Although the 12-day-long red carpet event is now behind us, I wanted to highlight some of the big news and trend messages that showed up at the Cannes Film Festival.
Perhaps the most noteworthy remark is that Gucci introduced its couture collection called Gucci Première. 3 different gowns were worn by Salma Hayek throughout the festival while Kate Beckinsale and Naomi Watts were also spotted in Gucci Première. The new couture collection was said to be introduced out of customer demand, but don’t look for it on the couture runways anytime soon; its said that it’s more of a special order division, indeed for very special clients. Drapes, slits, one-shoulder and glam, Gucci Première is off to a great start.
One shoulder gowns and dresses were spotted amidst all the Cannes festivities. Grecian drapery and slits also accompany the one-shoulder trend nicely.
Pucci became an unexpected designer label on the red carpet this season – with no prints in sight. It appears as though designer Peter Dundas is repositioning the brand beyond Pucci prints and into red carpet worthy gowns and chic embellished mini dresses.
And what’s a red carpet event without the GLAMOR? While Cannes may not be the Oscars, it’s almost even better since we get 12 days and nights of gowns and dresses. Undoubtedly, there’s gotta be glam, shown this year in the form of metallic embellishment and sequins.
