2010 Cannes Film Festival: “Robin Hood” Premiere – Aishwarya Rai In Elie Saab Couture

Thanks to Aishwarya Rai we didn’t have to wait long to see Elie Saab on the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival.

The Indian model/actress glided down the red carpet wearing a stunning blue Elie Saab Spring 2010 Couture gown.

I love the scalloped details all over the gown which was accented by velvet floral buds.

These buds also appear on the chiffon detail which drape off her shoulders.

If I would critique one thing it would be her hair. It had a bit too much volume for my liking.

Other than that she ticks all the boxes and looks absolutely fabulous, which is easy in an Elie Saab gown.

2009 International Indian Film Academy

The beautiful Indian actress Sonam Kapoor wore 80s Thierry Mugler black one shouldered dress to one of the many events during the International Indian Film Festival held in Macau.

She paired the dress with a gold fish shaped pendent necklace, Louboutin heels and a Ferragamo clutch.

Sushmita Sen showed-off her fabulous figure in a body-hugging black Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 dress.

The dress has been modified slightly from the runway.  The cut-outs have been filled with a sheer panel.

Black strappy sandals and a gold cuff complete her look.

For another event Sonam Kapoor wore an intricate silver satin toga designed by Anamika Khanna with a long flared skirt.

Her look was complete with a Jimmy Choo clutch.

Aishwarya Rai exuded style wearing a Nachiket Barve Fall 2008 taffeta dress with a sheer yoke, textured bodice and pleated skirt.

She accessorized with black peep toe heels, diamond drop earrings, a gold bangle and a glittery silver clutch.

Who Wore Christian Dior Better? Aishwarya Rai, Gisele Bundchen or Bae Doo-na

Despite Cannes Film Festival bringing us some of the best red carpet looks I’ve been craving for all year, we have seen many re-runs.

Korean actress Bae Doo-Na was the third celebrity to wear the strapless red satin Christian Dior Spring 2009 gown, which has a draped detail on the hip.

She wore it when she arrived at the Air Doll Premiere during Cannes Film Festival last week, with a gorgeous red and gold clutch.

Gisele Bundchen was slightly over-dress when she took to the stage at the launch of SKY HDTV in Brazil last month.

Aishwarya Rai was the first to wear this dress nearly a year ago, to the 2008 International Indian Film Academy Awards, whilst carrying a silver jeweled clutch.

Despite Gisele wearing this gown to a slighty informal event, she simply glows, and she’s wearing the least make-up.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – "Spring Fever" Premiere

Elizabeth Banks has really upped the ante for her first Cannes Film Festival.

No disrespect to her, but I didn’t know she had this in her. She’s seriously blowing me away.

The red Armani Prive gown, was stunning, but then you shouldn’t go wrong with Couture.

This Andrew GN Fall 2009 navy sequined gown is outstanding. Again she is channeling old Hollywood, and the hair is the similar to last night, but I can’t find a single fault.

Love the bare neck, the simple black rose cuffs on her wrists, and the Daniel Swarovski clutch.

If felt slightly underwhelmed by Aishwarya Rai’s white Cavalli gown yesterday, but I guess she was only warming up because she brought her A game tonight, looking dazzlingly radiant wearing a one-shouldered baby blue Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture gown.

Thank god for Cannes. Only day two I loving it more than the Oscars and Costume Institute Gala red carpet looks combined.

Tan Zhuo arrived wearing a white Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 strapless gown.

I’m so glad that Tan decided to wear this gown, because mostly the shorter dresses made the red carpet from this collection.

But my problem with Tan’s gown, is that it’s lost all it pizazz, as the ruffled skirt is so flat and lifeless to how it was presented on the runway.

French actress Julie Gayet is very elegant in her black satin YSL Resort 2009 gown. A black velvet bow, and Boucheron earrings complete the sophisticated look.

Actress Maria Jurado wore a simple black Fendi strapless dress, with a black belt from the Spring 2009 collection.

She teamed her dress with taupe Fendi bow-front peep-toes, which makes her look overall more interesting.

Devon Aoki is giving Elizabeth Banks some serious competition for Best Dressed of the Week.

Tonight the model/actress wore a custom violet silk chiffon one-shoulder Alberta Ferretti gown, with a Swarovski clutch.

For the second night in a row she’s flawless, and it’s so effortless for her.

Seriously WHO INVITED THIS WOMAN?

I have been so excited by the great start to Cannes Film Festival, then Phoebe Price makes an appearance on the red carpet.

What is this some kind of joke?

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “UP” Premiere

Tonight was definitely a night for couture gowns, and this is why I love Cannes Film Festival.

Elizabeth Banks looks outstanding wearing a one-shouldered Armani Privé Spring 2009 red gown.

She gives this gown an old Hollywood feel with the marcel waves, and the long flowing train.

Normally mounds of material attached to a gown icks me, this time I like it, and Elizabeth shows of the gown so perfectly.

Best Dressed of the Week is going to be tough.

I know many of you will hate the maroon Haider Ackermann Fall 2009 ensemble Tilda Swinton is wearing, but I love it, especially the colour and that gorgeous silhouette it gives her.

She’s like a gazelle, so interesting to look at, and so elegantly statuesque.

Tilda usually works with designers directly, so it wouldn’t be a surprised if they worked together on this modified look.

Isabelle Huppert may have been the most casual at the photocall earlier in the day, but tonight she looked very glamourous wearing a nude Armani Privé Spring 2009 gown, with an embroidered overlay, which was embellished with jewels.

She kept her neck bare, but she did accessorize with silver bracelets.

Robin Penn Wright continues her red carpet run without a hint of black.

This platinum silver metallic Elie Saab Fall 2007 Couture off-the-shoulder draped gown is divine.

I see her getting better and better.

Asia Argento wore a Armani Privé Spring 2009 Asian print strapless bell-shaped gown.

For me Asia struggles to pull this look off. I don’t like her hair with this gown, and the runway shoes look much better on the runway.

Model Eugenia Silva looks gorgeous in her black and grey checked Armani Privé Spring 2008 gown, with a rise and fall hem.

I’m not particularly crazy about this gown, because Milla Jovovich wore a modified version of this gown to the same festival last year, so I feel like I have seen it before.

From the top of her updo, to the hem of her Alberta Ferretti gown, Alessia Piovan is total perfection.

She has such elegance, the petrol blue is striking, and those earrings are divine.

Aishwarya Rai, like Elizabeth Banks, wore a gown with stunning train.

The Indian actress glowed in her white strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with a ruffled tiered skirt.

I’m not crazy about her hair style, but I do like her red bejewled Swarovski box clutch, and those pearl drop earrings.

I had high hopes for Shu Qi, but this teal strapless Roberto Cavalli gown is a tad boring compared to the others.
