Lori Harvey just executed this year’s Met Gala theme at the opening ceremony of the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. Harvey hit the red carpet at Palais Des Festivals in a commanding strapless ballgown that exuded “Gilded Glamour.” The ruffled gown, which is Look 40 from Alexandre Vauthier‘s Spring 2020 Couture Collection, featured a frayed bodice wrapped in layers of spooled ribbon and held together by a shimmering diamond brooch on the left hip. The voluminous skirt flared in tiers of buttery-yellow ruffles framing Harvey’s waist, reaching down to an inch above the red carpet to give us a glimpse of her pointed gold heels. She styled the look with a layered Messika Paris High Jewelry Shards of Mirror Necklace, Illusionistes Diamond Clip Earrings, a Danseurs Aériens Two Finger Ring, and a Toi & Moi Ring.
In a sea of suits and breezy maxi dresses, Harvey illuminated the red carpet, keeping firm focus on the whimsical garment with her relatively minimal accessories. The dress’s buttery sheen caught the sunlight beautifully, and her refined beauty look — a french manicure, a sleek bun, and a glossy two-toned lip — gave Harvey’s full ensemble a total air of regality. Sophisticated, sleek, and perfect for a day out on the French Riviera.
Harvey’s actual Met Gala look was a crisscross Michael Kors dress in black with a flowing train and a daring ab-baring diamond cutout. “Thank you, @michaelkors, for letting me be one of your muses for the evening! What a moment! I don’t think I’ll ever be over this stunning dress you made for me,” Harvey gushed on Instagram following the event.
