Adriana Lima wore a Naeem Khan wedding gown in Cannes: tacky or fine?

70th annual Cannes Film Festival - 'Nelyubov' - Premiere

Here are some stragglers from the Cannes Film Festival. I’m including photos from Day 2’s premieres, plus some photocall pictures from today, Friday, Day 3. Let’s start with Adriana Lima! Lima shows up to Cannes regularly, probably because of her various modeling contracts. I can’t say that she usually made a major impression on me in years past, and she wouldn’t have made an impression on me this year, except… she actually wore a wedding gown to the Day 2 premieres. This look is Naeem Khan’s Spring 2018 wedding gown. All she needs is a veil and she’ll look like she’s headed to her wedding. Is that tacky, to wear a wedding gown to Cannes? I can’t decide what I think. On one side, I feel like this is boring enough where it doesn’t look over-the-top bridal. On the other side, once you know it’s a wedding gown, you can’t unsee it.

Lily Donaldson wore what amounts to a dress which was half-lingerie, half-ballerina. This is Dior. I honestly don’t completely hate it.

Winnie Harlow wore Zuhair Murad Spring 2017. This is another perfect princess gown.

Here are Tilda Swinton and Lily Collins at today’s photocall for Okja, their insane new movie (you can see the trailer here). Tilda looked like a Republican senator in this pale green Haider Ackermann suit. Who would have thought that Lily Collins would be the one to bring more drama than Tilda? Lily wore Johanna Ortiz. One complaint: Lily’s hair is pulled too tight.

    Adriana Lima still looks way better than What’s her face Hadid imo.

    And I kind of like that white ballerina dress also.

  2. Cherry says:

    Wow, major case of serious bitchface.
    I am genuinely scared. Did someone piss Adriana off?

  3. Blaire Carter says:

    I’m dying over Lily Collins!

  4. Steph says:

    Omg..lily looks extremely white. And that outfit is horrible.

  5. Hotpockets says:

    I saw a comment once that read “Adriana Lima brushing her teeth is still sexier than Bella Hadid, Kendull Jenner and Hailey Baldwin posing half naked.”

    Adriana Lima wearing anything is still better than any nepomodel fashion.

  6. Jeesie says:

    Eh, it doesn’t look like a traditional wedding gown. Put a cutout across the middle and it looks like every dress Kate Hudson’s ever worn.

  7. TyrantDestroyed says:

    Is Lilly Collins wearing makeup? She looks extremely pale.

  8. Bridget says:

    It isn’t that it’s a wedding gown, it’s that it’s pretty much the most boring Naeem Khan gown she could find. Though unless Adrianna Lima is there repping L’Oréal or some jewelry company (or someone partnered with AmFar) she’s at the festival because she wants to be or she’s networking. Cannes isn’t an event models and actresses are sent to to rep random brands/contracts. However, it is a huge social event with a couple of weeks of amazing parties.

  9. Jegede says:

    In the header picture, Adriana Lima kinda looks like a Superman II baddie :)

  10. teacakes says:

    Eh, it’s a long sparkly white dress – but it really doesn’t look instant ‘bridal’ to me at all and Adriana isn’t wearing it as if it is.

    Also she and Lily Donaldson are working dresses that would have just been boring rags on any instamodel. Like they say, ultimately the pictures say it all.

  11. ichsi says:

    Winnie Harlow looks absolutely stunning. Donaldson needs to be punkified a little imho.

  12. Sequinedheart says:

    Lily Donaldson is having a toe-gate/toemageddon moment, a la Julianne Moore.

  13. LadyElenor says:

    i dont mind any of the dresses. what i dont like with the latest fashion trend is all the tops and dresses with the little boob-cups…..cant STAND it.

  14. Marianne says:

    Ive seen other celebrities wear similar dresses to Adriana’s, so if you hadn’t said it was a wedding gown I probably wouldnt have thought it as out of place.

  15. Ankhel says:

    Hahahaha – Tilda Swinton looks like she’s sulking because she wants Lily Collins’ outfit more than her own.

  16. Tata says:

    Does anyone else remember when Adriana Lima and the other victoria’s secret models were allowed to look a little fuller? I feel like she toned down significantly to meet current (tiny) body standards but she looked better much, much fuller – body and face.

  17. tmot says:

    I do completely hate the Dior. It looks like they forgot to send the overdress. Also, I thought the whole granny panties/sheer thing was over. It’s sad what Dior and Chanel have become.

  18. bella says:

    I love Adriana’s dress. I think it looks beautiful on her. And Lily Collins always looks impeccable. She is my girl crush and I will go see her in any movie.

  19. lol says:

    Because of her various modeling contracts? No. She is there because she wants to be seen. She needs modelling contracts. She is not the face of those brands. (L’Oréal, etc.)

    It doesn’t look like a wedding gown. The dress is boring and this article is boring. I wonder why you never write articles about her personal life. You know… Her relationship with Matt Harvey and Edelman.

    Adriana’s dress really doesn’t look that bridal to me *shrug*
