While the actors and actresses who frequent the Cannes Film Festival always have dramatic outfits for the red carpet, it is the models who always seem to have some of the most scintillating dresses. This year found many a supermodel on the red carpet baring it all from Brazilian Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio to Bella Hadid. These are the top looks for the models prancing around Cannes this week.
Bella Hadid: Seeing Red
Hadid often goes for daring looks that favor a good leg slit like Angelina Jolie circa the 2012 Oscars and Cannes was no difference. She opted for a fire engine red Roberto Cavalli gown as she walked the red carpet for the premiere of the film Pain And Glory. And no, she is not starring in it but she sure dressed as if she was.
Alessandra Ambrosio: Another Red Showstopper
It seems like red was the color of choice for these models. Ambrosio also donned a red slinky number for the premiere of another remake of Les Misérables. The dress differed from Hadid’s as it was twisted and draped all around her and featured an ethereal chiffon train.
Izabel Goulart: Barely There
While her dress was not in keeping with the red color theme it did appear to follow the same barely-there quality of the other dresses. When you are a Victoria’s Secret model you definitely have the whole legs for days look needed to pull off these dresses. This shiny black number which is a series of triangles sewn together to cover all of the important bits definitely leaves nothing to the imagination. She wore this for one of the evening events although how she managed to dance in this remains unclear.
Sara Sampaio: All That Glitters
This Portuguese model decided to go a completely different route than her fellows and don a sparkling silver jumpsuit with a train. It definitely seems to be a couture version of what Elvis may have worn in his yesteryears but she pulls it off with aplomb. It is refreshing to see something that strays away from the skin-baring gowns favored by some of the other models and makes it appear that she has a touch of individuality.
Cannes still has another week to go so the real fashion pieces have yet to come. Closing night will be the time for everyone to shine and we cannot wait to see who turns up in something lovely or alternatively, atrocious. Stay tuned!
