Tessa Thompson has been serving some major fashion moments of late, from the translucent Interior NYC gown she wore to Westworld’s season-four premiere to the dramatic Schiaparelli top and cycling shorts she sported on the streets of London earlier this summer.
Over at the Venice Film Festival, the actor has already delivered a series of standout moments—arriving in style in a sheer printed Victoria Beckham dress, paired with a clashing Vivienne Westwood bag and bright red gloves. This was quickly followed up with a black tulle skirt and oversized blazer by Rodarte, worn with a black bralette underneath.
For her latest red-carpet appearance on Wednesday, August 31, Thompson opted for vintage—stepping out for the White Noise premiere in a sci-fi-inspired look from Armani Privé’s autumn-winter 2009 couture show. Comprising a strapless silver top with a cascading peplum waist and a black sequined skirt, the archival number, which was finished off with a pair of Matrix-esque shades, perfectly suited the otherworldly style we’ve seen from the actor in the past.
Thompson, who is styled by Wayman Deon and Micah McDonald, follows a growing number of stars who have been flying the flag for vintage looks on the red carpet this year, from Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala to Bella Hadid at Cannes Film Festival.
The secret to archival success? Choosing a piece that doesn’t seem out of place next to the runway looks of today, just as Tessa Thompson has shown. We can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
