Earlier today, Thandie Newton was spotted shopping at “The Gathering Goddess“, a luxury vintage store in London owned by Wilma Mae Basta. Thandie was pictured on their Facebook page wearing a gorgeous 1960s cream & black baroque beaded dress.
Thandie has always had a love for vintage. Some of her favorite pieces include dresses by Ossie Clark and Jean Muir (see below, Thandie in Jean Muir dress in 2007). In an interview with USA Today, she noted that
“[v]intage is not only glorious and stylish, it’s also the way forward in terms of recycling. Whenever I go into great vintage stores, I wonder why we ever buy new things.”
According to “The Gathering Goddess”, Thandie has chosen a few pieces from the store to wear at the promotional events for her upcoming TV series “Rogue.”
