Emily Blunt In Stella McCartney – ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Emily Blunt In Stella McCartney - ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Emily Blunt took her place on the red carpet tonight as the star of ‘Sicario’ for the film’s premiere during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

It may not be as colourful as I expected, but when it came to being drop-dead gorgeous and ultra glamorous, she nailed it.

Despite Stella McCartney’s work often coming in for some criticism by some of you, the British designer can rustle up a stunning gown – and this is one of them.

Dazzling and fit to perfection to highlight Emily’s gorgeous figure, I am very much in awe.

The admiration continues to her emerald Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie earrings, which were all the pop of colour this look needed.

Araya A. Hargate In Ashi Studio Couture – ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Sicario" Premiere - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Araya A. Hargate attended the premiere of ‘Sicario’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

Upon seeing the Thai actress glide down the red carpet like a beautiful swan I said to myself, ‘This is more like it.’

Not slit to the thigh, not bedazzled, not a bedsheet pretending to be a gown, this Ashi Studio Spring 2015 Couture gown, with its delicate embroidery and feather-festooned hemline, is what I have been craving at Cannes.

Drama, glamour and a touch of originality.

This should rank in my top 10 for this festival.

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé – ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett attended the premiere of ‘Sicario’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

As it wasn’t her movie, perhaps Cate made an effort to take a backseat when she opted to wear this Armani Privé Spring 2015 black gown.

The issue is when you are Cate Blanchett, there are no backseats to be had –this subdued offering still screams elegance.

Some might not be wowed, but this understated look still grabbed my attention.

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton - ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Alicia Vikander attended the premiere of ‘Sicario’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

As one of the ambassadors for Louis Vuitton, I was not surprised to see the Swedish actress donning a look from their Resort 2016 collection.

‘Resort 2016? Already?’ I hear you cry.

Well, considering nearly every piece from the Fall 2014 collection onwards has been worn, Resort is all that’s left which is fresh and new. And that is exactly what Alicia is bringing to the table.

The look is chic and modern, while making a quiet impact on this busy red carpet.

Petra Nemcova In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Sicario" Premiere - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Petra Nemcova attended the premiere of ‘Sicario’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

I would’ve said that this Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture gown was quite a princess moment for Petra, but I don’t know many princesses who would wear a gown with such a deep plunge.

It really should’ve been modified to keep the twins under control because at present they look like a wardrobe malfunction ready to happen.

On the plus side, this is one of the few season-appropriate gowns we have seen during Cannes.

Emma Stone In Brook Collection & Ulyana Sergeenko Couture – ‘Aloha’ Photocall & Premiere

Emma Stone In Brook Collection &  Ulyana Sergeenko Couture - 'Aloha' Photocall & Premiere

Emma Stone attended the ‘Aloha’ photocall and premiere at Soho Hotel in London, England on Saturday (May 16).

Photocall: Posing with Bradley Cooper at her side, the actress wore a Brook Collection Fall 2015 beige sweater top and pleated skirt with matching Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals that had nothing of the vibrant ‘aloha’ spirit in it. There is minimalism and then there is boring, and I’m stifling a yawn right now.

Premiere: Her second look was far more inspiring, as she donned a Ulyana Sergeenko Spring 2015 Couture floral-printed dress, shaped by a mock peplum. Some may fault the length, but I was more put off by the white colour of her Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Follies’ pumps. Her coral-pink lip redeemed the feminine look.

Virginie Ledoyen attended the ‘Inside Out’ premiere during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Monday (May 18) in Cannes, France.

The French actress swept the red carpet wearing a Georges Hobeika Fall 2015 blood-red gown.

While the gown doesn’t exactly rewrite the rules of eveningwear, it is incredibly enchanting.
