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.

    Unfussy, non-gimmicky, un-pageanty, true Cannes style through and through…

    Its delightful. perfect for photocall. Im not nearly excited by it as other people but it is pretty. I do adore her hairstyle though.

    Not that my memory is absolutely great, but this is the best daytime look at Cannes I can remember. She looks impossibly chic, elegant and modern. This kind of daytime glamour really makes Cannes for me.

    Can a photo call look win best dressed of the day? It looks likely to me. I’ve always loved Thandie, she has such a strong unique style.

    Yes! I absolutely ADORE this! So far, Cannes has been lacking strong photocall outfits, but damn… Thandie just shut it down.

    Honestly I love this, the prints, the colors, the shape. Valentino did good. Thandie looks great

    Not an easy outfit to pull off. But she looks effortless in these pictures. Such a cool look.

    Damn!! Joonas makes anyone around him look like a midget. But at 6’11” you are bound to tower over almost everyone.

    I’m not ashamed to admit it..I cried when I saw this look.
    This moment is a confluence of finally being recongised (on Westworld) for her world-class acting talent after years & years of being overlooked, she’s about to star in what I’m sure will be her biggest movie to date (Solo) and to cap it all off she looks so dreamy in this wonderful Valentino.
    She is a reminder to me that skill & talent coupled with persistence pay off in the end and thank you FC for always highlighting Thandie when so many others ignored her throughout the years.
    BDOTY nominee for me x

      ..I’m more excited about this than the entire Day 7 poll

    She is just stunning. So much love for her hair and the way this look is styled.

    Thandie is killing the red carpet. I love how luxe and sophisticated this look is.

  16. Leandra May 15, 2018 at 16:14 #

    Soooo chic. I adore this look. Valentino proving once again who are the ones who set the trends.

  17. Susie May 15, 2018 at 16:08 #

    Such a fresh and lovely look. Proof that you can stand out at Cannes and look gorgeous with no sequins / trains / capes / sheer / poofy skirts.

  18. Santiago May 15, 2018 at 16:06 #

    One of the best Photocall styles, a fresh and radiant look, it doesn´t look fall at all

    Very eye catching and bold look. She looks great, but the way she’s posing it seems as if she is not sold on it herself.

  20. Charlotte May 15, 2018 at 15:29 #

    She looks lovely!
    This is an original and very chic look.

    The picture with her partner is funny.

    Man I love Thandie, and how she always goes for unique looks without sacrificing on the glamour front. Love this look.
