Icelandic singer and actress Elín Hall made a stunning debut at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival last week, where her new movie, “When the Light Breaks,” was shortlisted in the ‘Un Certain Regard’ category. Hall portrays the lead character of Una, a young student dealing with grief while harboring a secret.

For such a special occasion, Hall enlisted the help of celebrity stylist Brillant Nyansago and the iconic French fashion house of Chanel to curate her red carpet looks. The duo chose two striking outfits: a whimsical postcard-print dress for the daytime photocall and a dazzling gold gown for the evening premiere.

Nyansago shared insights into the fashion selection process, revealing that Hall and himself were drawn to Chanel from the start. The stamp-printed cape for the photocall exuded a sense of playfulness and captured the essence of the French Riviera. The premiere gown, a daring golden lace dress with a plunging neckline, resonated with Hall’s fearless nature and confident presence on the red carpet.

Delving into his approach, Nyansago discussed how he researched Hall’s character’s fashion narrative in the film, aiming to create a distinct departure from the dark and heavy themes of the movie. Embracing a contrast in style, Nyansago found inspiration in breaking away from Una’s character and exploring a new sartorial direction for Hall.

Throughout the styling process, Nyansago highlighted Hall’s involvement and ability to embody the essence of each outfit effortlessly. Describing Hall’s personal style as grounded, bohemian, and timeless, Nyansago emphasized her self-assured approach to fashion and dressing for herself.

When it comes to dressing clients, Nyansago expressed a passion for supporting emerging designers and showcasing their talent. His ultimate goal at events like the Cannes Film Festival is not just about creating a visual impact but also about allowing his clients’ stories to shine through impactful fashion choices.

In conclusion, Nyansago’s collaboration with Elín Hall at the Cannes Film Festival exemplified a harmonious blend of elegance, creativity, and storytelling through fashion, leaving a lasting impression on the red carpet.
