‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

The fashion was strong at the ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Tuesday evening (May 15). Attendees joined Emilia Clarke, Phoebe Waller-BridgeThandie Newton and Elizabeth Debicki.

Liu Wen: Never one to go down the sheer, bedazzled route, she shone in Bottega Veneta Fall 2018. She borrowed styling ideas from the runway, but added a Bottega Veneta clutch. The rich marigold colour had such a sumptuous air. I’m curious to see how the ankle boots will go down.

Toni Garrn: The German model showed some leg in Roberto Cavalli Couture. It certainly embodied the designer’s sensual aesthetic. It also showed a level of craftsmanship for the way the lining perfectly matched her skin tone with no distracting bra cups or panty lines.

Doutzen Kroes: The Dutch beauty traded in the gown for strong-shouldered Tom Ford separates paired with pink Tom Ford pumps. Some ensembles with exaggerated shoulders haven’t gone down well, but the proportions of this look shouldn’t offend.

Sara Sampaio: Texture was the focal point of her custom Ralph & Russo couture gown. The feathered trim was a change of pace. René Caovilla sandals and Chopard jewels provided some shine. Do you prefer the runway version or Sara’s custom look?

Alessandra Ambrosio: Not bothered about showing legs and cleavage, the supermodel was clad in Roberto Cavalli Couture with Boucheron jewels and Jimmy Choo ‘Kaylee’ sandals. She could carry off almost any gown, but I’m craving something more unexpected.

Laís Ribeiro: At first glance, it seems like a simple style but it’s not. The Victoria’s Secret Angel’s Ali Karoui dress had a clever use of embellishment with the lines showcasing her figure. Avakian jewels increased the shimmer.

Winnie Harlow: The Canadian model’s Jean Louis Sabaji gown looked like liquid silver, but the finish isn’t as refined as it could be. The up-to-there front slit and twisted detailing don’t help matters.

Shanina Shaik: The newlywed brought some bohemian allure in Alberta Ferretti and Avakian jewels. There was a refreshing air to the piece as it wasn’t over-styled or overly embellished. It’s carefree and effortless.

Maria Borges: The Angolan model made a sweet statement in a tiered ballet pink confection. Glamour and sensuality are normal themes so this was a nice change. René Caovilla sandals and her curly hair finished the pretty style.

Izabel Goulart: The bondage inspiration wasn’t lost on this Julien Macdonald Fall 2017 ensemble. It was all about sleek seduction. The reverse had just as many details as the front.

Astrid Berges-Frisbey: Another beauty in black, the French-Spanish actress wore a Chanel style which made clever use of banding to bring subtle texture and movement to the dress. Would you have liked to see this look on Kristen Stewart?

    yes, we are all sexual beings, but I am tired of looking at panties under sheer “dresses”.

    Also, if a shoulder-pad TF look isn’t working on Doutzen, it ain’t working on anyone.

    Liu Wen, come on really ??? BOOTS ??! That dress could have been HEAVEN, but it was ruined by the ug bra and the camel bloody boots and the weird belt. My heart is breaking, I would have died for a sleek marigold velvet look

    Models in Robert Cavalli = YAWN

    Ever since Angelina Jolie gave us “the pose with the leg” at the 2012 Oscars, there’s been a sea of stylists & celebrities that seem to think that the only good look will have a hip-high split. Maybe we can move on from it now….
    Sara Sampaio in custom Ralph & Russo vs runway version?
    Runway version is better.
    Her custom look is just trying too hard. Too low cut, too much leg.
    She should have picked one focal point and stuck too it. Like the original

    Horrible

  7. Chris May 16, 2018 at 10:43 am #

    Meh. Not really liking any of these.

    Lais looks stunning, a great combination of colour and sparkle.

    I also like Shanina’s yellow dress.

    Toni Garn looks polished.

    Liu’s looks a bit like a bathrobe. I am not sure it was the best choice for a red carpet in May in the South of France.

    Nothing special here.
    Toni, Lais and Shanina for me.

  10. Leandra May 16, 2018 at 7:09 am #

    Toni looks terrific.
    Astrid Berges needs a bit of training for the posing. That chin sooooo “up” gives the impression of arrogance, thing that I said just another day about Lupita. It’s a very subtle thing that all great actors command with easy.

    Toni from the bunch.

  12. Vizual Ninja May 16, 2018 at 3:55 am #

    Toni is good but I’m all sparkled out, Lais is my favourite. That colour is lovely on Shanina but the dress is dated.

  13. Caroline May 16, 2018 at 3:00 am #

    Toni and Sara look amazing.

  14. Pheephee May 16, 2018 at 2:29 am #

    Lais looks gorgeous. Sleek perfect fit. Flawless look.

    Lais is my favorite here, gorgeous color!

    I love a beautiful tuxedo on a woman but those linebacker shoulders kill the look for me on Doutzen. The gorgeous marigold colour on Liu is stunning but the ankle boots are not my favourite by any stretch. Allesandra is of course stunning but the sheer trend and non-stop granny panty parade is making my brain hurt. The rest are just meh.

    Tonni Garrn is the best here for me. I love the hair, makeup and earrings.
