Among the festival’s fashionable stars is Marion Cotillard, who is one of the first celebs to be spotted in a straight-off-the-Spring 2013-runways style, which she modeled at the Rust and Bone premiere.
No ordinary LBD, Cotillard’s black Dior shift featured an architectural high-low hemline with pleating on back. Printed pointy-toed Dior pumps added edge to her all-black ensemble.
The French actress was two for two in the style department over the weekend, donning another chic ensemble to a press conference for her film.
With another pared-down look in a black-and-white printed Azzaro dress, the star relied on of-the-moment details to amp up her ladylike look. Blurry Rorschach-like blotches balanced the dress’ feminine silhouette and oversized bow, while cut-outs kept her Christian Louboutin Mary Janes from looking too sweet.
At the Ginger & Rosa premiere, Elle Fanning wore a long floral dress by Rochas. The up-and-coming style star styled the strapless ball gown to fit the vintage romance that’s becoming her signature style, wearing a lace choker around her neck and balancing a muted mint green sweater on her shoulders.
Though the 14-year-old has been criticized for wearing outfits that look to old for her age (and petite frame), in this case, Fanning manages to pull off the Victorian-librarian look by adding a touch of youthful irony.
Sure, Fanning may have covered her shoulders with a cardigan, but the longer boyfriend style with ivory piping was more reminiscent of a prep school uniform than a stuffy librarian’s sweater, offering just the right dose of unexpected flair.
