Magnificent, luxurious and extravagant is how to describe this years Cannes Film Festival. With hundreds of A-list celebrities stunning the red carpet, Cannes Film Festival celebrated its 70th anniversary by going all out with ball gowns and elegant dresses; making it a fairy tale heaven. With Eid just around the corner, there is no better place to look for an outfit than here. Yet, why not go all out and get inspiration from this years Cannes Film festival?
Everyone who attended looked incredible, but we have narrowed it down to our top five outfits from the festival. Want to recreate these looks in a modest and more casual manner? We have got you covered with our style inspirations.
1. Cinderella dream
Aishwarya Rai took over the red carpet with this extravagant and immaculate Cinderella dress. The beautiful Michael Cinco ball gown was seen walking down the red carpet, with intricate embroidery, making it every girl’s dream dress. Taking social media by storm, this look was by far one of the most talked about at Cannes Film Festival.
To recreate this look, get a similar styled embroidered Abaya, with matching colour-way from iiLA. To tone down the volume, this Abaya keeps the embroidery at the top, making it modest but just as beautiful. Pair with dark red lipstick, 'Cheerleader' by the infamous Huda beauty, as Ashwariya did to get her look.
2. Layered Lace
We just had to feature Ashwariya again with this stunning piece from Yanina Fashion. Looking as beautiful as ever, on the second day of Cannes Film Festival, she was seen yet again stunning the red carpet with this gorgeous layered ensemble. The lace and floral patterns made it both unique and striking.
For a casual recreation of this look, we recommend a similar green lace floral print top, which flairs out at the bottom by Store WF. Pair with wide leg pants by Femi9 and gold flats by RK by Raafat Karimeh, to give the layered effect the actress did. Add a bright pink lipstick, Matte Icon, by Huda beauty to add that extra splash of femininity and colour for summer.
3. Classic green
The beautiful Deepika Padukone was seen wearing this elegant and chic dress by Brandon Maxwell. Despite its simplicity, the unique cuts and slits makes it stand out from the rest. The moss green block colour with the velvet green statement heels goes perfectly with the dress to create a powerful collaboration.
The green maxi dress by Roddiva is the perfect modest alternative to this dress. The zipper on the bottom gives you the option to make the slit on the leg as high as you want to suit your specific preferences. The simplicity with the long sleeves makes it similar to Deepika's whilst maintaining humility. Pair with emerald green satin Farfalla platforms by Aruna Seth for that green on green look similar to the Bollywood star. Add a pair of statement earrings and a simple bracelet to complete this look.
4. Red Queen
Forgetting about the wardrobe malfunction with the dress she wore on the first day of Cannes Film Festival, she made a powerful comeback with this million dollar looking dress by Dior. The simplicity with the jacquard design all over gives it an edgy yet classy appeal. The statement necklace and pearl bracelet completes the look, making it a stand out piece for the red carpet.
To get this look for a formal evening event, get this red fitted maxi dress by Chase. The long sleeves and high neckline takes a modest approach to this stunning dress by Dior and the floor length gives it the ceremonial and classy look. Pair with the necklace by Kyles Collection and a bracelet by Cielle to perfectly recreate this look.
5. Blush Pink
Wow, is the first word that comes into mind when looking at this exquisite dress Sonam Kapoor wore by Eli Saab. The chiffon flowy material over the glitter figure hugging dress in pale pink is everything a girl needs in her life. The sleeves were definitely the focal point, draping all the way to the floor and blending in with the dress, creating a distinctive and stunning masterpiece.
Get the perfect Abaya version of this dress with Fradaje's pink Abaya. The sleeves may not be as extravagant as Sonam’s, but definitely stand out, making it a perfect alternative. This open Abaya can be paired with light blue jeans and a white top for a summer day look or darker colours for an evening look. Add a pair of gold flats, statement earrings and a bold bracelet to complete the look.
