‘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.

Araya A. Hargate In Olivier Theyskens – ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Araya A. Hargate had a second chance to showcase her maternity style on the red carpet for the ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ Cannes Film Festival premiere this evening (May 18).

The interesting thing about this Olivier Theyskens Spring 2017 gown is that it cleverly conceals, rather than reveals her burgeoning baby bump.

Araya’s look was all about bringing drama to the carpet, from the oversized peplum, to the sultry sheer skirt, the opera gloves and Chopard High Jewellery Collection pieces.

THIS is a Cannes worthy look.

Jeanne Balibar In Jacquemus – ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jeanne Balibar wore her second Jacquemus look for the ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ Cannes Film Festival premiere this evening (May 18), following the photocall earlier in the day.

The idea was a good one, but the execution doesn’t work for me.

Yes, the look is supposed to be outsized, but the fact that she had to sling the jacket over her shoulder to temper the look, proves that in this case a size down would’ve served her better.

Emily Ratajkowski In Peter Dundas – ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Following Peter Dundas red carpet debut via Beyonce Knowles at the 2017 Grammys, I had high hopes for the designers first collection, until I saw Emily Ratajkowski’s lace jumpsuit at the ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ premiere this evening (May 18) during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

If a model like Emily can’t make your design look appealing, there’s something wrong.

Yes, this is Cannes where the play is to stand out and be noticed, but the word ‘overworked’ springs to mind with the cut-out, the illusion neckline, the cummerbund, and the tiered train, oh my.

If this was a movie it would go straight to DVD, just as this is going straight to my WDOTY list.

Winnie Harlow In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Winnie Harlow glided down the red carpet for the ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ screening during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 18).

I have to say I was a little disappointed by this Zuhair Murad Spring 2017 Couture offering from Winnie.

Someone with her fashion-forward prowess should’ve gone for something more daring. And by daring I don’t mean an Alexandre Vauthier Couture dress slashed to the hip bone, more like an avant-garde Jean Paul Gaultier design.

The electric blue silk of this Couture gown didn’t travel well according to the creases, so hopefully she will have the opportunity to dazzle us again before this festival concludes.

Chopard jewels and René Caovilla sandals completed the look.

Adriana Lima In Naeem Khan – ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Adriana Lima brought some model magic to the ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ premiere during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 18).

From that smoldering gaze to the red pout; all notions of this Naeem Khan Spring 2018 gown being a bridal gown were thrown out the window once Adriana hit the red carpet.

The body-conscious silhouette and feminine cut sculpted to create a slender profile, making this an unforgettable entrance for the supermodel.

Stuart Weitzman heels and a Chopard necklace from the High Jewellery Collection completed this stunning look.
