Karolina Kurkova was one of the few who opted to go short at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival this evening.

The model ambassador for this event wore a Chanel Fall 2010 Couture dress.

Her heavily embellished halter dress was paired with gold Jimmy Choo ‘New Ontario’ sandals.

She took inspiration from the runway by adding heavy accessories such as a gold box clutch and a stack of pearl bracelets.
