Festival de Cannes 2013: Best Dressed Part 1
The prestigious 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival opened on 15th May 2013. The well-attended festival at the beautiful French Riviera is a melting pot of world cinema and style. Though the last four days have not been perfect weather-wise, we have seen some very glamorous frocks take to the Grand Théâtre Lumière red-carpet. Today on Style Mantra, I make an attempt to profile my best-dressed from each of the days. No mean feat that, if you consider the choices one has!
Day 1: Go Big or Go Home
Nicole Kidman kick-started the proceedings at the Great Gatsby premiere, looking amazing in an intricately embroidered Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture ankle length frock with a fitted bustier and big skirt paired with delicious pink pumps and a bight fuchsia pout.
The Cannes regular, Fan BingBing made her presence felt with a beautiful pink satin Louis Vuitton gown with a beaded bodice and long train. She accessorised with a Louis Vuitton tasselled minaudiere and side swept hair.
The biggest surprise was Zhang Yuki who looked like the perfect Cannes princess in her gorgeous Ulyana Sergeenko Spring 2013 Couture bight green voluminous gown with a plunging neckline. She finished off her stunning look with a Jimmy Choo clutch, coiffed hair and red pout.
What is Cannes without a few floor sweeping big gowns and Day 1 truly set the tone for the event!
Day 2: L’Oreal girls dazzle
Day 2 had Sonam Kapoor walk down the red carpet in perhaps her best look to date. She wore a Dolce & Gabbana custom floral printed big gown with a fitted strapless bodice paired with matching pumps.
Fan BingBing brought out a glittering Elie Saab lemon yellow Spring 2012 Couture gown with elbow length sleeves paired with striking orange lips, silver box clutch and Chopard jewels.
The ever consistent Freida Pinto shimmered in a silver beaded Sanchita gown with crystal dragonfly motifs and a thigh high slit. She accessorised with Jimmy Choo Lance sandals and a Swarovski clutch. Bright red lips and an elegant up-do completed her look.
Day 3: The Cannes Divas
Eva Longoria finally made an appearance on the red carpet on Day 3 in her staple floor sweeping gown, this time a nude, sparkling Zuhair Murad gown with a high neckline, full sleeves and an open back.
Berenice Bejo stood out in a white tiered Spring 2013 gown from Alexis Mabille, paired with a vivid blue tuxedo jacket with satin lapels. Her Olympia Le-Tan clutch was a great choice.
Fan BingBing was quite the hea-turner again on Day 3, in an Ulyana Sergeenko duchess satin heavenly blue gown from her Spring 2013 Couture collection accessorised with brilliant Chopard jewels and a neat braided updo.
Day 4: New faces, fresh style
Cheryl Cole looked fantastic in a rich maroon Zuhair Murad, full sleeved gown with a train.
Carina Lau was the epitome of grace in a caped white Elie Saab gown.
The scene stealer of the day was Nieves Alvares who looked divine in a beautiful custom red strapless Ralph and Russo gown with a dramatic train flowing from a hip detail. She added a gold Louboutin clutch and Chopard jewels to her look.
