The revered Cannes Film Festival is one of the most extravagant of its kind, with entry limited to select members of the film industry. Dress is formal, and according to newspaper The Telegraph, it’s the second-largest media event in the world – encouraging attendees to dress to the nines. With luxury accessory company Chopard being the official partner of Cannes Film Festival, many of those on the red carpet chose to don the company’s latest collection to showcase their style, although, Chopard or not, it was hard to miss the jewellery at this event.
The dresses were exquisite and the suits were dashing, but it was the jewellery that stood out this year. Statement earrings seemed to be the accessory of choice and were seen all over the red carpet, but who came out on top? Here are our top five picks of celebrities who accessorised perfectly.
1. Cate Blanchett
These prawn-themed sparklers are what many believe was a nod to Cate’s Australian roots, and we absolutely love her kooky choice. In theory, they sound a little strange, but she managed to completely pull them off.
2. Kendall Jenner
Wearing all black and white, Kendall opted for spiky silver earrings to play up to the detail on her dress. In contrast to her hair, these earrings photographed beautifully and really suited her age.
3. Julianne Moore
Another celebrity who chose to pair her earrings with her outfit, Julianne Moore looked stunning in these beautiful crimson hoop earrings.
4. Salma Hayek
Selecting the right bracelet for her look led Salma Hayek to this python piece. Animal-themed jewellery seemed to be rather popular this year, and we love the risk of such an individual look.
5. Blake Lively
Simple glamour was the choice for this TV-actress-turned-Hollywood-starlet, and she looked incredible sporting this diamond necklace, which, according to Vogue, totaled in at a whopping 180 carats.
Take inspiration from the stars at the Cannes Film Festival and glam up your outfit with exciting new pieces. Create your own signature look by wearing jewellery that reflects your tastes, be they classic or a little offbeat.
