    It IS a cute dress and she looks good, except for the squashed boobs. The neckline should have been higher to give her a more graceful look.

    i love the dress and there's a whole back story to it. the figures on it are all the black characters in the star wars franchise.

    Rolling Solo: Thandie Newton Made a Stylish Statement About Representation at Cannes

    Fun fact: Thandie Newton collects Star Wars action figures. Well, only the black ones.
    How do we know? Because she incorporated them into the Vivienne Westwood gown she wore to Tuesday night’s European premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story, which opens May 25th in the U.S. That’s right: Newton, who plays explosives expert Val Beckett in the film, figuratively brought Billy Dee Williams, John Boyega, Samuel L. Jackson, Forest Whitaker, and Ghanaian actor Hugh Quarshie along as her guests, literally wearing her love for the characters they’ve played in the franchise on her sleeve (and her skirt, and her bodice, and her train).

    How, you ask? Newton’s ivory silk gown was made using Westwood’s iconic “absence of roses” print, which was then customized with an overlay of silkscreened images of Newton’s collection of Star Wars action figures, photographed by fashion photographer Christian Hogstedt.

    Paired with golden platform sandals and Newton’s natural curls swept up into a stunning pompadour, the effect was a dazzling tribute to the few black actors who have been immortalized as action figures by the Star Wars franchise (soon to be joined by Donald Glover). It’s also exactly the type of subversive yet subtle statement about black representation we’d expect from the actress who continuously knocks Westworld off its axis.

    The dress is absolutely amazing.
    She looks a bit too skinny perhaps.

    Pretty, but she's still too thin.
