Nobody doubts Cannes’ credentials as one of the glamorous locations on the earth nevertheless it may also be fairly chaotic. By no means for Julianne Moore.
“I at all times felt that there’s one thing very comforting about being round Julianne,” says veteran stylist Leslie Fremar, who styled Moore for years, together with the vast majority of her couture-clad appearances up the steps of the Palais in Cannes. “She provides off an aura that nothing goes to go improper, and he or she shines that mild on her whole workforce. Everybody then feels that we’re good, we received this. She’s the captain of that and it’s actually infectious and calming.”
That vitality is the proper accent for the movie pageant and its trend calls for, particularly for Moore who has made many an look in Cannes the place she’s due again once more this 12 months to assist her work reverse Natalie Portman in Todd Haynes’ competitors title Could December.
Forward of her anticipated return, The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Fremar who took a stroll down reminiscence lane to provide the tales behind 5 of her favourite Cannes collaborations.
2014 in Chanel
Julianne loves feathers — she’s at all times been enamored by birds and feathers. When this costume arrived to the workplace, it was simply so lovely and when she put it on, I bear in mind pondering that she appeared like essentially the most lovely chook. There’s one thing actually particular concerning the mild in Cannes and when she hit the pink carpet, along with her hair colour and pores and skin tone, she simply glistened. I bear in mind this second prefer it was yesterday and it nonetheless is one in every of my all-time favourite seems I’ve ever executed.
2015 in Armani Privé
Armani custom-made this for her and so they despatched over these unbelievable sketches that appeared a lot like Julianne that it was outstanding. Typically when designers ship over sketches, you recognize precisely how the costume goes to look when it arrives and different instances, it may be extra summary. However this look was unbelievable. It’s precisely how she ended up wanting. When she put it on, she appeared so lovely as she at all times does in inexperienced tones and feathers. It was such a pleasant second. The emerald earrings [from Chopard] actually complimented her pores and skin tone, hair colour and eyes so we gravitated so much towards emeralds and amethysts as a result of they at all times look so lovely on her.
2015 in Givenchy
This was unbelievable. We really did the becoming with Riccardo [Tisci, former creative director] which is at all times such a tremendous expertise once you get to suit the costume with the designer. The entire course of in all probability takes six weeks from receiving the sketches, giving suggestions, going by means of swatches and materials after which having a number of fittings. It’s undoubtedly a course of. When she put it on, it was so magical. Velvet is such a wealthy cloth that absorbs a lot mild, so it simply makes it learn actually wealthy and darkish against shiny and reflective. She had an identical shoe in velvet and the best way she walked with the slit, I do not forget that when the images went reside, it was a really particular second. She appeared so assured and horny. It’s undoubtedly a standout for me.
2018 in Saint Laurent
This costume match like a glove and was so easy and stylish. After we acquired the sketches, there have been completely different variations on the factors and the asymmetry with the angle of the neckline. We ended up selecting it as you see it. Typically it’s more durable to do one thing easy versus one thing that’s over-the-top and larger-than-life. Making one thing easy and stylish stand out in that surroundings isn’t essentially straightforward to do. However I really feel like she actually stood out in that costume with that necklace [from Chopard].
2019 in Givenchy
She wanted a number of seems that 12 months and I had gone to the Givenchy suite in Cannes the place I noticed the costume and mentioned, “Oh my god, what’s that? That costume is wonderful. She must put on it.” Typically manufacturers put together to go to Cannes figuring out that issues come up final minute for individuals otherwise you add an occasion to your schedule so individuals want garments. That means, the manufacturers are set as much as assist these sorts of conditions and so they had this costume there and we’d by no means seen it earlier than. They introduced it to her room — I imagine she was staying on the Martinez that 12 months — and your entire Givenchy workforce confirmed up and we did a becoming. It was good and he or she was out the door.
