Rihanna In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Okja’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Following Chopard party last night, Rihanna stepped out for the ‘Okja’ Cannes Film Festival premiere this evening (May 19).

Unfortunately I didn’t like this Dior Couture look.

Firstly it reminded me of her first vintage Dior Couture look back in December 2015.

Secondly, the pulls on the bust lacked finesse and lastly the Andy Wolf Eyewear custom white angular ‘Ojala’ sunglasses were too comical for me.

I’m sure many will love this look as Rihanna’s Cannes style has been unpredictable so far, but I can’t get on board.

Bella Hadid In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Okja’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Bella Hadid had her second red carpet moment during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 19) for the ‘Okja’ premiere.

The model wore a quilted Christian Dior Spring 2017 Couture ravishing red dress which some might liken to a bedspread, while other will be thankful this dress won’t provide her with any “oops, sorry, I not sorry” flashing moments.

Personally, I love the look.

Mostly because she’s working so hard to sell it, it’s a break from the expected, and the styling is fierce – I hate that word, but it perfectly sum things up on this occasion.

‘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.

‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

More stars took to the red carpet for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts (Les Fantomes d’Ismael)’ on Wednesday (May 17).

Lily-Rose Depp: Her creamy-white Chanel dress had something of a Grecian goddess vibe. She embraced the embellishment by styling the look with gold Chanel Fine Jewelry and Gianvito Rossi ‘Portofino’ sandals

Charlotte Gainsbourg: Like Robin Wright, Charlotte dared to go short in a Saint Laurent silver-studded mini. Was it a chic, fun look? Sure. Was it right for opening night? I’m not convinced.

Eva Herzigova: More metallic came out to play in Eva’s Roberto Cavalli Couture gold-flecked gown that was a stunning way to see the designer represented at Cannes. A Roberto Cavalli Spring 2017 antique gold leather clutch, Roberto Cavalli Resort 2018 platinum sandals and Chopard jewels completed the dazzling look.

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.
