After 12 days of eye candy, Cannes Film Festival has sadly come to an end.
Eva Longoria lived up to her ‘Eva the Diva’ tag which we gave her back in 2009. She may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but she lights up the Cannes red carpet like no other.
As I have listed my favourites day by day, I have just listed my top 3 from the event above.
2012 Cannes Film Festival Most Worn Designer – Roberto Cavalli
Roberto Cavalli outfitted the most ladies again this year. His special one-off pieces and stunning gowns from the archives seem to flourish during Cannes. It seems that they just belong on the Palais des Festivals.
Cannes Brand Ambassador – Kylie Minogue for Emilio Pucci
Kylie has been a long-time fan of Peter Dundas’ sexy Pucci dresses, so it was no surprise that she wore several of his pieces during Cannes.
Queen of Cannes 2012 – Diane Kruger
This was a no-brainer. I could have written this before the festival. As many of you said, we ran out of superlatives to describe how much we were in awe of how amazing Diane Kruger was for during Cannes Film Festival by Day 4. She started in couture and ended in couture; the only thing missing at the closing ceremony was her crown. The organisers will have a tough job finding someone to succeed her next year.
Honorable Mention – Freida Pinto
I wasn’t expecting anything from Freida Pinto. Be honest, you weren’t either. Even with her shakey shoe start, Freida dazzled on the red carpet in Atelier Versace, Ferragamo and Michael Angel.
Couturier of Cannes Film Festival 2011 – Atelier Versace
My personal highlight of Cannes 2012 was crossing two Atelier Versace gowns off my wish list. Jane Fonda, Freida Pinto, Jada Pinkett Smith, Milla Jovovich, Rose McGowan and Reese Witherspoon all donned Dontella’s designs. She started dressing a 74-year-old beauty and ended with a stunning maternity gown proving she knows how to dress every woman for every occasion.
