Wayman and Micah Are Behind Your Favorite Red Carpet Looks of the Year

If you’re as obsessed with red carpet fashion as we are, then you know that Tessa Thompson and Jodie Turner Smith are two of Hollywood’s best-dressed stars this year. With vibrant colours, bold silhouettes and a flair for unconventional gowns, they dominated steps and repetitions – just so happen to share a top stylist .

Conversely, stylist. Behind the looks are the duo Wayman + Micah, who have proven to be the breakout stylists of the year, counting Thompson, Turner-Smith, Keke Palmer, Thuso Mbedu and Tiffany Haddish among their clients.

Los Angeles-based Wayman Bannerman and Micah McDonald have been bringing a strong point of view and edge to the Hollywood fashion scene. Together, they defied the safe, classic gowns expected of big movie premieres. Instead, they make a statement.

This was on full display at this summer’s Venice Film Festival. Each day, Thompson and Turner-Smith emerge in a more refined ensemble than the next. The duo would have Thompson in a hooded black mesh gown by Interior one day, and a metallic green ruffle by Marc Jacobs the next. Turner-Smith shed her Balmain denim evening gown (yes, really) and transitioned effortlessly into a Christopher John Rogers abstract-print dress with an exaggerated train. Two words came to mind: Fashion Drama !

The duo’s refreshing adventures will stay with you forever. As the duo dressed for Palmer’s Nope press conference this summer, they were drawn to this season’s sculptural silhouettes, including a neon pair with black opera gloves Yellow Prada dress. When designing Mbedu for The Woman King media, they leaned more toward a whimsical princess vibe – a standout example is her appearance at the Academy Museum Gala in October Giambattista Valli look, worn with an embroidered top and bubble tulle skirt. No matter which A-list client they work with, they’ve managed to embrace a distinct style of fashion—though the throughline is pretty awesome.

Below, more of Wayman + Micah’s best styling years.
