Cannes 2017: Uma Thurman Style Wish List

In 10 days the Cannes Film Festival will kick off and I am just getting really excited to see what all the stars will bring to the red carpets over the course of this years edition. The jury of this years edition is crazy good as is the star power in the films. Ahead of all of the big wishes for the red carpet I have some wishes for some casual looks for this years style star jury members. Up first is Uma Thurman who is the president of the jury for the Un Certain Regard section of the festival. I have a feeling that we won’t see Uma out on the red carpet as often as I would like but I could see her out on her way into jury deliberations and at some of the more laid back events. So I went to the runways and lookbooks to find the perfect looks to see Uma  wearing while hanging around the festival.  Each of these looks are things that I can see Uma wearing, but also might be asking a lot for her to go full glam for her street style looks. Uma isn’t known for her street style and any of these looks could help elevate her style for the duration of the festival. The first look is an electric blue Akris Spring 2017 RTW a-line dress which features a zip up neckline and three quarter length sleeves. This look is the boldest and most out there look for Uma that I have picked. It is not often we see Uma wearing bright, bold colors but I think that she looks beautiful in this shade of blue and that this would be a beautiful look for her. Following that blue look I went to Brandon Maxwell and this ivory ensemble from his Fall 2017 RTW collection which features a wide cuff collared button down and a pair of matching wide leg trousers. I pulled this look more for Uma to wear to the jury welcome dinner which is a more private event held on the eve of the opening of the festival. This could be the perfect look for Uma to wear for that more laid back event where members of the juries gather just to get acquainted with one another. I could also see Uma show up at the Hotel Martinez for the jury dinner wearing this cornflower blue Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2017 dress which features a crew neckline, full length flutter sleeves with decorative button details, and a sheer midi hem. Both of these looks would also be great on Uma with a great bag and sunglasses running from hotels to jury meeting and other smaller events. I went to Versace Pre-Fall 2017 to go for something that is a little more sporty and edgy with this dark green long sleeve midi dress which features ruching and zipper details to craft another great casual look for Uma. The last look I picked for Uma is very glam and very Jackie O meets Princess Grace meets punky modernism with this Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2017 suit which features a black square print asymmetrical jacket, white ribbed cashmere knit short sleeve t shirt, and a black square print pleated, a-line skirt. This is probably the second most likely look for Uma to wear from this set of wishes behind the Brandon Maxwell ensemble. I am really intrigued to seeing what Uma will bring to the festival as the president of this years Un Certain Regard section after having served as a member of the international feature film jury in 2011.
