WHERE & WHEN: “Cleopatra” 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival Premiere on May 21, 2013.
WEARING: Elie Saab Haute Couture dress, Swarovski clutch
MY VERDICT: Dita radiated in red when she arrived for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of “Cleopatra” wearing a beautiful tea-length Elie Saab gown. The three-quarter length sleeve belted lace cocktail dress comes from the designer’s Spring 2013 Haute Couture collection and includes beaded embroideries throughout heavier patches of delicate lace.
A beautiful dress can stand on its own, but if possible, Dita actually makes this even more appealing than it was on the runway. The scarlet shade pops off of her porcelain complexion, and Dita’s signature retro jet black curls exude elegance. Dita accessorized in red, of course, with a satin Swarovski crystal embellished “Power” clutch and matching pumps.
Rosy cheeks, a matte ruby lip, and a pop of green with emerald ornate earrings were the finishing touches.
