Solange Knowles In Stéphane Rolland Couture – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Solange Knowles In Stéphane Rolland Couture - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Solange Knowles made her Cannes Film Festival debut on the red carpet this evening for ‘The Great Gatsby’ premiere, which also served as the opening ceremony.

I remember the hairs that stood up on the back of my neck when I saw this stunning Stéphane Rolland Fall 2012 feather-accented caramel gown taking to the runway. Sadly, the same effect didn’t happen this evening.

While I love the gown, her Chopard jewels and that orange-red lip, the gown loses its fierceness with that thin gold belt.

I would have preferred the warrior princess runway belt and a smaller Jimmy Choo clutch.

Knowing Solange was attending this event, I think I may have set my expectations too high.

Is anyone feeling the mehness of this look?

Naomie Harris In Calvin Klein – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

There was more glamour to be had on the red carpet this evening at ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also served as the opening ceremony, courtesy of Naomie Harris.

The British actress blew me away wearing a Calvin Klein Collection silver bugle beaded strapless gown with a tonal waistband.

Now if you are having a touch of déjà vu, that may be because this look is taking you back to the Vanity Fair Party where Jennifer Lawrence’s Calvin Klein gown had the same sort of bedazzlement.

Looking so sharp you could cut yourself, she styled her look to perfection with no jewels, metallic sandals, and a black satin metal frame bag both by the same designer.

Flawless makeup and a tight bun to highlight her beauty completed her look.

Isla Fisher In Oscar de la Renta – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Isla Fisher took her spot on a rain soaked red carpet this evening as one of the stars of ‘The Great Gatsby’ which opened Cannes Film Festival.

The Australian actress stood out wearing an Oscar de la Renta strapless red/gold dress with multiple choppy layers.

On this occasion, I tend to favour a bare neck with a strapless gown, but her multi-coloured Bulgari Heritage statement necklace enhances her look and prevents it from feeling too one-dimensional, as does her serpent watch from the same collection

Red lips would’ve been too obvious, so she selected a copper colour which closely matches her hair colour.

Wavy tresses provided the finishing touches.

Cara Delevingne was one of the many models to take to the red carpet this evening for ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also served as the opening ceremony.

You won’t be surprised to learn the British model wore Burberry.

Her black silk and lace plunging gown was styled with Chopard jewels, red hot lips and served with plenty of attitude.

While this gown is nice enough, there are at least ten looks I prefer on this red carpet.

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.
