For the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival, we saw L'Oreal muse Blake Lively step out in an electric red jumpsuit – one of her best looks yet – for the photo call of Woody Allen's new film Café Society. The film isn't set to release in North America until mid July, but its debut at the Cannes 2016 opening gala – not to mention star-studded cast – has generated a lot of buzz in the world of cinema. With A-list leading ladies Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart starring in a film about the glamour of the Hollywood film industry in the 1930s, we can almost bet that the costumes won't be anything less than enviable.
With influences and archival pieces coming from French fashion house, Chanel, we can't help but obsess over the looks that will come from the lead actresses' wardrobes. And if Chanel was the epitome of style, luxury, and glamour in the 20th century, this is one silver screen flick you won't want to miss.
While we can't deny that the Chanel-clad wardrobes will be anything but chic, the gorgeous, simplistic dresses are more of a canvass to showcase timeless jewelry pieces that will adorn the likes of Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart on the big screen. After all, nothing says glamour quite like a classic Chanel brooche or earrings.
Gabrielle Chanel's simplistic style may have defined glamour in the 1930s, but the period was also defined by its rebellious, flapper-esque bobbed hair and sultry makeup looks that Blake Lively so easily depicts in the film.
OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR FROM HEAD TO TOE
In Café Society, old Hollywood glamour radiates from blonde beauty Blake Lively, from her head to her toes. Her character is enhanced with a bright red manicure reminiscent of L'Oreal's Infallible Red nail polish. Her fingers are complimented further by stacked rings that are decorated with glitter giving her a timeless Old Hollywood look that highlights her full-length silver gown with plunging neckline.
Blake is the epitome of beauty in the 1930's with her thick layer of black shadow and liner on the eye lids, and a touch of silver that reflects the glamour of the time period. Her lashes are coated with mascara and her lips are glossed with a matte red adding the final touches to her timeless look.
To get her look, use L'Oreal's Colour Riche Luminous Shadows in Incredible Grey on your eye lids, Superstar mascara on your lashes, and Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Shanghai Scarlet on your lips.
The 1920s-30s were defined by rebellious flapper girls who fought against societies expectations by chopping off their hair, bounding their breasts, and taking on masculine activities like heavy drinking and smoking. Although Blake Lively emanates nothing but feminine glamour in Café Society, her hair represents the era of rebellion in a subtle way.
Curled into soft waves that are brushed out for a fuzzy, Old Hollywood effect, Blake Lively's hair is chopped into a short bob – one of this season's hottest hair trends. To get her look, curl your hair in different directions using a large barrel curling iron. Brush the curls out once you've curled your entire head for a Blake Lively, 1930s-approved look and complete with hairspray.
