The models were out in force for the ‘Rocketman’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Thursday (May 16) in France.
Bella Hadid: We all know that Bella loves a nearly naked moment, so I loved seeing the softer side of Bella in this delicate tulle Christian Dior Spring 2018 Haute Couture gown styled with Christian Louboutin ‘Degrastrass’ pumps. Sheer though it were, the dress still had a blushing innocence to it.
Isabeli Fontana: Etro isn’t always a name we’d expect to see on the Cannes red carpet, but they have dominated it this year. And this look certainly made a name for itself, beginning and ending with the striking floral ball skirt. While it looks like she tied a whole bolt of fabric onto the pocketed, matching mini shorts underneath, I still loved the bigness and boldness of the voluminous train trailing behind her.
Praya Lundberg: Oozing with va-va-voom flair, Priya was certainly channeling Elizabeth Hurley in this red variation on the iconic Versace safety pin dress. I was all for Avakian’s new Tosca Collection diamond earrings and matching ring. But, she lost me a bit at the platform sandals.
Rita Sririta Jensen: Go big or go home is what I say about Cannes, and this Michael Cinco Couture jaw-dropper was a thrilling addition to the red-carpet lineup. I was captivated by the artistry of it all — it was sculpture, to say the least — with its undulating waves of lavender.
Maria Borges: The naked-dress trend had another moment at Cannes with this nude Roberto Cavalli embellished, feather-accented design paired with René Caovilla Ellabrita sandals.
Jessica Kahawaty: The Lebanese model donned a Giambattista Valli Spring 2019 Haute Couture high-low, pouf-sleeve gown. I guess you could say it was cute, but it also translated as a bit twee and seemingly ill-fitted through the bodice.
Izabel Goulart: Sure, this Zuhair Murad Spring 2019 Couture jumpsuit design didn’t have the same magnificent proportions as some of the Cannes gowns. But, I couldn’t help but be drawn to its dazzling gleam and the glamorous, streamlined effect with the slit variation on the pant leg. Chopard jewels and bombshell waves completed the stunning effect.
Eva Herzigova: The ‘Rocketman’ movie is about Sir Elton John. So, maybe this Christian Dior Haute Couture embellished romper and sparkling tights, styled with Chopard jewels, were meant to reflect his glittery, OTT style?
Sara Sampaio: Sara masqueraded as a disco ball to the red carpet in this reflective Rami Kadi design with Casadei pumps.
Gelila Bekele: It was clear that Gelila was having fun wearing this Armani Prive Spring 2019 bubblegum-pink gown with its layered twirl skirt and somewhat obnoxiously large corsage piece at the shoulder. But, it was translated as a bit dated and overly sweet for my liking.
Eva Longoria: Following her chic daytime look, the actress stepped on the red carpet again, this time wearing Cristina Ottaviano. The dress may hail from the Fall 2019 collection, yet I’m sure many will say that this feels kinda dated. Anything flattering, is a win for me.
Dita von Teese: I know many of you have grown tired of Dita’s style, which is why I don’t feature her as much, but there is no denying how beautiful she looks in this wispy Alexis Mabille Spring 2019 Haute Couture gown. It’s classic DVT, right down the red lips and manicure. I’m unsure how I feel about that her Chopard diamond necklace with heart-shaped vivid blue sapphires, but we all know Cannes requires larger than life jewels to match the gowns.
