L'Oréal Paris brand ambassador Jane Fonda is both a beauty icon and a constant source of style inspiration. A regular Cannes VIP, Jane is a busy lady during the film festival, but we managed to grab her for a quick chat just before she hit the red carpet for the opening ceremony on Day One. Read on to hear what she has to say about her relationship with her fellow L'Oréal ambassadors and her look for the opening ceremony...
Lady in Red
For this year's opening ceremony, Jane stunned in a gorgeous sheer wine red Ellie Saab dress featuring intricate sequin detailing. As ever, the star defied her age and looked every inch the glamorous star. She really has the art of dressing for the Cannes red carpet down to a fine art!
Jane opened up about how she picked her outfit for the big night: "I tried on many dresses and this one sort of said to me "I'm supposed to be on the red carpet". This is a red carpet dress and I've never worn red on a red carpet. I wanted to wear something that I thought would be flattering, so I could fool them all for another year, anyway. It's comfortable, surprisingly!"
Nails to Match
Jane chose a red nail polish in a "scarlet vamp" shade which matched her dress. The star explained her choice of nail color: "The nail polish is making me feel very vampish. Even when I'm not in Cannes doing red carpet things, I wear L'Oréal nail polish, because it's the best (...) I wore it all day (...) It can go from day to night and I'll probably have it on all day tomorrow too!"
The L'Oréal Family
Why exactly are the other L'Oréal brand ambassadors so special to Jane? The star explained that the other L'Oréal ladies were "real people" for a real brand, who are normal and nice to be around. The star added, "I have a whole expanded group of friends because of L'Oréal Paris!" Feel the love!
