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.

Netflix FYSEE Kick-Off Event

Netflix’s FYSEE Kick-Off event took place on Monday (May 7) in Beverly Hills, California, with plenty of young talent hitting the red carpet.

Brit Marling: Favouring modern minimalism Brit’s Louis Vuitton vibrant red dress was of course styled with LV ankle boots; as it would appear these dresses were not made for those who favour sandals.

Gillian Jacobs: The actress’ love for colourful prints took a back seat when she opted for this romantic Sandro black lace embellished dress. It’s a change of pace which paid off nicely, mostly due to the styling which included a Jennifer Behr headband. I’m glad she didn’t try to take this too far down a goth route.

Natasha Lyonne: The ‘OITNB’ actress’ Rodarte dress certainly doesn’t shy away from print, yet I still feel a bit underwhelmed.

2017 Met Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Many more stars were at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Hailee Steinfeld: I love the deconstructed kimono edge of this Vera Wang design that was both playful and progressive. Hailee’s twisted top knot and winged eye liner likewise sold the look to me.

Dasha Zhukova
: Dasha softly echoed the theme with this red floral Proenza Schouler keyhole gown.

Olivia Cooke: Also wearing the colour of the night, Olivia donned a seductive red Burberry gown with boudoir lace that got creative in its asymmetry.
