Cannes Film Festival Day 2: Red Carpet Fashion from Marion Cotillard, Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria
FashionTV brings you coverage of the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival, which is known as the most recognized and most prestigious film festival in the world.
The mission of this festival is to promote, honor, and celebrate the movies and the development of cinema. The festival is of high-class with black-tie required for evening screenings and movies played to an audience that is invite-only.
The screenings take place at the Palais de Festivals et des Congres. A jury is chosen to give out awards for the best films of the festival, including the Palme D’Or or “Golden Palm” award given to the best film of the festival. At the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, the jury includes actors like Ewan MacGregor and Diane Kruger as well as fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, who hails as the first fashion designer to be part of this jury.
On the second day of Cannes, French actress Marion Cotillard is on hand for the promotion of Rust and Bone, a movie written and directed by Jacquard Audiard and starring Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts. In French, the movie is called De Rouille et D’os. For the photocall that day, Marion wears a pretty pink/peach Christian Dior dress. The dress has a gold waistband, textured body, and chiffon skirt from the Dior Spring 2012 collection. She finishes the look with yellow Versus pumps. Her makeup and hair were quite natural and fresh.
That night at the premiere for the movie, Eva Longoria and Freida Pinto, two actresses who are also ambassadors for L’Oreal makeup, the official brand of Cannes Film Festival, stun in their respective gowns. Eva Longoria wears a white Emilio Pucci dress with a low cleavage-baring neck and geometric insets. Pinto, who seems to be playing with risky choices and lots of color at Cannes this year, wore a bold architectural gown with Swarovski crystals and gold detailing from Atelier Versace.
But neither could take the glamour away from the film’s star, Marion Cotillard, who wowed in Dior Haute Couture that night, wearing a strapless gown with a black bustier (shaped with a sweetheart neckline) and a navy tulle skirt. The top and skirt were of two different colors and still went together perfectly. She also wore Chopard jewels and a jeweled headband for her bun, which once again made her look Old Hollywood in a glamorous Parisian way.
