November 28, 2018 Premiere, Runway To Red Carpet

Tessa Thompson In Valentino Haute Couture – ‘Creed II’ London Premiere

Tessa Thompson In Valentino Haute Couture - 'Creed II' London Premiere

Tessa Thompson was the queen of the night on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘Creed II’ at BFI IMAX on Wednesday (November 28) in London.

Green appears to be the theme of this promo tour judging by her Jimmy Kimmel appearance and New York premiere. Perhaps we need to see the film to glean the connection.

On this occasion she wore Valentino Fall 2018 Haute Couture.

I’ve looked at this dress from every angle, and it instantly became clear that this gown is deceptively simple, and one that’s hard to pull off.

Thankfully, Tessa has both the style and confidence to carry off the look with such grace and ease.

Cartier jewels and a 5ft long braided ponytail completed her look along with some flawless makeup.

    First of all she is absolutely stunning in every way. The green colour on her is divine. Not everyone could pull this off but she did so beautifully. L?VE!!

    I think she looks great in it, I love the colour it’s a change from a usual shapes but it still looks meaningful rather than like a sack. I’m kind of surprised didn’t wear the runway headpiece and think she might have pulled it off.
    ooh Florian

    She’s selling it so hard that I just automatically jump on board. But damn that beauty look…she looks gorgeous!!!

    Out of the crazy fashion forward Valentino gowns on the red carpet this week, this one’s definitely my favourite. She’s rocking the hell out of it. Love

    Thankfully, the swim hat was left on the runway this time. That blood orange lip is to die for and the dress color looks great on her. But it is still a sack, though she wears it well.

    I think she actually pulls this off. Great colour, excellent styling and she carries it well. Was it raining? The hem looks wet which is unfortunate.

    • Catherine Kallon November 29, 2018 at 11:46 am #

      Yes. Always raining in London this time of year.

    I want to love the dress, but I’m having a hard time with it. I do however love the styling of it and the confidence she’s exuding.

    I’m amazed at how well she pulls this off. Not because I thought she couldn’t – quite the opposite – but it’s not an easy look to wear.

  12. JHH November 28, 2018 at 11:17 pm #

    Her beauty look is stunning.

  13. Adolfo Oc. November 28, 2018 at 11:05 pm #

    BDOTY! Valentino is having a WEEK.

  14. justme November 28, 2018 at 9:58 pm #

    I love the hair & makeup but it’s a hard pass on the dress. It looks like a fitted sheet.

    This is true couture, its playing with proportion, deceptively simple but so complex. Plus the wearer really pulls out all the stops. Also even with a five foot braid, this looks so natural. It oddly gives a military vibe, anyone remember that girl from street fighter with the braid and the army slacks?
    I love this. Valentino has really been on fire this year. Pushing silouhette. And this is so refreshing since everyone else is on slits up to there or leave nothing to the imagination sheer.

      +1 Sack dresses are much more interesting than the usual Gal Gadot sparkly column gown.

    Hate this. gigantic green sack.

    Well it’s ugly, but Tessa manages to somehow elevate it by her styling and attitude. So it’s a pass for me

  18. phee November 28, 2018 at 9:04 pm #

    o goodness no. Ugly green. Ugly sack of a dress. Such ugly lines.

  19. Charlotte November 28, 2018 at 8:59 pm #

    I hate this, the dress is just a huge amount of fabric and that’s it.

  20. miszzel November 28, 2018 at 8:38 pm #

    I’m surprised but I actually love this on her – it’s brave, it’s bold, it’s fresh and she wears is so well. Her makeup is so simple yet so stunning, which helps to maximize the impact. Graceful!

    • Adwoa November 28, 2018 at 11:12 pm #

      Ditto. It’s bold, dramstic and chic.
