Elite model Lindsay Ellingson caused a social media fight between some fashionistas with her red carpet appearance at the Cannes Film Festival and showed that even elite models will have the occasional fashion faux pas (Instagram - May 18).
The gorgeous model wore a Ulyana Sergeenko haute couture dress which was very stylish and modern in the front but in the back revealed much of her underwear, in particular her bare cheek butts at the back and the response from fashionistas ranged from 'impressively daring' to it being a 'fashion fail'. Rare is it that an elite model such as Lindsay Ellingson would receive such mixed reviews but it also showed the difference between the elite models and the average model.
Many models after receiving such harsh public critiques on social media would find it difficult to forget the criticisms and be sensational in their next public appearance but she showed her toughness and intestinal fortitude with an exceptionally beautiful appearance in a Sophie Theallet gown at the Chopard Cannes party which reaffirmed her status as an elite model (Instagram - May 18).
The confidence she displayed in the gown which had a low v-cut in the front and high split leg showed two of the most important traits a model must possess if they want to be an elite model: incredible confidence in one's body which is often the product of much time in the gym and a very short memory when it comes to criticism.
The Cannes Film Festival is a place where reputations are often made and Lindsay Ellingson has shown herself to be not just a model of immense beauty but also one who is not afraid to 'push the boundaries' when it comes to fashion and responds to criticisms in the best way possible which is with scintillating fashion appearances.
