at the Cannes Film Festival 2011
The Young and Stylish
Young and upcoming actresses sported casual elegant looks this weekend at Cannes.
Shorter silhouettes were popular.
Alexa Chung wore a long-sleeved white dress by Balenciaga, teamed with black pumps. My style star of the moment, Mia Wasikowska in pretty in a pale pink lace dress by Valentino. Clemence Poesy is sweet in a baby blue off-the-shoulder dress with a darker blue pair of suede sandals. Her loose waves add to the romantic feel of this dress. Astrid Berges-Frisbey wears an off-white lace Chanel dress with sliver beading on the hem and sleeves. Her black patent shoes were not the best choice for the dress. Another simple but elegant look from Mia. She wears a pleated silk Alberta Ferretti dress in creamy beige.
A few gowns that were attention grabbing and over the top.
Li Bing Bing wore a Cinderella-esque ballgown by Georges Chakra. I don't like the contrasting white feathered fabric with the pale blue teepee tulle skirt. Penelope Cruz chose a bejeweled lilac gown with tulle sleeves and train by Marchesa. L'oreal model Sonam Kapoor looked futuristic in a one-shoulder Jean Paul Gaultier gown. The black and white gown is covered with an obtrusive mesh net. I wonder if she should sit down in this dress.
Queen of Cannes
Chinese actress and international style icon Fan Bing Bing is one of the best dressed stars at the Festival this year. She is known for choosing high end couture designers and always looks so poised on the red carpet.
Fan brings back old Hollywood glamour in an elegant white Elie Saab gown with long lace shawl and Ferragamo clutch bag. For her next red carpet look, Fan chose a textured ombre gown by Atelier Versace that fades from violet to light lavender. The entire skirt is covered in tiny chiffon ruffles. At the 'Wu Xia' premiere, Fan wore Atelier Versace once again. Her silk organza mermaid gown has four layers that graduate from dark to ice pink. See the original versions of both Versace gowns at this post.
