Jessica Chastain Had A Bow-Down Moment In An Arab Gown At Cannes

The Zero Dark Thirty star – and film festival panellist – taps Zuhair Murad for her closing ceremony look…

It was the last night of the annual Cannes Film Festival, so jury member Jessica Chastain was in need of a perfect ending when it came to rounding out her red carpet wardrobe.

Enter Zuhair Murad, who gave the Golden Globe-winning actress a memorable final act for the festival’s closing ceremony.

The Lebanese label dressed the star in a customised haute couture gown inspired by its Spring/Summer 2017 collection, featuring an elaborate swirl of scarlet beading, structured cap sleeves and sweetheart neckline.

The crepe floor-sweeper also added extra wow-factor with some artful draping and a cut-out back.

With the Old Hollywood waves, classic red lip, and ornate earrings, this has got to be up there with Chastain’s top 10 red-carpet looks.

The Beirut-born brand also dressed Victoria’s Secret model Izabel Goulart towards the end of the festival, decking her out in a firework-emblazoned golden gown.

The way the beading catches the light, without looking OTT, is a particular highlight.

Also plumping for an Arab-crafted design was actress Praya Lundberg, who chose a striking striped number from Lebanese-American label Rami Kadi Couture.

With its psychedelic metallic pattern, high neck and hemline dripping in feathers, this head-turning number really stood out among a sea of simple block colours.

With Cannes now done for another year, we’re sad to wave goodbye to a daily dose of envy-inducing gowns.

However we’ll leave you with the best of the rest of the festival’s final looks for now. Until next year, ladies!
