Cannes Film Festival Fashion

The Cannes Film Festival has always seemed like one of the most glamorous Hollywood events to me.  I think that’s mainly due to its location in the French Riviera (I blame Samantha Brown for my obsession with the Côte d’Azur), but I’ll give some credit to the celebrities and their films.  Actually, scratch that.  I don’t know anything about the films shown at Cannes, so I guess it’s just the Mediterranean seaside location and the outfits.  The somewhat funny thing about celebrity fashion at the Cannes Film Festival is that I don’t actually know who any of the celebrities are.  This year’s festival marked the 70th anniversary and ran from May 17-28.  I’ve browsed various galleries on Elle, Vogue, etc., and I may recognize two or three actors, but for the most part I have no idea who these people are or what they’re known for.  No matter!  I can still admire their garb.  And that’s what I’ve done today!

Let me state for the record that I like to take *inspiration* from red carpet fashion.  I have no red carpet events on my calendar (though I am available should someone invite me) and thus have no need for a ballgown.  However, I do like to morph these outfits into real life.  These days real life for me means working an 8-5 office job, occasional date nights/dinner with friends, and cookouts.   With that in mind, I’ve put together the below looks inspired by Cannes Film Festival fashion.  I hope you enjoy!

21 Black and Gold Dresses Under $150

Jaime King wears Maison Schiaparelli to Rouge One premiere

Jaime King recently wore this shimmering black and gold dress to the Rogue One movie premiere (RIP Carrie Fisher) in Hollywood.  Aside from the butterfly on the bust (seriously, WTF), it’s a beautiful gown from Maison Schiaparelli.  I love how the gold fades into the black.  Or does the black fade into the gold?  Either way, I thought it a perfectly glam dress for a New Year’s Eve party.

You probably already have your NYE outfit picked out–even if it’s just your favorite pair of pajamas (high five, you party animal!).  But if you’ve made last minute plans like, ahem, me, here is a collection of black and gold dresses that might give you a little inspiration.  Black and gold dresses are appropriate for any party, mixer, or for tucking away in your closet “just in case” you need a fancy dress on short notice.  Also?  They’re all under $150.21 black and gold cocktail dresses under $150
