Chanel & Vanity Fair France Dinner Party

Chanel & Vanity Fair France Dinner Party
With the fashionable force of celebrities in town for the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival in France, no better time for another starry party. Chanel and ‘Vanity Fair’ took the opportunity to fete the occasion on Tuesday (May 20) with a dinner at the beachfront restaurant, Tetou, where a bevy of Chanel-clad beauties were on the scene.

Lily Allen: The British singer-songwriter was dressed in a blue tweed frock with glittery embroidery from the Chanel Spring 2012 Couture collection, which she paired with (not pictured) gunmetal metallic pumps. The classic silhouette received a punchy accent via the embellished cold-shoulder sleeves and patchwork hemline. While her blue pendant earrings may have been unnecessary given the glitz of the dress, the yellow Chanel clutch was definitely a questionable blot on this look.

Jessica Chastain: Whereas Lily went for shine, Jessica kept her look on a more subtle level, donning a Chanel Resort 2014 white tweed dress with pockets. From her flame-red locks to her barely-there makeup and natural nails, this was the embodiment of au naturel styling. We can’t see if her shoes added a spark, but were you bored, or did you appreciate her breezy, effortless beauty?

Jessica Chastain In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Foxcatcher’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain In Elie Saab Couture - 'Foxcatcher' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain attended the ‘Foxcatcher’ premiere on a very windy evening during Cannes Film Festival on Monday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

The actress remained graceful despite the gale-force winds sending her asymmetrical Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture silk mousseline gown billowing in the wind, revealing more of her leg than she probably anticipated via the side slit.

I adore the soft lavender hue; she always knows the right colours to bring her alive on the red carpet.

Roger Vivier sandals completed her look.

It may not feel too summery, but those rainbow-hued pumps were the perfect pop of colour needed to enliven this chic, event-appropriate look.

Jessica Chastain In Atelier Versace - 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain attended the Cannes Film Festival premiere for ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’ this evening (May 17).

The actress wore a stunning Atelier Versace gown; what’s more, the colour was electric blue: my favourite.

Regular readers will not be surprised to hear that this ensemble left me completely breathless.

The bold colour was a great choice to stand out on the red carpet for a busy evening premiere, but also a great colour for Jessica’s skin tone.

Cut with an asymmetrical neckline and draped to perfection, this look is a non-negotiable on my BDOTY list.

She has never looked more radiant, and that is quite a feat considering she’s had many great moments.

Of course there was no clutch, just stunning jewels, matching Roger Vivier heels, perfect coiffed tresses à la Veronica Lake, and a beautiful red lip to match her polish.

Repeat after me: ‘We are not worthy’.

Jessica Chastain In Nina Ricci - 2014 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Jessica Chastain enjoyed another night out on the red carpet at the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica.

The actress looked divine wearing a romantic Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2014 cypress green silk crepe gown with a lace yoke back which featured light ruffles.

Balancing feminine fancy with grown-up gumption, she completed the look with a part-braided do and orange lip shade.

Red heads and green gowns are always a winning combination for me. Does it work for you on this occasion?

Nail Trend Spotting: 2014 Golden Globes Moody Darks

Nail Trend Spotting 2014 Golden Globes Moody Darks

Dark polishes made their appearance during the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. And with manicures getting more and more coverage (hello, mani cams), nails are becoming a trend all on their own.

Taylor Schilling donned Essie’s Berry Naughty, a beautiful oxblood shade. Celebrity manicurist, Beth Fricke, wanted a color that would look gorgeous against her dark, kelly-green gown.

Celebrity manicurist Christina Aviles decided on a deep red to stand out against Jessica Chastain’s dark dress. Essie’s Poor Li’l Rich Girl was the perfect shade to complement.

Michelle Saunders, celebrity manicurist for Kate Beckinsale, went with what she thought was a bold choice for the red carpet. “But she pulled it off flawlessly,” says Michelle. The colour?

Essie’s Licorice, which gave off the effect of patent leather–the perfect addition to her metallic gown.

Have you been sporting the dark nail trend? If not, you’ve still a few weeks left before lights and pastels start making their rounds for spring.
