Cannes Film Festival 2019 Day 1
The Best Gowns Cannes Film Festival 2019
The opening ceremony did not disappoint in terms of gowns, this film festival out do’s all others (including the Oscars) with the glamour and pure sophistication. this is the awards ceremony to follow for trend setting elegance.
we have broken down our favorite garments as much as possible below
How could we not include Jessica Jung, in her frozen-esq twinkling gown, that looked like it weighed a fair amount.
The heavily sequined gown had elements of cut glass, which is why this was so heavy. The bodice had heavy internal structuring to give it it’s shape and heavily beading, the layered circled hem was feathered. and had a heavy tulle underskirt which does give it that floating light look, however a crinoline, would have made it much easier to move in.
Elle Fanning in a pale pink silk Charmeuse wrap gown (by Gucci) with sequin and embroidered floral detailing at the centre front, and lace edge pipping throughout.
The styling is from the 1940’s which in turn was modern take on the Grecian look and the double layered front is right out of a film Noir. the bias cut adds to the flow. the ruched waist stay appears to hold the bodice closed, and shoulder pad to give the sleeves the puff look.
Tilda Swinton should be on every best dressed list, if she dresses herself r is styled we don’t know but is never dull.
We can only call this a chain mail column dress, where, there was absolutely no chain mail, but two different sequins over a grey dress in a tie fashion at the top corner, simple and stylish.
Araya A Harget in a purple Ralph and Ruso ombre tulle triple layered gown, with floral appliques on the hem (this is what sealed it)
The bodice was a silver glitter covered corset with a layer of tulle/netting. the skirt extravaganza is reminiscent of the Giambattista Valli tulle gowns, with additional structure/netting. You can clearly see all the work that’s gone into the layers of the rose appliques, and would have worked on any gown, but may have been dwarfed by all the additional punches this dress was trying to make.
Marina Fois in Louis Vuitton heavily embrodiered dress.
the famous Chrysler Building bas-relief was picked out in geometric metallic embroidery on a zip-front jacket capelet wings.
Caroline de Maigret in Chanel Metiers de Art.
The Chanel Metiers de Art is a show, honoring the fine craftsmanship that its artisan partners and this year was Egyptian inspired, column dress with fish tail hem and raglan sleeves both adorned with strips of gold leather and fringed with microscopic golden beads. and came most importantly… with pockets.
Caroline’s hair is obscuring the fine beading so we’ve added the show image where the model’s hair was in braids and displaying all the work of this special gown

Angele wearing Chanel Haute Couture with lac skirt panels and atching halter trim and pipping
