1/8

TESSA THOMPSON

Tessa always looks terrific in pretty much anything, thanks mostly to a confident approach to dressing. For the photo-call for Men In Black: International in Paris she opts for a sculptural look by Hong Kong born, London-based designer Robert Wun.

Even more stunning is the rooftop location overlooking Paris at the Cite de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine.

YARA SHAHIDI

Stateside, Yara shows her bold fashion choices at this year's CFDA Fashion Awards at Brooklyn Museum. Really digging her sculptural hairdo, a reference to Diana Ross in the 1975 film Mahogany. Opting for separates, this Monse resort 2020 look is a fun and sculptural outfit that stood out on the red carpet.

SHAILENE WOODLEY

The Big Little Lies actress has made some really bold choices recently while out on the promo circuit to promote season two of BLL, working closely with celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger to showcase her confident approach to fashion.

At the CFDA awards on Monday, the actress chose to wear this deconstructed tuxedo dress from Johnathan Simkhai's resort 2020 collection, adding a bold orange eyeshadow to complement the cutting-edge look.

JESSICA WILLIAMS

Attending her first CFDA Awards and also presenting on the night was actress and comedian Jessica Williams wearing a quintessential look from Thom Browne. The small details of a septum ring, red flowers, headband and bow trimmed kitten heels adds a personal touch to an otherwise conservative look.

LAKEITH STANFIELD

Satin is made to be worn and crushed, and I don't mind the way Lakeith is owning this languid Sies Marjan look at the CFDAs.

NICHOLAS HOULT

Also going for colour and 70s inspired flared trousers, Nicholas is another actor paving the way for more bold menswear choices on the red carpet, this time wearing a colour blocking look from Givenchy's fall 2019 collection at the Dark Phoenix premiere in Hollywood.
