Elsa Hosk wowed the audience at the 76th Cannes Film Festival with her gravity-defying presence. The supermodel stole the show at The Pot-au-Feu (French: La Passion de Dodin Bouffant) premiere on Wednesday, May 24, donning a mesmerizing optical illusion dress that turned heads.
The extraordinary creation by Viktor & Rolf, originally showcased during the fashion house’s Spring/Summer Haute Couture Fashion Week in January, boasts a deconstructed silhouette.

The dress features a delicate blush-colored corset seamlessly attached to an eye-catching blue ballgown, creating the illusion of being digitally rotated to the right of Hosk’s body.
The Cinderella-esque ensemble showcases a sweetheart neckline, accentuated with charming bows at the waist and a billowing tulle skirt that adds to the fairytale aesthetic.

Her glamorous makeup included sparkling blue eyeshadow that beautifully enhanced her eyes, while a nude lip completed the look.
Hosk’s blonde tresses were styled in a chic and playful bouncy bob, adding a youthful and contemporary touch to the overall appearance.
Viktor & Rolf’s Spring/Summer line was a true spectacle. Elsa Hosk’s remarkable outfit was one of the highlights, but the line also featured a range of captivating designs that were sure to turn heads.
