After the Met Gala comes Cannes. The film festival, which is in its 72nd year, never fails to attract the biggest names in Hollywood to the French Riviera, and the first night kicked things off in style as the stars assembled to celebrate international offerings in film over the next 10 days.
First up, Chloë Sevigny and Tilda Swinton walked the red carpet for the premiere of The Dead Don’t Die. Swinton, never one to opt for the “safe” ensemble, wore a custom Haider Ackermann silver sequinned column dress. The actor paired the armour-like look, which was inspired by the brand’s autumn/winter 2019 collection, with nude heels.
Sevigny – who, like Swinton refuses to follow the crowd – opted for a custom corseted Mugler gown, completing the outfit with long black gloves that made for a modern take on an old Hollywood look. Earlier in the day, she appeared in a cool pinstriped two-piece by the brand, too. Other celebrities – including Selena Gomez and Bill Murray – also took to the red carpet to showcase their new horror film which is due to hit UK cinemas on July 12.
Julianne Moore, meanwhile, fused understated elegance with a dose of glamour in Cannes. The actor, who appears in After The Wedding with Michelle Williams, wore an emerald green Christian Dior Haute Couture gown. Paired with Chopard jewels, the shoulder-skimming look served as a bold colour choice compared with other outfits showcased throughout the evening. One thing’s clear: the glamour of Cannes has arrived.
