Well, it’s that time of the year again! No, not Christmas! Cannes! The Cannes Film Festival is one of the most glamorous and sought-after events of the year. Right off the bat, the Opening Ceremony of this year’s festivities was already a fashion-filled spectacle as stars showed off their best looks on the red carpet. Surprisingly, the big trend of the evening was shimmer, with silk, satin, and sequinned gowns glimmering against the flashes of the paparazzi.
Among the A-list attendees, these were the ones that best showed off the night’s biggest trend.
To say that Cannes 2019 jury-member Elle Fanning was show-stopping on the red carpet is a bit of an understatement. In her peach satin Gucci gown with a flowing cape and a purple floral accent by the waist, she owned that night, no question! Her look was the kind of glamour that’s to be expected from this famous festival. And sure enough, this wouldn’t be the only time she’ll look this good on the red carpet this week!
As far as shimmering red carpet dresses go, Eva Longoria also dazzled in her one-shoulder Alberta Ferretti creation. The design was more complex and sexier than that of Fanning’s, but undeniably, it shone just as brightly!
Being the cool girl that she is, Tilda Swinton brought the edginess that night with her sparkling chain-mail dress by Haider Ackermann. Paired with her platinum blonde pixie cut and androgynous attitude, her look was almost armor-like in its shimmering splendor! Only she can embody that caliber of high fashion and still look glamorous!
Among the models in attendance, former Victoria’s Secret Angels Izabel Goulart and Alessandra Ambrosio reigned supreme! This year, Goulart started her Cannes fashion parade with a sleek and sexy backless lamé cut-out column from Etro. It accentuated all her best curves and she never looked this svelte since her days as a runway angel. Ambrosio, on the other hand, had a little bit more fun with her floaty Ralph & Russo haute couture number. The feather detailing by the slit was what captured all the attention!
It was just the first day, but celebrities were already going all out with guns blazing! Who else is excited for this glamour-filled week ahead?
