The Un Certain Regard selection of the Cannes Film Festival begins today and there are three films that I am excited to see the stars of take to the red carpet. First up is ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’ staring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy, which will premiere on May 17th. Jessica has been a staple in Cannes since her debut in 2011. When shopping the runways for Jessica’s red carpet look I found this goldenrod Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture embroidered evening gown with a deep-v. This is a dress that when I saw it take to the runway I screamed Chastain Chastain Chastain and I will just die if she takes to the red carpet wearing it. The dress photographed very stiff on the runway but in the video moves very well. I would not pair the look with any clutch at all (per the Chastain norm), Chopard yellow diamond earrings, a pair of gold Charlotte Olympia pumps, and a pretty up-do would give Jessica a perfect look for the Cannes red carpet. Lea Seydoux will be premiering ‘Saint Laurent’ in the main competition on the same day and Eva Green is confirmed to walk the red carpet on the same night, a fabulous night ahead.
Joining Marion Cotillard and Gong Li on the red carpet on May 20th will be the cast of Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut ‘Lost River.’ Eva Mendes will make her major red carpet return with this premiere. I hope that she is able to do so wearing this pink Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture gown with blue floral embellishments on the upper bodice. I saw in the background of some Met Ball pictures that someone has purchased this gown for their wardrobe and wore it for the event but they were not recognized by any of the picture agencies. I am hoping that this doesn’t mean that this gown is off the market as I think it is a perfect look for the Cannes Film Festival. An updo is a must for this look with the embellishments so close to her face. A pair of blue Jimmy Choo sandals would finish off this look perfectly for the red carpet. Her co-stars Christina Hendricks and Saorise Ronan are also confirmed to help Eva and Ryan premiere this film.
At the Closing Ceremony of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival actress now turned director Asia Argento pulled out bad ass bitch attitude on the red carpet wearing a silver slip gown and flipping off the photographers. Who knows what Asia will turn up as for the premiere of her directorial debut ‘Incompressa’ on May 22nd. When she was on the jury of the festival in 2009 Asia gave some great fave wearing some amazing looks from Armani Prive almost exclusively the entire festival. Although she has branched out wearing more designers I am hoping that Asia will return to the brand for this years festival. I think that this black silk Armani Prive Spring 2013 Couture spaghetti strap gown with red and white embellishments at the top of the bodice would be a simple yet perfect statement for Asia to make on this red carpet considering what she did last year. Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Charlotte Gainsbourg are expected on the red carpet at the Palais de Festivals that night and its is also the same night as the amFAR Gala.
