2009 Cannes Film Festival – amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Benefit

Creating a sensation at the charity benefit, Diane Kruger looked outstanding in a white Chanel Spring 2009 Couture ensemble.

For me it doesn’t have the same impact as her Marchesa gown which made my heart melt, but she still looks amazing.

I love the square shouldered cropped jacket, the cute black bow – which we know she loves – and the interesting shaped skirt, which reveals a lace lining.

A bejeweled clutch and Louboutin’s complete the look.

With so many great dresses this week, would it be fair to include both Diane’s looks in Best Dressed of the Week?

Only Dita von Teese can get away with wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009 Couture dress, with a transparent skirt revealing her garter.

That’s because she oozes class and chic sophistication.

I’m much more inspired by her in this dress than her previous Dior Couture dress.

I love Marion Cotillard, and her association with Dior is a match made in heaven but I would have loved something more dramatic from her.

Her pale blue Christian Dior Fall 2009 embroidered gown is gorgeous, as it brightens up her complexion.

You know saying, “Take one thing off before you leave the house”?

Well Paris Hilton should have taken off 3.

The headband, the necklace and the bracelet.

Her Basil Soda Spring 2009 Couture gown is already dripping with embellishments around the waist, that she needn’t have over cooked it.

This gown is quite dark and dramatic for Paris. I’m surprised she didn’t pick something more sugary.

Donatella Versace’s modification on her Versace Fall 2009 cornflower blue gown are very subtle.

I prefer her softer blue strapless gown.

The bodice is longer plus her gown has a fuller skirt.

I’m a constant admirer of how immaculate she always looks.

Michelle Yeoh opted for a purple satin Atelier Versace Fall 2008 gown with ruffled details on the shoulders and an open back.

She kept her jewelery minimal, with a few diamonds on the bracelet and earrings.

All my diva’s are going red.

First Coco Rocha, now Eva Green.

Is red the new black?

I’ve love Eva since she first stepped on the red carpet. She’s such a daredevil when it come to fashion. But on this occasion not so much.

Don’t get me wrong, I love her fuschia pink Christian Dior Fall 2009 Indian inspired gown with intricate embroidered details, but if ever their was someone to wear one of Dior’s Spring 2009 Couture ball gowns on the red carpet, this was our girl.

Elsa Pataky’s Armani Prive Fall 2008 black and white striped strapless gown may look a bit tame from the front, but that’s because all the drama is at the back, as it gathers then falls to a fishtail hem.

There would have been no prizes for guessing that Eva Herzigova would wear Dolce & Gabbana to this event. Much like her supermodel chum Claudia Schiffer.

Her Spring 2009 corseted red dress, had more sass than the runway version.

Hers was strapless and shorter to show off those impossibly long legs.

As much as Lily Cole is wearing a beautiful Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 strapless gown, she fails to excite.

Many of you have remarked that you would love for Georgina Chapman to modify her gowns, to make herself more individual, and stand out from the runway and her clients like Donatella Versace.

Unfortunately she didn’t hear your pleas on this occasion, because she wore a gold lame Marchesa Spring 2009 asymmetrical gown as it was presented on the runway plus the gold Louboutin’s.

Whatever the weather, she always looks outstanding, and here is no exception.

It feels strange calling anything by Chanel casual, but Anna Mouglalis’ blood red Chanel Cruise 2010 satin dress, feels too casual for such an event.

Kudos to her for wearing a piece from this collection, which was only presented last Thursday.

Margherita Missoni represented her family brand in the way she always does, with style and grace.

Her lurex silvery blue Missoni Spring 2009 gown, with a gold waistband, is a modification of the strapless jumpsuit which was presented on the runway.

Her added gold jewelery, and a matching mini clutch were the perfect touches for added glamour.

L’Oreal girl Kerry Washington takes the baton for the final leg of Cannes Film Festival, after Elizabeth Banks, Aishwarya Rai, Eva Longoria, and Evangeline Lilly represented the brand before her.

Kerry is a vision, as always wearing a strapless deco beaded Marchesa gown paired with a gold Bally box clutch.

Hayden Panettiere arrived at this event wearing a gorgeous blush silk chiffon Marchesa dress with similar silver embroidered details to Diane Kruger’s Marchesa gown.

I love the dress, but even in this picture it feels like the falling train is in the way.

Prior to this event you would have seen Hayden sunbathing on a yacht, relaxing with friends and topping up her tan.

Unfortunately it’s left unsightly tan lines.

I’m loving the vacation glow, but a hint of lippy would have worked wonders.

Zoe Saldana opted for a nude dress with a gathered detail on the hip, whilst she paired her look with copper accessories.

Sharon Stone has never looked better, but next time she should consider tanning her legs, before opting for a thigh high split. Her arm appears to be a different shade to her legs.

Despite all that the annual host for this event look magnificent wearing an asymmetrical Dior gown, with silver strappy Dior heels.

Claudia Schiffer stays faithful to her boys Dolce & Gabbana, wearing this tulle black bustier gown.

You’ll be happy to see that she’s keeping the bangs for now.

Zhang Ziyi’s ethereal nude gown is so delicious on her. The colour is exquisite complimenting her skin tone.

Her hair was pulled back off her face to reveal a long earring, and a diamond stud. How very 80s Janet Jackson.

I’m not quite getting the wow factor from Carine Roitfeld, which I got last year, but she still looks fantastic wearing this white Givenchy Couture gown.

I’m wondering has anyone ever seen her with her hair up?

Rinko Kikuchi wears a grey ruffled Chanel Fall 2008 Couture dress with really heavy clunky heels.

Shu Qi wears my least favourite gown of her Cannes experience.

All good runs come to a crashing end.

Case in point Robin Wright Penn in this charcoal spaghetti strapped gown.

2008 British Independent Film Awards

I do love it when British actress Sienna Miller and Keira Knightley step onto the red carpet but not together.  This is because they insist on holding each others hands the whole time like they are on a school trip, making it almost impossible to see their ensembles clearly.

That being said Sienna looks amazing wearing a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 mini black dress with large black paillette details on the shoulders, and brown paillette details cascading down the skirt which has a satin hem.

The dress was equally beautiful from the back, as it is open with a cowl detail.

She completed her look with thick tights and Christian Louboutin heels. I think this maybe one of the few times that I actually like tights on the red carpet.

Keira Knightley wore an interesting black and white high-necked gothic lace Balenciaga dress.

I always like Keira’s choices, because they’re never predictable.

British actress Anna Friel arrived on the red carpet wearing an Erdem Fall 2008 gown. The stunning satin dress has a contrast chiffon yoke, which makes the gown more interesting.

I love the abstract print of the bees, birds and butterfly design. I have the short version on my Net-A-Porter wish list.

She compliments her dress with a red clutch.

Eva Green will always be faithful to John Galliano, but every now and again she will cheat on him with Alexander McQueen.

The French actress arrived on the red carpet wearing a red velvet Alexander McQueen puff sleeve velvet dress with an empire line and a gathered hem.

She completed her look with Alexander McQueen burgundy square toe pumps, and an Alexander McQueen Union Jack clutch.

amfAR’s 2nd Annual Cinema Against AIDS Red Carpet

During the Rome Film Festival, amfAR’s held their 2nd Annual Cinema Against AIDS event.

Mena Suvari attended wearing a Missoni Spring 2009 very wide legged jumpsuit.

The jumpsuit was adorned with many sequins and studs.

The back of her dress was v-shaped to reveal her amazing back tattoo. I am not a fan of tattoo’s, but hers is quite impressive.

Margherita Missoni is of course wearing a dress from the Missoni collection.

Her maroon, peach and taupe column dress with embellishments, was modified from the Fall 2008 collection.

Eva Green returned her Gothic roots wearing this white dress, with a black lace overlay.

The actress recently wore a rich blue dress to the Franklyn London premiere, which was refreshing, but like Dita she looks better wearing darker colours.

2008 BAFTA Awards

Kate Hudson was by far the best dressed at the BAFTA Awards tonight in this gold metallic Christian Dior gown. It was even better in real life.

Followed closely by Keira Knightley in Valentino Spring 2008 Couture, which is surprising considering she is the face of Chanel.

She will definitely win the Best Female Actress Award, so I would have thought she would have worn Chanel. Just goes to prove you just can’t always predict these things.

I must say I was very surprised that Emily Blunt chose this turquoise sequined Marc Bouwer Spring 2008 one-shouldered gown.

Although it is stunning and fits her body like a glove, I would have expected her to have worn a bigger name designer.

Thandie Newton is a sheer knockout in this black satin Alexander McQueen Spring 2008 asymmetric fuschia accented gown.

I am not a fan of lace, and I would have preferred if this dress was without it, but Thandie makes it work.

I admire Tilda Swinton for taking on this Christian Dior Spring 2008 Couture dress, but unfortunately for her, the dress wore her.

The dress had too much going on at the back, that it made her look like a ninja turtle with a shell or back-pack on her back.

There were better dresses from this collection she could have chosen.

Sienna Miller surprisingly went for a plain black dress from Christian Dior Spring 2008 collection.

I loved the detail on the back of this dress.

Poor Sienna, she would not have known as she tried her dress on, that with the fierce paparazzi flashes would expose her the fact that she did not wear any underwear.

French actress Marion Cotillard should have a contract with Chanel, because she wears their clothes so well.

Here she is wearing a sequined Chanel Fall 2007 Couture mini dress with an attached cape.

What a boring suck ass dress.

This is Dior and you would not believe it as Galliano is know for making dramatic, interesting dresses but on Jessica Biel, BORING.

Eva Green is also wearing a black Dior Spring 2008 gown, but with much more style and grace.

This RM by Roland Mouret Spring 2008 dress that Rosamund Pike is wearing, is not really a red carpet dress.

This is something I would wear to a meeting or on a date, but definitely not on the red carpet as gorgeous as it is.

This is a stunning turquoise Escada Spring 2008 dress on Naomi Harris, I just hate her hairstyle.

I am in pure lust with UK TV presenter Myleene Klass’ satin lavender dress.

Girlfriend sure knows how to show off her dress to maximum effect.
