Cannes Fashion For Relief

The Fashion for Relief gala and runway show event was held during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (May 21), with attendees turning up the volume on their own fashion statements for the evening.

Naomi Campbell: Before gracing the runway at the event, the supermodel stunned in an Atelier Versace Spring 2017 gown with Santoni sandals and Bulgari jewels. The slithery, slit-to-there was Naomi’s version of a Grecian goddess look; I loved the movement of the diaphanous skirt and the shimmer of the knotted overlay that infused the look with an intriguing edge.

Uma Thurman: After her questionable last look, Uma redeemed herself a bit in this Atelier Versace embellished number styled with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. However, am I alone in thinking the dress felt a bit dated?

Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan
: I have a feeling that this Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci dress was far more beautifully perceived in person with its tonal embroidery and lace underskirt. Its pristine-white polish is what kept me most interested.

Lewis Hamilton
: The British race car driver didn’t leave his sporty edge at home, bringing it to Cannes with this Gucci ‘Bee’ bomber jacket.

‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

The ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ premiere at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 18) included a number of other bold names on the red carpet, although I fear that none of them will have upped the Cannes style ante this year.

Susan Sarandon: I was underwhelmed by Susan’s look at opening night and this Chanel Resort 2017 ensemble didn’t really change that sentiment. with Stella Luna ‘Le Smoking’ slingbacks, Chanel Fine Jewelry and Chanel shades

Robin Wright: Robin opted for a long gown this time out, but while the colour was magnificent, the satiny slip dress fell rather flat. A blue velvet Hayward clutch completed the look.

Uma Thurman: Uma impressed me yesterday, but I was left supremely puzzled by this Giuseppe Zanotti Fall 2017 ensemble consisting of a ‘Connie’ black croc-stamped biker jacket—why in the Cannes summer?—paired with an ill-fitting, creased satin skirt and a Tod’s clutch. It was a bit of a mess.

Uma Thurman In Atelier Versace – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

As jury president for Un Certain Regard, Uma Thurman was also at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts (Les Fantomes d’Ismael)’ on Wednesday (May 17).

With a flourish of subtle yet impactful sophistication, she wore an Atelier Versace Fall 2016 gown styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Blakissima’ sandals.

The removal of the original set of ruffles down the front provided a sleeker, streamlined approach that suited Uma’s style and the occasion.

What remained of the beautifully sculpted folds and layers is what make this soft-pink design so enthralling, with diamonds playing the role of this elegant gown’s best friend.

Christian Dior Fall 2017 Front Row

Paris Fashion Week is in full tilt, with the Christian Dior Fall 2017 presentation on Friday (March 3) one of the highly anticipated shows on the calendar. A flurry of Dior-dressed beauties were seated front and centre for the runway action.

Rihanna: Parisian chic with plenty of edge, Rihanna wore a Christian Dior Spring 2017 ensemble. The gracefully tailored coat-dress simply served as the canvas for the drama of her statement accessories that put the power into this look, beginning with the leather beret and J’ADIOR shades and ending with the patent cross-body bag and embellished suede boots.

Uma Thurman: Tailored sophistication was presented in this Dior Pre-Fall 2017 ensemble with the brush of the floral tulle skirt adding a softer femininity to the look.

Sienna Miller
: Also donning a Pre-Fall 2017 look, the actress managed the oversized layers and heady mix of floral motifs quite beautifully while maintaining her typically bohemian sensibility.

Uma Thurman In Brandon Maxwell – ‘Burnt’ New York Premiere

Uma Thurman In Brandon Maxwell - 'Burnt' New York Premiere

Uma Thurman attended the ‘Burnt’ New York premiere at the Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday (October 20) in New York City.

The actress wore a custom Brandon Maxwell fitted dress which worked to highlighting the very best of the female form.

The fit -as you would expect from a custom piece- is flawless, her body is incredible, the colour is hypnotic….what’s not to love?

The look was styled with Chopard jewels and Alexandre Birman sandals which should’ve been tied properly.

Uma Thurman In Prada – Chopard Party

Uma Thurman In Prada - Chopard Party

Uma Thurman attended the Chopard party during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Monday (May 18) in Cannes, France.

The actress wore an icy fit-and-flare Prada dress, pleated to create a voluminous silhouette.

While this look serves ups something of a romantic flair, I can’t help but nitpick by saying that the dress appears to be a tad snug around the waist.

Do you agree?

The look was styled with Jimmy Choo shoes and Chopard provided the bling.
