Elle Fanning Plays Starring Role for Another Year at Cannes Film Festival

She wore an Alexander McQueen dress and Cartier Jewelry.




I DON’T THINK THERE has been a year that Elle Fanning hasn’t be the best dressed or one of the best dressed celebrities at the Cannes Film Festival. Since she started attending the festival at age 19 in 2016, she has always brought her A-game and some of the most head-turning gowns and jewelry. Her dreamy and elegant looks come from some of the most renowned houses you could imagine.

She never looks overdone or overly styled, but more like a princess, reminding me a little of Grace Kelly in her early years before she became a real princess and also in her early years at Monaco.

For the 2023 awards opening night premiere Jeanne du Barry, she wore a strapless Alexander McQueen — another winning gown — with a Cartier Tradition Perles de Diamants necklace, circa 1999, in 18K white gold and diamonds, Cartier Tradition Ruban bracelet, circa 1930 in platinum and diamonds and an Indomptables de Cartier ring in 18K white gold, emeralds and diamonds.

But while we are swooning over this look, let’s recall some of the other styles that put her on all the best dressed lists.

In 2022, she wore Chopard’s diamond bow in the hair, along with a diamond heart necklace. Here she’s shown with a three-tier diamond bracelet with a pale pink Giorgio Armani gown.

In 2019 she looked radiant in Chopard diamond earrings, a heart-shaped Chopard ring and a peach Gucci gown with a stunning pansy at the waist.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
