Style crush: Tessa Thompson

Style crush: Tessa Thompson

Thanks to her roles in the Thor franchise and Avengers: Endgame as Valkyrie, and Men in Black: International, Tessa Thompson has been thrust into the spotlight as of late. But acting chops aside, what left a lasting impression, is her fearless approach to fashion. Her choice of bold looks has always kept us on our toes (in a good way), from oh-so-feminine get-ups to edgy ensembles. Remember her leather-and-silk look at this year’s Met Gala? Her braid alone took 12 feet of latex and a week to make—talk about dedication!

While promoting her new movie Men in Black: International the past few weeks, Thompson has also been serving major looks, sporting ensembles that are not any less head-turning. All of the looks were a nod to the sci-fi aspect of the movie, whether it’s in metallic hues, exaggerated details or graphic prints. At the world premiere in the Big Apple on Tuesday night, she channeled her inner Galactic Princess in a custom silver dress by Rodarte, which features a one-shoulder voluminous sleeve and ruffles that cascade to the floor. To take the look out of the world, she paired it with a moon-shaped clutch that’s encrusted in glitter. We love how she regularly wears designs from up-and-coming designers too. Her elaborate outfit in Beijing by New York label Vaquera (look 2) and Hong Kong-born designer Robert Wun (look 4) are also some of our favourites. Her fearlessness and fierceness when it comes to fashion (and IRL) serve as an inspiration to many, and her fellow Hollywood A-listers should definitely take note.

Below, take a look at all of Tessa Thompson’s eye-catching outfits this year:
