I waited a week for a Valentino gown to grace the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, then two come along at once.
We haven’t seen Evangeline Lilly on the red carpet since the Emmy Awards, back in September 2008 but she hasn’t lost any of her sparkle.
We are more use to seeing The Lost actress covered in dirt running through a jungle, but she looked stunning opting for a backless lace Valentino Spring 2009 Couture embroidered gown with cut out panels.
The hem modified from the runway, but it doesn’t diminish her gown in anyway.
Hopefully we will get to see more from the newly appointed L’Oreal ambassador.
Many of you felt disappointed when Eva Longoria wore your favourite Atelier Versace gown on the red carpet last week.
I can now sympathize because I had booked marked this Armani Privé Spring 2009 black sequined dress for Cate Blanchett, but it was worn by Isabelle Huppert.
The shorten hem takes away some of the magic of this dress, but Isabelle was right to do this. The longer version would’ve suited Cate better, because she’s so tall and statuesque.
All that said I love neckline.
Judge Shu Qi arrived wearing bubble gum pink strapless Valentino Pre-Fall 2009 gown with a bow detail on her side.
That’s 4 Valentino gowns in 1 evening. I am not worthy.
Tan Zhuo opted for silver t-bar heels with her shimmering champagne Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 flapper dress.
Robin Wright Penn wore a black Narciso Rodriguez gown with a criss-cross detail on her back.
You may remember Jennifer Aniston wore this same dress in red,on the cover of the Vogue US December 2008 issue.
The forever elegant Kristin Scott Thomas arrived wearing a navy tiered Lanvin gown.
Her finishing touches of a chic up ‘do, drop earrings, and black clutch, perfected her look.
Asia Argento opted for a navy blue tiered strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with a stunning necklace.
I’m on the fence with Michelle Yeoh strapless nude Roberto Cavalli gown.
I’m just not sure if all that embroidered detail on the bust is too busy for such a neutral gown.
Laetitia Hallyday wore a fabulous Dolce & Gabbana tulle mermaid hem gown, unfortunately we have seen this gown too many times before.
