    I thought Sonam Kapoor was beautiful. Her Anamika Khanna dress was stunning. At first I thought she might have been wearing a vintage Chanel. It had that classical timeless appeal about it. She gets a 10 on 10 for all her looks this year. Queen Of Cannes.
    Best Dressed Male would be James McAvoy, and the Red Carpet Designer of Cannes should go to Elie Saab, never fails to wow.

    Sonam Kapoor. Final! Then, Blake and Cate.

    Red Carpet Designer Of Cannes – Armani Privé
    Queen of Cannes – Sonam Kapoor
    Least Favourite Look – Karlie Kloss in Valentino
    Best Dressed Male – James McAvoy

    FC thank you for your hard work on a magnificent coverage of Cannes. Even though there were many nice looks, it was still a bit let down compared to the past few years. Nice but missing the WOW moment.

    Jessica chastain, cate blanchett, Frieda pinto, Natasha poly are all contenders for the Queen of Cannes title. But in all fairness, Sonam Kapoor has earned the title and is more worthy of it than anyone else. She stood out and looked extremely gorgeous in all 3 looks. Other representatives from her country were good too, but she had that extra oomph or likeability factor in all her looks. Plus she’s so beautiful. Extremely gorgeous face she has

    For me queen of Cannes was Sonam who shone throughout the festival rocking all the 3 looks.Marion ‘s look was the least favorite look for me.Amongst males i voted for Matt Smith .

    Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive was my favorite look, but since she wasn’t listed I voted for Sonam’s fantastic Elie Saab ballgown. Cate is my queen of Cannes, though.
    Elie Saab is my favorite designer, although Gucci and Armani also did amazingly.
    Karlie wins (?) for least-favorite,
    and Ryan Gosling gets best male.

    Cate was really who stood out for me, though. She was a vision the entire time. Sonam did well, too, and Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Blake Lively, and Jessica Chastain also stand out in memory as giving great looks.

    Amazing coverage, as always, FC! It’s been a delight.

      I put Cate as a write-in for best dressed.

        I actually went back and did that too because she deserved it! 😀

    It can only be Cate in Armani Prive for me. It was BEYOND, it’s at the top of my BDOTY list, I’m completely awestruck.

    Blake, Cate, Rosie, and Jessica certainly acquitted themselves beautifully during the festival. And I was happy to see the poll include the relatively unknown Jess Weixler, who did so well on the big stage.

    But for me the ladies from India (Sonam, Aishwarya, and Freida) reigned supreme. The only question is which of the two best should be crowned queen.

    Aishwarya has that incredible regal presence and is beyond beautiful — yet I am giving the crown to Sonam Kapoor. She had three gorgeous and very distinct looks. Two of them ( the Anamika Khanna and the black Elie Saab) would be in my top 3 looks for the festival and the other (blue Elie Saab) would be in my top ten.

    As to which specific look I’d rate number one, I don’t know. My personal favorite is the Anamika Khanna but, considering the venue, I’m inclined to vote for the go-big-or-go-home black gown.

    For designer I voted for Atelier Versace. The Gucci Premiere gowns worn by Blake and Rosie were great, and Elie Saab made a nice showing, especially with Sonam Kapoor’s presentations. But there’s no denying that Jessica Chastain’s glorious blue gown and Uma Thurman’s brilliant yellow one made a huge impact on a red carpet dominated by blacks and neutrals.

      I also vote Sonam for the Queen. She was giving us moments – vintage there and a taste of traditional there – there was a sense of styling and creativity to her looks, all very well executed, as opposed to just looking drop-dead gorgeous in a great gown (like Aishwarya for ex.). Blake was my other option for the Queen. Cate’s only premiere look, unfortunately, didn’t turn out to be the magnificent moment I was hoping it would be.

      Also the same choice of the designer, thought Atelier Versace did very well, some good, solid looks from the designer – Jessica, Uma, Hillary.

      • Marybeth May 27, 2014 at 22:35 #

        Yes, Hillary Swank!
        I’m glad you specifically mentioned that.
        The blue and yellow gowns grabbed my attention so much that I almost forgot how fine that Versace look was too.

    I chose Blake for best dressed. Pretty easy even though Cate is always beautiful.

  14. Clemence May 27, 2014 at 16:10 #

    I was confused between Blake lively and sonam kapoor … Went with sonam in the end as she us showed something different than the usual gowns we see..

    Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé! Flawless

    • asherlev1 May 27, 2014 at 21:19 #


      And Cate for Queen of Cannes!

      • Quinn May 27, 2014 at 23:22 #

        I agree!!!!

  16. Charlotte May 27, 2014 at 15:54 #

    It was hard to choose between Rosie in Pucci and Blake Lively in Gucci black & white. I went for Blake at the end, more glamourous, more Cannes !
