Tessa Thompson Sparkles in Mint Gown and Unexpected Heels at the 79th Venice Film Festival 2022

Tessa Thompson made a bold statement at the 79th Venice Film Festival.

Arriving at the world premiere of Olivia Wilde’s “Don’t Worry Darling,” Thompson posed in a mint green Marc Jacobs gown, styled by Wayman + Micah. Hailing from Jacobs’ Fall 2022 runway collection, Thompson’s dress featured a slim-fitting miniskirt with a draped front skirt. The piece prominently featured a gathered and puffed off-the-shoulder bodice and sleeves, complete with a gathered bustle and hanging train — all coated in sequins for a sparkling statement.

Completing her ensemble were crystal-covered stud earrings, rings and a chain link bracelet from Pomellato.

For footwear, Thompson walked in a towering set of Jacobss’ sold-out Kiki boots. The “Thor” star’s white leather platform style featured thick platform soles, 6-inch block heels and numerous thin buckled front straps. Though the shoes and gown directly matched Jacobs’ runway look, the pair still created a grungy and dramatic finish to Thompson’s ensemble — and solidified themselves as a surprise shoe for the red carpet.
