STYLE UPDATE FROM THE FRENCH RIVIERA
Be shimmer, sheer,gold or bold — here’s trendspotting from the ongoing Cannes Film Festival in France
Hollywood actor Jessica Chastain brought back ’50s glam in this Armani Prive halterneck gown. The golden yellow hue was earlier seen on the red carpet on the likes of actor Uma Thurman and model Irina Shayk. Chastain paired dropearrings with the gown, with her ginger locks tied tightly back into a bun.
Russian model Irina Shayk set temperatures soaring in a see-through Balmain gown with black striped detailing and a thick black belt. She tied her hair in a sleek knot. Sheer was also sported by model Emily Ratajkowski and Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone.
American actor Elle Fanning was a gorgeous sight in this Christian Dior gown. Floral gowns seem to be the flavour in the French Riviera, with several divas opting for them. Remember Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Georges Hobeika, and supermodel Kendall Jenner in a Giambattista Valli?
Victoria’s Secret model Elsa Hosk channelled her inner princess in this voluminous Alberta Ferretti powder blue gown. Doesn’t this remind you of Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Cinderellaesque gown, also in a similar hue? Voluminous gowns are all-time favourites on red carpets.
Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes dazzled in a sequinned Balmain gown. The slicked back hair added to her look. Sequins have been a hit on the Cannes red carpet this year, with celebrities like Hollywood actor Nicole Kidman and Chinese actor Guan Xiaotong raising style stakes in sequins.
