Goodbye LBD because this summer it is all about the LWD. With the 66th Cannes Film Festival still going strong, we’ve noticed many leading ladies opting to wear white on the red carpet. Jessica Chastain, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Biel have all been wearing white throughout the festival—the way the colour complements the beautiful French Riviera setting could of course, be a strong reason why it’s been so popular. Most recently, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Marion Cotillard caught our eye, with both working variations of the little white dress on the Cannes red carpet. It’s certainly made the LWD a must-have on our summer shopping list.
Supporter of the cause and one of the top models for The Ultimate Gold Collection fashion show, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley arrived at this year’s amfAR Gala looking glamorous in the most effortless way possible. Wearing Dior, the white crepe strapless dress consists of an off-white and pink-print silk and satin skirt. She accessorized with a pair of crisp white pointed-toe Christian Louboutin heels and completed her look with smoky eyes and loose, wavy hair.
Though she’s been wearing many pieces by Dior throughout the festival, earlier today Marion Cotillard opted to wear a white Alexander McQueen dress from the pre-Fall 2013 collection at the photo call for The Immigrant. Unlike Huntington-Whitely’s simple dress, Cotillard’s LWD had quite the embellishments. The soft floral overlay contrasted hardcore velvet and macramé floral detailing on both the shoulder and the base of the skirt. Cotillard finished off her look with her hair slicked back into a messy topknot and a pair of gold Christian Louboutin heels, adding some glitter to the whole outfit.
