Fan Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Fan Bingbing took an elegant turn at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts on Wednesday (May 17).

By wearing a gown from the Elie Saab Couture Spring 2017 Couture Collection, the star ensured she would make a elegant and feminine turn on the red carpet.

While this ice blue color regularly reads as cheap in different fabrics and on different people, Fan avoids both, and simply looks fresh and seasonally-appropriate.

The built-in capelet is a modern and fierce addition to a classically ethereal look, but I do miss the jewels featured on the runway. Fan’s more delicate diamond pieces get lost on the dress, versus popping like the chunky gold items seen on the runway.

Otherwise, I love this look. Do you agree?

Jessica Chastain In Alexander McQueen – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Also gracing the red carpet of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Ismael’s Ghosts on Wednesday (May 17), was Jessica Chastain.

The star wore a stunningly detailed Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2017 gown that held its own surrounded by a sea of fashionable moments.

While the intricately embroidered velvet bodice is certainly the talking point of this piece, what I can’t seem to tear my eyes from is the bottom of the bodice–the lines are so unique and so perfectly placed on Jessica’s legs, it is simply masterful design and tailoring work.

The actress opted for a slightly less sheer skirt than the lookbook version, which was tasteful and smart for the occasion, and every single carefully thought out styling element from her dazzling diamond and ruby collar necklace to her ruby lips and manicure are divine.

Julianne Moore In Givenchy Couture – ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

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

Taking a cue from the carpet itself, Julianne wore a Givenchy Couture gown in a deep red hue.

If Cannes isn’t about glamorous fashion moments that remain in our minds forever, I don’t know what event is, and Julianne certainly delivered with a look that is worth remembering!

I actually let out a little gasp when I saw this gown–the multiple types of feathering and the cape detailing off the shoulder make it an absolutely work of art.

A low-slung chignon and equally as artistic Chopard earrings complete a truly inspiring look.

Evan Rachel Wood In Altuzarra – 2017 Met Gala

Evan Rachel Wood attended the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The ‘Westworld’ actress wore an Altuzarra pantsuit with classic black pumps and clutch.

This pantsuit is cool. First and foremost, I love that it’s pants–An Evan Rachel signature, and a fun change of pace for the evening. I also easy it looks to wear, despite the detailed beading on the bodice. Of course, a train with pants is always a fun fashion treat, and while I actually might like the bodice a bit more if it weren’t asymmetrical, I’m not going to nitpick this lovely look.

And then we get to the beauty side of things. I love going for it when it comes to drama and themes. I really do, but unfortunately, the only thing it seems that Evan Rachel went for was a campy Halloween costume.

The over-the-top eye and brow makeup in addition to the hair color doesn’t read edgy to me. It read DIY gone wrong.

Am I missing a really fabulous beauty point, or do you agree that that hair and makeup just aren’t working?

Léa Seydoux In Louis Vuitton – 2017 Met Gala

Léa Seydoux walked the blue carpet at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The French actress wore a Louis Vuitton gown that

I appreciate this from a fashion standpoint. The lace panels in the two front slits are creative and a breath of fresh air with such a heavy look. I love the nod to the 90s with the ‘tank over a shirt’ look, and this print is nothing, if not eye-catching. Yet, I’m still having a hard time with it.

At the end of the day, this simply isn’t flattering on Léa, and that is the most important element to any item of clothing!

So: Fashion forward or fashion flounder?

Brie Larson In Chanel – 2017 Met Gala

Brie Larson looks regal at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

The actress wore a Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 gown with gold peep-toed sandals.

The detailing on this gown is the stuff of fashion dreams. Brie looks like a million fashion bucks, and I sure she feels like it, too.

I’m equally as smitten with her silver-rimmed smokey eyes and deeply side-parted old Hollywood waved updo.

But here’s a question: Is this stunning gown enough to get her on Best Dressed lists for this night? Or are there simply too many other, more dramatic options?
