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.
