Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – ‘Fruitvale Station’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - 'Fruitvale Station' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Octavia Spencer attended the ‘Fruitvale Station’ photocall this afternoon during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals in France.

No prizes for guessing that she’s wearing Tadashi Shoji.

Not only because the Asian designer is her go-to guy, but also because her lace frock is distinctive of his style and his Spring 2013 and Fall 2012 collections, which feature several lacy confections.

Metallic gold Robert Clergerie ‘Querrye’ ankle boots completed her look.

I can’t wait to see what Tadashi has created for his muse this evening.

‘The Bling Ring’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

The Bling Ring Photocall


Emma Watson
was joined by her co-stars this afternoon for the Cannes Film Festival photocall for ‘The Bling Ring’ at the Palais des Festivals.

Claire Julien: Balmain are usually very particular about who they loan to, which is why we only see their pieces on the likes of Kate Bosworth, Rihanna and Zoe Saldana, so I was very surprised to see the young actress don a look from the French brand’s Spring 2013 collection. The white harlequin embroidered two-piece look, which slightly washes her out, was styled with white peep-toes.

Katie Chang: The young actress looked adorable in her Jill Stuart Fall 2013 striped dress paired with Coach ‘Dani’heels. You may remember that Solange Knowles wore a look from the same collection recently, but her version was modified to showcase a lot of boobage.

Taissa Farmiga: This frothy white tiered dress with black accessories is the most girlie look of the bunch. Some might consider this look too twee for the 18-year-old actress. While she makes it work, a part of me wishes this was sleeveless.

Sofia Coppola: As always, director Sofia Coppola looks effortlessly chic in a Louis Vuitton look I am guessing took her two minutes to rustle up. She looks like she has just wandered in from a morning stroll along the French Riviera.

Emma Watson In Christopher Kane – ‘The Bling Ring’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Emma Watson In Christopher Kane - 'The Bling Ring' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Emma Watson opened Day Two of Cannes Film Festival with a photocall for her latest movie, ‘The Bling Ring’.

The British star donned a British designer, wearing a maroon two-piece look with feather accents from the Christopher Kane Fall 2013 collection.

While this wasn’t a runway look, both the colour and feathered details are distinctive of this collection.

I love this look for the young actress; it’s very youthful and the short length is fitting to Emma’s signature style.

With one look down and one look to go, I’m already very excited about Emma’s Cannes adventure – sans those black pumps, of course.

Nicole Kidman In Alexander McQueen – Cannes Film Festival Jury Photocall

Nicole Kidman In Alexander McQueen - Cannes Film Festival Jury Photocall

Nicole Kidman attended the Jury Photocall for the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival this afternoon in France.

Having been announced as the face (or should that be feet) of Jimmy Choo’s Fall 2013 ad campaign, I wasn’t surprised that her Choos were the stars of this look.

The Australian actress wore a black Alexander McQueen Fall 2013 dress with a sculpted neckline and box-pleated sleeves paired with Jimmy Choo ‘Award’ grape-coloured suede pumps with a croc toe-cap.

Opting for a gold Omega timepiece, Nicole’s uber-chic look was completed with a side-swept ponytail tied with a black ribbon.

I have never been a fan of side ponytails on grown women, but the dress and shoes more than compensate.

Isla Fisher In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Isla Fisher In Dolce & Gabbana - 'The Great Gatsby' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

In contrast to her co-star, Isla Fisher wore a white summery look to Carey Mulligan’s all-black look for the Cannes Film Festival photocall this afternoon.

The French Riviera couldn’t have been a more idyllic location to rock this white Dolce & Gabbana sleeveless daisy dress.

I can’t say her black Roger Vivier peep-toes ignite my senses, but that bold-red lip does.

Glossy waves and a gorgeous smile completed her look.

Carey Mulligan In Balenciaga – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Carey Mulligan In Balenciaga - 'The Great Gatsby' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Carey Mulligan kicked off Cannes Film Festival this afternoon by attending a photocall for ‘The Great Gatsby’ at Palais des Festivals in France.

The British actress wore her second Balenciaga by Alexander Wang Fall 2013 look in a row following the Met Gala.

On this occasion she wore a very chic black jumpsuit featuring a circular beaded bodice with a bow accent, which she styled with Saint Laurent t-bar pumps.

Yes, she’s sticking to this minimalist approach to red carpet dressing for now, but maybe she’ll pull out all the stops for the premiere, which opens the festival officially this evening.

Makeup-wise, I see a touch more lip colour and kohl-rimmed eyes, which is more makeup than she’s worn in a while.

A simple chignon completed her look.

What are your expectations for Carey this evening?

Do you think the likes of Fan Bingbing outshine her at the premiere?
