The Cannes Film Festival is officially open and I am really really excited to seeing what all the stars are going to bring to the red carpet over the next 11 days. This year we are going to be seeing a lot of some of the same stars. Elisabeth Moss has two projects that are being promoted during the festival, and she is going to be making her Cannes debut. Nicole Kidman has four projects that she is a part of that we are expecting her to step out and promote. I was shocked to see that Top Of The Lake: China Girl was selected for the Cannes Film Festival because it is a television series and they are planning on screening six of the shows fourteen episodes. There was a time that I used to love seeing Elisabeth Moss on the red carpet. She was at her prime with her red carpet dressing when she was nominated for her role on Mad Men. With the critical success of The Handmaid’s Tale and her two premieres at Cannes I am hoping that Elisabeth will be on top of her game again. With the help of her Hollywood power stylist Karla Welch I really do think that is a possibility. For the Cannes photocall for Top of the Lake: China Girl I think that this Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2017 button down dress which features a tuxedo collar, full length sleeves, and multicolored stripes throughout. This dress is light, airy, and fun and I really do think that Elisabeth would look so chic standing on the balcony overlooking the French Riviera wearing this creation. For the premiere I went with a really glamorous option that might be a little out there. It is not often that we see New York based designers on the red carpets of Cannes but I think that this navy, teal, and bronze lurex Zac Posen Fall 2017 RTW gown which features a plunging v-neckline, a sleeveless silhouette, and a flared full length skirt with floral embroidered guipure lace design throughout is a perfect gown to be worn at the festival and I think that Elisabeth would look absolutely gorgeous wearing this creation on the red carpet. With a loose updo, lined eye, red lip, diamond cluster earrings, and a pair of black sandals this would be a beautiful look for Elisabeth to wear for her first Cannes Film Festival.Top of the Lake: China Girl is the fourth project that Nicole Kidman is presenting during the course of this years Cannes Film Festival. I cannot wait to see all of the amazing looks that I know that Nicole is going to bring to the red carpet during this years edition. Nicole’s looks since awards season have given me a reason to be excited and with her amazing history with the festivals red carpets I have high expectations. In her history Nicole has only worn couture for a photocall once and I am making a wish for that to happen again. I think that Nicole would look amazing standing next to Elisabeth at the photocall for Top of the Lake wearing this printed Armani Prive Fall 2016 Couture tapered suit with a asymmetrical black top underneath. This suit screams Cannes glam and I really think that Nicole would look so chic and effortless wearing this look on the red carpet. Bright yet simple makeup, sleek tucked back locks, a pink lip, and a pair of black pumps would finish this look perfectly. For the premiere I went with something more simple in silhouette than other gowns I picked for Nicole to wear during the course of this years festival, but is still extremely glamorous and impact making. I have been waiting to see this raspberry red Valentino Pre-Fall 2107 sequined gown which features cap sleeves and a squared sweetheart neckline on a red carpet since it was first presented back in January. I have been surprised that with all the major awards shows, galas, and movie premieres that have come and gone that no one has snatched up this gown up yet. I do think that Nicole would look very elegant wearing this gown on the red carpet at the Palais. With a loose romantic updo, red lip, diamond drop earrings, and a pair of dyed to match sandals this would be just one more beautiful look for Nicole to wear at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
The 2017 Cannes Film Festival is officially open and will run through Sunday May 28, 2017. The premiere of Top of the Lake: China Girl will take place on Tuesday May 23, 2017.
