Elle Fanning In Prada – Prada Private Dinner

In the anticipation of seeing Nicole Kidman, Fan Bingbing (who’s been M.I.A. since the opening ceremony) and Sonam Kapoor, we totally under estimated the presence young Elle Fanning would have on Cannes Film Festival.

Her run has been simply flaw-free, and that was extended last night (May 22) at the Prada dinner.

Sophisticated whimsy is how I would describe this Spring 2017 look.

While there appears to be a lot going on with the feathers and retro accessories, the air of uncompromising cool makes this a BDOTW worthy look for me.

Blake Lively In Oscar de la Renta – American Ballet Theatre Spring 2017 Gala

While we’re disappointed that Blake Lively doesn’t appear to be heading to Cannes this year, she did make an appearance at the American Ballet Theatre Spring 2017 Gala on Monday (May 22) in New York City.

Displaying the feminine delicacy we love, Blake’s beautifully draped Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 gown is cut from an eye-catching neon citrine silk chiffon which is as sunny as the actress’ personality.

I love the turquoise Lorraine Schwartz earrings for and additional pop of colour, but I was kinda underwhelmed in the hair department as it feels a tad too casual for this look.

Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals provided the finishing touch.

Trophée Chopard Ceremony

A range of stars indulged in a range of sparkling looks at the Trophée Chopard Ceremony on Monday (May 22) as part of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Marion Cotillard: None shone more brightly than Marion who took my breath away in a Halpern Fall 2017 masterwork styled with a diamond collar necklace. I could gush on and on about the fantasy of the design’s radiant, colour-swirled paillettes, the unexpected mod edge of the pants, and the impossibly long, shimmering train. But, we should just let the look do the talking.

Isabelle Huppert In Gucci & Christian Dior Couture – ‘Happy End’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Flowy fashion statements have been Isabelle Huppert’s M.O. at the Cannes Film Festival, and that theme showed no sign of waning at the ‘Happy End’ photocall and premiere on Monday (May 22).

Photocall: I haven’t been impressed with Isabelle’s Cannes looks thus far, so this Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 gown was a welcome relief—not only for its vibrant print but also because it actually fit properly.

Premiere
: Unfortunately, this Christian Dior Spring 2017 Couture gown reversed the upward trend, as it was rather ill-conceived in its washed-out colour along with the age-inappropriate sheer skirt and silver platform pumps.

Sonam Kapoor In Elie Saab Couture – ‘The Killing Of A Sacred Deer’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Sonam Kapoor was sticking with Elie Saab for her second red carpet appearance for ‘The Killing Of A Sacred Deer’ Cannes Film Festival premiere this evening (May 22).

When I see her in this gold tulle embroidered Spring 2017 Couture gown I ask myself, “where is the fashion trailblazer who used take this festival by the scruff of the neck and shake things up?”

Her gown is absolutely stunning, don’t get me wrong.

It’s my favourite of the Elie Saab gowns so far, and one of the best from today; but I was expecting way, way more from Sonam so overall I feel a bit disappointed.

Sara Sampaio In Francesco Scognamiglio Couture – ‘The Killing Of A Sacred Deer’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Sara Sampaio was back on the red carpet for ‘The Killing Of A Sacred Deer’ Cannes Film Festival premiere this evening (May 22).

What we’ve learned about Francesco Scognamiglio’s Couture designs in the last 24 hours is that thongs appear to be mandatory.

Again, this is a well designed sheer lace gown with the feminine appeal heighten by the delicate ruffles, but who can take you seriously with your bare butt cheeks hanging out?

I can’t believe I have had to ask that question twice today. First with Rita Ora, and now with Sara.
