Best Dressed Of The Week – Nicole Kidman In Valentino Couture and Jesscia Chastain In Givenchy Couture

BDOTW Nicole & Jessica

Nicole Kidman was your clear winner for Best Dressed this week, wearing a Valentino Couture gown during Cannes Film Festival.

It was just one of many gowns worn by the Australian actress which swept us off our feet during the 12-day festival.

My pick was Jessica Chastain in Givenchy Couture. It was such an unexpected, bold choice for the usually reserved star. On a post of mostly neutral-coloured gowns, she really stood out.

BDOTW Men Tom & Jeremy

When it comes to men, our choices also greatly differed. You opted for the charming Tom Hiddleston in Alexander McQueen, while I selected Jeremy Renner in Lanvin.

While there isn’t much between them, for me the satin lapels and white pocket square added that much more refinement to Jeremy’s look to help me with my choice.

Jessica Chastain In Saint Laurent – amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Jessica Chastain In Saint Laurent - amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Following her bedazzling gown from the night before, Jessica Chastain opted for a more subdued look for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France this evening.

The only bit of bling came from her Bulgari serpent bracelet, as she wore a beautiful maroon Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane gown.

Her asymmetrical gown with a cut-out detail is yet another elegant look from the actress.

The colour, which closely matches her flame-coloured hair, is divine and her makeup is nothing short of perfect.

You weren’t too fond of her ponytail yesterday, as it was enough to put many of you off the look; however, she sported glossy wavy tresses on this occasion.

Do you approve?

Jessica Chastain In Givenchy Couture – ‘All Is Lost’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain In Givenchy Couture - ‘All Is Lost’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain blew me away for the second time today while attending the ‘All Is Lost’ Cannes Film Festival premiere held at the Palais des Festivals in France in this evening.

At this point I have forgotten all about the absence of Nicole Kidman, as a worthy red carpet Cannes queen has taken her place.

The actress wore her second custom Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci gown in a row, going from soft and ethereal to making a huge statement in this purple embellished gown.

JLo and Beyonce are kicking themselves that they didn’t get their hands on this gown.

The elaborate embellishment decorating this dress is something we easily associate with those singers, so while this look is a shock for Jessica, it is a welcome one. Just what this event needed to shake it out of its sleepy slumber.

With so much bedazzlement, Elizabeth Taylor’s Bulgari jewels were kept in the vault tonight.

Jessica Chastain In Givenchy - Bulgari Hosts 'Cleopatra' Cocktail

Following her Best Dressed of The Day look in Versace Collection for the ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, where she wore a stunning necklace from the Elizabeth Taylor Bulgari Collection, Jessica Chastain attended a party hosted by Bulgari at the Hotel Marriott in Cannes, France yesterday evening.

Opting for white once again, the beautiful actress wore a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Spring 2014 crepe-de-chine gown with satin cut-outs and a plunging neckline.

On this occasion her jewel choice was a subtle emerald ring which stands out against the white backdrop of her gorgeous gown, and an emerald brooch accenting her flame-coloured locks.

She is such a class act. I love how elegant she always looks. I hope one day she is on the jury for Cannes so we can get to see this kind of magic for 12 days straight.

Tisci really needed this after…well…you know.

Jessica Chastain In Versace Collection - 'Cleopatra' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain returned to Cannes Film Festival, taking to The 60th Anniversary Theatre this evening for the ‘Cleopatra’ premiere in France.

The red-haired beauty looked regal, wearing a Versace Collection gown which was fit for a Queen.

Her long-sleeved off-white silk gown, featuring a cape which trailed behind her into a dramatic train, was styled with a stunning sapphire sautoir and the trombino sapphire ring from the Elizabeth Taylor Bulgari collection.

Jessica is giving us a preview of the upcoming Versace Collection Spring/Summer 2014.

From this look it would appear this collection will focus less on the studs, cut-outs and slashed-to-the-thigh gowns the brand is known for, but we will have to wait and see.
