Cannes 2021: Key fashion moments you cannot miss!

Fashion is having an exciting moment right now. The Couture Fashion Week just wrapped up in Paris, the 74th Cannes Film Festival is still on and all of France is breathtakingly chic in couture glitz and glamour. 

After a whole year of lockdowns and restrictions, the comeback of the red carpet is the most talked about event of summer and celebrities obviously went all out with their fashion quotient. From Bella Hadid’s dream-like vintage gown to Spike Lee rocking the most memorable outfit of the week- it has been a week of iconic, dazzling fashion exhibitionism…

1. Bella Hadid

The brass lung necklace which made heads turn!

We love an iconic couture moment. Bella Hadid brought oodles of drama to the red carpet in one of the most stunning high-fashion looks of the Cannes Film Festival. The gold-dipped lung-hugging necklace, the sensational avant-garde black gown from the Schiaparelli Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2021/22 collection, was the talk of the red carpet and social media around the world. 

The 24-year-old model pulled out a vintage white Jean Paul Gaultier column gown from Jean Paul Gaultier’s 2002 spring/summer collection

For the second look, the supermodel attended the annual opening ceremony and a screening of the film Annette in a Jean Paul Gaultier piece looking like an absolute (feminine) dream. The hair, earrings, tulle and train – all spot on.

2. Spike Lee

Living it up on the red carpet!

A refined suiting moment with a twist – who doesn’t live for some red carpet magic!

Spike Lee, the director of BlacKkKlansman, Da 5 Bloods, and dozens of other films, wore the most memorable suit of the Cannes red carpet. His eye-popping, bright pink tuxedo and custom-made Nike Jordan’s and black fedora, was every bit suave, sophisticated and stylish as you can imagine. He’s definitely one of the most fashionable people in Hollywood. 

3. Jessica Chastain

The strapless, semi-sheer Dior gown with thin waves of black velvet is equal parts elegant and cool!

She looked both both whimsical and elegant. Jessica Chastain’s Christian Dior black mesh gown did the impossible – it served goth vibes in a very graceful way. We love the side ponytail, the bold lip and the three-tier pink neckpiece. Mesh and lace have been getting their moments in the Spring-2021 runways of Fendi, Balmain, Kenzo, amongst others, and it’s delightful to see it make the crossover to the red carpet. 

4. Hellen Mirren

The Oscar-winning veteran actress looked incredible in a head-to-toe saffron outfit!

The veteran actress served us inspiration on how to rock the red carpet at 75! She styled her radiant, sunshine dress with a breathtaking emerald necklace and a pair of matching drop earrings.

5. Hana Cross

The model sparkled in her glittering metallic knee high split gown

Wearing a plunging sequin Rami Kadi dress, the 24-year-old model vowed the red carpet. She kept the makeup and hair simple and classy – the phenomenal dress was the hero and it sure did all the talking. 

6. Maggie Gyllenhaal

43-year-old Maggie Gyllenhaal looked absolutely stunning in a wore a floor-length crimped dress with a cape. 

7. Diane Kruger

There’s no ordinary in Cannes!

German actress and former fashion model, Diane Kruger was a picture of elegance in this black Georgio Armani number. The stunning Chaumet jewels were dazzling too!
