Tessa Thompson wears many vintage looks from the 50s and 60s for her role as Sylvie on Amazon Prime Sylvie’s love, but when it came to doing press for the film, she bought the high fashion runways. With the help of her stylists Wayman Bannerman and Micah McDonald, Thompson has pushed the boundaries of fashion since 2014 when she first worked with the duo for them Selma Premiere, which comes on stage in an asymmetrical, pearl-studded and net-like Rodarte number.
Thompson confirmed that she’s hooked up with Bannerman and McDonald through Zoom to coordinate their outfits for their latest virtual press tour, and each laid-back ensemble is more stylish than the last. In fact, we wonder if attending talk shows and walking the carpet as the fashion world continues to change will be an opportunity for celebrities to show off their personal style rather than just showing the heck couture. Thompson makes it possible for us to go in that direction, and we can’t wait to see her keep showing off her street style on the Gramm.
Check out her skirt ahead of time, from cherry red David Koma London partings with a biker shorts to the most luxurious coordinate set we’ve ever seen: an ivory knit set with woven tassels, which she completed with white boots.
