Cannes 2017: Rihanna, Julianne Moore, Winnie Harlow’s Black Glam At Chopard Dinner
The thing about the Festival de Cannes, or the Cannes Film Festival as many prefer to call it, is that it’s so much more than just a film fest. There are the premieres and then there are the after parties and then there are launch dinner and collaboration soirees and a lot, lot more. Simply put, it’s the place every fashion lover ought to be! And the Chopard dinner last night was definitely no exception. How could it be, when their guest of honour was the ultimate risker, Rihanna. The dinner was hosted in honour of the Rihanna x Chopard collection launch, a collaborative jewellery line. What’s more is that Rihanna wasn’t the only one to have made a style statement so stunning it would put runway models to shame. Joining her in her mission to create serious outfit envy were Julianne Moore and Winnie Harlow. Incidentally, black seemed to be the colour of the moment, but then, when is it not, right?
Here’s a closer look at the divas’ black glam…
Rihanna channels an old Hollywood vibe in her black Ralph & Russo gown that she teamed with a pair of strappy Guiseppe Zanotti heels. The actress added a nice dash of bling to her 1950s throwback attire by way of her Chopard jewellery (but, of course) including a pair of diamond earrings, a pretty necklace and a diamond-studded watch. She lugged on a black Roger Vivier clutch to complete her ensemble and finished off her look with a severe centre-parted bun, winged eyes, bold red lips and matching red manicured nails. She was styled by Mel Ottenberg.
After slaying the red carpet in an angelic white midi through the day, Julianne Moore decided to opt for a slightly more fun number… a maxi dress with a deep blue velvet bodice, tiered black skirt and embellished shoulder straps by Sonia Rykiel which her stylist Leslie Fremar picked out for her. The actress accessorised her dress with a pair of diamond earrings. A beautiful peachy pink smile, subtlely winged eyes and left down hair completed her look.
Winnie Harlow turned up the glam in a sexy black number that featured an interesting animal print wrap detail, strategic cutouts and thigh-high slit. Her sleek silhouette stood on a pair of strappy black heels and her brilliant diamond earrings added a dash of royalty to the ensemble. The Canadian supermodel rounded off her look with an updo, winged eyes and nude brown lips.
