It has been an extremely long year with limited red carpet events, but now it seems like we are back in business. Fashion has always been a staple of awards ceremonies and prestigious events, making the arrival of celebrities and models alike worthwhile. The 74th Annual Cannes Film Festival marks one of the first of 2021 red carpet events with a large attendance.
With multiple days of screenings and red carpet events, there were plenty of looks to choose from and we are diving right in with a few of our favorites. From Gucci to Chanel, Balmain, Dior and more, it was almost hard to choose just a few. Although the Cannes Festival is still going and there are many awe-inspiring pieces to be seen, these are Couture’s picks of the red carpet.
Gorgeous in black, Jessica Chastain’s ginger hair and bold red lipstick add a romantic finish to her Dior custom dress. The evening gown features a netted strapless design with velvet scrolls for the final touch of movement.

Stunning in custom Etro, American model Taylor Hill, appeared on night one of the festival with confidence. The body contouring sheer lace gown features cutouts on the waist, a high neckline, and open back for a risque yet sophisticated end.
Infamous model, Bella Hadid, embraced the unique and open sternum look with a Fall 2021 Schiaparelli gown. The black dress formed to her body, leaving an open space on her chest that was covered by a gold branch statement making chain to remember. With sharp contour and a high bun, Hadid looked stunning.
