Cannes 2017: Jury Photocalls Red Carpet Wish List

The 2017 Cannes Film Festival is now less than a week away and I am getting super excited. This years festival is shaping up to be the best year yet. The festival will kick off next Wednesday with the photocall for the international feature film jury headed by Pedro Almodovar and includes Will Smith, Maren Ade, Agnes Jaoui, Park Chan-Wook, Paolo Sorrentino, Gabriel Yared, Fan Bingbing, and Jessica Chastain. I am super excited that Fan and Jessica are on this years jury. I am hoping that we see them on the red carpet every day over the 11 day course of the festival. Having Jessica and Fan on this years jury is literally a dream and I an getting really excited to see what couture they will bring to the festival.  I’m starting my official festival wishes for Fan Bingbing with couture. Cannes is one of the few places where you can get away with wearing couture before noon and if anyone is going to do that then it will be Fan. For past Cannes photocalls we have seen Fan wearing Valentino and Elie Saab gowns, I don’t think she will go quite the route for her photo call next week. Instead I went with this beige Elie Saab Spring 2015 Couture ensemble which features an embellished long sleeve tunic over matching bell shaped pants and a feathered bolero. This look is 60’s society glam to the core and I think that if anyone would be able to pull off such a look for a photocall it would be Mrs. Bingbing. I think that this look is chic and glamorous. Styled with a pair of beige satin sandals, a loose updo, lined red lip, and gold ear clips that this would be the perfect look for Fan to wear to kick off her run at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.Jessica Chastain will  join Fan Bingbing on the balcony overlooking the croisette for the international feature film jury photocall next week. Between Jessica and Fan I know that someone will wear something couture for this photocall. I would love it if both ladies went for couture design. In contrast to the heavily beaded and feathered Elie Saab look that I picked for Fan to wear I went with something more daytime appropriate for Jessica to wear photocall. I think that this pink and white lace Chanel Spring 2017 Couture knee length dress which features a slight bell shape, cap sleeves, a peter pan collar, and a white belted waist band is the perfect look for Jessica to wear. This is a very chic and ladylike look for her to bring to life and perfect for a photocall against the bright and airy setting. I think that with a loose chignon to show off the collar, neutral makeup, & a pair of white pumps that Jessica will kick off the festival with a major moment. Last but not least is the gorgeous Uma Thurman who is the president of this years Un Certain Regard section of the festival. She will not join Jessica and Fan at their photocall, instead she will have her own  members of her jury (who have not been revealed yet) on the second day of the festival. For her feature film jury photocall in 2011 Uma wore a very chic white Dolce & Gabbana pencil dress which fit in perfectly for the setting, but this year I want to see Uma really go for the glamour from opening to close. When I first saw this white Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture silk suit which features black window pane print, a white waistband, three quarter length sleeves, and an off the shoulder lapel framed portrait neckline I immediately thought of Uma and when she was announced as part of this years Cannes Film Festival I thought it the perfect place for her to wear it. The shape is classic but the air of the look is so modern. With her statuesque glamour I think that Uma would this look to life for this photocall. A casual look updo, neutral makeup, and pair of simple black sandals are all I would add to make this look total perfection.
