Who Was Your Best Dressed At The amfAR Cannes Gala?


Models @ amfAR Gala Cannes 2018

With the limited showing of actresses – Kristen Stewart, Laura Harrier and Coco Konig – at the amfAR Cannes Gala this year, it was left to the models to provide the glamour.

Maria Borges: It’s been so great to see Roberto Cavalli back on the red carpet at Cannes. Maria was one of many models to don a look from the Couture collection this year. This platinum piece dripping with citrine micro-crystals and draped fringes was as dazzling as she was radiant.

Karolina Kurkova: Always a cut above, the model looked very elegant and sexy in her Miu Miu column dress which she perfectly accessorized with Miu Miu shoes and drop diamond earrings to complement the Swarovski crystal bow.

Sara Sampaio: Even the models outstretch leg couldn’t upstage the dazzling sheen of her pleated lame Elie Saab Resort 2018 blue gown.

Coco Konig In Jenny Packham – amfAR Gala Cannes 2018

I feel like we haven’t had a true princess moment since Fan Bingbing left Cannes Film Festival, so I was delighted to see Coco Konig take to the red carpet at the amfAR Cannes Gala in France on Thursday (May 17).

And you don’t get more princess-like than this pink frothy tulle Jenny Packham tiered dress in all its bippity boppity boo Cinderella splendour, which hails from the Spring 2018 collection.

Worthy of a fairytale, you’ll either be charmed by this, or find it too saccharine.

I’m firmly placed in the former. J’Adore.

Ava DuVernay In Cushnie et Ochs – amfAR Gala Cannes 2018

Ava DuVernay joined Laura Harrier and Kristen Stewart on the red carpet on Thursday (May 17) for the amfAR Cannes Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France.

I was in a state of awe seeing the director wearing this custom Cushine et Ochs column gown in the deepest – hypnotic – lapis blue hue.

The gown is beautifully tailored. Snatching her at the waist with elegant detailing such as the lace trims which makes this such an exquisite gown, and probably her best so far.


Laura Harrier In The Row – amfAR Gala Cannes 2018

After wearing Louis Vuitton exclusively during Cannes Film Festival on the red carpet, Laura Harrier switch things up on Thursday (May 17), for amfAR Cannes Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France.

The actress wore a dress from The Row styled with Bulgari jewels.

I’m sure you’ll agree that a gorgeous as this dress is, it looks better from the back.

I think some adjustments had been made to prevent side boob and as a result the bodice doesn’t flow so well.

Kristen Stewart In Chanel – amfAR Gala Cannes 2018

Kristen Stewart was one of the few non-models to attend tonight’s (May 17) amfAR Cannes Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France.

Keeping up her 100% record of all things Chanel at the festival, the actress wore a Chanel Resort 2019 semi-sheer embroidered knit dress which is reimaging the iconic Breton stripe.

I’m sure you are as surprised as I am to see Kristen with a dress which falls close to her ankles, as mini dresses tend to be her prefer choice alongside trousers, yet the look doesn’t feel out of step like a ball gown would.

Opting for the less is more approaching to styling, the real story here is her makeup.

Bruna Marquezine In Atelier Versace – 2018 amfAR Gala Sao Paulo

On Friday (April 13), actress Bruna Marquezine was joined on the red carpet for the 2018 amfAR Gala Sao Paulo by her Brazilian soccer beau Neymar, who’s recovering after foot injury sustained with French side Paris Saint-Germain. Fingers crossed he makes a full recovery in time for the World Cup in June.

Packing on the PDA, the couple put on a very amorous display, but she was looking gorgeous in her white Atelier Versace Fall 2017 jumpsuit that I can hardly blame him.

In the close ups you can see the stunning details which include Swarovski crystals which illuminate the whole look; especially the sheer silk chiffon skirt which amps up the drama.
