It has now come to an end the 72nd edition of the most glamourous film festival ever and, even this year, Cannes confirms itself as a cultural hub for the screening of films destined to become greatly successful. Nevertheless, it is also a magnet for photographers gathering from all over the world to capture images of the many international stars who walk its renowned red carpet.
Actresses and models attract attention sporting dreamy dresses and precious jewellery, as well as flawless make-up and hairstyles.
Among the members of the jury, the chicest was undoubtedly Elle Fanning. The powder pink long dress with cape effect sleeves and waist embroidered flower designed by Gucci and glitter eyeshadow magically transformed her into a fairy princess, yet with the contemporary touch of the minimal hairdo and fiery red lipstick.
Sparkle was also the watchword for Tilda Swinton who exalted her androgynous beauty with a pearl grey gown with crystal encrusted silver draping by Haider Ackermann.
Decidedly more minimal, Carla Bruni’s look: a Celine one-shoulder satin dress, complemented by precious jewellery and a bun with maxi fringe.
Selena Gomez and Chloe Sevigny played being divas, showing off high slits and necklines capable of fully highlighting their femininity. The first with an immaculate two-piece by Louis Vuitton and a vibrant lipstick, the other with a retro mermaid dress by Mugler, paired with long gloves, matching stole and ballet bun.
The most rock&roll? Surely Charlotte Gainsbourg who took advantage of the red carpet to wear a one-shoulder zebra and glitter mini dress by Saint Laurent and to confirm her French charm with a messy hairstyle.
The masculine mood was also present in Cannes, as shown by Shailene Woodley and Anja Rubik. While the actress wore a black & white evening redingote coat byDior Haute Couture, the Polish supermodel displayed her seductive side by flaunting a braless look in a Saint Laurent black satin suit, enlivened by a scenographic collier.
Total white see-through, feathers, diamonds and eyes in the foreground thanks to a strategic makeup and false lashes, then, the main elements shown off byAlessandra Ambrosio who chose to wear Ralph & Russo Haute Couture for the occasion. While Liya Kebede opted for a romantic and ethereal tone thanks to her Valentino butterfly embroidered dress.
Bella Hadid and Julianne Moore, instead, focused on colour. Bella by choosing a Roberto Cavalli Archive Greek goddess, bright red dress, themed with an ad hoc hairstyle, and the actress with a green off-the-shoulder chiffon long gown by Dior Haute Couture and matching earrings.
