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.

    It’s really a tragedy that Rodarte that doesn’t allow alterations to be made on their dresses, they would have more successful red carpet appearances.

    As beautiful as she looks neck up, this is a no from me. Hate the gown and the shoes are definitely a head scratcher.

    I guess i’ll be in the minority here. I like it.
    And even think it looks better on her than on the model.

      I must refrain from my words. There is an illusion net there that i hadn’t noticed before. It’s a No from me as well

    It’s sitting way too low, looks a size too big and the shoes were the wrong choice. It’s a no from me.
