Liya Kebede is used to attracting plenty of attention on the catwalks. But she reminded us she has just as much starpower among screen sirens like Marion Cotillard, Diane Kruger, Kirsten Dunst, and Nicole Kidman when she attended the 65th annual Cannes film festival. The model stood out on the scene with her enviably cool take on Riviera glamour—a sideswept bob, barely-there makeup, a lip brighter than the red carpet she stood upon, and a killer wardrobe of Carven, Roberto Cavalli, and Proenza Schouler that had nary a floor-sweeping gown in the mix. Don’t get us wrong. We will never get enough of the couture frocks, updos, and flawlessy painted faces on parade at this event. It’s just that Liya’s look was a breath of fresh air, as easy and breezy and sultry as the seaside itself.
