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.

    This. is. PERFECT!

    Gorgeous dress, but her hair style is ageing and the earrings seem like an afterthought. This could have been a BDOTY contender, but just falls a touch short for me.

      she looks beautiful, my only real quibble is those damn earrings. I want purple jewels dripping from her ears. Those earrings are so basic.

    Holy cow, this might be Emilia Clarke’s best look to date!! All hail the Mother of Dragons, head to toe PERFECTION!! That royal plum color is EVERYTHING, literally offsets her milky skin tone perfectly. Classic beauty at her best, well done Emilia!!

    This is major. She looks stunning.

  5. Alina May 16, 2018 at 6:13 am #

    YEEEESSSS! Absolutely stunning.

  6. Ana May 16, 2018 at 5:29 am #

    Stunning! Gorgeous!

  7. Jas May 16, 2018 at 3:35 am #

    This is perfection: gorgeous dress and fit, amazing colour, perfect styling. Thank goodness it’s not another Dior cookie-cutter dress.

  8. EmmaWoodhouse May 16, 2018 at 3:09 am #

    This is… STUNNING. BDOTY-worthy, which is a HIGH mark for a Dior dress! It’s rich and flawless and I’m in LOVE.

    • dedel May 16, 2018 at 8:17 am #

      IKR ! This is how you do HAUTE COUTURE. I feel like the Valentino one was “casual”

  9. Susie May 16, 2018 at 3:00 am #

    This is my favorite Dior gown at Cannes so far, and this is by far the BEST Emilia has ever looked. Both the color and design are soooo flattering on her.

    *puts into Best Dressed of the Year list*

  11. Pheephee May 16, 2018 at 2:12 am #

    It is so gorgeous! Love the dress, so dreamy and romantic. The color is divine. The styling is lovely. My fave of the day I think.

  12. alvarospain May 16, 2018 at 1:00 am #

    One of her best looks, yes. BDOTY candidate.

  13. Amy May 16, 2018 at 12:23 am #

    Flawless. the end.

    So pretty.

  16. Chris May 15, 2018 at 10:35 pm #

    Freaking gorgeous! So much love!

    • Chris May 15, 2018 at 10:36 pm #

      I loved the LA premiere look, but I agree this one actually beats it!

  17. Fanny May 15, 2018 at 10:35 pm #

    Looove this!

  18. Evita May 15, 2018 at 10:34 pm #

    The only thing missing imo is a stronger makeup look, otherwise this is gorgeous

  19. Santiago May 15, 2018 at 10:17 pm #

    That colour is gorgeous! Don’t mind her hair color, but I do think the neck strap is a little random

  20. AnderBoBo May 15, 2018 at 10:15 pm #

    Definitely her best look ever!

  21. brat May 15, 2018 at 10:00 pm #

    This is gorgeous and one of her best! I, too, have thought how much better her dark hair could have complimented it. If I’m going to nitpick, I’m wondering with all the amazing jewels at this festival, why did she chose those uninspired silver earrings? She needs amethysts dripping from her ears! This is my fav look so far today.

    • Maria F. May 16, 2018 at 9:15 am #

      I totally agree about the jewelry.

  22. Hannah May 15, 2018 at 9:56 pm #

    I am in love! The colour is divine, and I even don’t care about the blond hair (I like her in blond only in GoT).

    • CreoleLady May 15, 2018 at 10:18 pm #


  23. Jeremy May 15, 2018 at 9:50 pm #

    If I could throw a shoe at her, I would. This is how you slay.

    Come throooouuugh Mother of Dragons!

    • Vizual Ninja May 16, 2018 at 3:59 am #

      lol +1 for your hilarious comment, I’m in love with that colour, personal best for her for sure!

    • brat May 16, 2018 at 5:16 am #

      Daenerys Stormborn, the first of her name, rightful Queen of Westeros!!!!

  24. Karen May 15, 2018 at 9:50 pm #

    love it

  25. quimby May 15, 2018 at 9:42 pm #

    I prefer the Valentino, but she looks great and this color is divine.

  26. Real Nat39 May 15, 2018 at 9:39 pm #

    I’m not too excited but this is pretty.

    • Lashae May 16, 2018 at 4:51 am #


    • Leandra May 16, 2018 at 6:49 am #

      only ‘pretty’? Nat, we are growing apart…haha

    • The original AB May 16, 2018 at 9:01 am #


    • fromchi-town May 16, 2018 at 3:34 pm #

      +3. While it’s really pretty and she looks beautiful, it doesn’t really excite me.

  27. Charlotte May 15, 2018 at 9:36 pm #

    She looks gorgeous, the dress is great.
    My only nitpick would be the strap around her neck, it looks a bit cheap and not in tone with the rest of the dress.

  28. DEDEL May 15, 2018 at 9:35 pm #

    I’m obsessed with this ! The valentino looked more “casual” even though that was haute couture. Purple is one of my favorite color and to see those shades of purple I’m beyond happy. Love the sleeves too. It does not look like our typicall tulle dress and I am loving it.

  29. Kimma May 15, 2018 at 9:35 pm #

    THIS is what I’ve been hoping for from Emilia and starting to fear I would never see. She looks divine

    • Kat May 16, 2018 at 5:49 am #

      + 1

  30. Ana May 15, 2018 at 9:33 pm #

    I love the dress, specially the color, but would have prefered it without those “sleeves”. I do agree on her hair, can’t wait til GoT filming is over when she’ll hopefully go back to brunette.

  31. Caroline May 15, 2018 at 9:32 pm #

    I getting so many BDOTY contenders! This is heavenly. Absolutely stunning. No thing I would change.
