The dress was also worn in a movie over 10 years ago.
For the second day in a row, Bella Hadid made a splash on the croisette, walking the red carpet for the premiere of Pedro Almodovar’s latest film Dolor y Gloria (Pain and Glory) staring Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas. Hadid went for a signature sexy look compared to the previous day when she had a very angelic moment in a white tulle gown by Dior Haute Couture.
Hadid walked the red carpet in a show-stopping asymmetrical, silk jersey Roberto Cavalli dress, featuring ruby crystal embroidery on the straps of the dress, a cut-out on the side and a completely open back. Magnifique! As the French would say.
If there’s one thing we know about the supermodel it’s that she can commit to bold looks, whether it’s a naked dress or a strong color. Hadid added more ruby jewelry courtesy of Bulgari to her look, as well as a matching crimson lip.
While Cannes has become synonymous with glamorous gowns that are often custom made for the A-listers, this is not the first time this Roberto Cavalli gown has made an appearance at the annual Cannes Film Festival. Actress Sharon Stone was actually the first star to wear this sultry look, but she didn’t wear it for a film premiere. She wore it for the annual party thrown by iconic fine jeweler DeGrisogno in 2013. Stone let the dress do all the taking for this particular occasion, keeping her hair and makeup simple.
The dress also made a cameo in Mission Impossible III in 2006 worn by actress Maggie Q.
Who says you can’t wear the same dress more than once?
