The Cannes Film Festival is an annual event held in France that previews new films from around the globe. Not only do attendees get to see the latest films, but they also get to show off gowns designed by Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana.
Dolce & Gabbana are known for their bold designs with 3-D flowers and glittering crystals. Famous actresses wore these brilliant creations, including the following.
Former fashion model and actress Sharon Stone attended the festival in her favorite gowns. The star of the movie Basic Instinct attended three films and modeled different dresses at each one.
1. A Majolica-Print Gown
Stone attended the film Forever Young wearing a Dolce & Gabbana Majolica-print gown with a removable outer skirt and train that turned her dress into two distinct looks. She wore deep blue spike heels with the gown. The dress had a sweetheart neckline and spaghetti straps.
2. A Green Leopard-Print Strapless Gown
The next day, while attending the film Crimes of the Future, she wore a green, strapless gown with a deep thigh split. The figure-hugging dress was a custom-made, emerald green velvet leopard print embellished with Swarovski crystals. Matching green heels completed the look.
3. A Curve-Hugging Red Gown
When attending the screening of Elvis, she wore a custom red Dolce & Gabbana gown that once again hugged her curves. The dress was embellished with Swarovski crystals and had a sweetheart neckline. She carried a matching red clutch.
Dame Helen Mirren
Dame Helen Mirren is an award-winning actress, having won both an Academy Award and a British Academy Film Award for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in The Queen. While attending the screening of Mother and Son, Mirren danced down the red carpet wearing a silver Dolce & Gabbana gown embellished with metallic tinsel and sequins.
The dress also had a Swarovski crystal-embellished collar. She wore hair extensions in a half ponytail and drop earrings to complete the effect.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
As an Indian actress and the winner of the Miss World 1994 pageant, Aishwarya Rai is one of the most influential actresses in her country. She attended the showing of Top Gun: Maverick wearing a black Dolce & Gabbana silk gown. Her dress had a full skirt while a virtual bouquet of colorful fabric roses burst from her voluminous skirt and shoulder.
She wore Alta Gioielleria Jewelry in white and yellow gold to complete the look. The earrings had tourmalines and diamonds as well as blue sapphires. She also wore a matching ring.
Model Poppy Delevingne attended the showing of Three Thousand Years of Longing while wearing a stunning silver form-fitting gown. The floor-length, backless dress was held in place with a silver collar and was also embellished with Swarovski crystals. A thigh-high slit, along with silver heels, showed off her long legs.
Those who attended the Cannes Film Festival wore bold and elegant clothing. Dolce & Gabbana added color and elegance to the event. The actresses who wore those gowns carried them with grace and dramatic flair.
