Liya Kebebe In Proenza Schouler – ‘Cosmopolis’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Whilst everyone at the ‘Cosmopolis’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere was wearing a gown, Liya Kebebe went left.

The model/actress wore a custom Proenza Schouler dress inspired by the Fall 2012 collection.

Her peacock embroidered silk halter dress with a black mesh hemline was accented with a thin belt.

I love her accessories, especially those open toe booties. She also carried a black Louis Vuitton clutch.

Only a model, sorry, supermodel can work this look on a Cannes red carpet amongst a sea of gowns and own it.

A rouge lip colour provided the finishing touches to her downtown chic meet the French Riviera look.

    the hemline puts the whole look off . . . . .

    Wow, surprisingly, I quite like this. It’s a little too mini for my taste but the design is very cool. She wears it very well and confidently.

    The sexy booties work perfectly with the dress, great legs.

    It’s a cool dress but a tad too casual for a Cannes premiere.

    This is something I want to see Kristen Stewart wearing at a photocall. It would’ve been so perfect.

      Totally agree. Proenza Schoulder is kinda perfect for KS. Do you think Kristen gonna have to shorten this dress if she wear it?

  9. Fanny May 25, 2012 at 20:19 #

    I love this look. The shoes are to die for.

  10. Susie May 25, 2012 at 20:29 #

    Love this dress. It has really interesting details and guaranteed to stand out. You’re right that not just anyone can make this work, and she is werking the heck out of it.

      +1. Wow.

  11. Reagan May 25, 2012 at 20:56 #

    This shouldn’t work but it does. She sells it.

    • Alina May 26, 2012 at 07:33 #

      I agree.

  12. Rebecca Z May 25, 2012 at 20:58 #

    This is a knockout–very different, but as you say, she carries it off really well.

  13. d May 25, 2012 at 21:12 #

    she made it work very well, but is it really for cannes..

  14. Carolina May 25, 2012 at 21:41 #

    Gorgeous look, extremely well worn. Cannes or not, it’s got my vote.

  15. adralina May 26, 2012 at 02:04 #

    love this look, the dress is incredible and the shoes are perfect!

  16. grazia May 26, 2012 at 04:12 #

    I love this. MUST find similar booties. The apron-ish halter reminds me of Fool’s Met Ball dress. Also I believe her name is Kebede not Kebebe just fyi.

    Standout! Beautiful. Unique. Confident. My eyes went straight to her when I opened the blog and saw the best dressed poll. I didn’t even recognize who she was, which made me all the more curious about “this news girl.” Then as I scrolled down and read Liya’s name, I went “oh, no wonder.”
