Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Opening Ceremony And 'The Great Gatsby' Premiere - The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Fan Bingbing joined in the celebration of ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also served as the opening ceremony.

Sadly, she didn’t use the occasion to showcase one of her countrymen’s Asian-inspired creations like she has done for the past three years at the opening ceremony; instead she wore a custom Louis Vuitton gown.

This is the first time the French fashion house has created a gown especially for an Asian actress.

The duchess satin strapless gown with a grey and red sequined bodice was styled with a Louis Vuitton minaudière and Chopard jewels.

Do you wish Fan Bingbing had kept up her opening ceremony tradition or are you too swept away by the lusciousness of the gown to consider this an issue?

Julianne Moore In Christian Dior Couture – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Julianne Moore is the third star to take to the red carpet at ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also serves as the Opening Ceremony, this evening wearing a Dior Couture look.

Regular readers know that we don’t usually see this many Dior gowns during the whole festival let along the first night.

While I loved both Nicole Kidman and Zhang Ziyi’s Dior looks, this one falls a bit flat.

I wasn’t too crazy about it on the runway, so adding a train to the organza skirt wasn’t going to change that feeling.

Had the bodice been bedazzled, maybe I would remember this look at the end of the night.

Chopard jewels and silver sandals (which I do love) completed her look.

Florence Welch In Miu Miu – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Florence Welch continued her love affair with Miu Miu when she took to the red carpet for this evening’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also served as the Opening Ceremony.

You may remember she looked amazing in Miu Miu for the New York premiere; in Cannes, not so much.

This look is just too garish for me, from the pepto-bismal pink colour and the polka dots of the dress to the hideous Miu Miu yellow-and-black platforms.

The kooky factor has to be admired, but I wish she selected one of her other favoured brands like Givenchy or Naeem Khan.

I will have nightmares that those shoes graced the Grand Théâtre Lumière tonight.

Freida Pinto In Gucci – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

This is the one I was waiting for. Freida Pinto more than lived up to my expectations this evening while attending ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also serves as the Opening Ceremony.

The Indian actress wore a one-of-a-kind Gucci coral silk chiffon halter gown which was accented with gold-embellished belt and styled with complementary open-toe shoes.

Adding more gold to her look, she selected Chopard earrings which were on full display thanks to her braided updo.

I love the Bollywood feel to this look with the bright colour and opulent accessories.

She looked like she was having a ball on this red carpet.

Giving us our second look within a few hours, Nicole Kidman was a vision of total perfection this evening at ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also serves as the Opening Ceremony.

Wearing Dior, the Australia actress selected a look from the Spring 2013 Couture collection which I’m certain ranked highly on many of your wish lists.

The strapless floral embroidered creation was styled with a coral pair of Dior which beautifully offset the blossoms in her frock.

A high ponytail, Ferragamo clutch and a rouge lip colour completed her look.

She is easily one of my favourites tonight.

Zhang Ziyi In Christian Dior Couture – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Zhang Ziyi used the ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also serves as the Opening Ceremony this evening, to showcase a new ‘do. Thankfully it wasn’t blonde.

The Asian actress sported a crop pixie cut on the red carpet while wearing a look from the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Shunning the usually required gown, Zhang’s edgy new ‘do works perfectly with her navy and fuchsia pink-accented strapless top paired with black pants.

I’m not sure the gold metal waistband was required but it doesn’t take anything away from the look.

A navy satin clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Pivichic’ pumps completed her look.

Yay nor nay on the new ‘do?

Vahina Giocante In Elie Saab – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Vahina Giocante stunned on the red carpet this evening for ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also serves as the Opening Ceremony.

Thanks to the French actress, we didn’t have to wait long for our first Elie Saab red carpet gown at the Grand Théâtre Lumière.

While it’s not from my wish list, I am delighted that she selected this vibrant electric-blue version of the dolman-sleeved gown with sheer inserts which was presented in navy-blue in the look book.

The navy may have blended into the tuxedo-wearing photographers behind her, so this was a smart choice – plus, it was guaranteed to grab my attention considering this is my favourite colour.

A chic updo, red lips, stunning jewels and an Elie Saab clutch to match her gown completed her look.
