More fashionable femmes—specifically, the model set—were out in force for ‘The Beguiled’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Wednesday (May 24).
Cindy Bruna: The French model stunned in a Georges Hobeika Couture petal-pink gown enlightened with allover glimmering embellishment. While the top was rather sheer, I was still taken by the gorgeous swoop of the undulating train, with Cindy of course striking the ultimate pose to breathe additional life into the dress.
Jasmine Tookes: Subtly shaded in lavender, this Georges Chakra Spring 2017 Couture gown maintained the epitome of classic sophistication. I love the one-shoulder silhouette’s fresh, modern edge that was primarily imbued by the wrapped panels. Jimmy Choo heels and Boucheron jewels completed the effect that may have been on the more minimal side for Cannes but still made a mighty impact.
Elsa Hosk: The dreaded two Cs: creases and constriction. Not only did Elsa’s Alberta Ferretti gown appear to be the wrong size through the bodice, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this many wrinkles on the red carpet. This dress certainly didn’t travel well and should have never passed ‘go’ on the red carpet, as just about anything else would have been a better last-minute option. Christian Louboutin ‘Benedetta’ sandals completed the look.
Liu Wen: While this gown had a sense of elegance, it could have used a bit of support in the bust area. The Chopard earrings would have been enough, as the necklace didn’t work with the neckline.
Hailey Baldwin: This Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture gown held some pretty strong potential, given its graphic-glam edge. I wish it hadn’t been slit so high to reveal the bodysuit underneath. Plus, that leg jut made the unfortunately clunky Stuart Weitzman ‘Swagger’ sandals all the more readily apparent. Hailey’s earrings, on the other hand, were absolutely dazzling.
Toni Garrn: I can see this cutout Galvan Pre-Fall 2017 dress fitting in just fine at a Victoria’s Secret after party, but for the Cannes red carpet, I would have expected more. Avakian jewels added sparkle to the standard, skin-is-in look.
Izabel Goulart: There is little that Izabel can’t wear, but I wasn’t totally sold on this Roberto Cavalli Couture gown styled with Chopard jewels. Call it a new rush of sheer fatigue. Also, it was a lot of dress and a lot of hair. Perhaps a sleeker ponytail would have sufficed. However, I am certain that it was a work of art, with the intricate level of embellishment.
