For 16 years now L’Oreal Paris has been sponsoring the Cannes Film Festival adding its glamour to the red carpets over the two week span of the festival. Last year was the first year for Bianca Balti to attend the festival for L’Oreal and she wore a bold Dolce & Gabbana floral and cherub printed gown complete with puffy sleeves and mermaid hi-low hem. I would not expect the Dolce & Gabbana muse not to wear the brand during the festival and I have two ideas for what she should wear for the red carpet at the Palais de Festivals. These two red dresses were presented on the runway of the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 RTW collection. Well she can not show up wearing a cocktail dress on the red carpet at Cannes as a L’Oreal spokesmodel. The red gown to the left should just be made to be a floor length column dress and the one on the right would go to the floor and have a small train. Of course this is what I would do if I were to style her for this event.
Cheryl Cole walked the red carpet at the premiere of ‘Amour’ during last years Cannes Film Festival and despite the torrential downpour that ensued looks absolutely amazing wearing a stunning Stephane Rolland creation for the second year in a row. Well why I may have another Stephane Rolland gown for Cheryl to wear for this years event I have a few other wishes as well. First up we have a stunning white Georges Chakra Spring 2013 Couture gown. I think that this is a modern statement that we don’t often see at Cannes and Cheryl is the girl that can bring that to the event. In the middle we have a silver to navy ombre Nicholas Oakwell Spring 2013 Couture gown. This is a gown from an up and coming British designer and I think that Cheryl would be a great client for the brand and this gown would be a perfect statement for the Cannes Film Festival. And finally we have this stunning black Stephane Rolland Spring 2013 Couture gown. If Cheryl sticks with the designer that two years running has given her a spot on the best dressed lists of the festival then I think that this is the gown that she should wear. Its simplistic but modern with the sheer panel and would be a sleek statement to be made during the festival.
Claudia Schiffer is a German supermodel, one of the crop of originals from the 80’s and 90’s. She is another L’Oreal Spokesmodel and a Cannes Film Festival red carpet regular. Every year Claudia takes to the red carpet at the festival for at least one premiere, usually wearing Chanel. The model has been a muse for Karl Lagerfeld as he designs his collections for Chanel. This spring there were several designs that I could see Claudia wear from the Chanel Spring 2013 Couture collection, the first we have is a white lace gown with a caplet trimmed with black satin ribbon. I think out of all the looks I have featured here that this is the gown that Claudia is most likely to wear even though it is not in her black gown comfort zone. The look I would most like to see Claudia wear is this black tulle layered Chanel Spring 2013 Couture a-line gown. This would make a bold glamorous statement that we rarely see from Claudia. The final wish is a big stretch because not only is it not just black but has a floral print. This would look stunning on Claudia and she would be one of the few that I can picture making this look come to life on the red carpet.
