Clotilde Courau In Valentino – ‘The Search’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Clotilde Courau In Valentino - ‘The Search’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Clotilde Courau attended ‘The Search’ premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 21) in Cannes, France.

The actress wore a Valentino gold lace Pre-Fall 2014 gown with a plunging neckline, which you may remember seeing on Naomie Harris at the NAACP Image Awards back in February.

Before yesterday, one of my rules at Cannes was “no repeats”, but I will now add, “unless you can do better”.

While I don’t think Clotilde’s pendant necklace and sleek back hairstyle is going one better, it does give us variation on a look I thought was pretty one-dimensional.

    Yes, I think one might forgive a repeat if it is done differently, as in this case. The pendant gives the gown a whole different feel and I like it. She looks very nice.

    (I personally prefer Naomie’s version but then, I’m a big Naomie fan and love her minimalist style.)

      I agree on all points.

    I much prefer Naomie’s styling.

    This is such a beautiful dress that I don’t mind seeing it again. I would have preferred the necklace with out the pendant. But like the others, I prefer the gown on Naomie. The contrast with her skin tone was delicious.

    The chunky necklace is overpowering and the hair is awful, much prefer Naomie.

      …although I agree that Naomie’s presentation was a bit flat, that’s the reason I didn’t pick her that week, I was a bit bored but I just can’t get on board with Clotilde’s hair.

      I agree Nat!

    The idea of adding a necklace is one thing but she could’ve at least picked one that matched the dress. This one feels completely out of place. I also don’t like the hair. Not a winning repetition for me. Naomie’s version is far superior.

    I quite like it. The hairstyle with the statement necklace is giving this gown a very different vibe.

    I reminded me of someone else, Haley Bennet from the MET Gala:

    Same fabric I think, and since I barely know Haley but I remembered her I think I like Haley’s “version” the most haha.
