Thuso Mbedu is the leading actress in ‘The Underground Railroad’ directed by Barry Jenkins.
The 29-year-old South African actress, who looks significantly younger, has started her promo tour with four virtual looks.
I was going to say the actress dipped her toe into patterns, but on reflection she jumped in headfirst wearing a striking geometric Armani Spring 2021 suit which immediately lets us know that Thuso is not afraid to stand out.
The print may have been overwhelming had it not before for the solid crop top.
Challenging the theory that some people can wear a sack and get away with it, the actress’ second look from Valentino looks just like that…a sack.
The material reminds me of when my mum would go to the African market and come home with rice in a Jute Hessian bag, so nostalgia is creeping in.
With the Dr. Martens boots she kinda makes this work. My only real complaint is that I don’t think it needed Valentino emblazoned all over it.
This look is reminiscent of when Balenciaga made those red-white-blue nylon laundry bags fashionable.
Thuso looks like a teenager here in pink Valentino, so undoing the bow may have been an attempt to prevent this look from feeling too twee.
The final look from Altuzarra’s Spring 2021 collection is my favourite. The modern cut of her Caytrix blazer is the most intriguing aspect as it combines smart style with an edgy attitude.
I also love how she tucked the trouser leg into her sandals to add another twist to this look.
