Kim Kardashian Draped Herself in Crystals for 2016 Cannes Red Carpet Debut

A crystal-covered Cannes debut! Kim Kardashian sparkled her way down the De Grisogono party at the Cannes Film Festival 2016 on Tuesday, May 17.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, was draped in a custom gown by Lan Yu Couture that that was held together by embellished chains. Beneath the sparkly crew-neck design, Kardashian wore a nude, strapless slip. A pair of statement earrings by de Grisogono completed her outfit.

The Selfish author, who arrived that day, joining momager Kris Jenner, sister Kendall Jenner and Scott Disick at the international festival, made sure her makeup and hair were on par with her glamorous outfit.

Kardashian loved the design, and wrote a grateful caption for the gown on Instagram. “Thank you @lanyucoutureofficial for making this amazing dress for me to wear in Cannes!”

Celeb stylist Jen Atkin slicked Kardashian’s locks back into a sleek bun, while makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic added drama with a smoky cat-eye that focused on the lower lid. “I used Cargo Swimmables Waterproof Eye Pencil in black to line the inner rims of her eyes all around on the top and bottom,” Dedivanovic told Us Weekly. “Then using a small brush, I applied a matte black shadow along the lower lash line over the pencil and extended [it] outward and upward [in the cat-eye shape]…I did not line the top lid or apply much shadow to [it].” He finished off her look with Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara.

Ahead of the star-studded event, which Bella Hadid and Paris Hilton also attended, Kardashian had her hands full of another precious stone — the largest one she’s ever held. “Wow! I thought I’d seen it all but this is the biggest diamond I have ever seen,” she wrote on Instagram. “Massive 404 carats at de Grisogono!”

Kardashian’s trip to France was a short one. She was spotted at the airport — with her hair still up in her elegant chignon — in a much more casual white dress and over-the-knee Sergio Rossi boots the next morning.
