Bella Hadid grabbed plenty of attention on day eight of the Festival de Cannes, wearing a red Alexandre Vauthier custom silk wrap gown that left few of the 19-year-old’s curves to the imagination. With a deep neckline and a thigh-high slit, the gown ensured plenty of paparazzi snapped her at the premiÃ¨re of La fille inconnue (The Unknown Girl). She narrowly avoided a revealing “wardrobe malfunction” thanks to a red thongâ€”a moment captured by some paparazzi and camera operators. She complemented her Vauthier gown with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and jewellery by de Grisogono.
Also choosing to go with de Grisogono for jewellery on day eight were Shanghai-born model Ming Xi (å¥šå¤¢ç‘¤) in a sparkling silver Zuhair Murad holiday 2016 gown and Jourdan Dunn in a Ralph & Russo haute couture springâ€“summer 2016 white silk gazar ball gown with a hand-painted floral design and crystal and glass beading. Ana Beatriz Barros also chose Ralph & Russo, wearing an asymmetric teal chiffon gown with draped train, as did Chanel Iman that same evening at the Planet Finance Foundation Gala Dinner.
Irina Shayk, walking the red carpet for L’OrÃ©al Paris, went for a more subtle look up front with her black Miu Miu gownâ€”but round the back were diamante chains and extravagant feather detail on the hemsâ€”the perfect contrast. Make-up was again very natural, with L’OrÃ©al Paris’s make-up artists opting for lighter to medium shades in the Brow Artist Genius Kit and the RosÃ© shade in the Color Riche La Palette. To suit Shayk’s complexion, they chose Cushion Nude Magique foundation in Rosy Beige, and the Glam Bronze Cushion de Soleil. For the eyes, L’OrÃ©al Paris’s False Lash Sculpt in black and Super Liner Black ‘n’ Sculpt gave her movie-star looks. Dame Helen Mirren, Soo-Joo Park and Isabeli Fontana also wowed as L’OrÃ©al Paris ambassadors, and racing driver Lewis Hamilton joined them as the sole male for the brand.
Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley, like Shayk and Hadid, went for a backless gown, and chose a pleated, draped red design from Alexandre Vauthier. Liya Kebede chose an emerald green design from Haider Ackermann, while Alessandra Ambrosio wore Michael Kors.
