Today is a HUGE day for the red carpet, it’s Met Ball day. Tonight stars like Taylor Swift, Uma Thurman, Kendall Jenner, & Lena Dunham are all confirmed to attend, but before the chaos of glamour ensues I have a few wishes for the Cannes Film Festival. Every year we see a whole host of models take to the red carpet that are invited by Chopard, deGrisogono, and more. Alessandra Ambrosio is one that usually graces the Cannes red carpet at least once and I am sure that she will be there again this year. I would love to see Alessandra to hit the Cannes red carpet wearing this gorgeous green and purples strapless floral embroidered Atelier Versace Fall 2015 Couture corseted gown. I wasn’t wowed by any of the other gowns from this collection over the last fall, but I think that it’s chic bohemian glamour on Alessandra would be absolutely gorgeous. For most I would shy away from saying that this gown should be on the Cannes red carpet but on a model, who’s purpose for walking the carpet is to add just a little more glamour, I think that Cannes is the perfect place for this gown. Eva Herzigova is usually on at least one red carpet during the Cannes Film Festival, almost always a guest of Chopard. I would love to see Eva take to the red carpet at the Palais de Festivals this year wearing this gorgeous blue Roberto Cavalli Spring 2016 Couture sleeveless, embellished gown with a plunging neckline. Eva has worn a lot of Roberto Cavalli recently and I think that this gown would be a stand out look for the Cannes red carpet. I would add a statement Chopard diamond and sapphire necklace, silver mirrored leather pointed toe pumps, chic waves, and a red lip to really ensure that this gown is perfectly styled for the Cannes Film Festival red carpet.I usually love Joan Smalls on the red carpet, but at last year’s Cannes Film Festival I was less than impressed with her white Azzendine Alaia crop top and skirt, which I likened to a cheap tablecloth. I am hoping for a much more glamorous turn on the red carpet at the Palais de Festivals from Joan this year. I think that this Balmain Pre-Fall 2016 gown which features a fully crystal embellished, beaded fringe skirt, a black corseted top with a deep plunge paired with a statement belt, that the gown would be lost without. I would run with the uber glam idea and finish this look with a chic vintage inspired updo, diamond drop earrings, a pair of silver Christian Louboutin ‘Kristali’ embellished pointed toe pumps, a silver box clutch, and a red lip to really ensure Joan has a perfect ensemble for the Cannes Film Festival red carpet.Karolina Kurkova used to be one of my favorites to see on the red carpet, but recently she has been giving lackluster red carpet looks. I am hoping that if she takes to the red carpet at the Palais de Festivals during the Cannes Film Festival that she delivers something that really blow’s me away. This ombre gold Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture fully embellished ball gown would put Karolina back in my good graces. This gown just oozes effortless, classic glamour which is perfect to ensure that Karolina has an amazing moment on the Cannes red carpet. Finishing this look with a pair of gold Christian Louboutin dragonfly embellished ‘Bat Bat’ sandals, red lip, totally gorgeous sculpted updo, and diamond drop earrings would perfectly round out this gorgeous red carpet ensemble. Rounding out this post is the always gorgeous Spanish supermodel Nieves Alvarez. After awards season I posted a wish list of a bunch of looks I would love to see Nieves wear on the red carpet, any of them could be Cannes Film Festival worthy. I am really hoping for more than one appearance from Nieves but if I had to choose just one look for her I would be this white Stephane Rolland Spring 2016 draped gown with a crystal embellished neckline and feathered hem. This gown combines modern glamour with classic elegance, making for a perfect red carpet look for the Cannes Film Festival. Adding a white and silver striped Edie Parker ‘Jean’ acrylic clutch, a pair of silver Christian Louboutin ‘Paris Ete’ strappy sandals, chic updo, red lip, and a pair of diamond and emerald Bulgari drop earrings would really drive home this red carpet moment for Nieves.
The 2016 Cannes Film Festival opens on May 11, 2016 and runs through May 22, 2016.
