Bella Hadid Remains Cannes’s Queen of the Red Dress
Bella Hadid knows how to make an entrance! At today’s Cannes premiere of Pedro Almodovar’s Pain and Glory, Hadid ensured all eyes were on her, thanks to a bold red Roberto Cavalli gown. Asymmetrical with a jeweled neckline and strategic cutouts, the look popped against the backdrop of scarlet stairs and throngs of photographers. All she needed was a pair of stilettos and matching ruby earrings to complete the transformation from supermodel to goddess.
Hadid first made a splash at the Cannes Film Festival way back in 2016. The model arrived at the premiere of the Dardenne Brother’s drama La Fille Inconnue in daring red Alexandre Vauthier gown with a slit that went above the thigh. The headline-making look instantly became one of Hadid’s most memorable and earned her the honor of wearing the event’s sexiest outfit.
Since then Hadid has become a regular on the Riviera and turned crimson dresses into her festival signature. Though she switches up her hair, makeup, and jewelry, Hadid always goes for the drama crimson can provide. The vampy mood of today’s look was a 180 from the dreamy Dior gown she wore on the festival’s first night, but it played to her strengths to create a powerful red carpet moment.
