In case you missed it, Tessa Thompson's Men in Black: International press tour looks were out of this world. While promoting the film in New York City, Beijing, and Moscow, the actress turned heads in ensembles that were marked departures from her character's notably muted on-screen wardrobe. On-screen, Thompson wore the typical special agent uniform: a classic black suit with a crisp white button-down and a black tie. On the red carpet, however, she stunned in avant-garde pieces that were anything but standard issue.

In fact, we'd go so far as to say that the impeccably stylish actress demonstrated her innate ability to pull off risky trends better than anyone else over the course of the film's global press tour. From the glitzy Rodarte dress adorned with ruffles that she wore to the world premiere of the film in NYC to the bold Versace suit that she sported at a photocall in Moscow, these are some of Thompson's best looks from the red carpet. Without further ado, scroll down to see and shop four risky trends that are Tessa Thompson–approved.
