As the title suggests, I’ve shortlisted few very beautiful long gowns some very much known celebrities wore at Cannes 71st Film Festival that can come out really well at your upcoming ceremonies (improvise it or not). The designs are all it takes and these very pretty train gowns that were worn at Cannes 71st Film Festival has brightened up the minds of the audience and what could be so relieving than getting inspired by those ideas from those style icons we admire the most.
When it comes to trends, we all look up to our idol celebrities. They give us the vision of a particular style and how it can be pulled off well. As I said earlier, we do not have the kind of setup around that we can create our own outfits or get them designed every day and put them on. And, that’s how we just go ahead and grab some apparels from our nearby outlets that relate to what we see on the celebrities’ body. Trends are introduced like that, right?
And therefore, let’s begin with those Beautiful Long Gowns we can customize and be relied on!
Blake Lively’s Outfit
When we think about weddings in India, the color that strikes in our brains is “Red” and more than half of the population drag towards all the shades of red. Hence, the gown Blake Lively wore at Cannes is something we all can relate to by heart. Her beautiful crystal-encrusted bustier cascading into a full skirt with an oversized embroidered train is good to go for a dramatic occasion like we normally have in India. Look for a designer that can make something like this Versace piece for you. The color combination is common but presented in a totally unimaginable way.
Marica Pellegrinelli’s Outfit
I personally looooove this one! This beautiful long gown is about nothing but Sequins. The sequin embroiders in a most organized mess tickled my fancy. The shade is soothing and very appropriate for an engagement ceremony. Look for a designer that can inculcate the same in a beautiful long gown and hence, this one is a big thumbs up! The waist belt completes the outfit, and if you add some more jewelry to it, it’ll definitely be a success in any Indian occasions. You don’t have to look for the same kind of formation of the outfit though, the sequin work is what it’s all about. Sequins are very much in these days, so, take this idea from Alberta Ferretti and rock the stage.
Irina Starshenbaum’s Outfit
Some creativity is no harm. It’ll eventually pay you. The outfit actress “Irina Starshenbaum” wore for the Cannes festival is a beautiful one but needs some work if you want to flaunt in this costume at any of your Indian ceremonies as it’s giving more of a western touch. This is from Chanel’s Spring 2018 collection though, if you think of an elongated flare, it can make you go bananas. It’s a lovely outfit with embellishment in the front panel being so beautifully and precisely ruffled up. The petal-pink color looks soothing and pink lips to top it off finished up the blissful piece. This outfit gives a feel of million dollars and if you really feel the same, get one designed for you.
Alessandra Ambrosio’s Outfit
This one has become my dream gown. Really! I would loooooove to have this incredible piece. And the best part is, this highly-embellished beautiful long gown train can be easily designed as this kind of work is available in India in many of the outlets in the face of our traditional salwar-kameez suits. And this looks amazingly elegant in the form of a gown with so pretty long off-shoulder sleeves. This one makes me drool. Trust me guys, if you find this kind of gleaming embellished material, you’d definitely end up like a princess. The outfit, designed by Zuhair Murad, looks great with dazzling silver drop earrings Alessandra Ambrosio donned and locking her face off with a sophisticated ponytail was the best decision taken.
Sonam Kapoor’s Outfit
I’m bringing up this one at the last because this one is obvious and special!
Sonam Kapoor’s gracious presence at the Cannes is the thing you’d adore. Her embellished off-white lehnga-skirt has beautiful embroidery on it with embroidered net asymmetrical sleeves that’s designed by Ralph&Russo. How can this one be ignored when this lady made a mark keeping our culture in mind and it is proven with her braided hair embellished with a traditional parandi. This decorative braid accessory is a treat for the eyes and you must look for it before your wedding day arrives or just get it customized but make sure you keep it as a MUST on your list. The actress looked ethereal while she posed up a storm at the red carpet. We love you Sonam Kapoor and so your unique fashion sense.
Had I been not married already, I’d have got mine customized accordingly, but, when I look back, I feel it was not so bad! Simplicity and Elegance are the words I get dragged towards when I see my engagement gown! You too have a look and share your thoughts!
Tip: These beautiful long gowns were appealing to me, but I’d say and personally believe, ‘never hesitate to experiment with what clicks to your brain because as Sushmita Sen advised, when asked for a fashion tip, “Don’t follow fashion trends, do what you like doing, and let everybody say, Hawww kya pehna hai, Hawww kyu pehna hai, but you enjoy who you are!”, you should always follow your heart!’
