Red carpets, gowns in the afternoon, and more models per capita than anywhere else in the world – it must be Cannes Film Festival time! As curtain drops on the closing ceremony, we are counting down our ten fashion moments from Cannes 2017.
10. UMA THURMAN IN VERSACE
Uma Thurman is obviously a fan of the phrase “all that glitters is gold”, opting for a fringed embellished gown by Versace. Comprised completely of crystals, the look was made to stand out on the carpet. Bonus points for the pin straight lob as well!
9. LILY-ROSE DEPP IN CHANEL
Karl Lagerfeld’s latest muse, Lily-Rose Depp stuck to her streak of great red carpet looks in a Grecian gown by Chanel. The ankle length hem kept the look youthful, and minimal make up against her undone curls added a little bohemian flair to the look.
8. NICOLE KIDMAN IN DIOR
The always reliable Nicole Kidman had amazing looks every turn on the carpet this year, but it was her tea length Dior gown that topped our list. The off shoulder spaghetti straps gave a wink of sexiness, and the emerald green hue played off her skin perfectly.
7. HAILEY BALDWIN IN ELIE SAAB
The first entry for the new model pack, Hailey Baldwin made quite the impression at her first appearance at Cannes in a plum, structural Elie Saab gown. The velvet juxtaposed against the delicate embellishment gave the look a textual feel, and the cinched belted waist kept it fun and youthful.
6. MARIA BORGES IN BALMAIN
It couldn’t be a Cannes red carpet without a little Balmain! We loved Maria Borges’ peach toned gown, from the crossover bodice to the feathered train, to her smoky make up – she definitely earned a place on the best dressed list.
5. SOFIA RICHIE IN ALBERTA FERRETTI
Big sister Nicole might have some fashionable competition! The younger Richie took to Cannes in a black swan-inspired gown by Alberta Ferretti. The dramatic gown was weighted perfectly with minimal make up and the simple hair kept the look clean and not over the top.
4. JESSICA CHASTAIN IN ARMANI PRIVE
While many opted for monochrome gowns, Jessica Chastain stood out in a vibrant orange Armani gown. The sculptural silhouette was fitted perfectly, and the slight bustle at the top of the mermaid skirt was a fun addition.
3. KENDALL JENNER IN GIAMBATTISTA VALLI
One of the first wow moments of the festival was Kendall Jenner’s voluminous Giambattista Valli gown. The floaty silhouette was fun and feminine, and the top knot kept the look current.
2. ELLE FANNING IN GUCCI
Gucci is a red carpet staple for a reason, and this gorgeous floaty floral look was a definite winner for Elle Fanning. The soft pastels played against her skin perfectly, and the bed of floral appliqué was a quirky touch!
1. BELLA HADID IN RALPH & RUSSO
After that dress last year, Bella Hadid is coming for the queen of Cannes crown, serving a week’s worth of amazing looks, but this Ralph & Russo gown was the definite highlight. Looking like she was poured into it, the embellished corseted look was an absolute showstopper!
