2013’s Cannes Festival Inspiration
Cannes Festival is one of modern cinema’s most iconic events, taking place every year! 2013 is upon us so we are taking a look at this year’s themes and inspirations.
Cannes 2013 is THE film festival, and is never far from the thoughts of movie buffs. The event, which dates back to 1946, features a host of independent, foreign and blockbuster films. Alongside the premiers and film awards, the Cannes catwalk, which supports the asfAR: cinema against AIDS foundation, champions a different theme each year. In 2012, the catwalk saw an overdose of black whereas 2013 marks the year of gold.
Carine Roitfield, the catwalk organiser, explains that this year’s theme was inspired by the late Elizabeth Taylor and her role as Cleopatra - whose image is synonymous with embellished gold and radiant beauty.
Elizabeth Taylor is not only a film legend, her career has seen her rise to become a style icon who lives and breathes old Hollywood glamour, she continues to inspire trends to this day. Her style is much lusted after, especially in the realm of volume and vintage themed events. Have a look at some of the different styles sported by this Hollywood Goddess and join us in feeling the Cannes vibe!
