Thessa Thompson Holds Her Own in Schiaparelli Couture at the “Thor: Ragnarok” L.A. Premiere

Posted on October 11, 2017

Miss Tessa brought her A game, as expected.

 

You could say she merely looked at who she’d be sharing this red carpet with and made judicious choices in response. After all, if you’re posing next to La Blanchett, you better come correct or you’re going to look awful in pictures. And it might even be true that there was some coordinating going on, since both ladies came dressed in the color of the film’s logo.

But Tessa’s always been a Fashion Girl, and we don’t think she needed the excuse of Cate Blanchett’s presence to bring her best self forward. She’s just taking her natural affinity for fashion and applying it to the biggest spotlight of her career. It’s bold and smart. Which is, not coincidentally, a great way to describe this look.

The color looks amazing on her and we love the gaudy embellishments at the waist. We’re not really feeling the rings, which come off a little costume-y. And while we love the ’30s-retro hairstyle on her, we tend to think this dress needed a little edge and modernity in the styling. Still, it’s a great, high-impact look. She’s more than holding her own.
