Bridal Beauty Inspiration from the 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival
From princess gowns to edgy makeup, here are a few of our favorite red carpet looks from the 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival to inspire your bridal beauty.
One could easily mistaken Blake Lively for Cinderella in this stunning Vivienne Westwood ballgown and headband updo, but the actress joked her fashion was inspired by a Disney villainess. Either way, a pastel tiered dress like this one is the perfect way to channel your inner princess on your wedding day.
Wearing a nude colored Valentino gown, Kirsten Dunst made a memorable appearance at the closing ceremony. The soft embroidered accents and lace overlay channel boho chic, while the red lipstick is a classic statement that added a little vibrance.
Though a metallic dress like this one makes a sparkling statement on its own, Cindy Bruna made a daring move by adding bold accessories. Her blush colored Zuhair Murad gown dazzled onlookers with its shining accents while her statement jewelry complemented it rather than distracting from it.
Where to begin with this red carpet look? From the floral embroidered design to a dramatic train, Jourdan Dunn stunned everyone in this elaborate gown. The dress made quite the statement but the vibrant strappy heels peeking out from her hi-lo skirt are truly unique. She proved no jewelry is necessary with such an elegant design, as her tattoos made the perfect accessories (modern brides, take note).
Mismatched dresses for the bridal party are one thing, and when planned carefully, mismatched accessories within an outfit can make quite a unique statement too. Sarah Barzyk successfully pulled off this trend with accessories in different colors and textures to complement her floral print dress. The result? A gorgeous look to inspire springtime bridal beauty.
A strapless dress may not be your forte for a fall wedding. But a long sleeved dress with an embroidered bodice and sheath skirt like Eva Longoria’s Pamella Roland gown is gorgeous for weddings during the cooler seasons.
Don’t be afraid to bare a little skin on your wedding day. A long two piece gown like this one worn by Adele Exarchopoulos can make just as much of an elegant statement as a more modest wedding gown.
Want to add some subtle drama to your soft wedding style? Learn from Natasha Poly, who proved anyone can add a little edge to feminine style with just a little makeup. Seriously, cat eye makeup goals.
Wearing a neutral gown with a flowing skirt, Izabel Goulart turned heads as she made her way down the red carpet in this soft ensemble. Long loose waves with a light, flowy gown like hers are ideal for a more relaxed or elegant beach wedding.
Remember that time Sarah Jessica Parker rocked a black dress on her wedding day? Today it’s more common to see brides wear colorful or black wedding dresses like Mischa Barton’s red carpet gown. The tulle skirt and embroidered bodice are all sorts of flattering.
