Hollywood Glamour at Cannes

Selena Gomez captivated onlookers at the Cannes Film Festival, dazzling in a red ensemble that exuded Hollywood glamour. The singer and actress, aged 31, attended a photocall for her film Emilia Pérez in Cannes, France, on Sunday, May 19.

Stunning Red Outfit

Gomez wore a custom red off-the-shoulder Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress. The ruffled silk dress featured silk organza roses across the décolletage and an A-line mid-length skirt. 

She completed her look with red Christian Louboutin heels and matching nails. Her hair was styled in retro waves with a side-swept fringe, complemented by pink eyeshadow and lipstick. Wild Moon earrings and the Snake Dance ring by Messika jewelry added the finishing touches to her glamorous appearance.

Emotional Reception for Emilia Pérez

Gomez’s appearance at the photocall followed an emotional moment at the festival. On Saturday, May 18, she received a minutes-long standing ovation for Emilia Pérez, as reported by Variety and Deadline. Moved by the audience’s reaction, Gomez broke down in tears at the Palais in Cannes.

Emilia Pérez: A Unique Role

In Emilia Pérez, Gomez plays the unsuspecting wife of drug cartel leader Manitas. The plot centers around Manitas hiring an overqualified and undervalued lawyer, Rita, to assist him in undergoing a sex change operation to become a woman and retire into obscurity.

Red Carpet Elegance

Prior to the screening, Gomez joined her costars Zoe Saldaña, Édgar Ramírez, Karla Sofía Gascón, and director Jacques Audiard on the red carpet. For the premiere, she donned an elegant black velvet Saint Laurent gown featuring a white ruched bardot neckline. 

She paired the gown with Santoni heels and a Diamond Swan Bulgari necklace, wearing her hair in a high ponytail and sporting a sleek cat eye and peach-nude lipstick.

Chic Arrival in France

Gomez’s chic style was evident even before the festival began. On Friday, May 17, she arrived in France wearing a white knit peplum mini dress by Self-Portrait, priced at $495, along with white-and-black slingback Roger Vivier pumps. Her stylish arrival set the tone for her subsequent show-stopping appearances at Cannes.

Selena Gomez’s presence at the Cannes Film Festival has not only highlighted her fashion prowess but also underscored her emotional connection to her work, as evidenced by the heartfelt reception of Emilia Pérez.
