Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz marked her Cannes debut with a chic couture moment
Attending a famous event like the annual Cannes Film Festival can be daunting, but for Italian-American model and actress Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz, the pressure was added. When Lutz attended his movie premiere final cut (Cut!) yesterday was her first time seeing the project in its entirety, with a full audience by her side, no less. “I was very nervous and excited at the same time,” says Lutz vogue. “I knew the Palais would have been filled with artists I love and admire, so I felt the pressure. Seeing herself on the big screen, she remembered one of her favorite scenes to shoot. “The sequence shot at the beginning was such a challenge for me, and I think for the whole cast and crew,” she says, without spoiling it.
Considering Cannes is as much about the glitzy red carpet as it is the movies, Lutz also felt compelled to pull off a strong look. “I wanted something that would represent me and make me feel comfortable at the same time,” says Lutz. “I wanted the look to be modern, chic and with a rock touch.” To achieve all of these fashion points, she chose a silk tulle dress from Chanel‘s Spring 2022 couture collection, which had delicate embroidery work on the top. “I loved that the silk tulle was fully painted and embroidered, and the color gradient on the bottom of the dress,” says Lutz. “The dress took 178 hours to make – it’s amazing to put in all the work that goes into making such an amazing dress!” She also completed the ensemble with high jewelry pieces from Chanel, which “added a final rock ‘n’ roll touch to the look,” says Lutz.
While the actor certainly enjoyed dressing up for the evening (and she will continue to do so this week), his favorite part of the whole Cannes experience so far has been returning to cinemas and seeing the reactions. from the live public to the various works. For the premiere of his film, it was particularly touching. “The audience was so alive,” says Lutz. “It was so emotional, I didn’t expect it.” After Cannes, you can expect the star to get back to work on a number of new projects. “I’m currently shooting an Italian series for Netflix about Brigands, based in Italy in the 1800s,” says Lutz. “And I’m soon going to shoot a project that really excites me – a feature film called Magpie directed by Sam Yates, starring Daisy Ridley and Shazad Latif. We feel many other carpets in Cannes in its future.
