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.
