The Cannes Film Festival is one of the most glamorous events in the world, and it’s also one of the most high profile thanks to its surrounding media frenzy. From the moment that the celebrities arrive in Cannes, they can expect to be photographed by the eagerly awaiting paparazzi, and so, they usually arrive expectedly immaculately groomed. So, it did come as a little bit of a surprise when the usually flawless supermodel Lily Cole was pictured arriving in Cannes wearing a pair of laid back denim shorts, a yellow jumper, and a pair of black shoes which she’d teamed with grey ankle socks.
Confession of a Child of the Century Photocall
Lily is mainly at Cannes to promote the film Confession of a Child of the Century, and although work duties call, she’s still had time to celebrate her 23rd birthday whilst at the festival. Although she may have arrived looking a little less glamorous than usual, her following Cannes outfits certainly didn’t fail to impress! For instance, at the movie's official photocall with Pete Doherty (below right), Lily opted for a pretty lace jacket and matching dress, which featured contrasting mint green underlining, and she finished off the outfit with a pair of gold flat sandals and her loosely tousled hair tied back in a pony tail.
Lily's Birthday Look
It's surprising that Lily looked so fresh faced and perfect at the movie's photocall, as the night before she attended the Vanity Fair and Gucci party, where she also celebrated her birthday (below left). Every birthday girl needs to outdress the rest and Lily did just that in a fancy mullet dress. She wore the light blue ruched front dress with a pair of flat golden sandals, blue nail varnish, and some striking red lipstick.
At her Film's Premiere
One of her most important tasks whilst at Cannes was to attend her film's premiere, where Lily looked effortlessly flawless. The royal blue of her crinkled floor length dress complemented the tones of her skin and hair, and thankfully, although her dress featured a daring split, it was more Kate Middleton than Angelina Jolie, as she carefully kept her long legs tucked well away. She upped the glamour with a fur shrug (faux fur we hope!) and a gorgeous pair of diamond earrings.
