Laetitia Casta In Christian Dior Couture - 'Zulu' Cannes Film Festival Premiere and Closing Ceremony

Laetitia Casta attended the Palais des Festivals in France this evening for the ‘Zulu’ premiere and Closing Ceremony for the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

Like Zhang Ziyi, Laetitia also wore a gown from the Dior Spring 2013 Couture collection which featured the same floral appliqués in pink.

As the gowns were somewhat familiar, I guess this is why Laetitia made what appears to be a last minute decision to sling that gold feathered bolero over her shoulders.

I say last minute, because had she had time to really think about it, she would’ve known this was a bad idea.

Inside the venue she wisely removed the offending article, for a much preferable look, sans the tacky gold embellished Louboutin platform peep-toes.

Some of you have stated that Elie Saab, Cavalli, and Dior have been somewhat overexposed at this festival; Is having two similar gowns on the red carpet in one night by the same designer a knock-on effect of that overexposure?
