I have to say I have never seen a Men in Black film. The trailer for Men In Black: International was just one of the previews when I went to see Rocketman last week and while yes it is great that the franchise is getting more inclusive adding a female “man in black” it just does nothing for me. The press tour so far however has been serving up lewks that are definitely amazing. A lot of times that is my stance on some of these blockbuster movies. I would much rather watch an Oscar contender over a superhero, alien, or horror movie, but I love them for the major fashion moments they bring to the red carpet. Tessa Thompson has been making the rounds serving up looks from Lanvin, Versace, Robert Wun, and more. Each look has nodded to either the suits that the Men in Black wear or give a bit of alien-esque drama to it. I am really excited to see what she will bring to the red carpet at the Men In Black: International NYC gala premiere tomorrow night. I wanted to go for avant garde drama and glamour for this red carpet leaving the suiting behind for the photocalls and creating a major moment with this periwinkle Azzi & Osta Spring 2019 Couture one shoulder gown which features so many details it is hard to actually describe. I love the 3D floral details, the tulle draping, the cutout on the front of the skirt, the asymmetrical peplum, and the bow like draping at the shoulder. It isn’t an easy dress to wear by any means. I think the hardest thing about this dress in the cutout on the skirt. I honestly would ask the designer to remake the skirt so it was solid because I don’t think anyone that isn’t an Amazonian tall white model could wear it as presented, but with that modification I think it could make this gown an absolutely major moment for Tessa to bring to life on this red carpet. I would finish this look with a sleek braided bun updo, smokey eyes, dark violet purple lips, silver Christian Louboutin ‘Oxydock’ 3D crystal embellished sandals, and intricate Messika diamond chandelier earrings. Those details would tie this dramatic and avant garde ensemble together like it was tied up with a nice bow. Rebecca Ferguson is one of the supporting stars in Men in Black: International and thus has not been on the international tour for the film so far. Will she make the jaunt to NYC for the big gala premiere tomorrow? Honestly I have no idea and go back and forth on whether or not she would deliver something major. When she first bust onto the scene a few years ago wearing looks from Elie Saab and Stella McCartney I was excited to see what the future had laying in wait for her, but she hasn’t lived up to the expectations I’ve set for her. I would love to see her bring simple yet chic elegance to the red carpet at this premiere tomorrow night wearing this black Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2019 ensemble which features a one shoulder bodice with a dramatic drape and a pair of high waisted flared leg pants. The look is simple yet sophisticated and I definitely believe that Rebecca could make this look come to life on the red carpet especially if paired with a sleek updo, defined eyes, red lips, a black Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ crystal embellished and peridot green crystal clasp clutch, a pair of simple black Jimmy Choo ‘Leta’ strappy pointed toe pumps, and chic Cartier diamond and peridot ear crawler earrings.
The NYC premiere of Men in Black: International is expected to take place tomorrow Tuesday June 11, 2019.
