Because they Cannes: Umbrellas and Red Carpet Glamour in the French Riviera

Published May 16, 2013 by The Feminist

When it Rains, It pours.” Whoever came up with this expression must have had last night’s Opening Ceremony of The Cannes Film Festival in mind. It is supposed to be the most glamourous event of the season, but instead of the Mediterranean sun everyone had hoped for, all they got was shitty rain. Glorious red carpet gowns got drenched and the long list of Hollywood stars were holding onto their umbrellas as another windy shower blew them across the red carpet.
However, no matter how shitty last night’s weather was, the dresses were still to die for! And there was Leonardo DiCaprio. If there is anyone who can make you forget the rain , it is him.

Gentleman as always, Leo was happy to lend his umbrella to his Great Gatsby co-star Elizabeth Debicki to protect her stunning designer gown. Swooooooon! (If I were her, though, I would have asked him to join me under the umbrella! What was it Rihanna once sang? “You can stand under my umbrella-ella-ella” Seems rather appropriate, don’t you agree? 😉 )

British supermodel Cara Delevinge, wearing a Burberry- dress and Chopard jewels, shows that it is indeed possible to be classy and sexy at the same time.

One of my favourite looks of the Opening Night was definitely Nicole Kidman in her stunning Dior outfit. I love how her shoes match the pretty pattern on her dress!

Freida Pinto looked absolutely breathtaking in a coral Gucci dress! (Coral is by far my favourite colour of this season!)

Julianne Moore was a vision in black and purple in her voluminous –yet elegant- Dior dress. No wonder she has such a radiant smile in this picture! (If I had the opportunity to wear such a dress, I wouldn’t be able to stop smiling too!)

I just LOVE that Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi opted for trousers and a stylish peplum strapless bustier instead of going for the floor-long dress. And how cool is her haircut?! 😉

“Shine bright like a diamond!” Naomi Harris followed Rihanna’s advice and opted for a gorgeous silver Calvin Klein dress.

  • Oh Leo.A swoon. If he got wed I’d certainly be there to dry him off 😉

    On a less positive note, I’m not loving the zipper of the back of Elizabeth’s dress, but the rest is looks lovely.
