For the record, we all love Tessa Thompson! Loved her since Veronica Mars. Loved her in Dear White People. And Creed. Favorite part of the MCU, for sure. So please believe us that this is not a hit piece when we say noooooo Tessa Thompson whyyyyyyyyyy.
Dresses over pants, are we bringing that back? The Thor: Love and Thunder star arrive in Venice for the 79th annual Venice Film Festival in an ensemble that channels Rihanna in all the best ways…plus pants????
She has red-tinted hair and red-tinted sunglasses, plus red leather driving gloves. Absolutely perfect, Italian, fashion, no complaints. A patterned bag that both clashes and goes with the stitching on her sheer dress, worn over a black bralette. Sexy yet reserved, it’s giving Vatican couture, vampire Sunday school teacher, day-to-night-to-day. The details are superb, from the darkly feminine bow in her hair to the black heels with a bit of a Tim Burton edge.
But then there’s pants.
Why, Tessa, why the pants?
