Cannes Film Festival Weekend Red Carpet & Parties Round Up

“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” Premiere

Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford, as usual, looked blissfully happy as they took to the red carpet this weekend. She was wearing a stunning blue silk one-shouldered Bill Blass Fall 2008 gown, whilst he was very dapper in a black suit with a satin tie.

Cate Blanchett wore a grey in a strapless lattice Armani Privé Spring 2008 gown with a necklace from the Chopard Red Carpet collection.

Natalie Portman wore a simple black Chanel gown, but still stood out on the red carpet thanks to her red lipstick.

Looking at Salma Hayek on the red carpet these days is like watching TV on mute. Although her jade silk Balenciaga dress is pretty enough, her whole look seems very subdued.

Maybe it’s the Frida Kahlo hair, but something is just off.

Kelly Brook arrived on the red carpet with her on-again fiance Billy Zane. She was wearing a baby blue daisy-printed cute haltered Luisa Beccaria Spring 2008 dress, with nude Christian Louboutin Catenita platform pumps. He was wearing sneakers on the red carpet…a big no no.

Rachel Leigh Cook was pretty in pink wearing a Elsie Katz Couture Spring 2008 dress, with tulip skirt, a tulle trim and a diamante belt. She accessorized with a Daniel Swarovski bag.

Linda Evangelista wore a dramatic one shoulder champagne silk gown embroidered in sequins from the Lanvin Fall 2008 collection.

Star Jones is sparkling in this see-through beaded dress.

“Vicky Christina Barcelona” Premiere

Penelope Cruz looked like a swan on the Cannes red carpet in a backless white Marchesa gown with 60 carats-worth of Chopard jewelery.

Rebecca Hall matches Penelope in the style stakes, wearing this sea green Alberta Ferretti one-shouldered pleated gown.

Aishwarya Rai opted for a fushica deep plunging Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2008 gown.

Russian-born actress, Svetlana Metkina looks amazing in this pink Balmain Spring 2008 strapless maxi dress.

“Vicky Christina Barcelona” Photocall

Penelope Cruz drove the paparazzi crazy in this steel blue L’Wren Scott Spring 2008 fitted dress with maroon velvet trim.

Quintessentially & Margherita Missoni Cannes Party For OrphanAid Africa

Mischa Barton looks stunning in this Missoni Spring 2008 floral gown. This is her best dress since she arrived at Cannes.

Margherita Missoni wears this gold embellished Missoni Spring 2008 wrap, over her dress whilst carrying a Louis Vuitton Limelight clutch.

Vanity Fair Party

Mischa Barton sure does love her headbands.

For this party Mischa wore a Roberto Cavalli Fall 2008 gown with sequined detail.

Vanilla Gorilla Party

Maria Menounos attended a party on the Bud Light Yacht, in a mint green silk devore halter dress with knot detail from the Catherine Malandrino Spring/Summer 2008 collection.

25.02.08 Worst Dressed

Oscars 2008 – Worst Dressed

Worst Dressed Award
I love Tilda Swinton and her very unique style – which is not to everyone’s tastes – but I just did not like this Lanvin dress.

I hated that one long shoulder. It really did not work for me.

Risk That Failed Award
Julie Christie tried to be edgy, tried not to conform to the norm by choosing a cocktail dress which she designed herself along with long pink sheer gloves from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2008 collection, but just ended up looking very confused.

Worst Pouting Award
Miley Cyrus posing and pouting was SOOOOOOO inappropriate. So many young girls would have tuned in the Oscars just to see a 15 year old girl, pouting like Paris Hilton.

Her Valentino Resort 2008 red gown was stunning though, thankfully not to short nor revealing.

She completed her look with Neil Lane jewels and a Mary Norton clutch.

Most Disappointing Award
The L’Wren Scott diamond necklace was too over powering on Nicole Kidman’s simple custom-made Balenciaga gown. The necklace was obviously designed to detract you from her baby bump and it worked.

The looks is completed with a Bottega Veneta clutch.

Worst Haute Couture Award
Sarah Larson was way out of her league in this Valentino Spring 2008 Couture strapless gown.

Girlfriend did not own it. She just hobbled alongside George Clooney, smiling like a Miss World contestant.

This is why I love Keisha Whitaker so much. Keisha owns a dress, and outshines her husband Forest, despite him being the star.

Sarah’s hair is also terrible. It is a little lighter in colour than usual, but she could have put it up or done something different.

Worst Hair Award
I was not crazy about Jennifer Garner’s hair. For an updo I found it a little messy on the left-hand side.

I was not particularly in love with her black silk taffeta Oscar de la Renta fishtail gown either. The skirt was way too busy.

Jennifer wore Van Cleef & Arpels diamonds and a Roger Vivier clutch.

Back To Black Award
I was not shocked that Ellen Page wore black tonight.

Her in vintage gown from Jean Louis Scherrer Haute Couture collection was just a tad boring. I loved how they tried to jazz up her outfit with the long Fred Leighton necklace, but it was not enough.

Her metal and metallic leather hard frame vintage Judith Leiber purse completed the look.


DeJa Vu Award
Amy Adams emerald green strapless satin Proenza Schouler gown gave me a touch of deja vu, back to last years Oscars, where Isla Fisher’s look was very similar.

The dress itself is beautiful, as she is in it, but she loses points for not being original.

Amy teamed her dress with an Art Nouveau French gold-mesh purse by Fred Leighton that would not even fit a credit card.

Worst Pregnant Award
After Cate Blanchett looked amazing in Vera Wang at the Spirit Awards, I had high hopes for her Oscars dress.

Unfortunately she let me down big time in this Dries Van Noten gown. What I particularly did not like was the neckline. It was a little bit to busy for me.

Her look was completed with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and a Roger Vivier clutch.

Worst Use Of Colour Award
Ryan Seacrest called the colour on Kelly Preston’s Roberto Cavalli dress “stop-light amber”. I just call it hideous.

Most Boring Award
Rosamund Pike RM by Roland Mouret dress is a pretty colour, but I was nothing but bored by it. It’s the Oscars, jazz it up a little.

When Will You Get It Right On The Big Night? Award
I love this Roberto Cavalli white dress, especially the snake-skin beaded detail, but I really disliked the way her breast sat in the dress. Very unflattering.

24.02.08

2008 Film Independent’s Spirit Awards Red Carpet

I guess Angelina Jolie is pregnant then.

She wore a black, silk-crepe dress by Western Costume, with Gara Danielle Fine Jewelry gold and diamond snake ring, and Christian Louboutin shoes.

One hot mama.

Speaking of pregnant…look how stunning Cate Blanchett is in Vera Wang.

I can’t wait to see what she wears tomorrow.

This Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2008 ensemble would not be easy to pull off, because the colour are so strong.

Many would have stayed away from this look, but not Kerry Washington. She looks gorgeous.

Eva Mendes looks happy and healthy in a grey turtleneck Calvin Klein sheath dress with a yellow clutch.

Jada Pinkett-Smith is having a great week on the red carpet. This ivory silk Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2008 cocktail dress was the perfect choice, along with her yellow clutch.

Ellen Page sticks to her usual black with a white shirt.

I pray she wears colour tomorrow at the Oscars….and a dress for that matter.

Sienna Miller looks beautiful even without make-up, wearing a back haltered Monique Lhuillier lace cocktail dress.

The dress has a beautiful neckline of organza ruffles and a bow.

Tang Wei arrived in an artistic print dress from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2008 collection.

No one bores me more on the red carpet than Kate Beckinsale.

She, like her dress, have no personality.

I love the print on Eliza Dushku kimono sleeve dress. Like most of the others on this red blue carpet, she did not opt for black.

28.01.08 Worst Dressed

Screen Actors Guild Awards – Worst Dressed



Worst Statement Dress Award

OK Angelina Jolie is obviously wearing this vintage Hermes strapless free flowing dress in an attempt to hide her pregnancy. Yawn.



Worst Dressed Award

Tilda Swinton has a very unique androgynous style, but she should have lost the jacket or opted for a cropped version.

Most Disappointing Award

This hurts.

I tried to love it, but I just could not.

Cate Blanchett, my fashion favourite really let me down last night, despite this dress being Balenciaga.

Worst Colour Award

America Ferrera on the red carpet again wearing Monique Lhuillier.

The partnership has worked very well so far, but on this occasion this dress falls flat for me. I really dislike the colour.

I have not seen America on the red carpet since November, and I expected more from her.

Worst Embellishments Award

Jane Krakowski should have worn her hair back, as the embellishments on this Catherine Malandrino Spring 2008 halter gown totally dominate it.

It also looks like she has a bowl of fruit around her neck.

Worst Dress / Shoes Combo Award

I admire the fact that Chandra Wilson wanted to try something different from the standard gown, but this sequined dress did not work for me, neither did the shoes.

Had the dress been in one colour, maybe I would have liked it more.

It’s Not Working Award

Rebecca Romijn can do so much better, this colour on this Roberto Cavalli 2008 Resort dress is too dark and not at all flattering for her.

For me Rebecca is more of a bubble gum pink type of girl.

Worst Hair Award

Kate Hudson is wearing a beautiful strapless Balmain Spring 2008 floral gown with beaded detail, but I am not keen on the dress as an red carpet event dress.

I am also disliking her hair.

Time To Find A New Stylist Award

I am just not sure about this material for Nikki Blonsky. The style is OK, but it may have been better if it was empire waisted.

Back To Black Award

This is a really nice Zac Posen dress, but I am beyond bored of Ellen Page in black, and that is why she is in this category.

Worst D List Award

Lisa Rinna is trying to grab attention in this Jenny Packham Spring 2008 animal print dress, but just comes off desperate.

She has dressed so much better in the past on the red carpet, so this is very disappointing.

Most Boring Award

For a young girl, Andrea Bowen should be experimenting more.
