Among celebrities who constantly command attention on the red carpet, few do so like Tessa Thompson, who exudes a fierce attitude and experimental sense of playfulness. As the risk taker that he is, Thompson knows how to stop people in their tracks. Styled by celebrity dressing duo Wayman Dion and Micah MacDonald, the 38-year-old actress always looks bold and thoughtful, as her recent “Thor: Love and Thunder” and “Westworld” press tours reminded us all.
Indeed, Thompson and his team take us into a fascinating world of different fashion influences. For example, at the UK gala screening of “Thor: Love and Thunder,” she nailed the art of styling in a gold-embellished Oscar de la Renta gown with matching over-the-knee boots. With a structured bustier top and fluid fringe hem, the dress exuded both strength and tenderness of her character, Valkyrie. The same concept underscored another style moment, marked by a liquid-gray, strapless Armani Privé dress at a separate screening of the adventure movie.
Meanwhile, to celebrate the fourth season of her show “Westworld,” she adopted an ethereal, gold ruffle dress from fashion newcomer Interiors. Not to mention her head-turning Met Gala moment, where she walked the red steps in a frothy, pink tulle gown by Carolina Herrera.
Thompson’s talk-show style is as visually stimulating as her red carpet appearances. Standout looks include a conceptual Margiela ensemble for “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” And a surrealist statement in a multicolored Schiaparelli skirt suit teamed with vertically striped boots. The actress has cemented her place as a style icon, and will continue to deliver on her future appearances.
