2020 Cannes Film Festival What Could Have Been Wish List: “Between Two Worlds”

Respected screenwriter Emmanuel Carrère’s second film Between Two Worlds, starring Juliette Binoche as an investigative journalist who goes undercover as a cleaner to probe social precarity in the northern French port of Caen, had been submitted for consideration for the 2020 Cannes Film Festival official selection. His debut feature The Moustache premiered in Directors’ Fortnight in 2005 and Binoche is a figure we often see in Cannes. It could mean for a super glam red carpet moment. To make sure that Juliette Binoche delivers all the glamour and elegance I know she can in Cannes I turned to two of her good friends. For the photocall I picked this periwinkle blue Burberry Fall 2020 RTW suit which features a sash cummerbund waist and straight leg trousers. It is definitely a super chic moment and I know that Juliette would definitely deliver modern boss meets ladies who luncheon look with that effortless glam moment on the photocall platform overlooking the French riviera. A pair of statement Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 “Orchids” earrings made of titanium and set with natural-looking sapphire petals, tsavorite buds, and black cabochon-cut opals, a wavy casual updo, simple defined eyes, rose pink lips, and silver, nude, and gold metallic and patent leather Burberry ‘Annalise’ pointed toe pumps would definitely bring the look together oh so glamorously for Juliette. For the premiere of Between Two Worlds I dug deep into the Jean Paul Gaultier Couture archives for the perfect moment for Juliette to bring to life on the red carpet at the Palais de Festivals. I saw this gorgeous black and white gown which features a structured bustier bodice, a criss-cross tulle halter neckline, and a long tulle train when looking for Gaultier moments I wanted to see on the Met Gala red carpet in the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2002 Couture collection. This look is super chic and timeless while also being perfectly on brand for Gaultier. It meshes sex and glamour perfectly and I know Juliette would bring this look to life styling it with a sleek side parted bouffant inspired updo, smokey eyes, red lips, a pair of black Roger Vivier ‘Marlene’ strass ball ankle strap sandals, and a selection of Chopard Red Carpet Collection jewels including a pair of white diamond and ruby chandelier earrings and a matching white diamond and ruby cocktail ring. So while Juliette is the only one in the film I have wishes for today I still have a plethora of wishes for you based on stars we typically see on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. Kering, the corporation which owns luxury labels like Gucci, Balenciaga, and Saint Laurent, is one of the sponsors of the Cannes Film Festival. So we usually see a couple of stars over the course of the festival who walk the red carpet as guests of the company. Amber Valletta has been a good friend to Saint Laurent and Anthony Vaccarello. I decided to dive deep into the YSL archives to find the perfect gown for Amber to wear on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. This black sheer feather embellished off the shoulder gown which features long sleeves from the Yves St. Laurent Fall 2000 Couture collection is perfectly on brand for what Saint Laurent has become, but still evoking that super ladylike glam of the YSL by YSL years. This look has that sense of sex appeal I feel defines modern glamour and I believe that Amber would be able to sell it to me with effortless ease. A sleek center parted bob tucked behind the ears, smokey eyes, nude lips, a pair of black Saint Laurent ‘Lexi’ ankle strap pointed toe pumps, and a selection of dazzling Anita Ko jewels (as Amber is the current face of the label) including white diamond ‘Rain Drop’ fringe earrings, and layered necklaces including a white diamond and emerald ‘Hepburn’ collar, and a white diamond herringbone ‘Zoe’ choker all would make sure this look oozes modern sophistication on the Cannes Film Festival Red Carpet. Supermodel Cindy Bruna knows how to bring the drama to the Cannes Film Festival. Over the years she has rocked the red carpets in superb moments from Balmain, Ashi Studio, Zuhair Murad, Georges Hobeika, Zac Posen, and more. Earlier this year Cindy rocked the red carpet at the amfAR New York gala wearing a hot off the runway Stephane Rolland Spring 2020 Couture white gown with a sculptural cut out detail on the thigh. It inspired me to turn to the designer once again for her to have a MAJOR moment on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. I would love to see Cindy bring this bougainvillea pink satin duchess Stephane Rolland Spring 2020 Couture “Moon” sack gown which features a circle cutout at the neckline embroidered with crystals that turn to straps on the back, open sides, a half open back, and a dramatic cape back that turns into a long train. This look is definitely not easy to wear. There is a lot of fabric in this gown, and heavy fabric at that. It will definitely take someone with a lot of presence to really make this work. Cindy has that supermodel presence and I do believe that she would make sure that she is wearing this gown and that the gown isn’t wearing her. Now for most red carpets I would usually go with very simple styling allowing the gown to be the focus of the look, but this is Cannes so go big or go home is the mandate. So I would take this gown styling it with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, nude lips, a pair of hot pink Alexander McQueen ‘Nova’ rock crystal studded PVC strap slingback satin sandals, and MAJOR de Grisogono High Jewelry pieces including ‘Juicy’ cabochon rubellite, sapphire and emerald earrings and a complimentary Gaudi inspired cabochon emerald, white diamond, and ruby bracelet. It would definitely fit that mandate and make for a really MAJOR moment for Cindy. I have wishes for Marion Cotillard to attend the 2020 Cannes Film Festival to promote a film, but as she has modeled for Chopard in the last year I decided I wanted to pick a couple of looks for her to wear on the red carpet to help promote the high jewelry label on the red carpet. Now earlier this year Marion was announced as the face of Chanel, but I want to see her still give a little variation in labels as she makes multiple appearances at different events. That is why I went for sexy glamour opting to put Marion in this blush pink Atelier Versace Spring 2020 RTW sheath gown which features intricate bead, sequin, and crystal embellishments, a halter neck, and a super sexy thigh high split. This look is super glamorous and I know that Marion will bring the glamour to the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. While I just said that everyone should go big or go home then I think that something simple silhouettes done right can be just as impactful. I think this would show you while being simple in silhouette the major moments comes from the vibes. This look would ooze glamour on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet which features a sleek beehive inspired updo, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a pair of blush pink Aquazzura ‘Chain Reaction’ crystal embellished ankle strap satin sandals, and dazzling white diamond and light pink sapphire Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2019 floral drop earrings. Viola Davis signed her L’Oreal spokesmodel contract back in September of last year and Cannes 2020 was supposed to be her first as a spokesmodel for the label. It would have also been her first trip to the festival ever. It was hard to believe that given how many movies and Oscar nominations Viola has under her belt. Well nevertheless I am really excited to finally see Viola take her place on the famed red carpet at the Palais de Festivals as a L’Orealista when the time finally comes. I also went for a simpler silhouette for Viola for her debut look picking this navy, midnight blue, and red beaded organza Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture strapless column gown which features a light tiered skirt. This isn’t something I feel like I would have been drawn to for Viola for say the Globes, SAG Awards, or the Oscars, but Cannes means upping the glam factor and taking risks. I do think that Viola would definitely be able to bring this look to life on this red carpet with glamorous ease. I would love to see her style this look with a teased afro hairstyle, smokey eyes, ruby red glossy lips, a ruby red satin Judith Leiber Couture ‘Soho’ faceted box clutch with a crystal embellished clasp, a pair of deep metallic blue snake leather Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist Disco’ platform ankle strap sandals, and a statement white diamond Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2019 floral collar necklace. All of these details would ensure that Viola’s Cannes Film Festival debut is glamour defined.
