The 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival and its famous red staircase have witnessed the return of a fashion with a protest and solidarity character, the consecration of the ‘naked dress’ – the controversial ‘naked effect’ dress – as the great fashion trend. 2024 and the magical resurgence of old Hollywood glories. 

Because it was in 1995 when Demi Moore walked the Cannes red carpet accompanied by her husband, Bruce Willis, who premiered The Fifth Element. An image that has taken 27 years to repeat and that corroborates her moment of splendor. For the occasion, Moore chose a red Armani haute couture dress with a strapless neckline and column cut. 

Carla Bruni is another woman who has reemerged like a phoenix after several seasons relegated to the background. Her appointment as Messika ambassador, added to her appearances on the front row of the main luxury brands, have restored her icon status. Proof of this, after her visit to Cannes dressed in a glamorous golden sequin dress, she took a plane that same day to participate in the Bvlgari High Jewelry show. 

From Bruni to Campbell, Naomi also did not miss her show in Cannes and did so with a vintage design with semi-transparencies from Chanel that she herself presented on the catwalk 28 years ago. 

The models Bella Hadid and Natasha Poly challenged the dress codes of the contest and dared to wear the controversial ‘naked dress’, the first from Saint Laurent and the second from Mugler.

Oscar winner Emma Stone stayed true to her style with an aubergine-colored dress with metallic threads from Louis Vuitton, her leading brand. So did Eva Longoria, who starred in a funny anecdote by hooking her dress with another colleague on the red carpet. Hunter Schafer was a breath of fresh air and exceeded any expectations by becoming a modern Cinderella in a reflective satin Armani Privé suit. 

From glitter to fighting spirit, Cate Blanchett took advantage of her time in Cannes to show her solidarity with Palestine. She did it through her wardrobe, with a tight black suit with a green tail and pale pink sides, the colors of the flag. Laura Blajman-Kadar, a survivor of the Hamas attack on the Supernova music festival, did the same in a yellow dress with faces of the hostages kidnapped by Hamas printed on the skirt and a black band with the message: “bring them home.”
