Nicole Kidman attended the closing ceremony in a beautiful Giorgio Armani dress. Finally, a dress that I love without any doubt! Simplicity has got me this year, therefore my excitement for such understated refined gowns has been topping everything lately. Perhaps this is why I couldn’t find too many appealing gowns at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. But Nicole caught my attention at the opening ceremony and has done it again tonight, at the end of these two busy weeks. Last night was a wrap for the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and I am happy I got too see such a glamorous and elegant look on the red carpet.
I keep seeing some of my favorite runway looks on the red carpet which is really great! For example, this Elie Saab Couture dress which is part of the spring collection has just been worn by Dita von Teese at the premiere of “Cleopatra”. It isn’t very hard to fall in love with Mr. Saab’s designs and this dress has been on my list of favorites ever since it was first presented on the runway. Maybe it is because Dita surprised us with not wearing a long dress as everybody expected to see on the red carpet that I love this look so much!
Another day in Cannes means another luscious premiere and, this time, the Golden Globe winner Jessica Chastain walked the red carpet for the premiere of “Cleopatra“. I know the beautiful actress opts for simple gowns a lot of the times, so I wasn’t surprised to see this look. She wore a sheer white Versace dress that was enlivened by a breath-taking necklace. I do like the dress, however the necklace doesn’t work for me in spite of its grateness. It is too heavy for such a delicate and feminine design. Her singature hairstyle completed the look.
Zoe Saldana joined Marion Cotillard on the red carpet for the premiere of “Blood Ties”. The actress wore one of my favorite Valentino dresses! Yesterday I looked through the fall 2013 collection again and wondered if I would see this dress on the red carpet and… here it is. The embroidery is enchanting and the design so feminine, I am very happy Zoe opted for it. Again, I am on the fence about the hair, but let’s say it works…
Marion Cotillard attended the premiere for her latest film project, “Blood Ties”. The actress wore a Christian Dior dress, part of the Resort 2014 collection which was presented on the catwalk just days ago. Although I am not too fond of this type of asymmetric design, this one works for me. However, I think that the hairstyle is too serious for a dress with such an ethereal and summery vibe.
