Wednesday marked the start of the 2016 Festival de Cannes—the Cannes Film Festival—and once again the cameras were out for celebrity-spotting.
Chompoo Araya A. Hargate, the well known Thai actress, attended the Café Society première and opening ceremony in a Ralph & Russo spring–summer 2016 blush pink silk organza strapless ball gown with pin-tucked organza ribbon ruffles cascading over a structured corolla train.
Bella Hadid wore a nude Roberto Cavalli gown complemented by de Grisogono High Jewellery necklace and Florinda bracelet. She wasn’t alone with choosing de Grisogono for jewellery: Entertainment Tonight’s Carly Steel opted for the Boule white diamond earrings, Vortice white gold bracelet, and Matassa white gold diamond ring to go with her Georges Hobeika gown. Elsa Zylberstein was in a tasteful, sheer bordeaux dress, complemented by de Grisogono’s Melody of Colours earrings and ring. Meanwhile, de Grisogono CEO Fawaz Gruosi had his pick from his company’s range, choosing his New Retro watch.
Also spotted were Mallika Sherawat in Georges Hobieka, Eva Longoria in Pamella Roland, Julianne Moore in Givenchy, Naomi Watts in Giuseppe Zanotti, Kirsten Dunst in Gucci, and Blake Lively showing her baby bump in Atelier Versace. Leïla Bekhti, Gong Li, Li Bing Bing, Naomi Watts, Doutzen Kroes, Julianne Moore and Susan Sarandon were also resplendent on the red carpet for the première.
This year, the Festival has a live feed in English and French on YouTube, which are featured at the end of this entry.
