Dior Haute Couture Gown and Jewellery

Moments before hitting the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival 2015 for the “Mad Max: Fury Road” premiere as a guest of Dior were spent here, in their blissfully beautiful suite at the Hotel Majestic.

There was a little confusion leading up to my fittings, so I ended up choosing this classic cream Dior Haute Couture gown. I was a little hesitant about wearing white on the red carpet, especially as I have a wedding to plan! But if anything this dress has just set the standards incredibly high for the big day – the fit, the fabrication, the way it fell around my body, it’s not easy to imagine how I can top a dress like this when you’ve already worn Dior Couture in your lifetime.

As my dress was quite simple and ethereal we wanted to add an element of edge. We opted for a dark wine lip by Dior with a thicker than usual and exaggerated winged eyeliner. I slicked my hair back into a low bun to let the pearl accessories speak for themselves. I think the manicure was my favourite beauty element –  a dark plum with a delicate white French tip to pop against the creaminess of the dress. It’s always nice to experiment with your beauty look and I felt like having a fresh change from my usual half moon shellac in fire engine red.

Now it was time to hit the red carpet and as soon as we left the suite, all the madness began.
