Emilia Clarke In Christian Dior Haute Couture – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Emilia Clarke joined Elizabeth Debicki, Jennifer Connelly, Sonam Kapoor and Thandie Newton for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ this evening (May 15).

I’ve never been anti-Emilia Clarke’s blonde hair, but I know I woud’ve swoon a lot harder had she worn this Dior Haute Couture superimposed black, burgundy and navy blue tulle gown with her brunette locks.

For the LA premiere, many of you had said that was her best look ever, so I’m wondering if this Dior supersedes the Valentino in your eyes.

Maybe because everything feels more glamorous at Cannes, I would say this was my favourite of the two.

I adore the dreamy like quality, which is still thoroughly modern and not too princessy.

Elizabeth Debicki In Valentino Haute Couture – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Elizabeth Debicki joined Sonam Kapoor and Thandie Newton for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ this evening (May 15).

The first thing I noted when I saw Elizabeth in this Valentino Spring 2018 Haute Couture floral gown, was how this is a new silhouette for her.

With her gorgeous statuesque frame, she tends to stick to more slender gowns, much like her Miu Miu look from the last night.

Are you enjoying this rare bohemian romantic moment from Elizabeth as much as I am?

Thandie Newton In Vivienne Westwood Couture for The Green Carpet Challenge – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Following the photocall, I was excited to see what Thandie Newton would be serving up at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ this evening (May 15).

The British actress wore a custom Vivienne Westwood Couture gown, printed with images of Thandie’s personal Star Wars figurine collection.

Each character was photographed by Christian Hogstedt and was layered over the iconic Vivienne Westwood ‘Absence of Roses’ print.

The print was created especially as an homage to Thandie’s first appearance in the motion-picture franchise.

If you were thinking, “this is just another standard Westwood dress,” hopefully the back story with encourage you to look again at this gown with fresh eyes.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

If you thought Jennifer Connelly would break her stride and do something different, like a tulle ball gown, for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ this evening (May 15), you were in dreamland.

The actress was of course in Louis Vuitton, wearing a modified look from the Fall 2018 collection.

Some might regards this as ‘not-Cannes-worthy,’ but I love how it felt so right for the Star Wars premiere.

It has a futuristic vibe, and I have a sneaky feeling it was deliberately selected as it mildly resembles the iconic Stormtrooper.

So for that, I think it was a smart move. As a gown this wouldn’t have worked.

Sonam Kapoor In Vera Wang Bridal – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Sonam Kapoor was back on the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ this evening (May 15).

If you are expecting me to swoon over this Vera Wang Bridal 2019 gown, I feel like I already did…three days ago…when Sofia Boutella wore a similar dual-colour look from the same collection.

They are by no means the same dress, but the sentiment is the same.

But familiarity isn’t the biggest problem here, it’s the colour.

The nude hue is pretty yet feels so bland at the same time. Had the yellow been the more prominent colour of this story, I would be left breathless.

Hopefully Sonam will return to this and this kinda form for Cannes 2019.

Emilia Clarke In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Emilia Clarke joined Thandie Newton at the ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival photocall on Tuesday (May 15) in France.

Wearing Dolce & Gabbana, the look had a playful feel with the smattering of oversized buttons and short shapes. The mood invigorated the brand’s signature glamour.

Some might wish for longer trousers to elongate the lines of the legs, but I’m not bothered as the cropped length kept things fresh.

Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps add to the fun feeling.
