Finally! The 62nd International Cannes Film Festival 2009 has begun. The Cannes Film Festival is one of the most important red carpet events of the year (feels like the European Oscars). It’s the place where couture gowns are the order of the day. I’m so excited to see who’s going to wear whom and I secretly hope to see someone (Cate, are you with me?) rocking some of the spectacular Christian Dior Spring 2009 couture gowns (♥ ♥ ♥).
For the opening ceremony, it were Shu Qi and Asia Argento who impressed me the most with their dresses. Shu Qi wore a beautiful, flowy teal
Valentino Roberto Cavalli strapless gown while Asia settled for a floral printed Armani PrivÃ©. And the shoes were just as stunning as the gowns. Shu Qi opted for Giuseppe Zanotti (?!) rosette stilettos and Asia went for the black lace-up runway platforms which are also absolutely to die for. I couldn’t decide on whom I liked more, so I chose both!
