The Red Carpet Premiere of "Top Gun: Maverick" at Cannes - A Hand Tailored Suit

The Red Carpet Premiere of "Top Gun: Maverick" at Cannes

The prestigious Cannes Film Festival 2022 is well underway, and all eyes have been on the famous stars who have turned out for the event on the glitzy red carpets in the French Riviera city of Cannes. With many films premiering, the 18th May was the turn of the highly-anticipated return of Tom Cruise as 'Maverick' in "Top Gun: Maverick". With such excitement came a glamorous red carpet, and we've selected a few of our favourite ensembles from the event, starting with:

The star of "Top Gun" Tom Cruise was in attendance and donned a two-piece Giorgio Armani dark blue suit with contrasting satin details though the trouser side stripes and his peak lapels on the jacket. With a double vent on the jacket for extra ease, and maybe a more relaxed approach to the red carpet, it was cut with thin double jet pockets on the front and one button for the fastening. The welt pocket was styled with a folded white pocket square to pair with his classic collar evening dress shirt, fastened with studs down the front. The shoulders were well-tailored with a smooth line that matched the rest of the smooth suit.

Playing 'Penny Benjamin' in the new upcoming film, actress Jennifer Connelly dazzled in silver on the premiere's red carpet at Cannes. Her Louis Vuitton evening gown was floor-length and designed with a straight line across the top for a sharp off-shoulder style. The bodice was structured to the waist, fitted from the skirt below and flaring out slightly to create a subtle train behind. Behind the vast textured silver layer is a dark fabric background, seen occasionally to create this sort of cracking design throughout the gown.

Elle Fanning

Actress Elle Fanning was also in attendance for the film's premiere and wore a light pink embroidered crystal gown from Giorgio Armani Privé. The straight neckline curved down and round to the back to create a low cut design, the top half of the dress structured and fitted to contrast the mermaid tulle hem at the bottom. It was layered with a few layers of tulle and either silk/satin to add that subtle shimmery glamour and enhance the glistening of the embroidery.

Starring as 'Coyote' in the film, actor Greg Tarzan Davis looked dapper in a coral two-piece double-breasted suit from Dolce & Gabbana, paired with a white covered button placket white shirt and black bow tie. The peak lapels were wide and a contrasting lighter shade of pink to be a statement detail on the piece. Six buttons featured on the front and four on the cuffs, with the flapped pockets outlined through matching light pink jets. His white pocket square was folded neatly in the welt pocket, whilst the trousers were slim-cut and finished just above the shoes with a sharp centre crease.

He's playing the character 'Coyote' in "Top Gun: Maverick" and for the red carpet premiere, actor Jay Ellis looked sleek in a two-piece Versace very dark blue suit. The jacket was fastened with a low cut to elongate the form, fastened with a silver gem button on the front. The notch lapels were contrasting in black to match the bow tie, whilst a white pocket square sat in the welt pocket behind and two single jet pockets featured lower down. The shoulders were ever so slightly rounded and the shirt cuffs on show through the jacket sleeves, whilst the trousers were slim-cut with a definitive centre crease on the front.

Actress Sveva Alviti was spotted on the "Top Gun" Cannes red carpet wearing a shiny silver Missoni double-breasted suit, accessorising with silver and blue accessories. The texture of the cloth creates a lace-like patterned finish from afar as the jacket is constructed with notch lapels and a long welt pocket on the chest. Six button featured on the front with long single jet pockets sitting just below the waist of the oversized garment. The shoulders were padded and slightly wider to showcase the oversized style, contrasted by the straight-leg trousers and long hem draping on the floor.

Matthew Postlethwaite

Actor Matthew Postlethwaite matched the red carpet wearing a statement red textured double-breasted jacket, finished with a wide shawl collar and thin double jet pockets below the waist. The welt pocket was left as is, and the cuffs were designed with four buttons each side with just two buttons on the front. His white shirt cuffs are on show to really outline the bold red colour, whilst the shirt itself is made with a classic collar and fastened with black dress studs. The black bow tie is also very definitive in its height, pairing well with the matte black evening trousers.

Miles Teller

Actor Miles Teller donned a cream Celine three-piece attire on the red carpet for the premiere, in which he plays 'Bradley Bradshaw' in the film. His jacket was finished with rounded shoulders and four-button cuffs, covered in the matching fabric. It was single-breasted in cut and fastened with just the single button, made with flapped pockets and a welt pocket sitting behind his peak lapels. Just showing underneath is his single-breasted waistcoat cut high on the chest and fastened with light brown buttons to complement the light-coloured suit palette. The trousers were slim-line and finished with a matching satin side stripe, whilst the evening shirt was sleek with a covered button placket and classic black bow tie on the collar.

Actress Viola Davis shone in a vibrant yellow off-shoulder gown from Alexander McQueen at the Cannes premiere, with the hem just brushing the red carpet for an elegant finish. The bodice was fitted and sharply constructed with boning in the channels, whilst the waistband was a substantial height to separate the fitted top from the pleated skirt at the bottom. The neckline was decorated with a statement ruffle/fabric manipulation, complementing the shape of flared skirt quite nicely.

Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan stunned on the red carpet for the film's premiere in a full Dolce & Gabbana black gown, heavily decorated with many yellow, pink and white fabric flowers on alternate sides of her shoulders and below the waist. The shoulders are slightly dropped for an off-shoulder design, finished with subtle pleating that cuts across diagonally across the structured bodice front to the waist. The same pleating follows from the waistline down into the skirt which is a statement itself thanks to the vast amount of flowers in a triangular section of the gown. The black fabric drapes behind and falls to the floor to create a dramatic yet beautiful red carpet look.

Along with the premiere at Cannes Film Festival, there were also some sophisticated outfits worn for the UK premiere of "Top Gun: Maverick". Check out some of them below! Which look has caught your eye the most?
