Cannes Film Festival Day 7 Red Carpet Roundup

Day 7 of the Cannes Film Festival brought with it some stunning entrances as part of the 70th anniversary celebration. Here are more looks that took to the red carpet on Tuesday (May 23)

Irina Shayk: The model wasn’t at the 70th screening but she was at the ‘Hikari (Radiance)’ premiere, where it would seem to have taken the title of the film into account in her lemon-bright Atelier Versace custom gown styled with Lorraine Schwartz canary yellow diamonds to match. The dress was not only sheer Versace with its ruched, slit seductiveness, it was also sheer through and through although its lemony hue somewhat distracted from the see-through effect.

Bianca Balti: For the 70th anniversary screening, Bianca opted for a Dolce and Gabbana Alta Moda embroidered gown styled with DeGrisogono statement earrings. With a faint kimono-esque style, the dress held a sense of restrained elegance—although I did find the embellished heels to be unnecessary to complete the picture.

Guan Xiaotong: One word came to mind when I saw this Zuhair Murad Spring 2016 Couture confection, and that word was ‘pretty.’ The fantasy of embroidery amid the pastel colour palette and the high-low silhouette was truly a sweetly appealing look for the young starlet, with contrasting Chopard jewels adding a bold finish to its charms.

Shu Qi: The lemony colour came out to play again in this Alexis Mabille Spring 2017 gown, but I couldn’t make lemonade out of the strained construction and puffy fit of this design.

Ashley Benson: This was a lot of dress for the petite Ashley, as the floral-print Erdem ball gown somewhat swallowed her from the waist down. If nothing else, a sleeker updo would have been preferred. Messika jewels rounded out the look.

Isabelle Huppert: I was thrilled to see Isabelle cut the sophisticated yet spirited profile she does best in this custom Louis Vuitton gown that featured a glamorous array of embellishment against the beautiful hue of the light-blue skirt. Chopard jewels completed the look.

Carole Bouquet: Opting for a short look, Carole went to the Chanel Fall 2016 Couture collection for inspiration. The fit around the shoulders and bust was a bit bothersome, but it was the head-scratching clash between the green clutch and the teal pumps that caught my eye first.

Laetitia Casta: Riffing on gothic glamour, Laetitia did follow the girls-or-gams rule by highlighting her cleavage and lining the skirt of this Christian Dior Couture gown. But, I still cannot say that the sheer, shirred effect caught my fancy.

Liu Wen: Looking more glamorous than some of the gown-clad girls, Liu exuded a languid-luxe mood in this crystallized Jean Paul Gaultier jumpsuit and matching jacket. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I was instantly drawn to the effortlessly chic way she wore this look with Chopard jewels.

Barbara Palvin: The embellishment was a work of art in this Armani Privé Fall 2016 Couture gown, but the fit of the bust and the long dip of the plunge threw me off.

    I’m not feeling any of these looks.

    I’m not impressed by any of them. The dress of Bianca Balti fits her bad, couture shouldn’t do this. I like Isabelle Huppert but I’m not crazy about her dress. Laetitia Casta… sexy dress, nonsense necklace, she need bracelets instead and messy hair.

    Liu Wen looks coolly glamorous. Irina Shayk looks good too.

    Liu Wen is my favorite of this bunch. She looks great and so effortless.

    Isabelle Huppert: This is what I call dressing up for the event. Love the dress and she was one of my favourites of the night.

    Liu Wen: Extremely cool and effortless. Love it!

      I know right? I can’t believe she war wearing LV.

  9. Pheephee May 24, 2017 at 03:58 #

    Lui Wen looks great in her so cool suit.

  10. Ari May 24, 2017 at 03:46 #

    Irina is a stunning woman but that dress looks like it belongs more on a Miss America contestant.

  11. Mimi May 24, 2017 at 03:28 #

    Irina is hands down my personal favorite so far at Cannes! She’s unbelievably gorgeous and I cant believe she just had a child!

      That dress is doing so much work on Irina tho, there’s all sorts of corset going on, in a different dress I don’t think she’ll look that shape at all. Not knocking her, she has a 10 wk old baby but I don’t think that’s all her under there

    I only loved Liu Wen’s JPG suit,she is so effortlessly chic.
    How did Barbara Palvin transform from a size 0 to a size 6?isn’t she a model?

    I think Irina is gorgeous but that dress is awful. I’m underwhelmed with the Cannes fashions this year.

    Liu Wen. Perfection. The look is both cool and glamorous, loving the beaded pinstripes, her sleek and sexy styling was on point with the jewels adding a perfect dose of glamour, and she wore the trendy slouchy silhouette so effortlessly. She’s my best dressed of the day. I think she did what Tilda couldn’t in her stiff heavy number.
