Clotilde Courau In Valentino Couture – ‘La Tete Haute’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Clotilde Courau In Valentino Couture -  ‘La Tete Haute’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Clotilde Courau attended the opening ceremony and premiere of ‘La Tete Haute’ (‘Standing Tall’) during the 2015 Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday (May 13) in Cannes, France.

The French beauty usually sticks to a Elie Saab, but on this occasion she donned a minimalist Valentino Fall 2014 Couture dress with stately cape detail.

Had this been worn by someone like Tilda Swinton, I would’ve begrudged the necklace as Tilda is all about keeping it very simple. Here, the ruby stone Bulgari High Jewelry necklace only serves to enhance the sophisticated look.

Front Row @ Elie Saab Spring 2015 Couture

Elie Saab

Elie Saab showcased his Spring 2015 Couture collection in Paris, France, on Wednesday (January 28) with a front row full of celebrities.

Nieves Alvarez: Having walked for Stephane Rolland the day before, the model was off duty, no doubt eyeing up options for the Goya Awards (the Spanish Oscars), which takes place on February 7. She kept her look simple wearing a black Elie Saab jumpsuit spliced with lace panels, which she styled with a gold clutch.

Eugenia Silva: Looking like the odd woman out, the model was the only celeb not to opt for black, standing out by selecting a heavenly minty-green look from Elie Saab’s Resort 2015 collection.

Dita Von Teese: The burlesque star was smouldering in the front row wearing an LBD with sultry lace panels, which was oh-so-very Dita, with signature styling to boot.

Clotilde Courau: No stranger to wearing Elie Saab, the French beauty wore a black Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture frock in a familiar silhouette with oversized beaded detailing. If you are having a mild case of déjà vu, that may be because Julia Roberts’s Emmy dress had the same embellishments.

Even I have to admit that I prefer the all-black looks here. They are so chic and elegant, as an Elie Saab woman should be. Eugenia, while she looked lovely, dressed for the wrong season.

Valentino Spring 2015 Front Row

Valentino’s Spring 2015 collection was presented during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 30) in Paris, France.

Clotilde Courau: The French beauty was a glorious vision of loveliness wearing a red Valentino Resort 2015 sleeveless ladylike dress given an edge with a leather laser-cut studded collar. I also love the contrasting blue-grey pumps she’s working here.

Olivia Palermo: Working a chic, sharp coat and shorts combo in a vivid green hue, the socialite once again opted for her python dual-colour clutch, adding a pair of Aquazzura ‘Sexy Thing’ booties to her look. You can always rely on Olivia to present a chic look with an interesting twist.

Ciara: *Sighs* Methinks this look would’ve worked better with the coat buttoned and belted.

Clotilde Courau In Roland Mouret – Bulgari Cocktail Event

Clotilde Courau In Roland Mouret - Bulgari Cocktail Event

Clotilde Courau attended the Bulgari cocktail event held at Apicius during Couture Fashion Week on Tuesday (July 8) in Paris, France.

She wore a form-fitting black and white striped Roland Mouret Spring 2014 dress that stopped below her knees.

This dress has a sexy edge with its green leather bodice, which Clotilde enhanced with a leather waistband.

Adding a Saint Laurent blazer slung over her shoulders dialled down the sex appeal and gave the look a ladylike polish, with the host’s jewels lighting up her neck.

Black pumps and a black clutch completed her look.

You may remember that Katy Perry wore this same dress earlier this year. Night and day.

Clotilde Courau In Valentino – ‘The Search’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Clotilde Courau In Valentino - ‘The Search’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Clotilde Courau attended ‘The Search’ premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 21) in Cannes, France.

The actress wore a Valentino gold lace Pre-Fall 2014 gown with a plunging neckline, which you may remember seeing on Naomie Harris at the NAACP Image Awards back in February.

Before yesterday, one of my rules at Cannes was “no repeats”, but I will now add, “unless you can do better”.

While I don’t think Clotilde’s pendant necklace and sleek back hairstyle is going one better, it does give us variation on a look I thought was pretty one-dimensional.

Clotilde Courau In Elie Saab - ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2? Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Clotilde Courau was one of the first to arrive on the red carpet for the ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2′ premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 16) in Cannes, France.

Portraying an elegant charm, she wore an Elie Saab Fall 2014 black strapless gown with a bold floral print, which she styled with a dazzling gold necklace from the Bulgari High Jewelry Collection.

I find both the silhouette and print particularly eye-catching here.
