The fierce and fabulous ladies of Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder served a feast for the senses in London. Nearly two weeks after the LA premiere, the superhero film held its UK screening at the Odeon Luxe Leicester Square.

1. Natalie Portman in Dior Resort 2023 and Jimmy Choo
The 41-year-old actress typically goes for classic silhouettes that exude refined elegance. But for this promotional tour, it looks like she’s enjoying playing dress up and it shows in her sartorial choices.
Natalie has recently been churning out outfits that showcase her fun and flirty side like her shimmering Celine dress.
For the London screening, Natalie turned up the charm in a strapless red silk minidress from Dior. She channeled Mexican artist Frida Kahlo in a red floral headpiece that added a playful element to her look.

In the film, Natalie reprises her role as Jane Foster. But this time, she also embodies The Mighty Thor as she’s deemed worthy enough to wield Mjolnir.

Sharing a “clueless moment”
On her recent post on Instagram, Natalie shared a “clueless moment” with co-star Tessa Thompson at a press junket. They emulated iconic best friends Cher Horowitz and Dionne Davenport from the 1995 cult film Clueless.

Natalie wore a yellow-and-black plaid blazer and matching skirt – a look that’s synonymous with Alicia Silverstone’s Cher.
But while Cher wore hers with a white shirt and a yellow vest, Natalie opted for a black bandeau. She also ditched the white knee socks and white pumps, going full-on with the staple ‘90s combat boots from Dr. Martens.
Meanwhile, Tessa offered a modern and more glammed-up take on the back-to-school outfit. She wore a Louis Vuitton Fall 2022 black pleated puffball skirt and black top layered over a white blouse. The 38-year-old actress completed her look with black tights and black slingback pumps.

Serving apocalyptic-chic, Tessa wore an Oscar de la Renta gold gown with draped beaded embellishments.
Her team reworked the piece and gave it a strapless neckline with an exposed corset bodice. It also featured a floor-sweeping hem, a short train, and distressed details.

The thigh-high slit gave us a glimpse of her matching metallic gold Stuart Weitzman boots. Her long hair was styled in braids that looked like they could be part of the dress with the beaded strands.
She rounded out her look with a choker, arm cuffs, statement rings, and nail art.

At the film’s UK premiere, Tessa wore a pair of thigh-high boots from Stuart Weitzman’s newest collection. They’re called Ultrastuart with a stretch-boot silhouette and 110mm stiletto heels.

3. Pom Klementieff in Alexander McQueen Fall 2022
Adding a dose of cool edge on the blue carpet, Pom Klementieff stepped out in head-to-toe Alexander McQueen. She served a tough-chic look with a black leather biker jacket over a sheer dress.
Her black fishnet tulle skeletal corset dress featured a draped design with an asymmetric skirt. The heaviness of the jacket balanced out the sultry elegance of the dress with its flirty exposed shoulder.
But it’s the unbothered attitude with the withering stare that truly sells this look.

The 36-year-old actress styled her hair in a side-swept braid trimmed with antique silver chains. She finished off her look with smoky eye makeup, multiple ear piercings, statement rings, and ankle-strap pumps.

Reprising her role as Mantis, Pom appears in the film with fellow Guardians of the Galaxy alum Chris Pratt. In a promotional shot, they seem to be helping out Thor with his existential crisis.

For the London screening, Pom wore the Alexander McQueen Punk pumps. Crafted from black calfskin leather, these shoes feature a pointy-toe silhouette and contrasting metallic silver toecaps.
