Jessica Chastain In Prada – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes

Jessica Chastain looked lovely wearing Prada to the amfAR Gala Cannes, held on Thursday (May 25) during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

While this dress has a lovely cut and fits beautifully, it is clearly worn to be just a backdrop for the central piece here, the necklace.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a backward necklace on a major red carpet, and since I’m a fan of the trend, I’m thrilled to see it.

The styling is also rather inspired here, because the pearls, tassel and rose-detailing of this Piaget necklace are neither fashion-forward or particularly noteworthy on their own, but by simply turning the piece around, it has a very special red carpet moment all to itself.

With so little happening head-on, Jessica’s makeup was particularly important, and her brown smokey eye and pink glossy lip were the perfect choice to add some interest to all those front-facing photos.

Paz Vega In Redemption – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes

Paz Vega took our breath away at the amfAR Gala Cannes, held on Thursday (May 25) during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

The actress wore a Fall 2017 Redemption gown with styling accents of gold and red.

As usual, Ms. Vega does not disappoint. She carries the color, bead detailing, sash and skin-baring elements of this gown exquisitely.

And I have to say, I’ve never seen anyone get as much variety out of a short haircut as Paz and her stylists do. This sleek, 20s bob-esque style is creative and simply perfect for the look.

And something about this look is just begging for a pop of red, so I love that she obliged that style need with the lip and earrings.

Are you as completely mesmerized as I am with this look?

Stacy Martin In Prada – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes

Stacy Martin attended the amfAR Gala Cannes, held on Thursday (May 25) during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

For the occasion, she wore a metallic Prada gown with no accouterments.

At first glance, I thought how bare Stacy looked, but after taking a moment to digest her look, I absolutely love that she left all necklaces and bracelets at home, and just let her gown do the talking.

The silvery mint color is delightful, and of course that bodice-lining beading is all the jewels she needs.

I’m also a huge fan of the beauty decisions made here. The simple, slightly undone blowout is perfectly effortless, and the contrast of the dark berry lips and gold highlighted eyes are masterful with the light-colored gown.

Eva Longoria In Elie Saab – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes

Eva Longoria attended the amfAR Gala during the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 25).

The actress wore a beautifully crafted Elie Saab gown with diamond jewels to accent.

After a stunning first turn at Cannes, Eva has put forward two very disappointing looks, and I’m afraid this one is only slightly better in my book.

It pains me to say it about an Elie Saab gown, but this just isn’t fabulous on Eva. The gown itself is stunning, but it makes Eva look boxy. Perhaps if the bodice was altered a bit, it would help?

Her hair isn’t helping matters, either. Those ultra-curled tendrils are very prom, and very wrong.

Am I being too harsh, or do you agree?

Sara Sampaio In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Sara Sampaio attended the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ on Wednesday (May 17).

For the occasion, she wore a dramatic Zuhair Murad Couture gown from the Spring 2017 collection.

The plunging neckline and dramatic bell shape of the gown only amplify the intricate detail work of the beading. And of course, how can you not note that the beading is in the shape of fireworks? This is definitely a stunning fashion explosion on the red carpet.

I do however miss the peplum detail from the runway–I understand why she opted against it, since it could have come across bulky and awkward for real life wear, but since Cannes is a place for drama and risks, I wish she would have ‘gone there’!

Diamond jewels and a long, loose braid keep this look equal parts elegant and modern, and I’m a fan!

Deepika Padukone In Marchesa – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Deepika Padukone made a moody appearance at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ on Wednesday (May 17).

The ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’ actress wore a Marchesa Fall 2017 gown with a sweeping train.

I am really struck by the color of this gown. It’s so inky black with just a touch of purple infused into it, and reads so moody and unique on the carpet.

I am always a fan of the drama of Marchesa, and I love how they added a dose of sexiness into this dress with the crystal-incrusted under layers.

I’m slightly surprised to see Deepika wearing her hair down with such a formal look, but she is following a trend we’re seeing this year with slightly more undone beauty looks, and it really does work for her.
