Jackie Appiah in Jil at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival

Ghanaian powerhouse Jackie Appiah arrived at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival in a Jil traditional kente clothe strapless orange, black and green number! Jackie was one of the handful of stars who attended the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival. I love the way she celebrated her beautiful heritage by rocking a hand beaded creation straight from her native homeland. This is HUGE news! I’m waiting on another Nollywood superstar to light up another major Hollywood red carpet!

This however is NOT the first time Jackie has supported the Ghanaian fashion label, Jil. If you can recall, I asked Jackie who was she wearing at another major red carpet event. She wore another stunning Jil design with a white Louis Vuitton clutch at the 2011 F.A.C.E. List Awards run by Face 2 Face Africa!

Love what you see? Check out the new Jil collection which was shown at ARISE Fashion Week in Lagos, Nigeria this past March!

Cultural Presence looks at how celebrities and everyday people wear African fashion straight from the runway.
