Cannes Film Festival 2013

The 2013 Cannes Film Festival finally kick-starts today. If you are like me, this is your highlight of the year; it’s like the Oscars, the Met Gala and Christmas rolled into one.

Nicole Kidman is one of the jurors, taking over from Diane Kruger who surpassed all our very high expectations last year. We are hoping for the same level of success from Mrs Urban.

The L’Oreal girls will be travelling in from all parts of the globe. We should be looking out for Eva Longoria, who always brings it hard at this event. Fan Bing Bing will hopefully be working a traditional interpretation of a classic Asian design, as she always does at the opening ceremony. Aishwarya Rai, Jane Fonda, Cheryl Cole, Freida Pinto, Doutzen Kroes and Sonam Kapoor are expected as well.
Remember to keep refreshing throughout the day, as I will be live blogging over the next 12 days.

As there will be many gowns each day, we’ll be voting on your Best Dressed of the Day.

If you need a refresher as to what we can expect from this epic festival, take a look back at last year’s event.

Check out my Cannes wish list below, which includes Stéphane Rolland, Giambattista Valli, Valentino and, of course, the maestro Elie Saab.

Last year 3 of my picks hit the red carpet, I hope more from my list make it this time.
