Due to be released in U.K cinemas next month (24th June 2022), it was the turn of "Elvis" to hit the Cannes Film Festival red carpet on the 25th May 2022. Those involved with the film, as well as other celebrities, attended the premiere in their glistening attires, no doubt giving a subtle nod to the glamour and style we can expect from the film itself. A few outfits caught our eye here at A Hand Tailored Suit, so let's delve into them, starting with "Elvis" himself:
Actor Austin Butler sported a double-breasted Celine suit on the red carpet for the premiere, accessorising with a blue and cream boutonnière on the one peak lapel for a subtle yet elegant pop of colour. The jacket is a six-button design with flapped pockets below the waist and a welt pocket on the chest containing a sharply folded white pocket square. The peak lapels are contrasting to match the satin side stripes down the trouser legs, whilst the buttons are covered in the same fabric on the front and four-button sleeve cuffs. The cut of the trousers are slim yet sharp, thanks to the centre front crease and hem sitting over the boots. The dress shirt is a white pleated style with a bow tie finishing the attire.
Playing 'Little Richard' in the upcoming film, actor Alton Mason's red carpet attire was sharp. Wearing a PRESSIAT ensemble, the tailoring focused on structure with boxy and padded shoulders across the top to create a strong appearance. The lapels were notched but also elongated across the top line to mirror the shoulders, leading down into a double-breasted front with four buttons. The same style of buttons featured on the four-buttons cuffs also, with the all-in-one attire constructed with flapped packets on the hip line and a welt pocket on the chest. The cloth was blue with a red pinstripe design, the blue tie narrow but complementing the ensemble well whilst secured under the tall white shirt collar. The styling of the rounded cuffs through the tailored sleeves is certainly a statement detail.
YouTuber and influencer Léna Mahfouf (also known as Léna Situations) stunned in a Stephane Rolland evening gown for the film's premiere. The monochrome look was enhanced with silver embellishment across the waistline and neckline, whilst the front bodice was bold through the oval black panel against the sheer front. The bejewelled neckline followed round into a chunky jewel hanging down the back, as the back of the gown itself angled diagonally down to create this open back. Whilst the skirt section was white and fitted on the front, the fabric was gathered and ruffled to create this voluminous detailing on the back. Full of shape, it leads down into a white train draping behind for its glamour moment.
Actress Olivia DeJonge dazzled in turquoise Gucci as she attended the premiere of "Elvis", where she herself plays 'Priscilla Presley' in the movie. The one-colour gown stood out through the texture that was added to the sleeve cuffs and the gown's hem, ruffled along all edges and draping behind with a graceful movement from the fabric train. The chiffon was pleated down the centre front with the neckline plunging into the top of the ruffles, meeting at the waist point. Cape sleeves were the style of choice, with the chiffon's draping qualities further enhanced here and on the cowl back. The weight of the ruffled hem would aid in the structure of the flared skirt, whilst still maintaining the soft appearance of the drapes.
Not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 statement looks were delivered by the band Måneskin on the red carpet, with themselves covering one of Elvis Presley's songs in the film. Their looks were all Gucci, varying from in cut, colour and design. Thomas Raggi sported a gold two-piece with shortened sleeves and a scooped black waistcoat to match his bow tie, whilst Damiano David's two-piece was sparkling sequin gold, styling with a peach shirt and bow tie also. Victoria De Angelis' look was quite chic with the V-neck shimmery light pink top, finished with an symmetrical pleated hem and styled over a pair of flared trousers, whilst Ethan Torchio's suit was quite ceramic through the blue floral print in his two-piece suit. Worn with a black sheer shirt and bow tie also, they were all cohesive and stylishly retro for the event.
Journalist and model Agatha Rousselle kept it elegantly chic on the red carpet, donning a Louis Vuitton suiting number. The two-piece had a slightly relaxed feel to the cut of its tailoring as the jacket was fastened low down with just the one button, positioned in the double-breasted style. The collar sat quite low down on the chest, pushing the peak lapels down too, but not affecting the soft padded line of the shoulders. Two double jet pockets were cut into the jacket, along with the classic welt (angled) on the chest. Her sleeves were rolled up to just below the elbows, exposing this gorgeous floral lining which adds that subtle pop of colour to the look. The trousers are a straight cut with pockets on the sides and a sharp centre crease to enhance the sharpness of the look.
Playwright and actor Jeremy O.Harris's lilac purple Gucci suit was very cool indeed, as the look included a shawl lapel tuxedo jacket and a pair of flared hem trousers, with the hem just sitting on top of his white shoes. The jacket itself was fastened with one button and featured two flapped pockets with the classic welt on the chest. Just like the fastening and the five buttons on the cuffs, they were contrasting in a lighter shade of purple, which the bow tie was able to accentuate perfectly in the look. The shirt was white with a classic collar and covered button placket on the front for a sleek finish, the shoulders padded and rounded ever so slightly for that dapper finish.
Mohammed Al Turki
Film producer Mohammed Al Turki looked suave in a three-piece Giorgio Armani number for the "Elvis" red carpet. The jacket and waistcoat are cut in a matching cloth which is geometrically designed in navy blue and silver. Focusing on the jacket, its features include thin double jet pockets below the waist and a welt pocket on the chest, along with contrasting navy peak lapels on the front. It's fastened with one fabric covered button (smaller versions feature on the sleeve cuffs), whilst the waistcoat is cut high and fastened with matching navy buttons also. The trousers are slim with a subtle centre crease on the front, leading down into the hem sitting on the shoes with a subtle break above. The look is complete with a buttonhole on the one lapel and a black bow tie on the neck.
Actress Kat Graham looked very sophisticated wearing a minimal Mônot black evening gown with long sleeves to the premiere. The dress was designed with a contrasting silk/satin finish collar and wide peak lapels to mirror padded, boxy shoulders on the top. The V-neck leads into a hidden fastening to keep the look sleek, before finishing with a column-style skirt on the bottom. Sheer panels are inserted on the sides for a subtle statement detail, whilst a knee-high slit is included on the back of the hem for a design and practical feature.
Actress Deepika Padukone's red carpet look for "Elvis" was a showstopper piece from Louis Vuitton, designed with fringed sleeves to contrast the gold brocade cloth seen throughout. The silhouette of the dress is fitted, allowing the sleeves to be the talking point of the look as they are outlined in a lighter gold around the edge. The black feathers shimmer in the spotlight, as too does the brocade cloth of the gown, fastened with a zip on the front. The gown was complete with a small fabric train on the bottom of the hem, capturing the occasion and evening dress code splendidly.
