Sure, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson just got a pet pig, and Meghan Markle became a royal family member, but some people would say it's actually Tessa Thompson who's having the best 2018. Not only did Thompson, who just turned 35, make a reappearance in the TV version of her breakout film Dear White People, but she also stole the spotlight as a member of nomination-worthy ensembles in Westworld, Annihilation, and Boots Riley's summer hit Sorry To Bother You.
But even when Thompson steps out of her eclectic roster of characters, it's her real-life personality that tends to grab people's attention — especially when it comes to her statement-making fashion and beauty choices. Now, with all eyes on her, there's no better time to walk through Thompson's impressive Hollywood transformation, from a fresh-faced actress to a bold boundary-breaking star. Check it out, ahead.
