Day 10 of the Cannes Film Festival started with the premiere of James Gray’s highly anticipated film “The Immigrant.”
The film, starring Marin Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner, obtained impressive reviews and propelled Cotillard to front-runner status for the Best Actress Award at the Festival. She could also become a potential Oscar nominee. Variety wrote, “This rich, beautifully rendered film boasts an arrestingly soulful performance from Marion Cotillard as a Polish nurse.
Other major films to premiere included the Critic’s Week selection “The Lunchbox” starring Irfan Khan. And the out of competition film “Max Rose.”
“The Selfish Giant” won the Europa Cinemas Label for the best European film.
The Cannes Film festival will hand the Un Certain Regard awards on Saturday and will announce the Palme d’Or winner on Sunday May 26.
L’Oréal Paris invited four global stars to walk the red carpet. One is Italian model Bianca Balti (who we actually interviewed and saw on the red carpet last night, as well.) Another is former Miss Universe, Ximena Navarrete (who we saw last year at the festival). Two Turkish stars, Cansu Dere and Saadet Aksoy, were also on hand.
The Italian model wore fuchsia last night– a burst of colour after her simple look at the amFAR gala. For her third Cannes appearance, Bianca went for yet another colour combination, wearing a striking red and black transparent number. She chose makeup to match!
The Mexican actress and model chose a long, purple dress for the red carpet. The colour was vibrant, so she downplayed it with a simple makeup style and long, loose hair.This also had another advantage– it showed off how truly pretty her hair really is!
Turkish model Cansu wore her reddish hair in a simple ponytail, which contrasted with her flowing white dress. A simple smoky eye perfected her makeup look, especially when paired with some light pink lipgloss!
Saadet showed up in a long-sleeved Valentino dress, a gorgeous pearly grey number that has actually been very popular with the stars (Nicole Kidman wore a similar one, as did a Chinese actress.) Saadet went for a perfectly natural beauty look: her hair in a bun, her nails with a simple clear topcoat and her brows being the defining feature of her very naturally made-up face.
