Welcome to the Cannes Film Festival; a two-week red carpet extravaganza held on the shores of the French Riviera, showcasing some of the world’s most impressive jewellery and the beautiful people that wear them. Well, technically the focus is meant to be on ground-breaking films making their debut, but somehow our attention always seems to get diverted. This year’s festival, held last month, marked the 71st Annual event and the carpet sparkled with A-List stars in statement masterpieces from some of our favourite Houses, including; Bvlgari, Chopard and Messika Paris.
Sadly, for us mere mortals, the dream of spending two-weeks frolicking around the beaches of Cannes looking uber glamorous, remains exactly that. A dream. We can, however, adorn ourselves with the utterly chic jewellery from their brands of choice. For inspiration, we’ve asked our stylist to put together an edit of those most fabulously frosted at the Cannes Film Festival, from the glamorous supermodel Bella Hadid to the iconic actress Cate Blanchett. Enjoy!
No earrings necessary with a necklace this good. Super model Georgia Fowler gives a master class in accessorising, letting the spectacular ‘Sea King Necklace’ do the talking a-top an asymmetrical neckline. Poseidon Perfection.
Bella Hadid offered a timely reminder of why she is one of the most sought-after supermodels in the world (not that we needed one!), adorning herself with this sublime diamond necklace from Bvlgari’s Giardini High Jewellery collection paired with a dazzling Bvlgari Serpenti watch. Simple yet scintillating.
The Victoria’s Secret model looked like she’d stepped right out of a glamorous scene from the 1950’s in a gorgeous blush Alberta Feretti gown. Completing her movie star looks was a fabulous diamond necklace and bracelet duo from Chopard. Very angelic indeed!
A dream in cloud-like tulle, Jessica Jung brought the romance to the Cannes carpet. In the strapless and feminine dress the Shards of Mirror suite was left to shine; with the singer donning not just the necklace but the Earrings, Bracelet and Ring too. Major Carat crush!
Every bit the confident woman, both on and off screen, British actress Emilia Clarke looked amazing in distinctive, sun-shaped earrings from the Bvlgari Festa dell’Infanzia high-jewellery collection. Set with diamonds and other precious stones, the only thing that sparkled brighter was her smile. Awww.
After taking the top spot for World’s Highest-Paid Model on the Forbes top-earning models list, instagram mega-star Kendall Jenner is no stranger to getting dressed up to go to the movies. Here she shows why she’s a style inspiration to millions, with a breathtaking pair of diamond and emerald earrings from Chopard’s Red Carpet collection. And don’t even get us started on that sheer green dress she wore to the Chopard party. Wow!
VINCENT CASSEL AND TINA KUNAKEY
Talk about a power couple; Vincent Cassel and his Italian bombshell girlfriend show how to do couple’s dressing right. Model Tina Kunakey wowed in the Madeline earrings – diamond Angular triangles making a statement with a bold metallic dress while Vincent’s titanium ‘Move’ bangle perfectly complemented his dapper velvet tux. Twice as nice.
As president of the 71st Annual Cannes Film Festival Jury, all eyes were on Cate Blanchett when she walked the red carpet, and she did not disappoint. The Australian actress dazzled in a pair of titanium earrings from Chopard’s Red Carpet Collection set with yellow sapphires (42.02 carats), tsavorites (11.26 carats), garnets (24.60 carats). On her hand she wore an 18k rose gold ring from the Temptations Collection, set with a huge 55.52-carat oval shaped tanzanite, spessartine garnets (10.87 carats), and orange sapphires and blue sapphires. She’s the boss for a reason.
Bringing a new meaning to ‘dripping in diamonds’, Barbara Palvin went for the ‘Whirl’ collection. 3 tiers of diamonds lay at her neck while the double ring and ear cuff brought some edge to the 24-year old model’s look. Divine in diamonds at any age.
