After a brief hiatus in 2020, the glitzy red carpet at the Palais des Festivals was rolled out again to welcome the glamorous attendees of the Cannes Film Festival. While the Cannes Film Festival 2021 – which runs from July 6 to July 17 – is still ongoing, we’ve already been treated to a sumptuous feast of dazzling gowns and exquisite couture creations as celebrities pulled up one after the other at the prestigious venue. We’re looking at you, Bella Hadid

While the who’s who of international film put out an outstanding show of fashion, it was the supermodel who stole the show at the Cannes Film Festival 2021 – twice. Unless you’ve been living under an (internet-free) rock, we’re sure you’ve seen Hadid’s daring ‘Lung’ dress. The ultra-bold, internet-breaking dress, designed by Daniel Roseberry for Schiaparelli Fall 2021 couture, featured a neck so low that it sat right under the model’s bust. The exposed area was covered not by a bustier or a corset, but a phenomenal gold and rhinestone necklace crafted to resemble human lungs.

While the ‘Lung’ dress certainly broke the internet, that wasn’t the only time Hadid knocked the style game out of the park. Before she stepped out in the history-making Schiaparelli number, the supermodel dug through the archives for an equally alluring Jean Paul Gaultier number. Hadid attended the Annette premiere dressed in a dramatic black-and-white Jean Paul Gaultier dress from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2002 collection, originally modeled by Naomi Campbell. The magnificent dress featured a structured white bodice and halter neck straps, and a train made out of contrasting black tulle. 

While Hadid certainly upped the (style) ante, the Cannes red carpet was rife with outstanding ensembles including those sported by Carla BruniDiane KrugerTaylor Hill, and Katheryn Winnick, among others. 

As always, Arab designers like Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad, Ashi Studio, Rami Kadi, and Rami Al Ali were omnipresent on the Cannes red carpet. While Isabelli Fontana walked the carpet in a scintillating Rami Kadi dress, Noel Capri wore the impeccable creations of both Elie Saab and Ashi studio. Regional influencers like Karen Wazen (in a phenomenal number by Lebanese couturier Tony Ward) also made it to the Cannes Film Festival 2021.
