The most talked-about red carpet dress at Cannes 2017 was definitely Nicole Kidman’s black and white ball gown by Calvin Klein By Appointment. The Australian actress sported many beautiful outfits at the festival, but this particular dress which she wore for the premiere of The Killing of a Secret Deer is a special one because it took 150 hours to make the skirt from 180 yards of hand-cut white tulle. The bodice was crafted from black satin and the Calvin Klein ’17 pumps with an ankle strap in the same colour were the perfect match. We also love the sleek, flat and loose blonde hair combined with a vibrant and eye-catching red lipstick.
Other colours that stood out on the red carpet included Diane Kruger’s voluminous dress from Christian Dior Couture spring 2017 collection with a tiered skirt and scalloped edge detailing in soft grey also looked spectacular against the backdrop, while Sara Sampaio’s Zuhair Murad gown glistened with its opulent embellishments and created an intriguing red-on-red effect.
Some of our favourite looks were the enchanting pastel dresses which could also be translated into bridal fashion. These included Elle Fanning’s pale mint green Gucci dress with bold floral detailing and Uma Thurman’s blush pink Atelier Versace dress.
There were some stunning wedding-worthy looks too! Charlize Theron wore a gorgeous white Prada dress which was draped with sparkly metallic beads and cleverly accessorised with matching necklaces and pendant earrings. And if you love that silver sheen, then you might think that the Ziad Nakad’s bejewelled dress worn by German model Barbara Meier would make a elegant wedding dress alternative.
Kendal Jenner’s structured gown from the latest Ralph & Russo couture collection was also white, but Adriana Lima truly mastered wearing bridal gowns on the red carpet when she showed up in another amazing wedding dress. This time it was a strapless white dress with a train by Naeem Khan and she styled it with a lace-like choker necklace, sleek hair and red lips.
Sonam Kapoor’s intricately embellished Elie Saab dress in bright pastel pink. Kendall Jenner also wore white, but her dress from the Giambattista Valli couture collection for spring 2017 was draped and short with a long train a floral print. A wedding look that oozes that Riviera chic? It is how we imagine a beach ceremony at the South of France!
