Cannes 2017: L’Orealista Red Carpet Wish List Part 6

We have reached my last set of wishes for all of the L’Orealista’s who are undoubtedly packing there bags to head to the French Riviera to add glamour to the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. The women that are featured in today’s wishes range from new L’Oreal ladies to seasoned Cannes veterans. Sometimes I get really excited about newbies to L’Oreal because I get to see how they start on their journey and continue to grow year after year.  Blake Lively is one of the seasoned veterans of the Cannes Film Festival. Last year Blake’s film Cafe Society opened the festival and then she did two turns at the Palais de Festivals for L’Oreal, all while pregnant, and was my queen of the festival last year. This year I am praying to the fashion gods that Blake takes the time to jet out to Cannes to promote L’Oreal in the same glamorous way that she has the past several years. The first look I picked for Blake is the most dazzling of my wishes for her. This silver and white Chanel Spring 2017 Couture column gown which features dazzling sequins, plunging neckline, sheer hemline, belted waist, and a puff of feathers at the knee. Blake knows how to dazzle on the red carpet and Cannes is where she has had some of her best looks and I think that this Chanel gown would be another. It may not be the gown with a dramatic mile long train, but it is one that is still incredibly eye catching. Following that is a dramatic look with this blush and red Marchesa Fall 2017 RTW floral embroidered one shoulder column gown which features a beautiful bow on the shoulder. This look screams femme fatale siren and Blake knows how to deliver that old Hollywood moment on the red carpet and this would be no different. And the last look that I have for Blake to rock on the red carpet for her turn at Cannes this year is a pale pink Ralph & Russo Fall 2016 Couture column gown which features a plunging sweetheart neckline, off the shoulder sleeves, and a dramatic chiffon train trailing behind. This would be the uber feminine moment of these 3. Each look would be a beautiful look for Blake and I cannot wait to see what she will be delivering this year. Deepika Padukone was announced earlier this year as a face of L’Oreal and I immediately got excited because after her great promo tour for xXx: Return of Xander Cage and I know she could kill the game at Cannes. Almost as fast as Deepika was announced it was said that she was going to be working on a film and unable to attend the Cannes Film Festival this year. Last week that all changed again and now Deepika is confirmed to give us a turn on the red carpet at Cannes to promote the beauty brand. Deepika works with Hollywood power stylist Elizabeth Saltzman whose client list includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan, and Uma Thurman. I am really excited to see what Elizabeth and Deepika are going to cook up for her first Cannes as a L’Orealista. The first look I went to was this gorgeous and dramatic black Giambattista Valli Spring 2016 Couture strapless tired ballgown. I still don’t understand why this gown hasn’t been worn on the red carpet, but I think that it would be a beautiful statement for Deepika to show up on her first Cannes red carpet embodying the phrase “go big or go home.” This look is the perfect canvas for bold beauty and jewelry and in such a dramatic and glamorous fashion. Following that I went with feminine drama with a strapless Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 RTW tea length gown which features a fitted bodice, a full skirt, and floral embellishment throughout. I wonder if Deepika wearing a tea length gown would be compared to Sonam’s Dolce & Gabbana from a few years ago. I think that Deepika would kill the Cannes carpet in this look and with a pair of killer sandals that this would be one of her best looks this year. Rounding out the looks for Deepika to wear in Cannes is probably the most dramatic and out there. I think that if Deepika is really going to go for it with her first time at Cannes that this silver beaded Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture caped gown would be a really bold statement. I can picture the cape going up the steps of the Palais. We know from past looks that Elizabeth has styled that she loves a cape and I think that Deepika will do it incredible justice. Last year Freida Pinto skipped walking the red carpet at the Palais during the Cannes Film Festival last year but attended some of the festivals side events. I am hoping the gorgeous Indian actress will be back on the red carpets at the premieres this year adding to the glamour of the festival again. Aside from her sequined aqua Elie Saab gown at the Vanity Fair party earlier this year there hasn’t been much of what Freida has worn that I have been interested in, but Cannes has a way of getting people to up their game. The first look I want to see Freida wearing on a red carpet at this years festival is this purple toned grey sequin Atelier Versace Spring 2017 Couture sleeveless column gown. This gown is a modern take on classic glamour and I think that this look would be absolutely beautiful on Freida. Following that I went with a couture interpretation of a saree for Freida to wear. Since she didn’t walk the red carpet at the festival last year I went back to the Elie Saab Spring 2016 Couture collection which was inspired by India to pull this gorgeous cap sleeve embellished ball gown for Frieda to wear up the steps at the Palais de Festivals. I feel like I have never seen Freida take to the red carpet wearing any sort of traditional Indian dress, which is in stark contrast to other Bollywood turned Hollywood starlets. We have seen Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, and Aishwarya Rai all wearing gorgeous saree designs on the red carpet, but not Freida. This look would be the French couture designs that Freida has worn on the red carpet, and the traditional saree perfectly for the Cannes red carpet. The last look I have for Freida to wear on the red carpet is one that I want to see modified. I would love it if Freida stepped out onto the red carpet with this yellow Jason Wu Fall 2017 RTW velvet one shoulder dress which features an and asymmetrical cold shoulder neckline turned into a gorgeous gown with a dramatic train trailing behind it. Freida has never really had a major train moment on a red carpet and I think that a gown with a dramatic train is perfect for the Cannes Film Festival with its wide carpet and trip up the stairs into the Palais really just providing the perfect platform to do so. Whatever she wears I just hope that Freida brings it when she steps out this year. I was looking back at off of the red carpet looks that Karlie Kloss has delivered on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in years past and I was really disappointed with what I saw. I new that Karlie had never gone full glam, but instead usually a tea length dress that is breezy and fit for the French Rivera. I want to see Karlie up the glamour this year for her turn on the Croisette with L’Oreal Paris. I would love it if Karlie stepped out on the red carpet at the Palais de Festivals wearing this gorgeous black Atelier Versace Spring 2017 Couture spiderweb column gown which features a feathered hem. I was surprised that this gown was not on the red carpet at the Met Gala, but I am moving on with it for Cannes. I think that Karlie would really bring a regal grace to this gown and that the carpet at Cannes would be more than the perfect platform for this gown to have a major moment. I followed that up with a grey tired Chanel Spring 2017 Couture column gown which features a plunging neckline and a belted waist. This seems like something that we could definitely see Karlie wearing on the red carpet. The gown barely hits the floor and is really easy for her to dance her way up the red carpet. My final wish for Karlie is the one that I think is most likely. This strapless black velvet Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 tea length gown which features a fitted bodice and an asymmetrical beaded hem is the look that I can see Karlie giving us the strong leg pose that she almost always delivers on the red carpet. This gown is just awaiting a good femme fatale red carpet moment and I do think that Karlie could really deliver that look on the red carpet.We have arrived at my final set of wishes for L’Orealista’s at Cannes. Supermodel Maria Borges is a new face of L’Oreal and is expected to make her first appearance at the festival this year. We haven’t seen much of Maria on the red carpet before but her history includes looks from  Michael Costello and Balmain. Since it was just announced that Balmain was going to be collaborating with L’Oreal on a makeup collection which will debut during Paris Fashion Week later this year Maria might bring a look from the label to the red carpet at this years festival, but I want to see her expand her range. Maria can wear color wish such ease thank to her gorgeous skin tone and I hope that for her first Cannes red carpet season that she goes for it and doesn’t shy into the background. The first look I picked for Maria to rock on the red carpet at the red carpet at the Palais wearing this bold turquoise Alberta Ferretti Spring 2017 RTW tired, ruffle peasant style gown which features a modified a-line silhouette with a scoop neckline. This gown screams wear me at Cannes and I think that Maria would just waft down the red carpet in a very bold yet laid back and glamorous manner. Following that I went to full modern glamour with this bold orange Armani Prive Spring 2017 Couture one shoulder column gown. This gown is bold and modern which I think would be a perfect look for Maria to bring for her first Cannes Film Festival. The last look I picked for Maria to wear on the red carpet for her first Cannes is this dramatic and feminine black, red, and blue Zac Posen Fall 2017 RTW guipure lace ball gown which gown features a v-neckline, a sleeveless silhouette with overlay design, and a voluminous flared ball skirt with a beautiful floral embroidered motif. This is much more subtle than the other two looks that I picked for Maria in color but makes up for it in volume. I will be interested in seeing what Maria is going to bring for her first turn at the Cannes Film Festival.
