Throwback, Who Wore What Jewels At Cannes 2016
The Cannes Film Festival hosts one of the most glamorous red carpet events in the movie circuit. Although the event happens once a year, the apparel and jewelry worn inspires trends all year through. What we had our eye on were the stunning jewelry flaunted. Ever since Elizabeth Taylor’s Bulgari jewels made their appearance in the 50’s, stars have been flashing their best, most valuable baubles. Here’s a throwback to the Cannes Film Festival 2016 and a look at who we found to be the top contenders, wearing the highest watts in the jewelry circuit.
Bollywood’s ultimate style icon rocked amazing garments from Ralph Lauren on 4 days of the Cannes Film Festival. But what really caught our eye was how she usually chooses to showcase Indian culture internationally. Created by Rimzim Dadu, the ombre blue and black sari was Indian in essence while maintaining a cutting edge design. Paired with handmade floral statement earrings that were joined together with chains all the way running along the nape of her neck designed by Suhani Pittie. Don’t miss the leveling of handful intricate Bacopa Midi Tattoo rings she’s wearing to offset the absence of arm and neck jewelry. You just get it right Rhea Kapoor!
Who hasn’t heard of Bella Hadid? The sister of supermodel Gigi Hadid is equally, if not more stunning. An embroidered nude dress with cut outs, intricate gold lace and bronze sequined detailing by none other than Roberto Cavalli. Her slender figure looked even sleeker when paired with a high ponytail, a statement Egyptian- style choker studded with diamonds. How can we miss the swanky fancy shaped solitaire diamonds by De Grisogono along with a diamond Florinda bracelet. Now that’s what we say is Bare Beauty!
Naomi’s strapless column Armani dress was covered in pretty metallic, mirror-like embellishments and the dress clung to her slender figure. She added a funky touch to her bare décolletage by donning a high-jewelry Bulgari necklace in white gold with diamonds and drop shaped amethyst, rubellites, aquamarines. Contrasting it with classic studs is something we liked, however her outfit seems to overpower the neckpiece! What say?
Opting for a slinky, tight, yellow gown, Ana was a spot of sunshine on the red carpet. The sleeveless dress showed off her petite frame and her plunging neckline showed off her cleavage with an equally stunning back with a long train that stretched for miles. We loved her Bulgari Divas’ Dream pendant cum necklace that was formed by bringing together little bell-like diamonds. It looked absolutely regal on a stationed chain dotted with sparkly studs and matching earrings. It’s not very often we see pendants carried off so beautifully. Do you agree?
Julianne has always had something special for Emeralds, and she flaunted a pair that has everyone green with envy. This time, Gemfield Emeralds were from Chopard’s Green Carpet collection and she paired them with a matching ring crafted in white gold. Notice the delicate diamond flower below which a large drop shaped emerald rests, finished off with diamond spikes below. Her dress, however does not have us raving. The sheer black Givenchy Couture dress had glittering gold and black sequined snakes in the front and the sleeves are unflattering, to say the least.
As sporty is Victoria’s one-piece black and white jumpsuit look, so has she mastered the art of dressing comfy but chic. Her strapless jumpsuit looked razor-sharp and she sported no other jewelry, saving it for the glittering fancy diamonds Chopard bracelet and striking 8.88 carat cushion-cut diamond ring. We love the way her layered bracelet looked dressy, thanks to the combination of a criss-cross round diamond pattern, over an array of marquise and baguette diamonds. Less is more, indeed!
While she’s no stranger to the red carpet, Aishwarya Rai stunned us all with her choice of purple lipstick. While her off shoulder dress was flattering for some, we can’t help but comment on the way the beaded and sequinned flowers look somewhat messy. With the statement lips, purple nails and detailed dress, we don’t question her minimal jewelry! Yes, a bold carnelian like gemstone ring.
Yet another eye catching piece for some, Mallika’s necklace is unusual indeed. However, we can’t help but feel that her fused floral piece or the beautiful flowy dress would have been better complemented by something more intricate. We cannot stop raving about the jewels by De Grisogono. One cannot go wrong when opting for their creations and that’s the look we loved.
All from De Grisogono, Mallika adorns exquisite Vortice white gold and white diamonds bracelet, with Allegra collection white gold and white diamonds ring with Anelli white gold and white diamonds earrings.Style Prer feels – We all make faux style statements at some point in life, including the red carpet celebrities and that’s completely alright.
