Olivia Culpo brought the cutting edge trend to the 76th Cannes Film Festival red carpet. At the premiere of “Asteroid City” on May 23, Culpo revealed a plunging neckline and plunging neckline in Miss Sohee’s gown. Aside from the stunning diamond shape, the rest of the bodice was minimal, with long midnight navy velvet sleeves, a high neckline, and a periwinkle skirt with a border of silver and blue crystals filling in where it started. The dress then draped around the model and bloomed into a mermaid shape with bright pleats that swept the floor behind her. “There’s no better feeling than taking off a leather dress,” Colpo said on an Instagram story late in the night. “Freedom!”
Styled by Micaela Erlanger, Culpo completed her cut-out gown with jewels from Bulgari, allowing her new engagement ring from fiancee Christian McCaffery to shine through her dress. She pulled her hair back into a sleek chignon to focus on the dress, matching the rest of the glam to her outfit’s color palette with smokey purple eye makeup by Sir John.
Standing on the red carpet seemed effortless for Culpo, but after performing, she admits that designing a wedding dress is more difficult than choosing the right gown for the event. “It’s really hard, because with clothes, I have so many ideas — so many things I’m really excited about,” she told E! News earlier this month. “I want to show Christian, but he said, “No, I can’t see it. Don’t show me because it must be amazing!”
While we wait for more wedding planning details to be revealed, read on to see how Kulapo stunned at Cannes from every angle.
