The good thing is god actually answers my prayers.
I asked for Valentino at Cannes, and in the space of 48 hours we have seen 4 stunning gowns take to the red carpet.
The bad thing is with Rachel Weisz wearing a very similar dress last night, this blue ombre high neck Valentino Fall 2009 gown which Evangeline Lilly is wearing gives me a huge case of de ja vu.
This was one of my favourite Valentino collections since the master himself left, I wish she’d picked something else.
All that said, it is a beautiful gown.
NO, No, no, no.
That make-up doesn’t work with that stunning Atelier Versace Spring 2009 gown, which is a shame because Eva Herzigova looks amazing from the neck down.
Eva wears the same gown which Donatella Versace wore just 8 days ago, with Chopard chandelier gold earrings.
Despite loving this Festival, their are so many re-runs.
Rachida Brakni aka Mrs Cantona, arrived with her husband, Eric Cantona wearing a pale pink Sonia Rykiel Spring 2009 dress.
The floor-length halter dress was adorned with feathers on the skirt and appears to be less transparent than it was on the runway.
I loved this dress on the runway, and I’m glad it translated well onto the red carpet.
She looks magnificent.
Grace, beauty, class and elegance = Hilary Swank.
The rise and fall hems were prevalent in Christian Dior and Nina Ricci’s collections, and I go back and forth as to whether I like the style but I can’t fault anything on Hilary.
The gunmetal grey is a great colour for her, the sweeping updo is so classic, the multi-colour pearl Chopard necklace is just enough jewelery, and her matching Swarovski clutch and Sergio Rossi sandals complete the look.
For me she’s breath-taking.
Model Doutzen Kroes gives us yet ANOTHER re-run.
She is wearing a full-skirted printed Azzedine Alaia grey dress, which Zoe Saldana wore to the London Star Trek premiere last month.
Her dress was paired with black Azzedine Alaia leather lace-up shoe-boots, but I don’t think this is a good look for Doutzen at all.
