The Top 10 Best Dressed at the Cannes Film Festival 2017

Cannes Film Festival 2017

The Top 10 Best Dressed at the Cannes Film Festival 2017

From 17th– 28th May 2017, the annual Cannes Film Festival was held on the glamorous Côte d’Azur, France, on the famed Palais steps. The Cannes Film Festival is always a star-studded event—from film stars to models, artists to directors—but this year was particularly special as Cannes celebrated its impressive 70th anniversary.

Here at Jinnie Femme, the home of European luxury fashion, our favourite part of Cannes is (of course!) checking out the stunning gowns on the red carpet.

Our top 10 best dressed at Cannes 2017 epitomized the beauty and elegance of luxury fashion.

Cannes Film Festival 20171.  Elle Fanning in Dior

At this year’s Cannes, Elle Fanning stole the show. With Elle’s countless beautiful gowns this festival, it was hard to choose our favourite, but this Dior Spring/Summer haute couture 2017 gown was simply stunning. Inspired by Van Gogh’s “Jardin Fleuris”, and constructed by laying the dress over the painting to match the colours and pattern, each petal was hand-sewed using hundreds of feathers.

2. Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen

At the opening gala, we adored Jessica Chastain’s black embroidered Alexander McQueen pre-collection Fall-Winter 2016/2017 gown. This sweetheart bodice dress with a sheer panel featured intricate bird and floral stitched detailing, and looked radiant against her fiery locks.

3. Nicole Kidman in Rodarte

Nicole Kidman wore so many beautiful dresses at Cannes this year that it was hard to choose one! While many loved her Calvin Klein tutu dress, we fell in love with her Rodarte Fall/Winter 2017-2018 sequined cropped jacket and skirt at the premiere of “How to Talk to Girls at Parties”. While some hated it, we simply adored the vintage gold sequins, delicate peach ruffles, and high neck as Nicole embodied 1920s glamour.

4. Lily Donaldson in Dior

At the “Loveless” premiere, model Lily Donaldson looked like a dream in this Dior dress. With a sheer, boned corset bodice and a tulle ballet-style skirt with tiny polka dots, this petticoat was simply adorable. Finished off with Cartier jewellery and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Lily looked timeless.

5. Doutzen Kroes in Balmain

Model Doutzen Kroes sparkled in this long-sleeved, sequin-embellished silver custom Balmain mermaid gown on the red carpet of “The Beguiled”. The gown featured a sheer panel and a long, glistening train. With her slicked-back hair, the look had a striking effect.
