Charlotte Gainsbourg walked the red carpet at her movie premiere last night, looking stunning in a black and white splash print Balenciaga dress, with black strappy Balenciaga heels.
It may not be what you would expect to see on the Cannes red carpet, but this is very much Charlotte’s style, plus she is good friends with the designer Nicolas Ghesquière.
You can give a girl a pretty dress, expensive jewels and lessons on how to pose on the red carpet, but you can’t give her charisma.
Rosanna Arquette has that by the bucket load.
Like Kate Hudson she has a magnetism that draws you in, and I adore her cowl back gold sequin gown.
She’s just oozing sex appeal.
The Weinstein Company Celebrates NINE in Cannes
Marion Cotillard should have worn the runway belt with her Lanvin Spring 2009 dress, her dress has no shape without it.
Yves Saint Laurent cage ankle boots complete her all black look.

With t-bar Christian Louboutin heels, Georgina Chapman wore her own black and gold Marchesa embroidered silk dress with a draped chiffon overlay.

I could have loved Paris Hilton in her silver sequin strapless Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 cocktail dress with a dramatic bow front, as it looks soooo gorgeous on the runway.
The problem for me is that Paris over did the accessories.
The accessories are competing with the dress, and the dress should stand alone.
Lily Cole already has incredibly long legs, so it beggars belief why she wore nude heels to elongate her legs even further.
Lily wears the now well worn Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 taupe flapper dress.
Penelope Cruz wore an ivory John Richmond gown, with silver embellishments. I really wish she had removed her satin Balmain jacket for this photo. I’m dying to see the rest of the dress.
Olivia Palermo leaves me in despair as to why she wore YSL tribute sandals in black, with a pretty floral dress. She works in fashion right?
Malin Ackerman wore a bubble gum pink Versace dress, which has to be one of the most uninspired gowns I have seen at Cannes.
Peaches Geldof went head to toe red, wearing a red satin Dolce & Gabbana strapless bustier dress.
For once I like this look.
