The 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival and its prestigious red staircase have witnessed the return of a fashion with a vindictive and supportive character, the consecration of the naked dress – the controversial nude effect dress – as the great trend of 2024 and of the magical revival of old Hollywood glories. Because it was in 1995 when Demi Moore walked the red carpet at Cannes accompanied by her husband, Bruce Willis, who was premiering The Fifth Element. An image that has taken 27 years for it to be repeated and that corroborates its moment of splendour. For the occasion, Moore chose a red gown with a plunging neckline and column cut by Armani haute couture. Carla Bruni is another woman who has re-emerged as a phoenix after several seasons relegated to the background. Her appointment as an ambassador for Messika, added to her appearances in the front row of the main luxury firms, have returned her to icon status. Proof of this, after her passage through Cannes dressed in a glamorous golden dress with sequins, is that she took a plane that same day to participate in the Bvlgari high jewelry show. From Bruni to Campbell, Naomi also didn’t miss her show in Cannes and went with a vintage design with semi-transparencies from Chanel that she presented on the catwalk 28 years ago. The models Bella Hadid and Natasha Poly defied the dress codes of the contest and dared with the controversial naked dress, the first by Saint Laurent, and the second by Mugler.

Oscar-winner Emma Stone stayed true to her style in an aubergine dress with metallic threads by Louis Vuitton, her signature signature. Also Eva Longoria, who starred in a funny anecdote when her dress got stuck with another colleague on the red carpet. Hunter Schafer was a breath of fresh air and surpassed all expectations transformed into a modern Cinderella in a reflective satin Armani Privé gown. From the sparkles to the fighting spirit, Cate Blanchett took advantage of the visit to Cannes to show her solidarity with Palestine. It was through the wardrobe, in a tight black dress with a green tail and sides in pale pink, 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 the faces of hostages kidnapped by Hamas printed on the skirt and a black band with the message: “Bring them home “.
