Few celebs who consistently command attention on the red carpet do it quite like Tessa Thompson’s fierce attitude and experimental playfulness. As she is, Thompson knows how to stop people in their tracks. Styled by famous costume duo Wyman Deon and Mika MacDonald, the 38-year-old actress always gives bold and thoughtful looks, as her recent “Thor: Love and Thunder” and “Westworld” press tours have reminded us all.
Indeed, Thompson and her team transport us to a fascinating world of diverse fashion influences. At the UK gala screening of “Thor: Love and Thunder,” for example, she wore a gold Oscar de la Renta gown and completed the art of dressing with over-the-knee boots. With a structured cuffed hem and fluid hemline, the dress evoked both the valkyrie strength and softness of her character. A similar idea underscored another style moment, in a liquid-gray, strapless Armani Privé dress in a different adventure movie scene.
Meanwhile, to celebrate the fourth season of her show “Westworld,” she embraced an ethereal gold gown from the fashion newcomer Inside Out. Not to mention Azura’s own Met Gala moment, where she walked the red steps in a bubbly, pink tulle dress by Carolina Herrera.
Thompson’s talk-show style is as visually stimulating as her red carpet presence. A standout appearance for “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Includes an ideal margella collection. And a multi-colored Schiaparelli dress skirt paired with tall strappy boots for a statement of authenticity. The actress has strengthened her position as a style icon, and her future looks will continue to provide.
Ahead, take a look at her recent red carpet looks.
