Karolina Kurkova In Armani Privé – 2011 Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Karolina Kurkova also looked stunning at the Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony.

The model wore a fabulous Armani Privè Fall 2009 gown which I’m sure many of you have been longing to see on the red carpet.

Her mermaid gown is embroidered with atlantic blue sequins in a wave motif plus it’s further embellished with clear Swarovski crystals.

I love organza and crinoline details on the shoulder.

Karolina opted for a black clutch and black strappy heels, when I would’ve preferred silver heels to complement the embellishments.

Tight retro curls and dazzling Cartier jewels completed her look.

    I would have loved the dress to be floor lenght but Karolina does look beautiful.

    Im really taken about how beautiful she is here. Her make-up is great and her hair cute too.
    I like the dress but wish it were a bit longer so we cant see the shoes and I dont get the mesh part on the left strap.

    ugh! the shoesssss. otherwise, perfect.

      You said it!

      Agreed! The shoe choice hurts my feelings (:)) but everything else is beautiful!

    That dress is to die for! It would have been perfect with silver heels like you suggested FC. Thank you in advance for the marvellous job you’ll be doing all along the festival!

    Stunning – the color is electric. She looks fab… but am not too sure about her shoes.

    BDOTW, or, as it is during Cannes, BDOTD for sure!

    I gasped, literally. I had given up hope that I would ever see this gown on the red carpet, I’m so happy it finally happened. Wish we couldn’t see her shoes as well, but overall I think she wears it quite well.

    Love the dress and it looks perfect on her! The detail at the back is awesome.

  9. Laura May 11, 2011 at 18:45 #

    I like the color on her, the hair, and the fit.

    I don’t like the mesh strap and the shoes.

    Good but could be better.

    I love all the detail pix you show us at the bottom, where you can really see the surfaces and textures more – wonderful!

      thank you.. It really does add a lot to the looks to see them that close up

  11. IloveNorway May 11, 2011 at 19:29 #

    Finally someone wore this!

  12. dee May 11, 2011 at 19:34 #

    She looks great. I love to see blondes in blue.

  13. maria May 11, 2011 at 19:35 #

    beautiful, but i have to deduct points for the black shoes…

  14. Karen May 11, 2011 at 19:44 #

    She looks fabulous. So fabulous that I didn’t even notice those shoes. I like her shoulder mesh version more than the runway version.

  15. Lucía May 11, 2011 at 20:51 #

    I think up till now this is probably my favorite.

  16. Emi May 11, 2011 at 20:52 #

    Ohhh… I really envy women who can wear such gorgeous gowns for events like this…

  17. Thomas Monks May 11, 2011 at 23:26 #

    i have been waiting to see this on the carpet since the day it walked and even though I always wanted Anne Hathaway to wear it Karolina def rocks the crap out of this dress

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2011 at 23:34 #

      Me too Re: Anne Hathaway

  18. Jennesia May 12, 2011 at 01:18 #

    The dress is fabulous and glamorous and gorgeous and all that but that hair aged her so much.

  19. Tahj May 12, 2011 at 04:40 #

    yes! Finally someone wore my favorite dress from that collection. It dazzles!
