Monica Bellucci In Dolce & Gabbana – 2017 Cannes Film Festival Closing Ceremony

As mistress of ceremonies, Monica Bellucci brought the 2017 Cannes Film Festival to an end yesterday evening (May 29) at the closing ceremony.

I knew the Italian actress would we Dolce & Gabbana on this occasion, the only surprising thing was she didn’t wear D&G throughout.

The rich embroidered design really lived up to the grand occasion and the grandiose of the women herself.

But, if I was to nitpick, I wish the tulle layers has been black.

Despite my misgivings about her Chanel look, this was a flawless run for me.

Monica Bellucci In Gucci – Cannes 70th Anniversary Dinner

As you know I wasn’t excited about Monica Bellucci’s Chanel red carpet look, but I was blow away by the Gucci gown she wore to the Cannes Film Festival 70th anniversary dinner last night (May 23).

That’s mostly because I don’t ever recall seeing Monica opt for so much detail.

Her gown which is emboldened with eye-catching butterfly and insect embroideries and rainbow sequin stripes is a huge break from the norm; and while I’m thoroughly intrigued, I do wish she done something different with her hair.

Not only because it would’ve made for a refreshing change, but also to show off that butterfly detail on the neckline.

The Gucci clutch might be too big for some peoples taste, but I think it ties the look nicely together.

Monica Bellucci In Chanel – Cannes Film Festival 70th Anniversary Celebration

The mistress of ceremonies is usually only seen on at the opening and closing ceremony, but as this was a special night celebrating the 70th anniversary of Cannes Film Festival, Monica Bellucci was back on the red carpet.

I have to say I’m not entirely sure about this gold sequin Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 gown on the Italian beauty.

I don’t want to like it just because it’s not black, because in truth, her best looks so far have all been outstanding in black.

My problem is this look isn’t allowing her true beauty to really shine through.

This is a rare miss for Monica. I’m almost certain I would’ve loved this black crepe or black velvet, as the silhouette is gorgeous.

Monica Bellucci In Vivienne Westwood Couture – Cannes Film Festival Opening Gala Dinner

Black hasn’t always been my preferred choice when it comes to red carpet dressing.

Often because the details can get lost, along with my perception of the colour being boring; but Monica Bellucci is making me question everything as her Vivienne Westwood Couture gown was the third all-black look that has left me in awe within the space of 24 hours.

Fast becoming my queen of Cannes, so far, the Italian beauty stunned in this velvet sequin gown with black onyx Swarowski crystals.

It’s the effortless of it all that sweeps me off my feet time and time again.

J’Adore.

And may I also note what an amazing run Vivienne Westwood is having at present with fashion homeruns also coming courtesy of Elle Fanning and Thandie Newton this week.

Monica Bellucci In Christian Dior Couture – 2017 Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Serving as Mistress of Ceremonies for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, Monica Bellucci stole the show at the opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts (Les Fantomes d’Ismael)’ on Wednesday (May 17).

Staying true to form, she donned her third black look in Cannes with this captivating Christian Dior Couture creation that proved to be one of the best highlights of the night.

While the look had all the darkly elegant drama that we’d expect from her, the sheer components of the wispy folds of chiffon provided a light, airy allure that added a sophisticated fancifulness to the look.

The other real fantasy was tied up in that intricately bold necklace that could be seen from far and wide; it signaled the thrill of Cannes and all its magnificent charms.

Monica Bellucci In Stella McCartney – Mistress Of Ceremonies Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Monica Bellucci was officially unveiled as the Mistress of Ceremonies for the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival on Monday (May 17).

Opting for her second black Stella McCartney jumpsuit in a row, my immediate reaction was to screengrab the image and @VictoriaBeckham so she could see what beautiful long trousers look like when tailored properly.

Every finer detail has been considered with this piece from the languid silhouette to the volume up top with batwing sleeves.

I simply adore the brooch which adds a touch of glamour.
