Thompson's style is innovative and fresh, breaking all fashion rules on the red carpet.

On the red carpet today, the actress wore an abstract Armani Privé gown. 

Black sheath skirt with silvery strapless bustier and rippled, structured tiers.

Zanotti pumps completed the look. Cat-eye sunglasses and a necklace added edge.

In preparation for the premier film festival, Thompson has made sartorial waves.

VB cami dress and mesh turtleneck top. Triangle bralette and fluid black pants.

I wore Anny Nord pumps, Vivienne Westwood plaid bag, and round sunglasses.

A Variety cocktail party later in the day featured Thompson in a frilly black tulle midi skirt.
