Tessa Thompson gets her style inspiration from early Diane Keaton movies.
The 36-year-old loved the androgynous looks worn by Keaton’s characters in films in the 1970s such as Annie Hall and Play It Again, Sam, which featured chic waistcoats, flared tailored trousers, and crisp white shirts.
And Tessa further revealed her admiration for style icons of the ’70s, as she credited Mick Jagger’s then-wife, model and activist Bianca, for also inspiring her fashion choices.
“Bianca Jagger, who’s not a fictional character, but just someone who’s at Studio 54,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.
Elsewhere in the interview, the Thor: Ragnarok star confessed she is obsessed with fashion from the 1920s, as she loves the opulence and extravagance of the outfits.
“The 20s were such a cool time because you had real structure, also people got dressed from head-to-toe with a glove and a hat,” she explained. “You had these fantastic garments in the ’20s that were super loose fitting. Some of the sexiest things from the roaring ’20s for a flapper girl were just comfortable. They were dresses you could actually go out and dance and live in.”
And stylist duo Wayman Bannerman and Micah McDonald, who work with the Creed actress, agreed with Tessa’s fondness for the decade.
“I love the tapestry and the opulence of the ’20s,” McDonald gushed. “Love a feather. Give me a velvet, chiffon, sequins on top of it.”
