‘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.

Fan Bingbing In Ali Karoui Couture -‘Everybody Knows’ Cannes Film Festival Screening

As Fan Bingbing is no longer a L’Oreal girl or a Chopard brand ambassador, I did worry if we would see the Chinese actress at Cannes Film Festival this year.

So I was breathing a sigh of relief when she glided onto the red carpet for the ‘Everybody Knows (Todos Lo Saben)’ screening and opening ceremony this evening (May 8) in France.

Naturally she gave us one of her very finest princess moments wearing a bejewelled and tulled tiered gown created by Tunisian designer Ali Karoui.

With an embellished bodice, the De Beers necklace might be overkill for some – but this is Cannes, so we allow that.

What I didn’t love is the black strap timepiece and the LV bag which felt very Claire’s Accessories alongside this regal gown. It wasn’t the right choice at all for me.
