The 79th Venice International Film Festival is finally here, which means it’s time to sit back and wait patiently to see what your favorite celebrities are wearing to this iconic event. One of the first cabs to come out of the row this year is Tessa Thompson, who blesses us with a look that mixes lace, leather and Vivienne Westwood.
Arriving at the Italian film festival overnight, Thompson layered a delicate black and gold lace dress over black pants. Known for her accessories, she teamed her dress and pants with cropped red leather gloves, dark sunglasses, a Vivienne Westwood tartan handbag and wore an oversized black bow wrapped around her slicked up bun.
Thompson stars in The listener, which will be screened at the film festival in the coming days. Directed by Steve Buscemi, the film follows the story of Beth, played by Thompson, a helpline volunteer who is busy answering a steady stream of phone calls from distressed and depressed people across America. . What makes the film particularly unique is that it features only one on-screen role, which is Thompson’s Beth.
With Emmy-winning Buscemi at the helm and Emmy-nominated Thompson as the film’s sole star, it’s sure to be a movie to watch. And when it comes to styling the red carpet at the festival, there’s no doubt that Thompson will continue to exceed our already lofty expectations.
