While American stars came to life after the Costume Institute Ball, European celebrities gathered on the French Riviera, where the 71st Cannes Film Festival kicked off last night.
The program of the main cinema marathon of spring was opened by the film of Iranian director Asgar Farhadi “Everyone knows”, in which Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem played brilliantly on the red carpet. In addition to them, that evening, Julianne Moore, Cate Blanchett, Kristen Stewart and other actresses posed in front of photographers who chose luxurious evening dresses from the best world brands. We look at the most vivid images from the opening of the festival.
The main star of the evening was Penelope Course, which emphasized its striking exotic appearance with a stunning vintage Chanel dress. It was this brand, by the way, that became the record holder of the red sill of the previous evening. Floral pattern on black fabric, a skirt and top decorated with feathers – in such a dress, the actress could not be overlooked.
Despite the fact that stylists do not recommend appearing on the red carpet in scarlet dresses, so as not to merge with her in the photo, red-haired diva Julianne Moore chose a luxurious Givenchy Couture cape dress with a bright fiery shade. In which, however, she looked flawless.
Cate Blanchett, who has a special mission this year – she leads the jury of the festival – made a bet on timeless classics and black for a gala evening. She appeared on the track in a lace dress from Armani Prive. Those who are familiar with the evening outings of the actress remember that in the same dress she already appeared on the Golden Globe in 2016. Repeated appearance in the outfit is not an oversight of the stylists of the star. The fact is that Kate supports the Green Carpet Challenge movement. “Too much clothing is thrown into landfills, damaging the environment. Therefore, in today's climate, it’s just ridiculous that we cannot wear such clothes all our lives, ”the actress explains.
Chanel messenger Christine Stewart, of course, chose an evening dress from this brand, without changing her favorite black color. A feature of the outfit was its cut, the decor of woven ribbons, and a brooch in the form of a lion served as a symbolic decoration.
Another movie star who remained betrayed by Chanel that night, Chloe Sevigny. But unlike her colleague, the actress emphasized bright colors in the image. A white dress made of corrugated fabric effectively complements a corset belt made of metal texture.
One of the trends of the evening can be called an imitation of feathers and fringe on dresses. In a translucent white dress with small fringe from Louis Vuitton came out Lea Seydoux, who is the face of the brand.
Another fan of Chanel is Chinese actress and singer Fan Bingbing. She appeared in the most magnificent evening dress with a skirt of airy multi-layer mint flounces. Paired with a metal corset and sparkling necklace, she looked like a Disney princess.
One of the most tender exits was a French actress Frederick Belle. To captivate the audience, she appeared on the red carpet in a lush dress of a nude shade from Yanina Couture, graphically decorated with black palm branches.
Dutch model Romy Strade headed for metallic, and posed on the red carpet in an iridescent silver dress from Alberta Ferretti. A corrugated skirt fluttering in the wind gave romanticism to the image, and insolence – a deep neckline, decorated with a sparkling necklace.
Brazilian fashion star and blogger Camila Coelho demonstrated one of the most spectacular outputs. She chose a black mini dress from Ralph & Russo, the drama of which gives a fluffy skirt, a train of fabric petals.
