pull this look off, but for me it’s a risk that somewhat paid off.

I can’t say I’m 100% convinced, but I’m truly admiring her concerted effort to give us something new as one can’t live in Valentino and Erdem all the time.

Remember how that started to get mundane?

A rouge lip, wavy bob and Christian Louboutin ‘Follies Resille’ pumps completed her look.
