2020 Cannes Film Festival What Could Have Been Wish List: “Tre Piani”

Italian director Nanni Moretti is hardly a stranger to Cannes. His kitchen-sink drama The Son’s Room picked up the Palme d’Or in 2001, and he served as president of the jury in 2012. His next film, Tre Piani, is Moretti’s first adaptation of another source material, lifting from an Israeli book by Eshkol Nevo. Moretti relocates the setting from Tel Aviv to Italy, telling the story of three families in different apartments in the same condominium, all of whom are suffering crises that include child abuse, loneliness, and ruminations on a haunted past. With another Cannes regular, Alba Rohrwacher, amongst the cast it would have definitely been a strong contender to screen at this years festival. Alba Rohrwacher has walked the red carpets at all the major film festivals, Cannes included, in the past. So had Tre Piani been selected to screen at this years Cannes Film Festival I would have been interested in seeing what she would bring to the red carpet. When I think of Alba’s style almost all of the looks that come to mind are Valentino. So I went right to the Italian label for the two looks I wanted to see Alba wear in Cannes starting wit this black silk long sleeve floral digital print midi dress from the Valentino Fall 2020 RTW collection. Alba’s style is very simple and laid back. It almost always looks like she has put very little effort into her ensembles. So when it comes to styling I would have kept her center parted loose updo, no make-up vibe, and a pair of black leather Valentino ‘Rockstud’ chunky heel ankle boots to have kept this look in tune with Alba’s style. For the premiere I went a lot more dramatic with the look I wanted to see Alba bring to life at the Palais de Festivals picking this bold red chiffon and velvet caped Valentino Spring 2020 Couture gown. Alba is much more about simple silhouettes and more of a casual vibe on the red carpet. This gown is not that. Now I know that Alba isn’t going to walk the red carpet with bare breasts, but I’m not sure the right way to cover them without losing the integrity of the look. Taking the velvet all the way up to the neck while keeping the sheer panels on the cape would definitely keep this look within Alba’s sense of style while pushing her boundaries at the same time. With this look being so bold I might as well make the styling just as fantastical with a sleek side parted updo, very simply defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of red Aquazzura ‘Baba Plateau’ chunky heel platform sandals, and Chopard Red Carpet Collection white diamond and ruby arabesque cluster earrings. It all would have made sure that Alba would have had her best red carpet moments ever. I was really hoping that sense Ana De Armas is the new Bond girl and Chopard is the official jeweler of the new Bond film No Time To Die that we were going to see the label fly her out to walk the red carpets at the festival. I have really enjoyed getting to know Ana’s sense of style on the red carpet and I feel like had she made her Cannes Film Festival debut this year she would have done so in high style. My first wish for Ana to wear in Cannes was a big princess moment. So now I have something just as statement making but more streamlined with this black, blue, white, and pink watercolor print Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture strapless fit to flare mermaid gown. This look is super glamorous and definitely a statement look. I would usually either go for a big skirt or a long train for Ana, but when I saw this gown I was sold. I would imagine this gown with a sleek wavy updo, thick defined eyes, bright matte pink lips, a pair of black satin Aquazzura knot detail ankle strap sandals, and a statement Chopard Red Carpet Collection white diamond, pink sapphire, and ruby collar necklace would definitely have turned this gown with a simplistic silhouette into a MAJOR fashON moment for Ana to bring to life on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. Brazilian supermodel Izabel Goulart is a friend of Chopard and always jets to the French Rivera to promote the brand on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. She always knows how to bring sexy glamour to the red carpet, but instead of a standard super sexy model gown I decided I would go for something more ethereal for Izabel with this wish. I saw this emerald green Zuhair Murad Fall 2019 Couture draped gown which features an asymmetrical bodice, intricate beaded embellishments, a single caped sleeve, a sash detail off one shoulder, long train, and a thigh high split and it really spoke to me for Izabel. I really do think that this would have been the perfect glamour moment for her to have brought to life in Cannes. Now Izabel almost always has her perfect waves over her shoulders, but with this neckline I really would have wanted to see Izabel wear her hair up with this gown. Finishing the look with defined eyes, nude lips, a pair of emerald green satin Alexandre Vauthier crystal embellished simple ankle strap sandals, and a selection of Chopard Red Carpet Collection jewels including a pair of dazzling emerald and white diamond chunky drop earrings and a statement white diamond and emerald cocktail ring would have definitely made sure that this look was sensual yet elegant glamour defined from head to toe. Now in contrast from one model to another I went from demure sensuality for Izabel to uber sexy for Natasha Poly. I LOVE seeing Natasha on the red carpet. She knows how to ooze sex appeal on the red carpet and usually does so in your typical sexy labels including Atelier Versace, Hugo Boss, and Alexandre Vauthier. I was looking for something wow for her to wear in Cannes this year when I saw this white Maticevski Fall 2020 RTW ‘Lovelorn’ partially lined sequin embellished tulle gown which features a slim fit, draped silhouette, asymmetric neckline, gather accent, and aside slit. The gown is definitely super dazzling and super sexy. I just know that had Natasha been able to bring this gown to life in Cannes that it would have been a MAJOR moment. She would have ROCKED this look with a sleek ponytail, super smokey eyes, nude lips, a pair of white satin Christian Louboutin ‘Loubi Queen’ ankle strap sandals, and a selection of major de Grisogono jewels including a white diamond and emerald spiral collar necklace with asymmetrical multi-shaped drops and a statement white diamond and emerald cocktail ring.The final look for today is easily one of my favorite wishes from this years Cannes wishes. I was really looking forward to seeing Viola Davis make her Cannes Film Festival debut this year as a L’Oreal Paris ambassador. When it comes to the red carpet Viola always gives us something super glam on the red carpet. I’ve always wanted to see Viola wear Elie Saab Couture on the red carpet, but she hasn’t ever worn the label. I actually looked back at all my wishes for Viola since I started If I Was A Stylist and found 5 wishes with Elie Saab gowns and now this makes it 6. I have been in love with this gold liquid sequin one shoulder Elie Saab Spring 2019 Couture avant garde bow detail a-line gown with a sweeping train since it was first presented last January. Honestly I’m SHOCKED that this gown has made it through the tail end of last years awards season, Cannes, Venice, and all of the 2020 Awards season without being worn. The looks screams Hollywood glamour and I just know that Viola would have exuded glamour on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. A vintage inspired updo, smokey eyes, deep ruby red glossy lips, a gold metallic python Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ faceted clutch, gold Stuart Weitzman ‘Paulette’ braided knot metallic leather ankle strap d’orsay sandals, and statement Chopard Red Carpet Collection tsavorite, ruby and sapphire intricate detail drop earrings would have definitely made this look modern Hollywood glamour defined.
