White Dominates The Red Carpet At Cannes

Cannes Film Festival 64

The 64th Cannes Film Festival kicked off last Wednesday and with only a few days remaining of week-and-a-half long festival, I thought that It’s All Style To Me would highlight some of the elegant Red Carpet looks that were competing for the attention of the paparazzi at Cannes this year.  In spite of the tendency to “color block”, a wave of white was dominant at this year’s Festival, offering a genuine sensation of glamour paying homage to the model of sophistication and timeless grace inspired by the festival’s poster.

Uma Thurman in Versace and Chopard

The tone was set during the opening ceremony by the dazzling Uma Thurman, who wore an immaculate FW11 Versace white dress bordered with feathers.  A very elegant pair of nude Jimmy Choo’s created a complete silhouette of glamour perfected.  The only hint of colour conceded by the star was through a pair of Chopard emerald earrings and matching bracelet.  Uma, also a jury member, had begun her day in a white Dolce & Gabbana dress (not shown).

Faye Dunaway Arrival

Faye Dunaway, the face of the Festival, arrived in a delicate evening gown.  She was accompanied by Jerry Schatzberg, who directed Faye in Puzzle of a Downfall Child in 1969, in which the actress played a fashion model going through a nervous breakdown.  The film, which wasn’t selected for Cannes at the time, was chosen in a fully restored version this year to open the Cannes Classics (La Croisette).

Jane Fonda Cannes

For the preview of the film Sleeping Beauty by Julia Leight, Jane Fonda was sublime in an Emilio Pucci evening gown accessorized with a Chopard diamond ring and earrings.

Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung chose to pair her Balenciaga dress with a Chopard necklace made of platinum and diamonds and a pronounced yellow teardrop diamond.  Her silhouette, very sixties, brought an air of freshness to the red carpet.

Astrid Banks-Frisbey had chosen Chanel for the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Fountain of Youth photo call, which came alive in her red open toe shoes.  For the red carpet, the young actress did the House of Chanel proud by choosing a gray embroidered lace dress adorned with a Chopard bracelet in white gold and diamonds.  Hard to miss, the perfect silhouette of new mom Penelope Cruz in blue velvet FW11 Stella McCartney, accompanied by matching Casadei satin heels.

Jude Law
