You know what? I’m kind of tired of everyone referring to the leg slit as “Angelina Jolie‘s thing.” The fact of the matter is, any woman can rock a leg slit, and Bella Hadid has proven that twice over on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. We still consider the sultry Alexandre Vauthier silk gown she wore back in 2016 her sexiest look ever. Stylist Elizabeth Sulcer eventually revealed that that look came with a built-in bodysuit. But what were Bella’s secrets this time around as she stole the spotlight at the Pain And Glory screening?
Just one day after slipping into a stunning Dior gown that could’ve passed for a wedding dress, Bella pulled this Roberto Cavalli number from the archives, complete with a flowing train, a cutout, and an elegant halter neckline. Bella completed her outfit with stunning diamonds and ruby earrings from Bulgari, along with a pair of Brian Atwood sandals. She may be a model, but it’s plain to see that a dress like this one requires a lot of confidence – especially when you’re posing for the cameras at such a monumental event. Ahead, read on to see throwback shots of Bella at Cannes in Alexandre Vauthier in 2016, then catch an all-angles view of her 2019 moment.
