"The BFG" - Red Carpet Arrivals - The 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival

May 20, 2016

Ah, the glitz and glamour of red carpet events. Cue the exciting buzz about who’s wearing what and endless debates about the best dressed list. Other than celebrity buzz, The Cannes Film Festival is an annual event that previews new international films of all genres and and this year marks the 69th edition of this high-profile international event.

In line with Spring’s understated elegance and muted palettes, several are digging softer looks by incorporating neutral shades and skin-like colours (yes, we’re looking at you, Queen Bey). Yes, we’re all about the nude….colours.

Here are some celebs who are totally slayin’ in neutral tones at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Can we talk about how Blake Lively just effortlessly looks amazing in everything? (and even more surreally perfect with her baby bump!) Dressed in Atelier Versace, Blake was in a cut out nudish taupe dress that was entirely beaded with Swarovski crystals. Well done S, you totally stole the opening night. xoxo.

Eva Longoria shows how you can wear a long sleeved top and still look sexy and glamorous. Her two tone gown features a sheer beaded long sleeved with a stark white floor-length skirt that swept the floor — and the crowd away.  


Bella Hadid

Ok, what is it with the Hadid sisters? They are slowly taking over the world with cheekbones so sharp, they are knifelike. Her plunging nude dress featured gorgeous gold lace and intricate sequin details. Do all 19 year olds look like this nowadays?  

Aishwarya Rai

Despite the unnecessary flak she received for wearing a bold funky purple lip, Aishwarya Rai looked ethereal in her beaded Elie Saab gown. Straight out of a fairytale, we’d say. A spunky princess with a vampy lip and sultry make up.


Izabel Goulart

Ugh, supermodels look fab in everything – including this lingerie-like outfit that the rest of us normal human beings will look like we’ve just rolled straight out of bed in. Izabel Goulart totally nails it, though. Layered over her white bodice was a lovely blush-hued tie waist coat that trailed behind her as she sashayed down the carpet like a true Victoria’s Secret Angel.

Time to work those neutrals, guys. You don’t have to be in bold colours to be bold.
