#Cannes2015: "La Tête Haute" Premiere & Opening Ceremony Wish List

After the star studded "Grace of Monaco," which opened the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, went from Cannes to Lifetime, it seems as if festival director Thierry Frémaux decided to go in a much safer direction for this years opening ceremony by choosing "La Tête Haute" staring Catherine Deneuve and Sara Forestier. Catherine Deneuve is an acclaimed actress but she is far from a fashion plate and I am only moderately interested in what the 71 year old French actress will wear for the festival. For the photocall earlier in the day I would love to see Catherine turn to her friend Karl Largerfeld to wear this beige Chanel Fall 2015 RTW suede shirt dress. This is a perfect Cannes appropriate look, which despite its material and Fall label still comes off as light and breezy. A pair of nude Chanel pumps would finish this look off perfectly for a daytime photocall. For the films premiere and the Opening Ceremony I would love to see the legend wear this simplistic Lanvin Pre-Fall 2015 purple long sleeves silk draped gown, modified to have a little more of a train. I think that Catherine would look elegant, event and age appropriate wearing this stunning creation for the red carpet. A black Chanel clutch, a pair of black peep toe pumps, and some stunning Chopard jewelry would finish this look off perfectly for a Cannes film premiere.
Since I have little expectations from Catherine Deneuve to make my heart stop that responsibility will have to lie upon Sara Forestier. Every time that I have seen the 28 year old actress step out on a red carpet she has worn couture, and hey I ain't complaining. I would love to see Sara wear this purple Giambattista Valli Spring 2015 Couture floral trapeze tea length dress with cap sleeves for the "La Tête Haute" photocall. Only in Cannes could one get away with wearing a couture creation for a daytime photocall.  Hair swept up and a pair of simple strappy black sandals would ensure that this is a perfect photocall ensemble. For the big premiere and opening ceremony I would love to see Sara go for something very modern princess with this peach colored Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture embellished embroidered gown. I have been dying to see this gown on the red carpet and I think that Sara would be the perfect person to give this gown its red carpet moment and the occasion is more than worthy of this gown. A pair of gold sandals, a simple gold clutch, and simple earring would ensure that the dress does all of the talking.

The Opening Ceremony is exactly two weeks from today and I am ablaze with Cannes fever. Many Best Dressed of the Year contenders come from this festival and I am sure that this year is not going to be any different.
