Fashion At The Films – Cannes Film Festival 2017

Post by Louise Horsburgh On 18 May 2017

It is the most glamorous week of the year. Celebrating the 70th anniversary, The Cannes Film Festival kicked off yesterday and as excepted, the star-studded red carpet did not disappoint. Celebrating the best up-and-coming films of the year, the festival began with the screening of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ yesterday.

Gushing over gowns is definitely not new to us at Jane Davidson and personal stylist Jilly, as most of you may already know, is also a big Cannes fan! We will certainly be on dress watch this week and already we’ve got our favourite picks from Day 1:




Elle Fanning 

Elle Fanning is definitely the one to beat this week as she stunned the red carpet in this Vivenne Westwood Unicorn dress. The dreamy, strapless ballgown oozes femininity and elegance and the hand painted unicorns that run down the train, embraces the Vivenne Westwood quirky style we all know and love. Fanning was simplistic in finishing off her outfit with only two rings and hair pulled back into a high bun, letting the fantastic piece of art work she is wearing, speak for itself.

Trend Alert! – Blushing in pink and super sexy splits 

Model Bella Hedid, glowed in a plunging, strapless gown with a sexy thigh-high split by Alexandre Gauthier. Keeping her style soft and subtle, her vintage waves and fresh-faced make up create a glowing canvas for her to really shine in. Similarly, Uma Thurman stepped out in an off-the-shoulder pale pink gown with high leg split and Emily Ratajkowski turning heads in a sexy low back nude dress.

Moving away from simplistic designs and soft tones, Julianne Moore made us take notice in a fiery red, floor length gown with a feathery fish tail and beautifully crafted, embellished bodice. What a way to stand out from the crowd!

All this excitement has got us dreaming of what we would choose if we were amongst the glitz and the glam of Cannes! Our top pick? Shimmering down the red carpet in the stunning Bossa Gown by Talbot Runhoff would certainly do the trick! Available in store at Jane Davidson now.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled all week for the best gowns and beauty tips to grace the French Riviera!
