Miss Newton

Thandie Newton, never ceases to amaze me with her style decisions. She always looks impeccable and is definitely one of the best red-carpet dressers around. I particularly love her use of colour, and her bold choices, such as the Jonathan Saunders dress she recently wore at the Elle Style awards;
Thandie also looked amazing in her exquisite vintage black dress with gold detail, at the 2009 Baftas. In comparison with the dresses worn by other actresses, such as Penelope Cruz, Kate Winslet and Amy Adams, who all wore similar "mermaid" dresses, Thandie Newton shows true individuality. Similarly as she does with the Matthew Williamson pink dress, from his s/s 08 collection.
In my opinion, Thandie Newton is one of the best style icons from the 21st century, however, unlike the more well-known British "celebrity" style icons such as Keira Knightley, or Kate Moss, she is much less appreciated.
Do you think Thandie is a fantastic style icon? YAY OR NAY?

  1. absolutely love her style and originality. plus i think that she wears things that 6 months later become the trend.

    i remember what she wore to the uk music awards in 2007 and 8 months later that dress was EVERYWHERE.
