Juliette Binoche In Balmain – 1st Hainan International Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon features Juliette Binoche In Balmain - 1st Hainan International Film Festival Closing Ceremony

I remember when Juliette Binoche first wore Balmain during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

On that occasion the look wasn’t Balmain as we know it, but the custom gown the French actress wore to the closing ceremony of 1st Hainan International Film Festival on Sunday (December 16) in Sanya, Hainan Province of China, very much was.

Juliette has gone on to wear Balmain to the 2018 Met Gala, but this sparkling embellished and geometric panelled look bares all the hallmarks of Balmain’s Resort 2019 collection, with the house’s signature extremes.

Had many of us seen this design, we would’ve earmarked it for Beyonce or Rihanna, yet it looks breath-taking on Juliette.

It would be hard not to get lost in this intricate design, but she carries it off with great aplomb.

Emerald drop earrings completed the look.

    She looks like a warrior. Balmain designs are a lot, so they are best worn simply which Juliette did. Nice and statuesque

    Wow, I’m floored, even feel like adding it to my BDOTY list.

    Who da thunk Juliette Binoche and Balmain would be a match made in fashion heaven. And yet — they are! The 2017 red is still my fave but she looks great here.

      It’s crazy but it works.. has done so from the jump

    She looks quite nice overall, I like her figure in it but the typical Balmain sleeves and shoulder print design with the rest of this dress annoys me here.

    She’s looking absolutely stunning in this! Balmain has been working well for her.

      Agreed, this could have been extremely tacky but she looks unbelievably fierce and she knows it.

    She looks amazing in this I Can’t Believe It’s Balmain dress.

    This is the first thing I saw on my laptop today. If this is the start, it seems like it will be an exciting week. This is a gorgeous picture. I don’t love the dress on Juliette because it is not especially flattering from the waistband up but I can’t deny that she looks graceful and regal in it.

    This dress deserved a simple but more polite hairstyle.
