Adele Exarchopoulos made her red carpet debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013 with the film Blue Is The Warmest Color. Since then she has been back at the festival every year for one reason or another. This year Adele will be back on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet to promote her latest film, Sean Penn’s The Last Face. Adele has never been one of my favorite’s on the red carpet but I am going to give her another chance with this year’s red carpet. For the photocall I would love to see Adele take to the photocall in this white silk Louis Vuitton Fall 2016 RTW dress with a black leather harness bodice. I expect that Adele will wear Louis Vuitton exclusively but it is not something that thrills me. I am so over LV on the red carpet, as the looks don’t come across very well. I think that this look is probably the most suited for Adele and the sunshine of the French Riviera. For the premiere I would really love to see Adele hit the red carpet in a custom Prada or Miu Miu gown, but I am expecting that she will wear a custom Louis Vuitton gown. Picking a runway look I think that this ivory Valentino Spring 2016 Couture draped gown, styled with the runway’s gold body chain, would be a great choice for Adele. Big gowns with long trains and full skirts aren’t Adele’s thing. This gown would be so chic & elegant on the Cannes red carpet, perfect for a premiere. I’m a little surprised to know that Charlize Theron will be back at the Croisette to premiere her latest film The Last Face, directed by ex-boyfriend Sean Penn, at the Cannes Film Festival so soon after her last film. Charlize was at the Cannes Film Festival last year to promote Mad Max: Fury Road, which she rode all the way to the Oscars, and did so in fine style with a very dramatic bright yellow Christian Dior Couture gown. As I said earlier with Marion, I am not so sure that Dior will be in play (it was obviously missing from the Met Gala) at Cannes, so that leaves all their ladies up in the air. For the photocall I decided to forego Dior for Charlize in favor in this absolutely amazing silver Maison Marigela Fall 2016 RTW sequined cocktail dress. Only at Cannes could Charlize get away with wearing this dress in the middle of the day. I did pick a Dior gown for Charlize to change into for the premiere with this light blue Christian Dior Spring 2016 Couture gown with an asymmetrical neckline and sheer skirt. If Charlize wears Dior I am guessing that she will go for something custom and really dramatic, my Met Gala wish for her would be a great option for Charlize for this red carpet as well. I just hope that she really gives me something to ogle over, as her The Huntsman: Winter’s War promo tour really lackluster.I am hoping that Penelope Cruz will also be in Cannes for this premiere as her hubby Javier Bardem is one of the stars of The Last Face. Penelope kicked off the year in high style with some amazing looks while she was promoting Zoolander No. 2 with amazing looks from Balmain and Atelier Versace. I am hoping she brings her Latin glamour to the Cannes Film Festival red carpet in support of her hubby. Since it isn’t her premiere I figure Penelope will come in a back door or be very subdued, so she doesn’t steal the spotlight from the films stars. I would love to see Penelope take to the red carpet wearing this black and blue Azzendine Alaia Fall 2016 RTW long sleeve, lace, a-line gown as I think that it is absolutely gorgeous and she is one of the few who can get her hands on Alaia for the red carpet. A chic, simple updo, pink lip, black clutch, a pair of black sandals, and a pair of diamond dazzlers in her ears would really make Penelope the perfect plus one in Cannes. You are probably getting sick of seeing the Feature film jury on my Cannes red carpet wishes. While I know that they aren’t on every red carpet, I like to put out all the options I can for them because outside of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies we never know when they will step out. This is one of the bigger more glamorous looks that I have picked for Kirsten Dunst to wear over the course of the Cannes film festival. I think that this nude embellished sheer tulle gown from the Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture ball gown which features a scoop neck and spaghetti straps would be absolutely gorgeous on the Cannes red carpet. This gown would be so chic and light on the red carpet while being extremely dramatic at the same time. A chic updo, smoky eye, light pink lip, nude sandals, and a pair of yellow gold set diamond cluster earrings would make it perfect for Kirsten.I have said many times before (probably each time that I have talked about her) that I am praying that Vanessa Paradis doesn’t exclusively wear Chanel over the course of the festival, yet here I am making another Chanel wish. I am realistic with the fact that we are bound to see more than one Chanel look from Vanessa, I am just hoping that we see her wearing a varried style of Chanel looks and a varied arsenal of designers. I do think that this light grey Chanel Spring 2014 Couture trapeze gown which feature sequin and feather embellishments. I have been awaiting this gown to have a red carpet moment and I think that this could be a lighter look for Vanessa, as usually her red carpet MO is dark and moody. On the Cannes red carpet I think that dark look after dark look would be wasted and I think that this would be a light breath of air to see Vanessa wearing for Cannes.
The 2016 Cannes Film Festival opens next Wednesday May 11, 2016 and will run through May 22, 2016. The premiere of The Last Face is towards the end of the festival on May 20, 2016.
