Cannes 2018: Thandie Newton at the “Solo: A Star Wars Story” Photocall and Screening

Posted on May 16, 2018

These pictures just make us want to shout out “MISS TANDIE!!!!!” with glee. We’ve always loved her style, but we’re finding it practically a necessity of the Solo poledance, which has remained startlingly low-key up until now.

But Miss Lady doesn’t do low-key, you see.

 

 


If you’re too dazzled by the shape and the print to notice that this is a top and pants, we don’t blame you. These sorts of faux gowns are getting more and more popular on the red carpet, but we’d wager about half of them wind up looking a little goofy. Not this one. The print is a stunner and looks amazing on her, of course. But it’s the shapes here that really make this, from the perfect cut of the pants to the sweep and drape of the top, which is the part that really sells that gown effect. We’re a little surprised the jewelry is so low-key, but we suppose she didn’t want anything fighting with the ensemble, which definitely deserves the spotlight. Just a great look, top to bottom.

But this next one put us over the top:


Getting the folks at Vivienne Westwood to photograph your collection of black Star Wars figurines and make you a dress out of the pictures is just about the most badass nerd move of all time. And the fact that she came out looking chic and high-fashion on top of everything else is the cherry on top of this fabulous sundae. We are bowing down, miss.
