Worst red carpet looks from 2021 -
Elena Lenina in Nika Shabashova
Elena Lenina, a Russian businesswoman and television presenter, wore a gold gown by Nika Shabashova. While Elena's experimentation is admirable, the red carpet expected much more from her. Following the event, headlines speculated on whether Elena was aware she was attending the Cannes Film Festival rather than the Met Gala.
Jessica Chastain’s in Dior
Jessica Chastain walked the red carpet at the 74th annual Cannes Film Festival in a Dior Couture Autumn-Winter 2019-2020 by Maria Grazia Chiuri gown that featured a strapless layered black net evening gown embellished with velvet scrolls. The gown was stunning and elegant, but it was a little too solemn for Chastain. The beautiful emerald jewels and red lip were overshadowed by a little too simple black gown.
Abigail Breslin in Dolce & Gabbana
Abigail Breslin wore an emerald green gown by Dolce & Gabbana with a crystal-encrusted neckline. She accessorised the look with emerald jewellery. The gown's colour and shape did not compliment Abigail or the 74th Cannes red carpet.
