CANNES YOU HANDLE IT?

The dreamiest and most bridal-worthy ensembles straight from the Cote d’Azur

 Evoking good-old glamour and elegance, the Cannes Film Festival’s red carpet spectacle always serves as a refreshing palate cleanser after the drama and heavy guises of the Met Gala. This year, of course, was no different.

What caught our attention, however, were all the stunning, romantic looks that are worthy of saying “I do” in — lace accented-white dresses, tiered ball skirts, and the sweetest of pastel gowns paired with the most glamorous diamond high jewellery. From Priyanka Chopra and Bella Hadid’s ethereal looks, to Elle Fanning and Elsa Hosk’s pastel ensembles, the Cannes red carpet seemed to have given us a hint of the latest and most fabulous trends in bridal fashion. And we couldn’t be more excited about it.

Indian superstar Priyanka Chopra wore an actual bridal gown from Georges Hobeika’s Spring 2020 Bridal Collection, which she aptly paired with Chopard jewellery

With her new husband by her side, Priyanka Chopra was a vision of happiness at the Les Plus Belles Annees d’une Vie premiere. She wore an actual bridal gown, complete with a voluminous, tiered skirt from Georges Hobeika’ Spring 2020 Bridal Collection. The Indian superstar aptly paired the dreamy gown with a necklace and earrings set, featuring 61ct diamonds, from Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie collection.

Toning down the risqué factor this year after a series of overly sexy looks last year, supermodel Bella Hadid surprised the crowd in a modest, bridal-perfect look at the premiere of Rocketman. The supermodel complemented the sheer, tiered gown from Dior with Bvlgari High Jewellery earrings and ring and a Serpenti bracelet.

 Leonardo Dicaprio’s new girlfriend, Argentinian model Camila Morrone, made a stunning appearance at the premiere of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, wearing a Miu Miu chiffon gown featuring marabou feathers. But the star of her ensemble was a High Jewellery necklace with a 1.54ct round diamond and 105 round diamonds from Bvlgari.

 For Spanish model and TV presenter Nieves Alvarez, there was only one man to turn to for her Cannes opening ceremony look — Elie Saab. She finished off the sparkly number with Serpenti bracelet, High Jewellery Parentesi ring, and High Jewellery rings, all from Bvlgari.

Pretty in pastel, Swedish model Elsa Hosk looked every inch a Barbie princess in an Etro gown during the screening of A Hidden Life. She opted for a stunning pair of unique High Jewellery earrings in pink gold set with white diamonds, brown diamonds, and rubies, as well as High Jewellery diamond bracelet, both from De Grisogono.

Another statuesque model, Barbara Meier, also turned heads at Cannes in De Grisogono jewellery. At the screening of The Dead Don’t Die, the German fashion model-slash-actress paired her Ziad Nakad sparkly beige gown with De Grisogono Vortice earrings and Chiocciolina ring.

For Iraqi influencer Rania Fawaz, only De Grisogono’s set of necklace, earrings and ring in white gold studded with white diamonds can do justice to her Julea Domani by Zeena Zaki gown. The Gypsy diamond set sparkled brighter against the romantic pale yellow, tiered gown.

As the official partner to the festival, Chopard was front and centre at Cannes, dressing some of the most glamorous celebrities on the red carpet.

The young actress paired her floral dress with a diamond bracelet, a diamond ring, and two yellow diamond rings, all from Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie Collection.

Wearing a Givenchy Haute Couture number, Chinese actress and Godmother of the Trophée Chopard 2019 Zhang Ziyi was all glamour and class at the La Belle Epoque premiere. To make the silver gown all the more striking, she accessorised it with a pair of diamond earrings and ring in 18K white Fairmined gold, both from Chopard’s Garden of Kalahari Collection.

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut looked every inch a bridal princess in a pink and lavender bejewelled gown by Filipino fashion designer Michael Cinco. The 32 year-old actress also opted for Chopard high jewellery to complete her look.

 Donning one of Messika Paris’ most breathtaking high jewellery piece — the North Wind diamond necklace from the Once Upon A Time High Jewellery collection — Dilan Çiçek Deniz was easily one of the best dressed at the festival. The Turkish actress looked elegant in a baby blue Hakan Yildirim Haute Couture gown. She capped off her look with a pair of Desert Bloom earrings, a Mata Hari bracelet, and diamond rings, all from Messika Paris.

Equally stunning in Messika was Brazilian actress Isis Valverde, wearing the Beloved Feather ear cuff, also from the Once Upon A Time High Jewellery collection, and the Snake Dance ring from the Born to Be Wild collection. Her white, floor-length Azzaro dress was the perfect backdrop to the stunning jewellery.

Korean model Soo Joo Park paired her avant-garde look with sculptural diamond jewellery, all from Chanel

 Meanwhile, Toni Garrn also wowed the crowd in Messika high jewellery. Wearing an Ulyana Sergeenko Couture white gown at the premiere of Hidden Life, the German supermodel capped her bridal-inspired ensemble with Desert Bloom High Jewelry necklace, Desert Bloom rings, and Diamond Catcher earrings, from Messika’s Born To Be Wild collection.

 Always one to stand out and not follow trends, Soo Joo Park favoured a sequined top and pants from Chanel at the premiere of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The Korean-American model paired the avant-garde look with sculptural diamond jewellery, also from Chanel.

Also at the same premiere of the same Quentin Tarantino movie, Margot Robbie opted for a white muslin dress from Chanel Spring-Summer 2019 Haute Couture collection. The leading actress of the film finished off her minimalist look with Chanel Fine Jewellery.

Stepping out in Chanel’s fully embroidered pink bustier dress, also from its Spring-Summer 2019 Haute Couture collection, Elodie Bouchez looked all dreamy at the Oh Mercy! premiere. The French actress opted for Chanel Fine Jewellery to cap her look, of course.
