Cannes 2019 Days 2, 3: Eugenia Kuzmina, Nadine Leopold and Alessandra Ambrosio among worst-dressed celebrities
On Wednesday, Hollywood A-listers walked the red carpet at the premiere of 'Les Miserables' and Thursday night saw the premiere of Elton John's biopic 'Rocketman'
The biggest names in the film industry have descended on the French Riviera for Cannes 2019.
The festival offers celebrities and stars countless opportunities to shine thanks to 11 days of red carpets, screenings, premieres, and photo calls where fashion takes centre stage.
On Wednesday, Hollywood A-listers walked the red carpet at the premiere of 'Les Miserables' and Thursday night saw the premiere of Elton John's biopic 'Rocketman'.
A few A-listers who tried to be outlandish with their outfits ended up with what can only be called a 'miserable' outcome.
Here are the 10 looks that failed to meet the mark:
1. Alessandra Ambrosio
The supermodel wore a fiery red gown by Julien Macdonald. The halter neck gown featured trails of flowy fabric that just about covered her in all the right places.
She opted for a bold red lip to match her rather revealing gown. She completed her look with a messy centre-parted low bun with strands of hair framing her face.
Although we appreciate the 'carnivalesque' interpretation, this red carpet needed something more.
Make way for the new dancing girl emoji, guys!
2. Nadine Leopold
Nadine Leopold graced us at the 'Les Miserable' premiere in her bare minimum. She wore a Dessange pale pink corset-like one piece and a white cloak with a few butterfly embellishments. We appreciate her for taking the fun route but she just ended up on confused alley.
3. Eugenia Kuzmina
Dressed in Ivan Bitton, Kuzmina wore a figure-hugging pink shimmery gown with flared triangular sleeves and more flares towards the bottom. The lower part of the skirt had black slanting designs and also a train. I would complement the cut of the gown but it just didn't work. There's only so much you can do wrong and she did it all. At least the make-up and jewelry matched.
4. Chris Lee
At the 'Les Miserables' premiere, Lee walked the Cannes red carpet in a stunning and slightly avant-garde creation by Balmain. The look was styled with dramatic purple hair and nude makeup. Although, based on her other looks, her outfits were either hit or miss.
What struck us more than the camp feather aspect were the weird rectangular boxes she had for sleeves. Was it a brave choice? It was. Did we like it? Not really.
We wonder if she had to walk sideways so as not to hit anyone with the sleeves.
5. Thassia Naves
Wearing a red and purple single sleeved shimmery/holographic Ralph and Russo gown, Naves looked good, but her outfit didn't.
It's hard to pinpoint what actually went wrong but, mostly, it's the colour and the pleats. At least, the gown had a cape and you can twirl in it.
6. Silvia Braz
You know when you're a child and your mom dresses you in pink-pouffy dresses? This Givenchy halterneck tulle gown reminded us of that.
The cape was fun Givenchy, it really was. What ruined the look for us was the choker over the halter neck. Why would you willingly put not one but two choking hazards around your neck?
Honestly, even Regina George wouldn't wear this pink on Wednesday.
7. Deepika Padukone
Someone clearly took 'Go big or go home' too seriously.
At the 'Rocketman' premiere, the Padukone opted for an off-white floor-length Peter Dundas' gown with a gigantic bow. Her eye make-up exuded drama with dark reverse winged eyeliner. She tied her hair in a sleek and neat high ponytail. The makeup and hair clashed with her outfit and the look was a whole lot of confusion. The sleeves were worse than the bow was. And the plunging neckline didn't complement the bow at all.
8. Gelila Bekele
Gelila Bekele wore a pink mermaid cut gown which had a black top and a pink tulle flower. This shimmery, twirly gown was just not the right option for the 'Rocketman' premiere. It was a cute try, though.
9. Nieves Alvarez
Alvarez wore a Victor Blanco pantsuit with a plunging neckline and a black skirt train. The look wasn't the worst thing we've seen, but the neckline was rather unflattering. She did pull off the rest of the outfit pretty well though.
10. Praya Lundberg
Wearing a red Versace gown with a plunging neckline, Lundberg looked really hot. What went wrong with her outfit were the random slits in the sides and the gold safety-pin embellishments. The outfit looked like it is falling apart.
