Given just how hard she went on the fashion for the Sylvie’s Love promotion, we try not to think too much about how Tessa Thompson would have absolutely CRUSHED the red carpet/talk show/photo call circuit in an alternate timeline, where such things existed normally. It’s too upsetting for ones such as we to even contemplate, kittens.
On the other hand, we can’t imagine she could’ve gone much harder than she has. She’s been unveiling one eye-popping luxury look after another on the ‘gram for months now. Either she had all of these looks lined up to go for a real promo tour, or she course-corrected and chose some incredibly editorial styles that are much easier to work if you’re standing and posing at home.
That? Is SPECTACULAR. No, really. It’s impractical and borderline goofy. We’re astonished that we’re praising a crinoline skirt with white lace ruffles. We absolutely acknowledge the huge disconnect between the saloon madam skirt and the oh-so ’90s upper half of the look.

What can we say? It just works for us. Maybe it wouldn’t look so great getting out of a limo for a red carpet, but we’re not likely to get the chance to see it again in that setting. This is one of those “one girl gets to wear it” ensembles among the celebrity set because no one’s going to want to be compared to the first one to pull it off. And Miss Tessa, in our opinion, is definitely pulling it off. The hat is a fun choice, as are the white boots. It’s just really striking and memorable, well-suited to her, and vaguely romantic/sexy in an unexpected way.
