Another day, another slew of stylish (and not so stylish) stars on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival! Day 8 sees Rachel Weisz in an opinion-dividing gown, Aishwarya Rai turns diva on us in a BIG dress and Kendall Jenner works her outfit like no one else could. Now for a closer look…
Rachel stepped on to the red carpet in this beautifully designed, emerald, satin Prada gown. I know that some people have criticised the dress for the fit being “unforgiving” but I think she looks classically beautiful!
Not only is the colour divine on her, she styled the dress with dazzling droplet earrings, a simple black clutch and a sultry, smokey eye – quite the 1930’s throwback!
Kendall made her Cannes film festival debut in this cropped top and skirt combo by Alaia, it’s exactly what I would expect from her and she looks fierce.
The 2-piece has interesting mesh illusion panels and the skirt has enough material for a show-stopping twirl or two, which she delighted photographers with! The bright red lipstick with her raven hair styled into a relaxed updo is très chic!
Sophie is brilliant, casually stepping out in a rainbow of sequins in this backless, floor-length gown. I can only imagine how this glittered in the light!
For a touch of extra elegance, she wore her hair in a delicate updo with emerald drop earrings to bring out just one of the many colours in the multi-coloured assortment!
Nikki swept on to the red carpet in this Azzaro column gown with a dramatic billowing chiffon train, the deep blue colour is beautiful but it is made even better by the dash of orange, quite warrior princess!
She looks supremely elegant but understated, further proving the point that sometimes less is more.
Aishwarya Rai attended the premiere in the obligatory diva-sized dress of the night in this architectural design from Ralph & Russo’s Fall 2014 Couture collection.
This dress is big and full of drama, which automatically makes it standout, though I’m a bit unsure about the spider outbreak that’s happening from the centre of the dress, that’s my worst nightmare!
Speaking of nightmares… Oh Jane. What a difference 4 days can make, from her electric blue Versace number to this theatrical Schiaparelli Couture gown.
Did she borrow this from Morticia Addams’ wardrobe? The sombre look attempts to be jazzed up by a fuchsia pink sash but it looks like something that has attacked her in the wind, rather than part of the outfit.
Petra competed with Jane’s Halloween costume for worst dressed in this Zuhair Murad silk peplum jacket covered with sequins and crystals, paired with a floaty chiffon skirt from the Spring 2015 Couture collection.
The outfit had been modified so that the small split in the jacket was much wider and the skirt included a thigh-high opening, I don’t know why anyone would modify it from runway to red carpet, the original was much more tasteful.
