The Cannes Film Festival is more than a cinematographic exhibition. Special attention is reserved for the outfits, as the glamour of the Cote d’Azur, intensify the red carpet fashion stakes.
During the year, the Palais des Festivals is not much to look at, but while the Film Festival is on, the Palais becomes the centre of attention for movie buffs and fashion lovers alike.
For this edition, Dolce&Gabbana dressed some of the most beautiful women on the red carpet. We’re just over half way through the event and Swide thought to do a round up of who wore what at Cannes, why and some exclusive details from our colleagues in Cannes.
Marpessa Hennink, Dolce&Gabbana long time muse is wearing a stretch charmeuse leopard print mermaid gown. The simplicity of the design elevates leopard print to red carpet. Marpessa’s choice of jungle inspired attire, and hair was in tribute to the movie Madagascar 3.
Natasha Poly, Dolce&Gabbana runway darling, wears an angelic off white lace strapless gown. The gathering at the waist and over the bodice accentuate her enviable figure.
Eva Herzigova, top model and friend of Dolce&Gabbana wears a special piece inspired by Marylin Monroe. The workmanship of the dress is unique: feather light chiffon overlaid with delicate blush pink lace. The dress is also encrusted with hand etched crystal droplets- truly show stopping. Our woman on the ground tells us that the dress, in real life looks good enough to eat. Eva’s son in fact tried to rip off some of the crystals and have a taste.
Bianca Balti, the face of Dolce&Gabbana and the embodiment of Italian beauty stunned in a one off piece from the FW13 collection. Bianca has become so popular that she had difficulty getting into the car from the amount of paparazzi who anxiously waited to see what she was wearing. The dress builds upon important elements form the FW13 runway collection. The extraordinary volumes, a contemporary revisitation of 18th century ball gowns matched to the baroque frescos inspired print with intricate flowers and cherubs created a historical and thoroughly Italian statement on the Croisette.
