Kristin Scott Thomas In Armani Privé – ‘Only God Forgives’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Kristin Scott Thomas In Armani Privé - 'Only God Forgives' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Electric-blue and embellishments??? Is Kristin Scott Thomas trying to give me a heart attack?

The British/French actress combined my two loves this evening on the red carpet for the ‘Only God Forgives’ premiere during Cannes Film Festival.

She took my breath away wearing an Armani long-sleeve gown with a plunging neckline and nipped in waist, which is high on shine and glamour. I’m not usually so enamoured with Kristin’s red carpet looks as they tend to stick to a colour palette of mostly black, but this made me sit up and pay attention.

Emerald jewels seem to be favoured by a lot of celebs this festival season; Kristin’s Chopard earrings and ring shone almost as brightly as her embellished gown.

Does anyone share my obsession with this look?

She carried a Swarovski clutch.

    Kristin Scott Thomas looks fabulous. She understands the importance of choosing a dress that resonates with how she wants to feel while wearing it , ensuring the fit , color, cut and texture.
    That’s why she always looks great !

    Can we acknowledge the faces of the people behind her? On the left side there is obviously something amazing/shocking/fantastic (Kristin herself? Or something else?) but then the people on the right look stoic and unfazed…. 🙂

    This color is sensational!

    This woman is so beautiful!! So ageless and I love this look!

    Love the color and the sparkle. The silhouette is matronly, unflattering, and the neckline is too low.

    I like this dress. I would have liked seeing someone wear the head cover with the dress. Not Kristin. This would have been so cool on the Red Carpet.

    I love her in this. With all its sparkle the gown remains elegant and sophisticated. I actually like her hair styled like this. She is a great actress.

    She looks BDOTW worthy. So gorgeous. Love it!

    Love it! I agree with you, FC–the colour and the sparkle are stunning! Ahhh! 🙂

    Doesn’t anyone else think the runway version is better?

      I DO !

      Totally, 100%!!! I actually find this kind of disastrous on KST. It is SO unflattering. I really like her, but NOT in this dress, although that seems to be the unpopular opinion.

    The intensity of colour and sparkle and contrasting emerald jewels..all spectacular, however the design on her is so plain and ordinarily robe-like I can’t get excited too much about it, not a fan of the hair, but it’s a great look anyway.

  12. gayle May 22, 2013 at 23:28 #

    Elegance personified

  13. B May 22, 2013 at 23:22 #

    YES I DO! I was entranced by this Armani collection, it feels like very little of it made it to the red carpet. It’s like a moon rise over a forest lake. Love it.

  14. Prudence May 22, 2013 at 23:22 #

    UGH. I had saved this look for someone that would wear the full runway look veil, plunge and all to the MET or something. However, the color is divine on her, the hair is not so this is just a good look. not great.

    I would have wished for other shoes, but I guess in combination with the clutch they get a pass. No complaints here, she looks impeccable.

    wow she looks great ! That dress is to die for !! it’s the first look I really like since the beginning of Cannes festival. It’s elegant, subtely sexy and glam, without being over the top.
    Love the fact that she added a touch of glam to her usual classy style.

  17. Moxie May 22, 2013 at 22:58 #

    Beautiful color, but very similar to a lot of Elie Saab gowns.

  18. Yeliz May 22, 2013 at 22:55 #

    Stunning. Not so crazy about the hairstyle, but the gown is so glamorous. Much prefer the plunging neckline on her gown than the one on the runway version.
