Although the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival has come to an inevitable close, the statement fashion looks of this event have left a lasting impression. Celebrities, A-listers and luxury fashion brands have all come together in the star-studded city of Cannes to celebrate the film industry and debut the latest trends on the red carpet. What better place to show off glamorous couture gowns than the charming Riviera in the south of France? Here is a glimpse at Fame 10’s fashion highlights for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival season:
10. Eva Longoria
Actress Eva Longoria shined in a Marchesa gown which featured multicolored crystals, layered tulle sleeves and a plunging neckline. The unique shape of the dress makes Longoria look angelic and ultra refined as she floated across the Cannes red carpet. Her teased updo and drop-style earrings added the perfect amount of Hollywood glamour to this stunning red carpet ensemble.
9. Doutzen Kroes
Victoria Secret angel Doutzen Kroes radiated in a custom Balmain gown studded in head to toe silver glitter. The high neckline mixed with mesh detailing along the elbows and knees made this dress a serious show-stopper. Doutzen’s slicked back half-up hairstyle showcased her runway-worthy cheekbones and the subtle smokey eye she rocked played in perfectly with the silver coloring of the dress.
8. Tina Kunakey
Italian model Tina Kunakey definitely made a name for herself on the Cannes red carpet this year. Her lavender Armani Prive dress featuring halter details, a plunging neckline and sheer skirt made our jaws drop. The pastel shade of this dress does wonders for Kunakey’s complexion and the whimsical design and playful layering of this look granted Kunakey a well deserved spot on our best dressed list.
7. Irina Shayk
Supermodel Irina Shayk radiated in a golden Atelier Versace gown that showed off her impressive post-pregnancy figure flawlessly. This floor-length gown covered entirely in sequins made her sun-kissed skin glow on the red carpet. Bright yellow initially seems a difficult colour to pull off, but Irina does so fabulously and totally changed our minds about the seemingly unwearable shade. The thigh-high slit, plunging neckline and body-flattering ruching left us in awe of Shayk’s glamorous red carpet style.
6. Adriana Lima
Adriana Lima stunned in an ivory, bridal-inspired Naeem Khan gown that featured a slim silhouette and sweetheart neckline. The dress was minimal enough that her diamond Chopard bib necklace and subtle red details really made a statement. Lima’s raven colored locks were slicked back into a polished half-up style and her stark crimson pout and cherry red nails were a perfect contrast to the pure white coloring of the gown.
5. Elsa Hosk
Victoria Secret angel Elsa Hosk looked stunning in an elegant powder blue Alberta Ferretti gown featuring a high slit and an elegant off the shoulder neckline. Her classic Hollywood waves and diamond dangling earrings added the perfect Cinderella final touch to her look. The satin texture of the gown channeled serious princess vibes, but Hosk still added a sexy twist onto the look by featuring a revealing slit to showcase her long, glowing legs.
4. Bella Hadid
Runway model Bella Hadid looked both alluring and graceful in her silk Alexandre Gauthie gown featuring a strapless neckline and ruched detailing along the front. Her sapphire necklace popped against the pale pink dress and added a bold touch of Hollywood glamour. Hadid has made thigh high slits an icon during her time on the red carpet and is rarely seen in a dress without one, which clearly is working for her! Hadid kept her hair and makeup quite natural by incorporating glowing cheekbones and natural textured waves in her cropped hair.
3. Elle Fanning
The ivory Vivienne Westwood gown Elle Fanning donned this Cannes Film Festival was both unique and eye-catching. It was traditional with its sweetheart neckline and glamorous train, but also mixed in contemporary style with the colorful unicorn embroidery trailing along the back. In terms of beauty, Fanning slicked her hair back in a ballerina-inspired bun and rocked a bold red pout that tied in flawlessly with the cherry-colored embroidered detailing of her dress.
2. Diane Kruger
Diane Kruger never fails to wow us with her red carpet looks and has followed suit at the Cannes Film Festival with this princess-inspired Dior gown. The detailed scalloping, ruffled layers and open back were both elegant and romantic. Although the scalloped layering has undeniably been done before on the red carpet, Kruger made this look contemporary by adding trendy diamond and black stacked chokers. Her hair was textured and whimsical, but tied back into a low chignon to truly allow the sequined detailing of the front of the dress to shine.
1. Uma Thurman
Kill Bill actress Uma Thurman stole the show this 2017 Cannes Film Festival in her simple yet glamorous pale pink Atelier Versace gown. The ruched details, off the shoulder neckline and glittering diamond necklace epitomized Hollywood elegance at its finest. The slim fit dress hugged her curves in all the right places and revealed a flattering amount of skin without being overbearing. Her hair was super refined by featuring a simple side part tucked behind her ear. The blonde beauty dazzled the red carpet and truly proved that simplicity and elegance are key when it comes to a best-dressed red carpet appearance.
