The Most Stylish Metallic Dresses at Cannes of All Time

My picks of the most elegant metallic dresses to ever be worn at Cannes Film Festival



The number of #metallic dresses worn at Cannes film festival is vast. Especially with the continuing metallic trend of recent years. However, whilst many women have looked glowing in their light reflecting dress of choice, I have picked out my own particular favourites:


Model Alessandra Ambrosio wearing a shining hooded Elie Saab dress at Cannes Film Festival 2023. I love the choice of Pomellato jewellery which perfectly complements the gown.

Let me know in the comments which of the chosen metallic dresses you like the most. I absolutely love hooded dresses and Zuhair Murad but my favourite one of all is Deepika Padukone's dramatic black Louis Vuitton gown. Thank you for viewing, Gina.
