Alexandra Maria Lara In Elie Saab Couture – ‘On The Road’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Alexandra Maria Lara was breathtaking on the red carpet tonight for the ‘On the Road’ Cannes Film Festival premiere.

The Romanian-born German actress wore one of my favourite pieces from the Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture collection.

What a stunning creation.

She opted to keep the styling simple for her fully-beaded short sleeve gown which was accented with a velvet floral appliqué at the waist.

A light red lip colour and diamond bracelet completed her look.

Needless to say she is one of my faves of the festival, even though this was on my wish list for Hilary Swank.

    Incredibly beautiful! I know it has short sleeves and a sheer skirt, but something about it reminds me of Russian royalty (another Alexandra). I’ve never seen her before, but I hope she’ll show up more frequently here.

    FC, I know it´s late but can u post pics of the Argentinian ambassadors of L’Oréal? Some of them looked amazing in Cannes and We have never seen someone from our country here!

      Sorry, but I am not taking requests. There are too many events to cover.

      • ArgentineGuy May 26, 2012 at 08:07 #

        That´s ok, no problem! You do an incredible work FC, Love it.

    BDOTD! I don’t like the sheer skirt but it’s so subtle I hardly notice it. This dress is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO gorgeous–one of my faves from this AMAZING collection!!!! Alexandra is a knockout in it. Definitely my BDOTD so far.

    This gown is exquisite, heavenly, amazing.
    The dress itself deserve a BDOTW poll without BDOTD polling IMO.

  6. Beta May 24, 2012 at 09:22 #

    lovely! she looks fantastic 🙂
    the work on that dress is exquisite

  7. Jess May 24, 2012 at 09:19 #

    Absolutely stunning and so delicate. Best dressed!

  8. DM May 24, 2012 at 09:04 #

    Thank you as ever FC for the great coverage at Cannes.
    This gown is exquisite! The skirt part reminds me of rain and the top part like dew or stars. What we ordinary girls would give to wear a dress like this just once! Sigh.

  9. Lalitha May 24, 2012 at 08:07 #

    Beautiful dress: more like a work of art! I love this.

  10. Vidhya May 24, 2012 at 04:14 #

    He truly is the King. Adore! BDOTY in my list!

  11. lily May 24, 2012 at 04:08 #

    My Gid if I can have it for my wedding I will.. lol Btw FC I know they are celebrities but do they have to pay for the dresses or they kinda like borrow it from the designers or the designers give to the free of charge?

    • Fashion Critic May 24, 2012 at 09:07 #

      they are loaned

      • lily May 24, 2012 at 18:28 #

        ow i see thx FC,finally someone give me the answers for years of curiosity. lol

  12. Mia Spring May 24, 2012 at 04:05 #

    I’m speechless…What a stunning creation!
    This is one of my favorite at Cannes this year so far

  13. JC May 24, 2012 at 03:29 #

    She looks HEAVENLY!!!! Elie Saab is a GENIUS designer!

  14. mari May 24, 2012 at 01:47 #

    Can I say that I want this in the BDOTY poll?

  15. Dhppy May 23, 2012 at 23:47 #

    I think the overlay of her dress is more sheer than on the runway. You can see her neckline much more, and the stripes of the bodice are much more apparent. Perhaps, Lara requested a sparkle reduction. Though I slightly prefer the runway version, it’s still quite beautiful.

  16. Marybeth May 23, 2012 at 22:25 #

    So very beautiful!
    Just perfect.

    I like it – i think it looks better on the runway- the colour of all the dresses from this Elie Saab collection is better on the runway- I think it’s the lighting – still she looks good

  19. olivia May 23, 2012 at 21:31 #

    wow, breathtaking

  20. irina May 23, 2012 at 21:20 #

    I’m officially addicted to your blog…I don’t know how many times I checked it today LOL…Absolutely beautiful dress btw!!

  21. Barbs May 23, 2012 at 21:16 #

    One of my best dressed this year at Cannes! Gorgeous!

  22. Rebecca Z May 23, 2012 at 20:52 #

    It is very beautiful and she looks lovely. Wish she had worn some emerald earrings.

  23. Mariazinha May 23, 2012 at 20:51 #

    I think it’s my favorite on so far.. Just gorgeous!!

  24. Jones19 May 23, 2012 at 20:47 #

    This gown is so beautiful and she does it justice. Love this.

  25. Nat May 23, 2012 at 20:45 #

    Elie Saab is KING. That would be all.

    No, ok, kudos to Alexandra here, too. Her slender figure does the dress justice, plus I’m glad she kept it simple with hair, makeup and jewels.

  26. Valerie May 23, 2012 at 20:32 #

    Say what you want, but an Elie Saab dress does it all the time. She looks stunning.

  27. Emi May 23, 2012 at 20:25 #

    A dreamy gown, really.

  28. Riley May 23, 2012 at 20:19 #

    I love her hair and makeup with the look. Gorgeous head to toe. I like that she didn’t line the gown, as we can see her legs, which is a sexy touch.

  29. Sea May 23, 2012 at 20:17 #

    words defy description for this dress. imho jolie & kruger will both look beautiful in it too.

  30. dee May 23, 2012 at 20:16 #

    This is one of my favorites from this collection and she looks stunning.

  31. A. May 23, 2012 at 20:16 #

    Exquisite dress. She looks like a goddess. Elie Saab, you’re in a different league altogether. Gorgeousness

  32. Yeliz May 23, 2012 at 20:16 #


  33. Emmeline May 23, 2012 at 20:13 #

    Simply gorgeous. For me, the guests are outshining the leading ladies.

  34. Zineb May 23, 2012 at 20:13 #

    That’s a one of a king design.
    Had I known that I would see so little of Elie Saab this year in Cannes I would’ve been more thankful and grateful for the couple of dresses Fan Bingbing wore especially the cape one !

  35. Anj May 23, 2012 at 20:03 #

    That is such an enchanting dress!

  36. Nat39 May 23, 2012 at 20:02 #

    Flawless, with the polished hairstyle presented better than on the runway. Another beautiful creation from E. Saab.

  37. Ioana May 23, 2012 at 19:59 #

    a ROMANIAN woman in Elie Saab Couture. I’m so proud of her, even if she left the country a long time ago.

    Breathtaking… and yes, I may be biased, but the dress really suits her fragile figure!

    • Alina May 24, 2012 at 12:28 #

      I’m with you! I’m soooo proud!

      She looks effortlessly stunning.

      • bianca May 24, 2012 at 22:13 #

        Way to go romanians!Let’s hope we get to see more of this in the future.I am VERY PROUD of her.

    • Andreea May 25, 2012 at 17:48 #

      A BEAUTIFUL romanian woman in Elie Saab Couture !! 🙂
