Red Carpet Fashion Awards

BDOTW Cannes

With so much going on this weekend I almost forgot to announce who was best dressed of the week.

Well, it was a two-way tie between Blake Lively in Gucci Première and Blake Lively in Gucci Première. While I believed her opening ceremony gown was the better of the two, it would appear you guys loved them both equally.

My choice was the great Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé. What can I say; it’s a match made in fashion heaven.

When it came to the fellas, you gave Ryan Reynolds in Gucci the top honour this week. I, on the other hand, was swept away by Benedict Cumberbatch in his impeccable Ralph Lauren Black Label suit.

"The Captive" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Just as we hoped, Blake Lively joined husband Ryan Reynolds on the red carpet for the premiere of his latest movie ‘Captives’ during Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 16) in Cannes, France.

Working black and white in unison, the couple blew me away.

She wore a Gucci Première black and white silk crepe fifties-inspired strapless gown featuring a full skirt and a dramatic train, while he wore Gucci black satin peak lapel one-button Signoria tuxedo with a white evening shirt, white satin bowtie, black silk cummerbund and white leather laceups.

While I prefer Blake’s first Gucci Première gown, I don’t think she has ever looked more beautiful than she did tonight. I have goosebumps on my goosebumps.

It’s like looking at a couple from Hollywood’s golden age, they complemented each other so well.

Blake wore over 180 cts in Lorraine Schwartz diamonds including 20 ct diamond studs, two diamond necklaces, a natural pearl and unheated ruby and diamond bracelet and her own Lorraine Schwartz pink diamond engagement ring.

Ryan wore a pink gold ‘Octo’ Bulgari watch with black alligator strap.

Blake-Lively-In-Giambattista-Valli-Couture-Grand-Journal-TV2

Blake Lively made a guest appearance on the ‘Grand Journal’ TV show earlier today (May 15) before taking to the red carpet for the ‘Mr Turner’ premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

Showing off her legs on this occasion, Blake wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture white textured mini dress with pink embroidery and crystal detailing, which she styled with nude Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals.

If you’re thinking, ‘Couture, for a mid-afternoon TV show?’ remember this is Cannes where even Couture at breakfast wouldn’t be frowned upon.

Blake Lively In Chanel Couture - 'Mr Turner' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Blake Lively was back on the red carpet this evening (May 15) for the ‘Mr Turner’ Premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

The actress wore a Chanel Spring 2014 Couture iridescent ankle-length dress enriched with sequins, tulle and organza embroideries with a silk kimono draped around her arms.

I can already feel that some will take exception to the plunging neckline, but my issue the placement of her hands in her pockets, mimicking the runway.

This is not the first time she has mimicked the runway. You may remember her Lanvin Spring 2011 look worn to the Spike TV Awards, where she parted her skirt to give it movement like the runway image.

Nonetheless, this was another amazing look for Blake, who dazzled as brightly as the frock, accessorising with Sophia Webster ‘Etta’ pink pumps with a diamante heel, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Blake Lively In  Gucci Première - ‘Grace of Monaco’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Blake Lively made her Cannes Film Festival debut for the ‘Grace of Monaco’ premiere, which doubled up as the opening ceremony this evening (May 14).

As expected, the actress wore a Gucci Premiere gown, looking absolutely divine donning a two-tone bordeaux silk-chiffon fully pleated gown featuring a geometric neckline, open back, fitted bodice and high side slit showcasing her gold Casadei sandals.

Opting for a messy high braided ponytail, the actress completed her look with smouldering eye makeup and the most stunning rose-gold and ruby Lorraine Schwartz diamond vine earrings and bracelet.

I was expecting her to be flawless and she still managed to exceed my expectations. Sexy, glamorous and elegant.

Blake Lively In Gucci - Nice Airport

Blake Lively was spotted arriving in Nice for the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 13) in Nice, France.

Travelling in style, the actress, who will be making her Cannes debut as a L’Oreal girl later this evening, wore a Gucci Pre-Fall 2014 hot-pink coat styled with black trousers.

If she was trying to go incognito with the hat, perhaps she should’ve opted for a coat in a darker shade.

Christian Louboutin ‘Mikaraja’ loafers and a black Givenchy ‘Pandora’ shoulder bag completed her look.

Who wants to bet against Blake wearing Gucci tonight?
