We already wrote about Dame Helen Mirren’s gorgeous blue look at the Cannes Film Festival this week. But the red carpet for the display of aristo drama Joan of Barry also had a small generous edge, originating from Monaco…
At the festive opening of the annual Cannes Film Festival was of course the crème de la crème present from Hollywood. Other prominent figures from showbiz could not be missed, and the jet-set level was helped even further by the presence of some members of the Monegasque royal family. The daughter and daughter-in-law of Princess Caroline, Charlotte Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo, beamed at the photographers present.
As was to be expected, both ladies made their appearance in a generous portion of designer glam. As a Chanel ambassador, Charlotte naturally made her appearance in a dress from the French fashion house, which connoisseurs have managed to identify as a copy from the fall collection of 2020. Her bag, heels and even jewelery also came from the legendary label.
Sister-in-law Beatrice Borromeo chose another legendary French fashion house: Dior. Just like Charlotte for Chanel, Beatrice is an ambassador for the luxury fashion house. We saw the lace dress she wore with a particularly daring, low-cut neckline on the catwalk of the design house’s AW22 collection. Her heels are also from Dior.
Concerning the battle of the brands between the two label ambassadors, we really have to award the win to Beatrice, if only for this fairytale moment on the steps of Cannes:
The kick-off of all film screenings this year was for the screening of Joan of Barry, with which actor Johnny Depp makes his return to the silver screen definitive. This film also has a good dose of royal fashion and aristocratic splendor with a historical edge.
Joan of Barry revolves around Madame du Barry, a bourgeois girl who manages to conquer the heart of the French king Louis XV. Tres scandaleux, Naturally.
