2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky” Premiere

Much better.

I hadn’t been a fan of Kerry Washington’s two previous looks, but she sure knows how to make me fall in love again.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing a flesh coloured Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 gown, covered in navy blue floral embellishments and a velvet navy ribbon.

We’ve seen this silhouette a lot at Cannes, but her floor-sweeping fishtail tulle train added to the overall glamour of the look.

Her bouffant was bouncy with beautiful tumbling curls, whilst her make-up kept light.

Myleene Klass wore a very similar version of this gown last week.

Charlotte Gainsbourg won the best actress prize at the Cannes Film Festival last night for her role as a grieving mother in the film ‘Antichrist’.

She arrived at this premiere with her husband wearing a gold studded Balenciaga Resort 2009 shortened dress, which she wore with black strappy Balenciaga heels.

I love her carefree approach to fashion.

Asia Argento has had a fantastic run on the red carpet at Cannes, and it seems her preferred collections were from Roberto Cavalli and Armani Privé.

She picked another outstanding Armani Privé Spring 2009 gown for this premiere.

It had a sculptural detail on the shoulder and the skirt, which then trails off into a stunning train.

Her heels compliment the gown, and I love the print which lines inside of this magnificent gown.

Georgina Chapman wore a satin-faced silk organza dress from her Marchesa Spring 2009 collection, which is architecturally pleated to dramatic effect but it looks slightly flat whilst standing so close too her husband.

Satin Louboutin’s complete the look.

Isabelle Huppert and Asia, will have to fight it out for the honour of ‘Queen of Couture’ at this years Cannes Film Festival. Both have worn such magnificent pieces.

Isabelle has worn some cutting edge and risqué pieces, but on this occasion she opted for a Spring 2009 Chanel Couture gown which was so elegant, delicate, and sophisticated.

Zhang Ziyi looked like a fairytale princess in this wonderful blush pink paillette covered gown, which was cut very low at the back.

Her gown was paired with a silver clutch, and she may have been inspired Paris Hilton as she wore a jeweled hair accessory.

When I saw Robin Wright Penn wearing this shimmering sheer black gown, the first person to come to mind was Sharon Stone.

That’s not a good thing.

Shu Qi’s blue one-shouldered Roberto Cavalli gown was embellished around waist, and on the shoulder strap with black crystals.

Her sapphire blue earrings and ring, complimented her gown beautifully.

Anna Mouglalis wore an eye-catching green satin gown, with an exaggerating bow, as she smoldered for the cameras.

2009 Cannes Film Festival Catch Up – Part 3

“Inglourious Basterds” Premiere

I can’t believe I missed this one yesterday.

Isabelle Huppert must have stunned the crowds arriving in a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 LBD, which some may mistake as a bin liner.

I said from the very first day, when the judges were unveiled that she was the feisty one of the group.

Some of her choices – especially this one – prove that.

This is a tough dress to pull off, but I think she does as she has the right attitude.

Her dress was worn with black velvet heels from the same collection.

“Broken Embraces” Photo Call

Penelope Cruz and director Pedro Almodovar arrived at the photocall glued to the hip, as always.

He wore a Missoni sweater, whilst she wore a figure-hugging, nude Dolce & Gabbana strapless dress, which were paired with matching peep-toes.

For those who were speculating that she’s pregnant, I’m not so sure.

“Paris, Not France” Cocktail Party

Despite not seeming to have anything to promote at Cannes, Paris Hilton is determined to be the belle of the ball.

At a cocktail party thrown in her honour, she showed off her billowing Roberto Cavalli floral chiffon maxi dress.

She wasn’t content with the dress being enough of a statement, she also added a diamante headband, a huge silver necklace, and multiple bracelets to complete her look.

She is obsessed with headbands at the moment.

“Inglourious Basterds” Photo Call

Diane Kruger wore a simple strapless vintage Chanel LBD to this photocall with black peep-toes.

“Wild Grass” Premiere

We have seen many re-runs at Cannes Film Festival, but not by the same person.

Carine Roitfeld wears the same Balmain Spring 2009 ensemble, she wore to an event back in September.

I guess she is saving the wow factor for tonight’s amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Benefit.

Anne Consigny wears a fruity Valentino Spring 2009 Couture sleeveless dress with a floral detail hem.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Vincere” Premiere

Isabelle Huppert continues to look great on the red carpet.

Her look is authoritative – as the head judge – yet still feminine and ultra sophisticated, case in point her Armani Prive Spring 2009 black skirt suit.

I love the structured details.

Asia Argento is a very sexy woman, which shines through in her black Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009.

Robin Wright Penn created a sensation, as she oozed glamour in her midnight blue shimmering gown.

Simple drop earrings completed the look.

Valeria Solarino opted for a kaleidoscope of colours, wearing a Roberto Cavalli printed silk gown.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Vengeance” Premiere

I waited a week for a Valentino gown to grace the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, then two come along at once.

We haven’t seen Evangeline Lilly on the red carpet since the Emmy Awards, back in September 2008 but she hasn’t lost any of her sparkle.

We are more use to seeing The Lost actress covered in dirt running through a jungle, but she looked stunning opting for a backless lace Valentino Spring 2009 Couture embroidered gown with cut out panels.

The hem modified from the runway, but it doesn’t diminish her gown in anyway.

Hopefully we will get to see more from the newly appointed L’Oreal ambassador.

Many of you felt disappointed when Eva Longoria wore your favourite Atelier Versace gown on the red carpet last week.

I can now sympathize because I had booked marked this Armani Privé Spring 2009 black sequined dress for Cate Blanchett, but it was worn by Isabelle Huppert.

The shorten hem takes away some of the magic of this dress, but Isabelle was right to do this. The longer version would’ve suited Cate better, because she’s so tall and statuesque.

All that said I love neckline.

Judge Shu Qi arrived wearing bubble gum pink strapless Valentino Pre-Fall 2009 gown with a bow detail on her side.

That’s 4 Valentino gowns in 1 evening. I am not worthy.

Tan Zhuo opted for silver t-bar heels with her shimmering champagne Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 flapper dress.

Robin Wright Penn wore a black Narciso Rodriguez gown with a criss-cross detail on her back.

You may remember Jennifer Aniston wore this same dress in red,on the cover of the Vogue US December 2008 issue.

The forever elegant Kristin Scott Thomas arrived wearing a navy tiered Lanvin gown.

Her finishing touches of a chic up ‘do, drop earrings, and black clutch, perfected her look.

Asia Argento opted for a navy blue tiered strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with a stunning necklace.

I’m on the fence with Michelle Yeoh strapless nude Roberto Cavalli gown.

I’m just not sure if all that embroidered detail on the bust is too busy for such a neutral gown.

Laetitia Hallyday wore a fabulous Dolce & Gabbana tulle mermaid hem gown, unfortunately we have seen this gown too many times before.

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.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – Jury Presentation Photo Call

Shu Qi was one of the 5 judges to be presented to the media at Cannes Film Festival today.

The gorgeous Taiwanese actress wore a nude coloured Bottega Veneta Spring 2009 one-shouldered dress, with matching wedges from the same collection.

I’m already excited to see what she will be wearing over the next coming days.

French actress Isabelle Huppert dressed in a more casual way, wearing a Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 gold striped, navy knitted top, with jeans, and a blazer.

Just by looking at her, you can tell she is the feisty one of the group.

Robin Wright Penn exudes that sophisticated elegance, Sharon Stone tries to exude, but has never been able to master.

Her white Dsquared² Spring 2009 suit is so simple, and yet so beautiful.

She tends to wear a lot of dark colours, especially black, so I’m hoping this suit is the start of something more colourful for Robin.

Italian actress Asia Argento opted for a black and white flirty number.

Indian actress Sharmila Tagore opted for a lemon fruity saree, with some stunning jewels.
