Elizabeth Debicki In Valentino Haute Couture – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Elizabeth Debicki joined Sonam Kapoor and Thandie Newton for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ this evening (May 15).

The first thing I noted when I saw Elizabeth in this Valentino Spring 2018 Haute Couture floral gown, was how this is a new silhouette for her.

With her gorgeous statuesque frame, she tends to stick to more slender gowns, much like her Miu Miu look from the last night.

Are you enjoying this rare bohemian romantic moment from Elizabeth as much as I am?

Thandie Newton In Vivienne Westwood Couture for The Green Carpet Challenge – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Following the photocall, I was excited to see what Thandie Newton would be serving up at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ this evening (May 15).

The British actress wore a custom Vivienne Westwood Couture gown, printed with images of Thandie’s personal Star Wars figurine collection.

Each character was photographed by Christian Hogstedt and was layered over the iconic Vivienne Westwood ‘Absence of Roses’ print.

The print was created especially as an homage to Thandie’s first appearance in the motion-picture franchise.

If you were thinking, “this is just another standard Westwood dress,” hopefully the back story with encourage you to look again at this gown with fresh eyes.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

If you thought Jennifer Connelly would break her stride and do something different, like a tulle ball gown, for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ this evening (May 15), you were in dreamland.

The actress was of course in Louis Vuitton, wearing a modified look from the Fall 2018 collection.

Some might regards this as ‘not-Cannes-worthy,’ but I love how it felt so right for the Star Wars premiere.

It has a futuristic vibe, and I have a sneaky feeling it was deliberately selected as it mildly resembles the iconic Stormtrooper.

So for that, I think it was a smart move. As a gown this wouldn’t have worked.

Sonam Kapoor In Vera Wang Bridal – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Sonam Kapoor was back on the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ this evening (May 15).

If you are expecting me to swoon over this Vera Wang Bridal 2019 gown, I feel like I already did…three days ago…when Sofia Boutella wore a similar dual-colour look from the same collection.

They are by no means the same dress, but the sentiment is the same.

But familiarity isn’t the biggest problem here, it’s the colour.

The nude hue is pretty yet feels so bland at the same time. Had the yellow been the more prominent colour of this story, I would be left breathless.

Hopefully Sonam will return to this and this kinda form for Cannes 2019.

Thandie Newton In Valentino – ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Thandie Newton captured the breezy spirit of the Cannes Film Festival at the ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ photocall on Tuesday (May 15).

The majority were delighted by her Richard Quinn floral confection at the Virgin TV BAFTA Television Awards and I’m hoping this Valentino Fall 2018 look is as well received.

It’s the sort of ensemble that demonstrates how the daywear at the festival can be just as striking as the dramatic evening gowns.

With its vivid print and soft shapes, it has a carefree glamorous sentiment and her styling played perfectly into it.

2018 NBCUniversal Upfront Presentation

The 2018 NBCUniversal Upfront presentation took place at the Rockefeller Center on Monday (May 14) in New York City, with a mixture of sexy, summery and chic styles.

Jenna Dewan: The ‘World of Dance’ host served up no surprises with her sparkling mini from her favoured designer, David Koma. Taking some styling inspo from the runway, and not Kendall Jenner (I will eventually let that go), Jenna added a bra rather than line the sheer bodice or go commando.

Christina Hendricks: Spring has finally sprung for Christina who tends to favour all black looks. The actress worked a wrap silhouette, detailed with stripes, flowers and frilled trims for a cutesy, kitsch finish, but it’s the Charlotte Olympia ‘I Carried A Watermelon embellished satin clutch which is the real star of the show here. I’m sure some might be put off by the twins. But she can either hide them, or celebrate them. I happy she’s gone for the latter.

Mandy Moore: The one person who you expected to wear colour at this event was Mandy Moore. Instead she went simple and chic in Altuzarra’s ‘Maxine’ dress from the Fall 2018 collection.
