Gemma Arterton In Gucci – ‘Once Upon A Time In America’ – Gucci Film Foundation Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Gemma Arterton sparkled on the red carpet at the ‘Once Upon A Time In America’ – Gucci Film Foundation’ premiere during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals this evening.

The British actress donned a one-of-a-kind Gucci gown for the occasion.

Her fully-beaded silver gown with organza straps is a work of art.

My only disappointments were the gold earrings (one should not mix metals) and her updo.

A sleeker hairstyle would be preferred.

    Is it just me or it she getting heavier?

    • Carolina Roq


    • that’s what i noticed too.. but as long as she’s happy her weight shan’t faze us!

      but yes the dress is beautiful, and she looks rather good in it, but her hair shoulda been let down, i don’t mind the gold earrings too much though.

  • Amy

    nice dress

  • pipsqueak

    Beautiful gown but not quite fitting for her body. But what’s truly disappointing is the updo, especially when viewed from the side. In the second picture, she looked like a crazy supporting character in a Hugh Grant rom-com or a crazy BFF to Sally Hawkins in the movie Happy Go Lucky.

  • sara

    i don’t care about the hairstyle since she looks sooo beautiful

  • robbie

    the perfect accessory would have been a bird and a few eggs, because that hair looks a mess!

    the dress is ruined by the straps.

  • Christine

    Pretty beading. Love it!

  • Zineb

    The gown is similar to another Gucci Premiere gown that Salma wore last year to Cannes
    And I love it !

  • Andrea

    What an absolutely beautiful woman, no fake curves, no bones or ribs poking out. Wish this was a more common sight on red carpets.

  • Anj

    Her earrings match some of the beading in her dress. Mixing gold and silver is an outdated fashion rule much like black and navy. I don’t see a problem with either.

    • Fee

      Agreed. Metals can be mixed if done properly (not like here) 🙂
      Gemma’s had some pre-Cannes ‘freshening’ done I’d bet! Such a shame, she has a great face but couldn’t resist temptation obviously

  • sahil

    this gown is simply wow but thumbs down 2 her stylig which killed beauty of this art gucci peice
    It’s a shame, nothing is working right for me in her look

  • Grace Patricia

    I like this “mixing metals” thing. I just don’t like her very messy hair.

  • Carolina

    I’d be interested in a closeup, because to me it appears that there is actually gold – or bronze – in the beading of this gown. Aside from that, the dress and hair beautifully showcase her gorgeous skin tone. This is dead on, for me.

  • Rebecca Z

    This all looks really blah to me–no color, boring dress, uninspired styling. Not a fan.

  • sahil

    this gown is simply wow.. but thumbs down to her styling part..
    nothing is working good for me

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    It’s Cannes. Just-got-out-of-the-shower hair and careless accessories do not cut it.
    Not to mention that the bodice of the dress is not flattering.

  • roxy

    I think the colour of the dress is too cold against her skin tone. She should have worn warmer make-up as she looks kind of washed out

  • A.

    Little dull for my liking

  • Mindy

    Beautiful gown and a beautiful girl, but it’s very unflattering. Gemma should learn to dress for her body type.

    • Alina

      I agree with you.

  • This flawless queen. I am totally inobjective when it comes to this woman. Have you not pointed the gold earings, I would have realized how much I dislike it.

  • Fer

    And THIS is how you ruin a gorgeous dress with just the most awful styling ever. Thank you.

  • Nat39

    Silver is such an obvious choice, gold earrings why?? doesn’t make sense, I just don’t get it. Agree on the hairstyle as well, it’s too messy.

  • Tina

    This Cannes festival has been SPECTACULAR! A never-ending row of drool-worthy dresses. Love this dress on her. I don’t really mind the earrings because it’s not screaming for attention. Great look!

  • Jones19

    Totally agree FC, the updo is too sloppy and the earrings should be silver. Otherwise this gown is hugging her in all the right places.

  • Yeliz

    For some reason I’m not wowed by this look. I agree that the gown is a work of art though.
