The 2017 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala will take place in Cannes on Thursday and I am really uber excited about what the stars will wear. I have been really, really please with everything that has come down the red carpet at the festival and its coordinating parties and I know that the stars will bring it for amfAR. The amfAR gala is one of the most desirable tickets of the festival and I know that we will be in for such an amazing red carpet. With the bar that the stars have set I have really high expectations for the stars to wear on the red carpet at the amfAR gala. Bella Hadid has been killing the game in Cannes wearing the likes of Alexandre Vauthier, Dior, and Roberto Cavalli Couture so far and I am hoping that her style game is not slowing down. I am usually the first person to roll my eyes at a “naked dress” on the red carpet anymore, but if anyone could make me not mind it will be Bella. I would love to see Bella step out on the red carpet at this years amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala wearing this black embroidered sheer Alexander McQueen Fall 2017 RTW column gown which features side cutouts and a featured hem. I love this gown, but there are only so many stars that I really think that could turn this gown into a really major moment on a red carpet, and Bella is definitely one of them. Bella has the edgy glamour that I know would really make this into an absolutely major red carpet look. My only fear when it comes to wishing for Bella to wear this look is the undergarments that she will choose. I tend to find that the point of contention with Bella’s style. If she doesn’t have the perfect nude undies then I would like to see McQueen line this gown with a perfect match nude lining to hold the integrity of the gown. With a pair of emerald Bulgari earrings, sleek center parted bob, lined eye, red lip, and a pair of black sandals this would be another totally amazing moment for Bella at Cannes.Emily Ratajkowski is one of the co-chairs of this years gala so I would bet that she will return to Cannes after giving us premiere looks from TwinSet and Peter Dundas already at the start of the festival. Neither of Emily’s first two red carpet looks did anything for me and I am really hoping that she is back on her game when the amfAR Gala kicks off on Thursday. I think that Emily, who in addition to being a co-chair I would imagine will walk in Carine Roitfeld’s fashion show at the gala, would look amazing walking the red carpet wearing this yellow Versace Fall 2017 RTW chainmail halter dress features a draped design and twisted halter strap. This gown is modern and edgy but still glam enough to be worn on a red carpet at Cannes. At the amfAR Gala we see a whole host of styles on the red carpet so this ankle length draped gown would still fit in perfectly. I would have Emily add a pair of simple black sandals, diamond cluster earrings, a dazzling diamond bracelet, and loose waves tucked behind the ears to really make this a beautiful moment. Jessica Chastain has been on an upward curve with her red carpet looks and I have to say that she is really killing the game when it comes to her fashion choices this year. I was really excited to see Jessica on the red carpet as a jury member for the festival and I am really looking forward to seeing more of her over the course of the festival. As one of the event chairs we are expected to see Jessica take to the red carpet at the amfAR Gala, taking the night off from her jury duties. I was watching the livestream of the Christian Dior Cruise 2018 collection waiting for gowns that we could see at the Cannes Film Festival. The moment I saw this red clay printed brocade a-line gown come down the desert runway I ran to my computer and refreshed Vogue Runway until I could get a a picture of it for a wish for Jessica Chastain to wear for this years amfAR Gala. I can just picture Jessica really making this into a truly major moment on the red carpet at amfAR. The color would just pop and compliment her hair and skin tone to total perfection. This is a total contrast to the lime green Dior Couture ensemble that Jessica wore for the premiere of The Meyerowitz Stories yesterday. With old Hollywood waves, a lined eye, dazzling drop earrings, and a pair of gold sandals I know that Jessica would shut down the red carpet. Maria Borges is the latest L’Orealista and she will be making her Cannes debut at the Palais de Festivals ahead of the 2017 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala. I would expect that the beautiful Angolan supermodel will walk the runway in Carine Roitfeld’s latest runway show. I want Maria to really serve some major looks on the Cannes red carpets during her debut and this emerald green embellished Roberto Cavalli Couture flowing gown which features a daring plunging neckline would do just that. Despite the fact that Cavalli is in a time of transition between creative directors we have seen a lot of looks from the Italian label on the red carpet and I think that this gown wold be another gorgeous addition to the list of looks from the label this year. This look is such a statement that I think that with just a pair of diamond cluster earrings, a green smokey eye, glossy nude lip, and a pair dyed to match satin sandals that Maria would deliver a gorgeous look for her first amfAR gala at Cannes. As I was writing this post I was writing this post last night I was watching the Billboard Music Awards and I looked up when Celine Dion performed “My Heart Will Go On” and I just let out an ughhhhhhh because I had just gotten to this spot on the list and she was wearing the Stephane Rolland gown that I had picked for Rihanna to wear on the red carpet at the amfAR Gala this week. My initial resentment for it faded quick because Celine werked that gown delivering it as a major performance moment. So I had to quickly go back to the drawing board to find the perfect look for Rihanna to wear for the amfAR Gala this year. I don’t know if the songstress will stick around after presenting her Rihanna Loves Chopard haute jewelry collection at the beginning of the festival. I am praying that she does because I love a good Rihanna moment. After the Stephane Rolland gown I wanted to see Rihanna wear got snatched up I decided to stick with the dramatics with this black Ralph & Russo Spring 2014 Couture collection which features one sleeve with a ginormous silk flower on the shoulder, beaded lace column silhouette, and a dramatic silk train jetting out from the hip. This gown is definitely not for the faint of heart to wear on the red carpet, and Rihanna is pretty much fearless when it comes to her red carpet style and has the presence to really make this gown come to life on the red carpet. Since the gown is black it would be a perfect background for Rihanna to pair some of her dazzling creations from her Chopard collaboration with. A sleek bun, smokey eye, nude lip, and a pair of simple black sandals would be the perfect finishing touches to this major look.
