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.

  • Tahj

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

  • Jennesia

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

  • Thomas Monks

    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

      Me too Re: Anne Hathaway

  • Emi

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

  • I think up till now this is probably my favorite.

  • Karen

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

  • maria

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

  • dee

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

  • IloveNorway

    Finally someone wore this!

  • mol

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

    • Fashion Critic

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

  • 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.

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

  • Amelia

    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.

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

  • fromchi-town

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

  • Lils

    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!

  • Elena

    ugh! the shoesssss. otherwise, perfect.

    • Rebecca

      You said it!

    • smolls

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

  • Marvel

    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.

  • Alina

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