Korean actresses attending the Cannes Film Festival are drawing the media spotlight for their fashion styles, from earrings to dresses.
Jeon Do-yeon, 41, the first Korean to serve as a jury member at the 67th international film festival, grabbed the eyes of global fans with a “clever” dress style.

At a photo call held for the members of the jury last week, Jeon wore a Chanel white lace dress with unbalanced earrings. Her light makeup added to the style of loveliness and innocence. 


Later in the day, however, the Korean jury member showed up with a sexy off-shoulder black dress that contrasted with her earlier angel-like appearance. The see-through in the arms and waist part of the dress stressed the feminine and elegant style.

The Versace black piece is only available for VIP customers, sources said. It was not originally made for sales purposes, they added.

Van Cleef & Arpels Isabella earrings also enhanced the classy style of Jeon. The earrings, which were shaped with 16.37 Carat Marquise Cut and 2.67 Carat Baguette Cut Diamonds, reportedly take more than 400 hours to produce per pair. Security guards accompanied the actress to ensure the safety of the high-end accessories.

Song Hye-kyo, 32, who was invited to the festival to promote the Chinese film “The Crossing,” also attracted her fans with a girly white dress and simple earrings. 


The other Korean actress, Bae Doo-na, 34, walked on the red carpet with a long, dark-green, lace-patterned dress, alluring fans with a feminine style. Bae arrived in Cannes to attend the premiere of “Foxcatcher.”
