Monica Bellucci In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 23rd Lumieres Awards Ceremony

Monica Bellucci joined Juliette Binoche for the 23th Lumieres Awards Ceremony on Monday (February 5) in Paris, France.

Considering ya’ll had a strong case of déjà vu when it came to her last red carpet appearance, many will see this Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2018 Couture red crystalized dress as a complete 180.

Not because of the colour, as Monica has often worn red, alongside her favoured black, navy and green; but the surprise comes from the Italian actress stepping outside her Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino comfort-zone, for something so unpredictable, different, new and modern.

Even her hairstyle had changed, with a lighter hue and shorter, sleek cut.

Was this a step in the right direction for Monica?

Personally, I’m loving Monica 2.0 (sans the shoes). That ruched detailing is doing wonders for her gorgeous figure.

    I just don’t care for how she dresses herself.

    This looks a lot like what Thandie Newton wore to the Met last year (?). It’s a fine dress that needed an updo, no tights, and better shoes.

    Why the stockings? The platforms? Why? I want someone to explain…I love the dress on her and the hair.

    Love the dress, she finally doesn’t look so drab! She can definitely pull of red and color.

    I immediately thought “wow” until I scrolled down and saw the shoes.
    It could have been perfect, but it’s quite disappointing. The dress deserves a better styling.

    Gorgeous dress, awful styling.

    This had been on the wish list for Charlize, but it’s also a great fit here, in a different way

    OMG but who allowed her to put those shoes on with that dress. She was sabotaged! This look is so fierce.

    Love the hair and the red.

    This woman is a goddess but those shoes are ruinous.

    LOVE the dress. Those shoes on Monica are hideous.

    • Lolly. February 12, 2018 at 2:52 pm #

      Yeah. At first I was “Lovely” but those shoes… Oh my.

  12. Charlotte February 6, 2018 at 8:45 pm #

    The dress has a 80’s vibe but still she looks gorgeous in it!
    The shoes are not good though.
    It’s a nice change but still not perfect.

    Those platforms aren’t best but the rest I’m living for; she looks smoking but more modern.

  14. Evita February 6, 2018 at 8:45 pm #

    Loved this until I got to the tights and the shoes. Her hair looks particularly good here, somehow all the hair with the high neckline doesn’t look stuffy to me. This dress with a train would have been so good on her

    Looks great in red and the dress fits wonderfully for her body. Im not a fan of hose or her shoes. But overall this is refreshing.

    Wow, this is FIERCE! She looks so modern, love everything!

  17. Caroline February 6, 2018 at 7:57 pm #

    Wow, stunning. Definitely BDOTW contender for me.

  18. JHH February 6, 2018 at 7:47 pm #

    This feels a touch dated to me (ruching does that for me) but she looks great in red and in this modern silhouette. Ankles up, this is a good look for her.
