CANNES/DUBAI: German fashion influencer Leonie Hanne put her red carpet style firmly in the hands of Lebanese designers this week, as she wowed crowds at the Cannes Film Festival in a trio of gowns by creative talents from the Middle Eastern country.
In what is considered a make or break fashion event for many influencers and models, where photographers from around the world flock to capture red carpet style, Hanne opted for show stopping gowns by Tony Ward, Rami Kadi and Georges Hobeika.
Hanne attended the screening of Matt Damon-starring “Stillwater” earlier at the festival in an iridescent, pleated gown with an embellished neckline by Lebanese-Italian designer Tony Ward, which hailed from his latest couture collection.
Next up, she attended the premiere of “Les Intranquilles” in a similarly glistening number by Lebanon’s Rami Kadi, although this look featured a column cut, a feathered bodice and was a sweet shade of peach.
The skirt featured layer upon layer of fringed sheets of sequins, which played in the wind as the Instagram star sauntered down the red carpet.
Hanne completed the look with a low ponytail and rose-hued makeup, which she showed off to her 3.6 million Instagram followers before hitting the red carpet.
Finally, the influencer, who is based between Germany and London, opted for a larger-than-life ballgown by Georges Hobeika for the closing ceremony of the festival on Saturday.
“Going big (and golden) for the last night of the Cannes Film Festival,” she aptly captioned a shot of the gleaming gown on Instagram.
With layers of pleated, sparkling sequined fabric, a synched waist and a dramatic ruffle on the bodice, it was a theatrical choice for one of the biggest nights in the film industry.
Hanne showed off accessories by Italian fine jeweler Pomellato throughout the festival, and rounded out her trio of looks with a diamond-encrusted pair of link earrings and matching bracelet.
