Tessa Thompson Wore Elie Saab Haute Couture to Venice Film Festival

With the help of her A-list stylist team of Wayman Deon and Micah McDonald, Tessa Thompson has been taking over red carpets left and right lately in a variety of dramatic, high-volume looks. And her head-to-toe ruby red ensemble on the Venice Film Festival red carpet was no different. The draped gown has a short skirt that cinches at the waist, then sweeps across Thompson’s torso and over her head like a hood, finally ending in a long train. Altogether the dress gives the impression of one long piece of silk that has been fashioned into a garment, toga-style. To me, the whole look feels futuristic glam—which is perfect for a sci-fi queen like Thompson.

Thompson wore the 22nd-century gown—Elie Saab haute couture, according to Wayman + Micah’s Instagram post—with tights, pumps, box clutch, and lipstick that somehow all matched the dress’s exact shade of crimson precisely. The red on red on red feels reminiscent of the single-shade hot pink Barbiecore looks we’ve seen everywhere recently, but with an edge. Does Barbie have a sexy, dangerous older aunt with a string of younger boyfriends and a pet cheetah? Because this looks like that.


Other killer, sci-fi-inspired looks Thompson has rocked at the Venice Film Festival this year include her vintage Armani Privé moment and a sheer Victoria Beckham sheath that the Westworld star switched up by wearing over black pants. If there is one consistent factor to Tessa Thompson’s style these days, it is a distinctly “more is more” aesthetic. More layers, more fabric, more colors, more volume. And how can you argue with that? Intergalactic elites have to stand out somehow.
