Sarah Michelle Gellar brought sleek style to the red carpet for the closing ceremony of the Canneseries International Festival. The television festival awarded the actress with the Icon Award for her extensive career, which she accepted during the ceremony.
While hitting the red carpet at the ceremony in Cannes, France, on Wednesday, Gellar wore a sharp all-black ensemble styled by Tara Swennen. The “Possession” actress‘ outfit featured a Christian Siriano dress with a plunging strapless neckline, complete with a gathered tiered hem with leaf accents and a large silk flower.
Gellar’s ensemble was glamorously finished with a thin diamond bracelet, drop earrings and rings by Candy Ice and Melinda Maria, as well as a smooth black satin Jimmy Choo clutch.
When it came to footwear, Swennen completed Gellar’s look with a sharp set of Christian Louboutin pumps. The “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star’s pair featured glossy black patent leather uppers with closed counters and sharp triangular toes. The style was finished with Louboutin’s signature red soles for a bright pop of color, as well as thin stiletto heels that totaled at least 4 inches in height for a soaring boost.
