Tessa Thompson takes a risk in 8-inch heels and a mesh dress for ‘Blonde’ – Footwear News
Tessa Thompson served up the drama on the red carpet for the premiere of “Blonde” at the 79th Venice International Film Festival in Venice, Italy today. Wrapped in bluish black, Thompson was joined by the film’s cast, towering over them on platforms.
The ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ actress wore an unexpected mesh hooded dress sprinkled with sequins and fitted with a train that kept the comedian shining all night long. Beneath the dazzling dress, Thompson wore a bra and high-waisted underwear that gave her extra coverage when needed. Styling blunt blonde bangs, Thompson accentuated her features with graphic eyebrows and a glossy dark purple lip.
Thompson opted for her usual high-heeled platform pumps, this time with 8-inch heels.
“Blonde” is an upcoming psychological biography film written and directed by Andrew Dominik that will premiere at the festival. Adapted from the 2000 biographical fiction novel of the same name, the film is an exaggerated take on the life of famous actress Marilyn Monroe. The film is set to be released in the United States on September 16, ahead of its September 28 streaming release on Netflix.
