Writing Culture (EFE).- Halfway through the Cannes Film Festival, the red carpet, more familiar than ever, did not disappoint, with the presence of a serene Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman’s choice of a legendary vintage Dior dress from 1949 , the daring design of Dua Lipa or the beauty of Sara Sampaio.
Natalie Portman went to Cannes to present her film “May December” with Julianne Moore. As always, her choice did not go unnoticed, as she opted for a copy of a legendary 1949 Dior vintage gown, an off-white strapless with a blue-trimmed petal skirt.
A rug in which Cate Blanchett again bet on Louis Vuitton, the first night, with a black and white design with pockets of silver sequins, made from fabric scraps that were in the workshop; her while she opted for a fuller design on Saturday night, also in a sleek black and white.
The week began with a very family runway, where actress Uma Thurman wore a pale pink Dior satin gown, which she covered with a gorgeous red coat, accompanied by her son Levon Hawke in a midnight blue tuxedo.
His father Ethan Hawke was also at the festival, who posed the next day, where he led the presentation of Pedro Almodóvar’s short film, “Strange way of life”.
During the presentation, the aesthetics of Hawke’s companions – in the absence of Pedro Pascal, who was filming – the Portuguese George Steane, José Condessa, Jason Fernández and Manu Ríos, who opted for various proposals of Yves Saint Laurent.
Michael Douglas attended to receive the Palme d’Or of Honor at the Cannes Film Festival, in tribute to his 55-year career, accompanied by his wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, who chose a red chiffon dress with a deep neckline by Elie Saab, and with her daughter Carys, who wore a creation with an open back and transparencies.
Friends and sisters-in-law, Carlota Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo attended the opening gala of the festival separately. The daughter of Carolina de Monaco wore a navy blue dress with an embroidered flower bolero from Chanel; while Beatrice Borromeo, wife of her little brother, Pierre, wore a black and beige dress with a floral guipure print by Dior, a firm for which she is an ambassador.
DiCaprio, escorted by Scorsese and Robert de Niro
A family, in this film case, is the one made up of Martin Scorsese, Robert de Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio who presented their latest film “Killers of the Flower Moon” on Saturday night.
Harrison Ford felt supported by all his colleagues before the unexpected Palme d’Or of honor that the festival gave him by surprise before the start of the screening of “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate”, the last of the archaeologist’s saga, at the who came with his wife Calista Flockhart in an elegant black tulle dress, one of the few ladies who allowed jewelry not to overshadow her dress.
Age was never an impediment to beauty and elegance, as Catherine Deneuve and Helen Mirren demonstrated.
Deneuve wore a navy blue silk Louis Vuitton design with draped sleeve detail and crystal embroidery at the neckline. Helen Mirren opted for the 18th century “look” in blue, like her hair, and with a fan included.
A super-sexy Dua Lipa appeared in an asymmetrical black dress with a very long side slit on the skirt. The singer Carla Bruni was not far behind, who opted for an elegant gray with a sequined body and a silk miniskirt with a train that came out from her waist, which allowed her to show off her slender legs.
Despite the successes, the red carpet of La Croissette also had presences that it is better to forget, such as that of the actress Alice Abdelaziz, who wore a beaded bodysuit with a voluminous coat.
Volume is what was left over from the red design that formed two huge roses on the sides of the French singer and model Yseult Onguenet.
The Indian actress Aishwarya Rai was one of those who opted for black, combined with metallic silver with a super-generous hood.
The German model Caro Daur dared with a Schiaparelli design, a trompe l’oeil in blue, with the silhouette of a nude female body in gold.
Impossible to forget the jungle dress with two lurking tigers by the Chinese actress and singer Fan Bingbing, which left no one indifferent.
