Get the Look
Okay, okay so we know that the 2016 Cannes Film Festival was back in early May, which is like eons in Hollywood time, but bear with us. Blake Lively killed the game with some seriously flawless gowns (see above and below) and we are still in the afterglow. Her style is very much about pairing luxurious, glistening statement pieces with loose hair and soft, sultry make-up. Our favorite look of the festival was this stunning aqua-blue Atelier Versace moment. Check it out below with our tips so you can emulate Blake’s low-key, high glamour style!
Blake's hair is in a soft, flowing, mid-pony that gives some ease to the dramatic Atelier Versace dress. Texturizing sprays are great for this sort of hairstyle because they give great volume for free-flowing pony. And of course, don't forget hairspray to keep it all in place!
Blake's got the California girl look down to the sun-kissed skin. Her warm skin tone adds to the brightness of the dress. Tanning is not the only option to get that California glow, self-tanners do just the trick and save your skin from damage!
Blake’s gown and skin radiate warmth, so her make-up is surprisingly understated in comparison. Her lips feature a nice, dusty rose with a glossy finish, and pair with a barely there steel eye shadow. A muted make-up palette is a nice contrast against her otherwise saturated look.
