Nieves Alvarez In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Nieves Alvarez In Elie Saab Couture - ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Nieves Alvarez made her first appearance at Cannes Film Festival this evening for the ‘Sicario’ Premiere on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

Nipplegate aside, the Spanish beauty looked fabulous wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture ombre gown that screamed glamour. This is why her presence is always welcome at this festival.

Like Petra, Nievez is one of the few wearing a summery gown at this event; I hope more stars embrace the current season moving forward.

I love the addition of the nude Christian Louboutin studded clutch. The only thing I would change is the red nails for nude.

I’ve waited a long time to see this gown, so you’ll get no complaints from me tonight.

Models @ The Chopard Party

Models @ The Chopard Party

Models were out in force for the Chopard party during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France on Monday (May 18).

As always, there was a lot of bling courtesy of the host Chopard, plenty of thigh-revealing frocks and of course, a high percentage of Elie Saab Couture gowns.

Lindsay Ellingson: The model wore a Sophie Theallet striped gown with thigh-high slit. I love the added flavour via her colourful leather belt and shoes from Sophie Theallet’s ‘Jamaican Dancehall’ collection which I must own.

Thairine Garcia: My jaw-dropped upon seeing the red haired model wearing this gorgeous green Elie Saab gown. Red + green = red carpet perfection.

Daniela Braga: The Brazilian model sparkled in a blue Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture gown which was similar in style to Ana Beatriz Barros’ red gown (from the same collection) who was standing right beside her.

Toni Garrn: Shunning the bling trend, the model kept things simple in a blush silk Blumarine gown.

Petra Nemcova: I expected some bling from Petra, but on this occasion that only came courtesy of her Chopard jewels.

Irina Shayk: Showing an incredible amount of restraint, the model, who’s known to wear many embellished gowns slit to the thigh, opted for a simple yet chic Misha Nonoo jumpsuit on this occasion.

Adriana Lima: The model also went down a surprisingly muted path vamping up her simple white gown with Giuseppe Zanotti accessories.

Isabeli Fontana: An any other day we would scold the Brazilian beauty for overcooking her embellished Elie Saab Couture gown with that necklace, but this was a Chopard party, excess was expected.

Sonam Kapoor In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Inside Out’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Inside Out" Premiere - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Sonam Kapoor attended the ‘Inside Out’ premiere during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Monday (May 18) in Cannes, France.

When I saw the Indian beauty wearing this lime-green Elie Saab Spring 2015 Couture gown styled with stunning Chopard jewels, I said under my breath, ‘I knew it’.

That is, I knew this gown would be near impossible to pull off on the red carpet.

Sonam is never shy of a challenge, so I commend her for taking the risk, but I’m not ready to commit to loving this look at this time.

I’m leaving the door open in case I change my mind and see a better picture later in the evening, but at this point I will just give her an A for effort.

You may remember I had this on my wish list for Fan Bingbing.

Andie MacDowell In Elie Saab – ‘Inside Out’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Andie MacDowell In Elie Saab - 'Inside Out' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Andie MacDowell attended the ‘Inside Out’ premiere during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Monday (May 18) in Cannes, France.

Having worn a Ralph & Russo beaded Couture gown for her first night on the red carpet, she opted for an Elie Saab beaded Couture gown on her second.

The gown, which hails from the Spring 2015 collection, has the same swirly design we saw on Aishwarya Rai’s gown last night, further proving my point that these style of gowns are slowly merging into one.

I guess when you see them months apart there is a general feeling of excitement. Seeing them night after night on the Cannes red carpet, the fatigue is starting to really creep in.

Aishwarya Rai In Elie Saab – ‘Carol’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Aishwarya Rai In Elie Saab - 'Carol' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Aishwarya Rai attended the premiere of ‘Carol’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 17) in Cannes, France.

The Indian beauty made her first appearance during the festival wearing Elie Saab, of course.

The green gown with its sheer panels and embellishments is nice enough, but it doesn’t sweep me off my feet nor does it engulf me with goosebumps; which are rare feelings not to have in the presence of Queen Rai.

Perhaps the issue is that I am comparing this look to her previous two seasons where she blew me away, this is more like a light breeze.
