Michelle Williams In Louis Vuitton – ‘Wonderstruck’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Michelle Williams was back on the red carpet for the ‘Wonderstruck’ premiere during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival this afternoon (May 18), following the photocall this morning.

While I did expect her to wear custom Louis Vuitton, I didn’t expect to be underwhelmed.

At Cannes, the home of “only your best will do”, this mirco-studded gown falls way short.

I would go as far to say this feels a bit mumsy.

The only brief moment of joy was seeing this in motion as the gown features a split down the side and a draped cape, but alas, I’m clutching at straws.

Michelle Williams In Louis Vuitton – ‘Wonderstruck’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

While Marion Cotillard was showcasing her new found freedom from all things Dior, the Michelle Williams, Louis Vuitton union was still going strong this afternoon (May 18) at the ‘Wonderstruck’ Cannes Film Festival photocall.

Many of you have sighted “different version of the same dress” syndrome when it comes to MW x LV, however, this A-line silhouette punctuated with all-over wave-prints and a flared skirt adding both volume and drama to the overall silhouette can’t be overlooked.

And do you know the best thing about this look?

She’s wearing sandals. Hallelujah.

It’s been some time since a Louis Vuitton muse has be able to showcase her pedicure, as the LV ankle boots have been something of a must-wear with any LV look.

As for tonight, if I’m not typing the words, “Michelle Williams”, “Louis Vuitton” and “blown away” in the same sentence, I will be bitterly disappointed.

Louis Vuitton Resort 2018 Front Row

The Louis Vuitton Resort 2018 show was held on Sunday (May 14) in Koka, Japan, with the LV lovelies out in force in their best renditions of the brand.

Fan BingBing: I love the tough-girl edge that Fan served up here with this twist on leather, as she tempered it with a retro femininity in her bronze earrings and cross-body handbag as well as her oxblood lip.

Jennifer Connelly: Perhaps my love of electric blue was skewing my judgment, but the vibrancy of this uniform-like ensemble was intriguing. That said, the same sentiment was not felt so much for the taupe belt and platform loafers, but they did play into the funky-sport theme.

Michelle Williams: It seems as if we’ve seen this dress before, as despite its elaborate embroidery and pattern mix, it remains a bit one-note. And, it seems as if it is wearing Michelle and not the other way around. I fault the restrictive neckline for that—and the boots, which simply are too forced here.

Wearable Art Gala

The Wearable Art Gala quite appropriately boasted of a few looks that were nothing short of art pieces themselves, as attendees took to the red carpet in LA on Saturday (April 29).

Beyonce Knowles: The singer didn’t let being pregnant with twins get in the way of stealing the show as she turned heads in a Stephanie Costello for Stello red long-sleeved dress with a plunging neckline that hugged her growing baby bump. But it was the elaborate headdress adorned with butterflies, flowers and dragonflies which really captured my attention.

Yara Shahidi: Her Victoria,Victoria Beckham blouse and jeans combo is a good look for her, yet was so off theme that I was left disappointed.

Louis Vuitton x Jeff Koons Collaboration Launch Party

No stranger to collaborations, Louis Vuitton has now partnered with pop artist Jeff Koons on a limited line of accessories launching in April 28. To celebrate this Masters capsule collection, a dinner was held in Paris on Tuesday (April 11), with a host of LV-clad lovelies in attendance.

Jennifer Connelly: With a nod to a softer, romantic mood, Jennifer let her hair down in this decorative brocade and lace frock topped with a feathery stole. The label’s signature patent booties brought back the edge we’d expect in a look from this actress.

Fan Bingbing: Fan wore the signature sheer asymmetry of this gown effortlessly, which we’ve seen in different variation on Sophie Turner and Janice Man. I just think it would have been better served by sleeker styling, as the handbag and earrings competed rather than complemented the dress.

Cate Blanchett: As per, Cate cut a striking figure. But, the tailored regality of the sculptural top disappeared a bit with the drop-crotch pants, which can be something of an acquired taste.
