Stars Embrace Gatsby Glamour at Cannes 2013
Kicking off one of the most prestigious film events of the year, Cannes Film Festival 2013 opened last night with the premiere of The Great Gatsby. The stars were out in their finery, and despite the torrents of rain some of our style favourites kept their cool and looked stunning.
The stars of the film of the moment looked just as dapper as you’d hope from three actors who’ve spent months decked out in the finest 20s threads. Carey Mulligan made a change from her usual updos with slicked-back ice blonde hair, while Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire both cut dashing figures in tuxedos and sleek side-partings.
While some of the stars on the red carpet played it safe, we knew we could count on Lana Del Rey to get her claws into the theme. Taking her usual retro style back a few decades, her marcel waves and faux bob fit the bill to perfection.
Taking her place on this year’s judging panel for the festival, Nicole Kidman has been seen out in Cannes a number of times in the past couple of days, looking stunning and fashion-forward each time. While her look from last night’s red carpet was a daring take on the latest catwalks, it was this look we loved. Combining two trends – texture blending and literal knotted ponytails – the style looks youthful, yet elegant on the starlet.
