Over-the-Top Fashion at the 70th Cannes Film Festival
Many of the world’s most wealthy and famous jet to the French Riviera each year for the prestigious annual Cannes Film Festival where the fashion they adorn themselves in is almost equally important as the films they are there to view! Currently heading into its final weekend, the 70th edition of this lavish festival began on May 17th and concludes this Sunday the 28th. Historically, over-the-top glamour and elegance has radiated throughout this festival, imagine Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Brigitte Bardot. Today, everyone from the photographers to the A-listers walk the red carpets, attend the grand soirées, and parade through the city streets in their finest attire.
Love happens wherever glamour and elegance bloom, so here are a few of our favorite over-the-top ensembles from this year’s red carpets in Cannes.
KOKET’s top pick is Emily Ratajkowski’s intriguing gothic jumpsuit seen here on the red carpet of the ‘Loveless’ premiere, an exquisite custom-made outfit by Peter Dundas, the former creative director for Roberto Cavalli.
The Balmain entourage shined on the red carpet at ‘The Beguiled’ premiere, our favorite look from the group was Maria Borges in this white gown evoking old-Hollywood chic. Over-the-top glamour and elegance perfection!
Kendall Jenner made her own fashion rules in Cannes this year and we loved her choices! On the red carpet for ‘120 Beats Per Minute (120 Battements Par Minute)’ she wore a contemporary flowy Giambattista Valli minidress with a pair of sheer Wolford socks (yes sheer socks!) and Jimmy Choo sandals. And at the Fashion for Relief event she really stepped out of the box in a black crop top with a dramatic train and denim shorts embellished with a Swarovski crystal belt, a whole different kind of over-the-top glamour from Alexandre Vauthier’s Spring 2017 collection.
Model Izabel Goulart showed off her assets in this striking intricately bejeweled sheer gown by Roberto Cavalli. Oh the amount of work that must have gone into creating this dress!
In Cannes representing L’Oreal Paris India, model Sonam Kapoor looked beautiful in this shimmery gold gown by Elie Saab that exuded absolute over-the-top glamour and elegance.
