On this 8th day of competition at the Cannes Film Festival, Louis Garrel and the actors in his film The Innocent, presented this Tuesday, May 24 in official competition, had to make room for the rest… of the world, literally. This new climb of the steps had a special flavor to say the least since it marked the 75th anniversary of the event. To mark the occasion after two years of pandemic, Thierry Frémaux, general delegate and Pierre Lescure, president of the Festival, invited the cream of the 7th art and the world of fashion to blow out this symbolic candle. Suffice to say that all were on their 31 and for the most part, black, a mark of sobriety, class and chic, was in order.
Adèle Exarchopoulos arrived in a long flowing black dress with a slit up to the thigh, a sexy outfit embellished with two long transparent black gloves. Same spirit for Mélanie Laurent. The star ofInglorious Basterds wore a long black rhinestone dress whose thick straps tied around her neck. It is a more gothic style that Emmanuelle Béart has adopted. The actress was dressed in a long thick velvet dress from head to toe, a total discrepancy with her angelic blonde.
Cara Delevingne arrived on the arm of Olivier Rousteing, artistic director of Balmain, one of whose works she wore: a velvet dress squared with black tulle giving way to transparency and finished with an imposing train. Fortunately, the stylist was there to come to the rescue of his model, whose movements were somewhat complicated. Another see-through red carpet look: Maggie Gyllenhaal. Jake’s sister, accompanied by her darling Jeanne Cadieu, wore a black skirt that she had associated with a long-sleeved top that was anything but covering. The top also left the actress’s bra largely visible without falling into vulgarity.
At his side, the unbeatable Isabelle Huppert. The actress, with two female interpretations won at the Festival in 1978 for Violette Noziere and in 2001 for The Pianist, wore an elegant draped dress that an elegant golden necklace was enough to dress. Louise Bourgoin revealed herself in an original, daring and sexy outfit, highlighting her curves. The actress wore a simple long black skirt and a headband as a top adorned with large golden metallic bands forming an artistic work on the actress’s chest. It was in a slightly more vintage atmosphere that Bella Hadid landed on the red carpet in an elegant strapless bi-material dress from Versace, which a draped fabric finished decorating.
Margot, wife of Benoît Magimel, also appeared all in chic dressed in a black dress whose straps formed a large bow tie just above her chest, a nod to the one worn by her husband. Dress also for Rossy de Palma, president of the Camera d’Or jury, but in tuxedo mode without a shirt, offering a generous neckline to photographers. No sexy but flawless class for Amira Casar whose imposing dress sparkled with a thousand lights. As muse, Léa Seydoux had obviously set her sights on a very original and sexy Louis Vuitton dress, ultra-split, with a vinyl top. A James Bond Girl look that could only suit her. Same tribute for Kristen Stewart to a house dear to her heart: Chanel. The beauty made the show in pants and bustier with half-open buttons. As for Jeanne Balibar, the actress wore explosive studded leather overalls next to the more classic ones of her friends Sandrine Kiberlain and Sabine Azéma. A real show worthy of Fashion Week.
