‘Yomeddine’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

The ‘Yomeddine’ Cannes Film Festival premiere this evening (May 9) had a number of beauties in attendance. They joined Louise BourgoinLi Yuchun and Julianne Moore.

Xenia Tchoumitcheva:  The model had a playful punky moment in Ellery Pre-Fall 2018. With the sharp check bodice and voluminous black skirt, it certainly wasn’t the typical Cannes gown, but there seems to be construction issues with it staying in the proper place. I have the urge to pull it up a few inches. The Edie Parker clutch enhanced the mood, but I foresee the braided buns being divisive.

Wang Likun: With the layers of white tulle, this Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture gown was an appropriate choice for the dancer-actress. There is such an elegant grace to the look. The embroidered bodice adds allure.

Irina Shayk: The Russian beauty was clad in a plunging black Twinset gown which brought to mind Georgia May Jagger’s. With its draped asymmetrical skirt and sparkling jewels this look had the drama I was hoping to see with the other model’s outfit.

Nieves Alvarez: The Spanish beauty oozed dramatic allure in an Alberta Ferretti gown and Bulgari jewels. Trimmed with ruffles and bedazzled with sequins, the dress didn’t need any accouterments but the weighty choker serves as a bold counterpoint.

Leomie Anderson: Another beauty in Twinset, the British model brightened things up with pleated layers of pale yellow. The simple styling allowed the magnificent drape of the skirt and decorative lace neckline to take center stage.

Kiko Mazur: This Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture dress was made to be twirled in with its flowing skirt. It is a quieter look and I foresee some critiquing the colour combination as drab. It was refreshing to see the marriage of dove gray and seafoam, especially with the gown crafted in a netted fabric.

Tallia Storm: After a revealing look yesterday, she went for bewitching allure in Jean-Paul Benielli Couture. Many took issue with the exposed nature of her previous outfit so I’m curious to see how this one will be received.

Marica Pellegrinelli: The Italian actress struck a pose in a champagne style bedecked with crystal embellishment. The subdued hue and A-line skirt balance the low neckline. The look was cinched with a coordinating belt. With the dramatic gown, the jewels are pretty much lost.

    Tallia looks awful. That is one disgusting dress.

    Leomie is looking sensational!

    That was the worst possible angle for Irina. She looked amazing.

    Nieves is the best here, the rest are meh…

  6. Alina May 10, 2018 at 08:41 #

    Wow, even Nieves is kinda boring here.

    Wang Likun looked really elegant here.

      +1 My favorite.

    Wang and Kiko both look lovely, if a little subdued.

    Worst Cannes so far.

    Leomie looks like a flawless doll, in the best sense of the word. The dress works beautifully with her skin and the look is delightful.
    Kiko and Wang look nice, if uninspired.
    I agree with the fit issues of Xenias but at least she brought something unique.
    Tallias is awful. The rest are meh.

    God, I hope this picks up. But I think I remember us saying the same thing last year. It took a couple of days….so heres hoping for tomorrow.

    Leomie must be one of the most beautiful women alive

      +1. The yellow is spectacular on her.

    Boring. Tallia’s dress is particularly hideous.

    Wang from this bunch. So far Cannes has gone for Meh to Tacky.

    I miss the princess, show stopping gowns. What’s going on with Cannes? It’s lost its fashion excitement. Maybe its me, but it’s not the same anymore.

    I hope it picks up soon.

      I’m hoping it gets better in the next few days when more of the A-listers show up

      • Original Meme May 10, 2018 at 00:19 #

        Me too though Cate, Julianne and Kristen are A-listers.

        • Christine May 10, 2018 at 02:05 #

          I don’t know, Cate is a BIG as it gets, and she has not wowed me at all.

          I mean…. an Ill-fitted suit (Stella McCartney of all freaking designers *cues eye roll*) and a recycled gown she’s worn years ago to an award show has not impressed me.

          I don’t know….. I don’t want to get my hopes, but here we are on Day 2 and it’s quiet. Apart from Li Yuchun at the very least kept it interesting with her choices.

    • brat May 10, 2018 at 02:12 #

      yup not impressed Sonam Kapoor is not here to show them how it’s done. What could she possibly be doing that’s more important? Getting married, of course. I weep bitter tears at her absence.

      Like I said before,this is Cannes 2014 happening all over again, That year all the major drama queens like Fan Bingbing, Ashiwarya Rai were absent and the red carpet were completely lackluster.
