Models @ The Chopard Party In Elie Saab Couture

Chopard Backstage Arrivals - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Models Liu Wen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Arlenis Sosa, Eva Herzigová, Petra Nemcova and Adriana Lima, as well as Co-President of Chopard Caroline Scheufele, attended the Chopard dinner held at the Cannes-Mandelieu Aerodrome during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 19) in Cannes, France.

This picture looks like a scene backstage at an Elie Saab Couture show, although the man himself is missing from the shot.

Each the ladies wore a mixture of archive pastel-hued Elie Saab Couture pieces with Chopard jewels.

Liu Wen wore a blue Spring 2010 Couture gown. Alessandra’s green strapless creation hails from the Spring 2011 Couture collection, as does Arlenis’ ivory one-shoulder lightly embellished gown.

Eva also went strapless, with her summery lemon Spring 2010 Couture gown. Petra stunned in a nude Spring 2011 Couture gown, while Adriana rounded out Elie’s elite lovelies with a strapless Spring 2011 Couture gown with draped overlay.

It’s always hard to pick a favourite Elie Saab gown, especially when worn by such beautiful women as we have here, but Liu Wen was the stand-out for me – although I also found myself really enamoured by the green hue against Alessandra’s olive skin.

Who stands out for you?

    Liu Wen instantly stands out to me too for the beautiful light blue colour and draping.

    Liu Wen and Alessandra….I love the colour of their dresses!! The jewellery does help…

    This may not be a popular opinion but here goes…
    The dresses are all so ordinary and uninspiring. Ive seen this done a thousand times, nothing fresh, nothing memorable.

        To be fair to Elie Saab, these dresses are from a few season ago which might explain why you think you’ve seen them before.

        I still think they’re beautiful and the colours are gorgeous.
        Alessandra and Adriana are my favourites.

      they are showing off archive pieces.

    • Marcel May 20, 2014 at 01:12 #

      I completely agree. Year after year the silhouette doesn’t change: a corseted bodice and a flowing skirt with a thigh high slit.

    • Kathy May 20, 2014 at 03:06 #

      Well, the 6 dresses identified are from two collections, so yes, there is a bit of repetition. And while it’s true that we’ve seen this silhouette many times, I’d argue that these gowns are memorable due to their quality & construction. Also, keep in mind that Elie Saab makes more than just princess gowns, especially for his Resort and Pre-Fall collections.

      +1! I tottaly agree. Besides, I can’t believe it’s couture ;)

    Liu Wen

    Alessandra looks amazing, perfect color for her amazing tan, the jewels are to die for!

  7. sophie May 20, 2014 at 00:30 #

    They all look the same. Alessandra’s heels are too heavy.

  8. admmgz May 20, 2014 at 00:37 #

    They all look gorgeous but my faves are Alessandra (minus her heels) & Adriana

  9. amy May 20, 2014 at 01:00 #

    Liu is my fave here. Adriana dress is lovely but there’s too much jewelry.

  10. Marybeth May 20, 2014 at 01:08 #

    I like Liu Wen and Arlenis Sosa best but they all look good. It certainly makes a lovely group photo!

  11. Prudence May 20, 2014 at 01:26 #

    God I wish they would all remove the jewels, theyre so big an unnecessary. the jewels especially kill Adrianna’s outfit which would have been my fave. Alessandra also looks great.

    • Jennifer May 20, 2014 at 02:23 #

      They’re at a Chopard party. They literally have to wear jewels.

  12. Kathy May 20, 2014 at 02:58 #

    What a GORGEOUS photo…so many beautiful gowns and jewels. My favorite is Liu Wen’s dress, the color is just heavenly. Arlenis’ dress is particularly interesting, with the twisted bodice/strap.

  13. cherrysoftness May 20, 2014 at 03:04 #

    All these beautiful gowns and goddess-like models in matching sorbet shades – they look like bridesmaids in a wedding in heaven.

  14. Lee May 20, 2014 at 04:28 #

    All of them are wearing terrible shoes!

  15. alex May 20, 2014 at 05:21 #

    Liu easily won me over.

  16. ber May 20, 2014 at 05:25 #

    The dress looks a million times better on Alessandra than on the runway model. Prime example of how all-white models is terrible for the fashion industry.

  17. Alina May 20, 2014 at 06:58 #

    Liu and Alessandra. What a gorgeous picture!

  18. Iva May 20, 2014 at 08:18 #

    Apart from the shoes, Alessandra looks really nice.
    It is interesting how more than half of these women manages to look tacky in an Ellie Saab dress.

  19. Dhppy May 20, 2014 at 09:17 #

    OH, so many beautiful gowns! I like Petra Nemcova’s the most, though I admire the detail on the bodice of Adriana Lima.

    • Stel May 20, 2014 at 12:01 #

      +1!

  20. Jones19 May 20, 2014 at 09:53 #

    Liu Wen is also my favorite.

  21. EmmaWoodhouse May 21, 2014 at 23:11 #

    Thigh-high slits and sheer always reads tacky to me. The color of Liu’s is my fave, for style (mostly) I’ll go with Arlenis. I like how they look like a bouquet.

    The dresses are a bit boring, but idk all the models wore it so perfect!!
