Blackkklansman’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of high octane fashion at the premiere of ‘Blackkklansman’ at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival on Monday evening (May 14). Celebrities joined Damaris LewisLaura Harrier and Naomi Campbell.

Natasha Poly: The pastel purple hue brought an ethereal quality to the unabashed sexiness of her Atelier Versace Spring 2018 dress. It had every sensual element and came to life when in motion. I’m of two minds about removing the front skirt panel as it often seems like it’s in the way.

Winnie Harlow: The vivid green hue of her Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Haute Couture outfit has such a bewitching quality and looks wonderful with her complexion. Alas, the material is not holding up very well for a couture look. It’s rather wilted.

Chopard Trophée Red Carpet Roundup

Cate Blanchett and Elizabeth Debicki stepped out at the Cannes Film Festival Chopard Trophée event on Monday evening (May 14), alongside Araya A. Hargate and Diane Kruger.

Cate Blanchett: This Armani Prive gown exudes the regal, ethereal finish that demonstrates why the actress and designer are such a wonderful pairing. The dress might lack bold orientation but the exquisite tailoring is apparent with it seamlessly combining structure and fluidity. The multicoloured necklace brought the megawatt sparkle.

Elizabeth Debicki: Also in soft tones, the actress wore a Miu Miu gown that was trimmed in rhinestones for a captivating finish. The embellishment enhances the lines of the dress as well as her figure while creating interesting movement.

Damaris Lewis In Off-White – ‘Blackkklansman’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Damaris Lewis cut a fashion-forward figure at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Blackkklansman’ on Monday evening (May 14), joining Charlotte Le Bon, Ava DuVernay and Kristen Stewart.

While her co-star Laura Harrier went for refined simplicity, she opted for on-trend separates with an Off-White Spring 2018 ensemble finished with Off-White x Jimmy Choo Claire pumps.

Tuxedo dressing features at the festival, but it’s doubtful anyone expected it mashed up with cycling shorts and ruched TPU shoes. It was most definitely a surprise and this was the perfect opportunity to showcase her fashion credentials.

Love it or hate it, I’m sure everyone will be eager to see what she will wear next after this head-turning look.

Charlotte Le Bon In Christian Dior Haute Couture – ‘Blackkklansman’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Charlotte Le Bon was one of the attendees at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Blackkklansman’ tonight (May 14). She joined Sonam Kapoor, Naomi Campbell and Jane Fonda.

I foresee this Christian Dior Fall 2017 Haute Couture dress not going down too well because of the overplayed sheer skirt.

There is an interesting three-dimensional quality with the different tones, but it’s the colours of the diaphanous fabric that I find to be the issue as opposed to the sheer fabrication itself.

They don’t really do anything for her nor do they create a striking finish with the other details. It’s a shame.

Araya A. Hargate In Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture – Chopard Trophée

Araya A. Hargate made a bold statement at the Chopard Trophée event at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 14), joining Diane Kruger.

She had her first memorable moment at the festival in Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture at the ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ premiere, and delivered another show-stopping outfit in a layered look from Spring 2014.

Voluminous looks are de rigueur, but this certainly isn’t your standard gown.

She made the style her own with the tidier collar and statement jewels. The skirt also has a different silhouette, but it’s no less arresting. This is the sort of look that makes one reconsider the possibilities of red carpet ensembles.

Sonam Kapoor In Ralph & Russo Haute Couture – ‘Blackkklansman’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Newlywed Sonam Kapoor made her first appearance at Cannes Film Festival this year for tonight’s (May 14) premiere of ‘Blackkklansman’.

Following Deepika Padukone and Aishwarya Rai, the Indian actress is the first one to go traditional this year, wearing a two piece lehenga created by Ralph & Russo.

As beautiful as this look is, I’m struggling to get excited about it.

Mostly because this colour, with this embellishments has been done to death, so in the second week I’m looking for something that’s gonna capture my imagination – see Ava DuVernay and Cate Blanchett. Not more of the same like Deepika Padukone and Araya A. Hargate.

Diane Kruger In Prada – Chopard Trophée

Loose-fitted silhouettes have been the story of Diane Kruger’s 2018 Cannes Film Festival adventure with her Armani Prive gown and the Viktor & Rolf trapeze style mini, so it was only natural that it carried on tonight (May 14) for the Chopard Trophée event.

The actress was the patroness of the Trophée Chopard 2018, which she presented to the new honorees, having won this prize in 2003.

Diane wore a Prada violet silk chiffon plissé bustier gown with emerald crystal and bead-embellished shoulders.

While I love the violet hue, I feel like the embellishments are too much here.

I wish it had been striped back and perhaps made thinner.
