Karolina Kurkova In Roberto Cavalli – ‘Killing Them Softly’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Karolina Kurkova opted for a highly dramatic look on the red carpet this evening for the ‘Killing Them Softly’ premiere during the Cannes Film Festival.

She donned a Roberto Cavalli Fall 2012 mermaid gown fully embroidered with black paillettes and a leather strap.

Her halter gown was styled with a very dark lip colour — a trend that started at the Met Gala, which we’re also seeing at Cannes.

I love the gown; it’s just the right amount of drama a Cannes premiere needs.

Stunning jewels and a pewter clutch provided the finishing touches.

    I can always count on KK to bring it.
    She literally shut the house down. Goddess.

    The amount of the black paillettes is slightly overwhelming, not liking the leather strap, but I like the overall drama of the look.

    ahh she looks amazing! she is always on her game, this is one of the best looks from cannes imo.

    I think she pretty much ruled the red carpet. What say FC? She looks like she’s channeling goth glamor. And what a coincidence, it’s World Goth Day today :) Definitely one of Cavalli’s best creations on the Fall 2012 collection.

    I intensely dislike this. it’s so dark and gothic and kind of trashy–Morticia Addams trying to be sexy. I do like the paillettes but the look didn’t sit right with me, particularly styled with stark hair and dark lip.

    I really can’t stand that dark lip on this occasion (wasn’t much of a fan either). The gown is gorgeous but I would’ve preferred a red lipstick.

    Stunning, love this look.

    This I love! If you’re going to wear black at Cannes, make it STUNNING.

    The dark red lippie works for me here. I hate it when people slavishly follow a fad without consideration of their outfit and own complexion.

    Karolina nails it, as usual.

    Absolutely breathtaking!

    Love this – she shut it down!!

    Nothing to add, other than I too love this, KK is so gorgeous, everything perfectly styled.

    I am totally tiring with the dark lipcolor thing UNLESS it is clearly needed for a look, like a Gothic look or a futuristic look.

  13. Kaz May 22, 2012 at 22:04 #

    I love it too! Better than the Met Gala IMO. I tried, but I just couldn’t get on board with the turban. This, however, is fantastic.

    • CreoleLady May 23, 2012 at 01:13 #

      ITA, especially the part about the turban.

    • dee May 23, 2012 at 13:57 #

      Agree about the turban.

    For me, she’s been this season’s revelation. I can’t wait to see what else she’ll be pulling out.

  15. Shaina May 22, 2012 at 22:11 #

    Karolina is rocking this dark lip trend! And the dress is just amazing.

  16. Christine May 22, 2012 at 22:30 #

    Stunning! Definitely BDOTD.

  17. Rebecca Z May 22, 2012 at 23:22 #

    Boooring. I do have black sparkly gown fatigue.

  18. Lou May 23, 2012 at 00:19 #

    Love it! Especially love when someone makes a black dress look amazing!!

  19. bm May 23, 2012 at 02:03 #

    Fantastic. Love it.

  20. Jill May 23, 2012 at 05:51 #

    I love the dark lip trend!

  21. Valerie May 23, 2012 at 09:29 #

    Karoline strikes again. However, I would have preferred a red lip color, it would add some color, but I understand what she was going for.

  22. Jess2 May 23, 2012 at 15:00 #

    I think they have gone a bit ott with the paillettes but she does look amazing, loving the drama off this look and I love the lip colour. Karolina alsways knows how to bring it!!

  23. Alina May 23, 2012 at 17:39 #

    She looks beautiful, but it’s hard to top her Rachel Zoe look.

  24. Amy May 23, 2012 at 21:52 #

    KK is always a stunner on the RC!! I love the dress, even if I’m no fan of dark red lips it works fine on her.

  25. Parvati May 24, 2012 at 20:27 #

    The gown is nice, but nothing to get too excited about, in my opinion, and I really dislike her hair and make-up.
