2011 Cannes Film Festival

After waiting 364 days, the 2011 Cannes Film Festival is finally here.

I was very excited to learn that Uma Thurman is one of the jurors, which means we are guaranteed glamour for the next 12 days.

Speaking of glamour, we’ll also get to see the L’Oreal girls rock the red carpet.

Eva Longoria, Fan Bing Bing, Cheryl Cole and Aishwarya Rai should be attending, but I’m also looking forward to seeing the newbie’s; Gwen Stefani and Sonam Kapoor.

I’m looking forward to gowns galore from Alberta Ferretti, Versace, Valentino, Giorgio Armani, Emilio Pucci, Gucci Premiere, Roberto Cavalli Couture and of course Elie Saab.

Whilst we wait for official unveiling of the jurors, take a look back at last year’s event which saw us fall in love with Fan Bing Bing and Gucci Premiere.

Remember to keep refreshing throughout the day, as I will be live blogging over the next 12 days.

As we’re are going to be overwhelmed with gowns, we’ll be voting on your Best Dressed of the Day.

    I am SO excited!!! I have been dying to see some dresses from the Atelier Versace Spring 2011 collection on the red carpet, so I really hope we can see some at Cannes :)
    I am also so excited for so many Best Dressed polls!
    Thank-you so much for covering all these amazing events FC – you have by far the best fashion site I have ever come across!
    <3

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2011 at 10:04 #

      Thanks Kath. I’m praying for some Atelier Versacex

  9. Catherine May 11, 2011 at 10:27 #

    Can’t wait..love reading your coverage :)

    One of the L’Oreal girls most likely won’t be there..Evangeline Lilly. She’s heavily pregnant so i’m thinking she probably won’t be attending.

    FC,

    Even though I have been an avid reader of your blog for about 3yrs,I hardly ever comment.

    I would like to say a BIG thank u to u for ur consistency and dedication, You are an inspiration and evidence that hardwork always pays.

    Am also looking forward to the next 12days and anticipating amazing fashion at Cannes.No one provides analysis quite like u.

    With love from Nigeria,
    B

      Thank you Bee.

      I’m glad you have chosen this moment for your first comment :)

      I really appreciate what you’ve said as I strive to work really hard and make this your one and only stop for celebrity fashion.

      FCx

      • Ali May 11, 2011 at 11:50 #

        It is definitely my one and only stop for celebrity fashion. I would die without this site

        I’m sooo excited for the coverage, I hope Angelina does not disappoint and wears a colour (she normally does in Cannes)

  11. Alina May 11, 2011 at 11:48 #

    Elie Saab .. old stuff or new stuff… I just want to see lots of Elie Saab’s.

    • Alina May 11, 2011 at 17:34 #

    i can’t wait to watch Fan Bingbing’s show .OMG
    i’m so excited.

  16. Alfie May 11, 2011 at 17:05 #

    FYI, she may not be a L’Oreal newbie (I think she’s actually their longest lasting model) but Beyonce will be part of the L’Oreal girls team this year. Those 2 weeks we saw her in Paris were not for nothing,

  17. Meg May 11, 2011 at 18:14 #

    How do you know Sonam Kapoor, FC?

    • Fashion Critic May 11, 2011 at 18:25 #
