Sonam Kapoor In Elie Saab Couture – ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Sonam Kapoor took pretty in pink to an all-new level while at the screening of ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 21).

Elie Saab continues to be the reigning king of red-carpet embellishment, and the designer’s handiwork was no better witnessed than in this custom Couture creation that embraced a sense of Bollywood glamour at its finest.

Elaborately ornate Kalyan jewels in a similar pink palette added to the extravagant mood of grandeur.

Chopard Space Party

Galactic with a touch of diamonds was said to be the dress code of the Chopard SPACE Party, co-hosted by Rihanna, during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 19), and the stars in attendance indeed delivered a constellation of looks appropriately dusted with Chopard jewels.

Bella Hadid: Lest you think Bella had turned a corner with a newly modest style after the ‘Okja’ premiere, her Roberto Cavalli Couture slit-to-thigh gown promptly signaled her return to the leg jut. But, it was necessary to show off her custom-made Rene Caovilla gladiator sandals. I always find satin a challenging fabric, and that was evidenced here. Futuristically winged eyeliner finished the look.

Adriana Lima: Looking impossibly regal, Adriana struck a divine note in this Reem Acra Spring 2018 Bridal gown that would never be confused for a wedding dress. I was in awe of the glamour that exuded form the embellished top and dramatic, caped split sleeve.

Kendall Jenner: I love the sculptural mood of this shimmering Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture design that could certainly pass for space-age sophistication.

Fan Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Fan Bingbing took an elegant turn at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts on Wednesday (May 17).

By wearing a gown from the Elie Saab Couture Spring 2017 Couture Collection, the star ensured she would make a elegant and feminine turn on the red carpet.

While this ice blue color regularly reads as cheap in different fabrics and on different people, Fan avoids both, and simply looks fresh and seasonally-appropriate.

The built-in capelet is a modern and fierce addition to a classically ethereal look, but I do miss the jewels featured on the runway. Fan’s more delicate diamond pieces get lost on the dress, versus popping like the chunky gold items seen on the runway.

Otherwise, I love this look. Do you agree?

Clotilde Courau In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Clotilde Courau was one of the first to hit the red carpet for the ‘Ismael’s Ghosts (Les Fantomes d’Ismael)’ premiere and opening ceremony for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday (May 17) wearing Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture with Chopard High Jewellery Collection pieces.

Honestly, at this point I’m feeling kinda numb to this look.

Yes, it’s pretty but the words “deja vu” and “it’s been done” immediately sprang to mind.

I’m hoping for something a bit more from Cannes this year.

Kaya Scodelario In Elie Saab – ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Paris Premiere

Kaya Scodelario celebrated the release of Disney’s ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ at Disneyland Paris on Sunday (May 14) France.

The British actress wore a Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2017 dress which may at first glance seem too heavy for the current season, however, I feel the tulle fabrication gives the look a lightness tempering the embellishments and velvet accents.

For a Disney premiere there has to be a touch mystic, which this look possesses in abundance.
