Araya A. Hargate In Alexis Mabille Couture – ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Posted by Rachel Watkins

Araya A. Hargate has continued to be a formidable fashion force at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, with her maternity style not holding her back one bit.

For the screening of ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ on Sunday (May 21), she showed off her burgeoning bump in the most figure-skimming look we’ve seen thus far from her.

Yet, the form-hugging silhouette of this Alexis Mabille Fall 2014 Couture gown was dramatically put in beautiful balance by the sculpted bodice and extravagant, quilted cape train that trailed behind her.

Diamond and emerald Chopard jewels brought the thrill of Cannes-worthy shine to the look.

Regal—nearly theatrical—elegance at its finest.

    I think she has looked fantastic even if this is somewhat different wuth the way the cape is done. It take risks to deliver and she has taken them.

    This would be perfect for a cannes screening of Gone with the wind – a sort of homage to Scarlett and the drapes moment. the quilting is too pronounced and takes it to a costume territory rather than being fashion. pull the bed covers off and she looks stunning! this is maternity fashion done right

    Give this girl an Award please!
    Araya should be applauded for her consistency to look flawless every time.
    Her red carpet game is strong.

      She owns it on the red carpet, every time!!

    Reminds me of the Christian Dior Bella Hadid bedspread look.

    Not sure about this. I wanted to love this unpredictable look but the IMHO this is a little bit costumey. More suitable for this year’s Met Gala as the red hue of the cape suits the theme really well. But I want to appreciate her effort on this one, and kudos to Araya for bringing something unique and not sticking to the boring puffy big ball gowns.

    A for effort.
    As much as I love Araya, those quilted trains are such a turn-off.
    This type of fabric should never be made into clothing.
    I’ve said this once and I will say it again,her commitment to couture and consistant glamour really moved me that I shall name her my queen of Cannes this year.

    I love her willingness to try different things. She looks fabulous!
    I like the unique fabric, I think its working at giving the dress a fresh new look.
    She does so so well at Cannes I might just give her the Queen of Cannes title!

    Wow, I thought she was done yesterday. But here she is delivering Cannes-worthy drama yet again! I like how unusual design is and the emerald jewels are a delight. She owns it!

    Her boobs are so squashed in this frock and I’m not a fan of the Red fabric. Still, she gets a pass because she’s trying unlike most attendees. Pregnancy ain’t stopping her.

    I usually hate quilted but she’s selling the look to me.

  11. meme May 21, 2017 at 8:28 pm #

    she looks like she’s walking around wrapped in a bedspread.

  12. ChristinA May 21, 2017 at 8:06 pm #

    Strangely enough, I don’t mind the quilted fabric; I thought it looked quite nice on Bella Hadid earlier on in the festival and it is ok on Araya. I am not a fan of the tight nude skirt: it makes me think of a spanx dress. I would have liked this dress more if it were all in the same colour, even if that means compromising (or taking away entirely) the contrast element.

    This was very much needed drama. I love it. I applaud her. She’s been serving.

    Her makeup and hair are flawless. The dress could be stunning, but like everyone else said, the red blanket like fabric is a huge let down.

  15. Marie May 21, 2017 at 7:56 pm #

    I’m amazed by the variety she’s bringing to the rc, she tries something new every time and it’s always working for her.
    Can’t say this is her best (that’s definitely the Zuhair Murad from yesterday) but she’s still working it. Yes, the train could be a better fabric, yes, the jewellery could fit better colour-wise, but she still looks great, there’s no denying it.
    And this constant change, not playing it safe but serving up new, fresh choices on every event and owning the hell out of them every single time is what makes her my Queen of Cannes.

    • Schoolbea May 21, 2017 at 11:40 pm #

      That constant change and consistency of flawless presentation are to be applauded, indeed. She is my Queen of Cannes so far, too.

      Even if I don’t like this particular dress. But she could sell anything to me at this point.

  16. Leandra May 21, 2017 at 7:54 pm #

    The train really looks like a bed spread, albeit a very expensive one but in Couture we can accept this kind of kooky things. Her boobs look as if they were smashed and deflated.
    The idea is really good, it looks divine on the model , kind of Empress Josefine’s attire but the execution for Araya was somehow flawed.

  17. Nadia99 May 21, 2017 at 7:30 pm #

    I see whe are continuing the trend of wearing quilts as dresses.
    For some reason I really don’t mind it when I see Araya.

  18. Martina May 21, 2017 at 7:15 pm #

    I love this, she is really giving Blake a run for her money with her maternity style :))))

  19. Ale May 21, 2017 at 7:07 pm #

    She is always trying different things, and I admire her for that.
    I can’t say I love this as much as I did her latest look, but she has an impecable maternity style. Bravo!

  20. Alina May 21, 2017 at 7:06 pm #

    I don’t think this dress is the best she has done thus far, but bless her for being the hardest working woman at Cannes this year. The effort she and her team put in her red carpet appearances needs to be appreciated and emulated.

  21. Chris May 21, 2017 at 6:54 pm #

    I hate that quilted fabric. Not a good fabric for a train like that at all. If the train was in a more flowy fabric, this could have been absolutely amazing. I still overall like it and her beauty look is gorgeous as always, but most of the time, my eyes always go back to that messy train.

  22. Laetitia May 21, 2017 at 6:52 pm #

    Whats that? Blanket?

  23. Ramsay May 21, 2017 at 6:49 pm #

    The red fabric is like a bed cover
