I was a little worried that Cannes 2015 had peaked a little early, day one and two were amazing, then Diane Kruger came to town and another high and then I haven’t really seen anything to wow me, lots of beautiful but nothing stunning enough to make the blog, until Emily Blunt who is in the French Riviera promoting her film ‘Sicario’. The actress has donned three looks and each one has been divine, especially her dazzling custom Stella McCartney gown.
When I saw Diane Kruger’s name on the list of Cannes 2015 attendees I was excited, she rarely disappoints, but I wasn’t prepared for her red carpet look to be Prada, I had Chanel, Elie Saab and Giambattista Valli in mind, but oh my am I pleased that she surprised me, as I was completely floored when I saw her in this powder blue embellished halter gown.
There is something special about Cannes, maybe even more so than the Oscars, and that’s because everyone gracing the red carpet really does go big, always glamorous, and most importantly very over-the-top. The film festival really does deliver great red carpet magic for nearly 2-weeks, it is pure bliss for someone like me who is obsessed by gorgeous gowns, and the opening day really did set a high standard.
As always Cannes attracts all the top actresses, some of my favourite Diane Kruger moments have been in this French Riviera town, I still get goosebumps when I look at this Jason Wu Barbie pink dress from 2010, and do you remember this stunning Dior Couture gown and gorgeous Giambattista Valli Couture gown both from 2012, so I’m more than a little excited to see her later in the festival to support her film ‘Maryland’.
As well as Diane Kruger, the festival red carpet will also host Charlize Theron, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Emma Stone, Salma Hayek, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Emily Blunt, and Marion Cotillard, to name a few, all know how to rock a red carpet and I can’t wait to see what they wear.
Last night was the Opening Ceremony of the 68th International Cannes Film Festival and the premiere of ‘La Tete Haute’, and it was one hell of a red carpet with Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o and Fan Bingbing really shining out. Click through to see their stunning looks and who they were wearing.
If ever there was an actress that deserved to be immortalised as a Barbie it is Fan Bingbing, as come on she is already doll-like perfection. I have been blown away by the Chinese star’s red carpet looks since I first saw her at Cannes many years ago, she has this ability to wear dramatic dresses with ease, and I love that she incorporates her own culture into her exquisite looks.
One of her most recognisable Cannes looks from back in 2010 was this divine one-sleeve Dragon Robe gown by Laurence Hsu, it really is a piece of art with the waves, the tapestry-style print and the slinky silhouette, and Barbie really has recreated it perfectly. Not only is the gown amazing, I really love this look, but more than that they’ve really capture her delicate beauty right down to the blue coloured nails perfectly.
I really have to add this beauty to my collection, the only thing I wish they had also included was her drop earrings, but that is just me being extra picky!!! You can buy the Fan Bingbing Barbie for $39.95 from Barbie Collector.
Will you be adding Fan Bingbing to your Barbie collection?
