Tessa Thompson has the world of fashion in a chokehold with this choker fashion choice.

The Creed actress proved that you can use your choker necklaces as a way to keep your hair back while also making a stylish statement. Tessa stepped out on the White Noise red carpet at the Venice International Film Festival on Aug. 31 in a striking Giorgio Armani Privé ensemble paired with a diamond chain choker, which she tucked her hair into.

Basically, this is the most practical choker you'll see on a red carpet, as it eliminates the need for hair scrunchies altogether.

It's not the first time Tessa has rocked this genius fashion choice. Back in June, the 38-year-old showed out at the season four premiere of Westworld in a gold sheer dress paired with a black velvet choker that she tied over her hair.

In fact, Tessa has a theory that she brought the ‘90s trend of wearing a choker back into style. In 2016, the actress reflected on how the nostalgic accessory was making its way back into popularity.

"The thing is I already had a really impressive choker collection before this went down," she shared in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "I started making like lace chokers and now that's a thing."

During the interview, Tessa and stylist Wayman Bannerman recalled when she sported a slip dress with a gold choker at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week back in 2015. She teased about the then-growing trend, "And maybe, maybe that's why."

Now it's time for Tessa to strike a whole new wave of necklace inspiration once again.
