Spring Has Sprung for Thandie Newton, in Erdem at PaleyFest

Posted on March 27, 2017


Clearly, Miss Lady is ready to see some sunshine and blooms in her near future. Yes, we know that’s really just projecting our own thoughts onto her, but isn’t that what celebrities are for, darlings? Projection?

Anyway, this is one hell of a shot of shimmery spring:


She loves to make incongruous, pattern-heavy pairings like these; especially if they have a vaguely retro shape to them, like this ensemble does. She also loves to wear big, clunky shoes, which we suppose is her take on the ’40s styles she tends to gravitate towards, but we’ve yet to see an example of it working for her – although this pair isn’t bad at all. There’s a lot of visual noise to this look, but the shoes are actually fairly quiet, which is as it should be, considering how loud the rest of it is.

Generally, we like her louder, quirkier take on style. It’s not seen often enough in celebrity appearances, because most of them want to play it safe. She likes clomping out on stage in a metric tonne of look. And if we break this down, the top and the skirt are both really great, fun, stylish pieces. We’re just not feeling them together, even though that’s her thing. That skirt deserves to be paired with items that back it up instead of fight with it.
