Whatever the occasion, Naomi Campbell always manages to leave a lasting impression on the red carpet.
And at the controversial Jeanne du Barry screening and opening ceremony red carpet at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, the 52-year-old British supermodel did just that, showcasing her impeccable sense of style and unapologetic glamour.
Naomi stole the spotlight in a mesmerizing Hedi Slimane creation, a floor-sweeping Celine gown adorned with shimmering silver sequins that effortlessly caught the light.

The gown boasted of a plunging neckline, exuding an alluring sex appeal that only Naomi could pull off gracefully. Adding a touch of movement and drama to her ensemble, the dress featured a swirling midsection masterfully gathered to draw attention to the front.
Every step she took was a mesmerizing display of elegance and confidence, making it clear why she remains a timeless icon in the fashion industry.
But Naomi’s fashion prowess didn’t stop at the gown. Her choice of accessories from Chopard elevated her ’70s-inspired ensemble to new heights, reminiscent of a dazzling disco ball.

The former ballet dancer adorned her wrists with silver arm cuff bracelets, delicately embellished with diamonds, and her fingers with chunky rings, adding a touch of luxury to her look.
And, of course, Naomi couldn’t go without a metallic clutch in hand, the perfect accessory to complement her show-stopping gown.
To shield her eyes from the camera’s intense lights, the American Horror Story actress donned a pair of funky white Celine Triomphe sunglasses, effortlessly blending style and functionality.

Her flawless makeup included a pop of pink lipstick, adding a touch of femininity to her radiant look.

Just weeks prior, the mom-of-one made heads turn at the 2023 Met Gala, where the theme paid homage to the late Karl Lagerfeld. Once again, Naomi proved her fashion prowess by donning a classic Chanel creation.
She exuded elegance from every angle in a vintage rosy pink gown from Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2010 couture collection.

The high-neck, half-swirling silver metallic sequined bodice beautifully transitioned into a flowing pink satin fabric, expertly draped to accentuate her statuesque figure.
Silver accents graced the sides of the skirt, while a daringly high split at the back showcased Naomi’s toned legs.

She chose two matching bangles to complete her ensemble and adorned her ears with silver drop earrings, effortlessly blending timeless elegance with contemporary allure.
Naomi’s hair was parted in the middle, falling poker straight down her back. A subtle pale pink matte lip and a smokey eye completed her makeup, enhancing her natural beauty without overpowering her ensemble.
As for her footwear, strappy silver sandal heels were chosen, although the hem of her dress somewhat overshadowed them.
Crafted from high-shine metallic leather and secured in place by wide straps that wrapped around her ankles, the shoes added a final touch of glamour to her exquisite ensemble.
