Models @ amfAR Gala Cannes 2018

With the limited showing of actresses – Kristen Stewart, Laura Harrier and Coco Konig – at the amfAR Cannes Gala this year, it was left to the models to provide the glamour.

Maria Borges: It’s been so great to see Roberto Cavalli back on the red carpet at Cannes. Maria was one of many models to don a look from the Couture collection this year. This platinum piece dripping with citrine micro-crystals and draped fringes was as dazzling as she was radiant.

Karolina Kurkova: Always a cut above, the model looked very elegant and sexy in her Miu Miu column dress which she perfectly accessorized with Miu Miu shoes and drop diamond earrings to complement the Swarovski crystal bow.

Sara Sampaio: Even the models outstretch leg couldn’t upstage the dazzling sheen of her pleated lame Elie Saab Resort 2018 blue gown.

Chopard Trophée Red Carpet Roundup

Cate Blanchett and Elizabeth Debicki stepped out at the Cannes Film Festival Chopard Trophée event on Monday evening (May 14), alongside Araya A. Hargate and Diane Kruger.

Cate Blanchett: This Armani Prive gown exudes the regal, ethereal finish that demonstrates why the actress and designer are such a wonderful pairing. The dress might lack bold orientation but the exquisite tailoring is apparent with it seamlessly combining structure and fluidity. The multicoloured necklace brought the megawatt sparkle.

Elizabeth Debicki: Also in soft tones, the actress wore a Miu Miu gown that was trimmed in rhinestones for a captivating finish. The embellishment enhances the lines of the dress as well as her figure while creating interesting movement.

Chopard Secret Night Red Carpet Roundup

There were many more gorgeous gals who attended Chopard’s Secret Night during Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 12), where they joined by Lupita Nyong’o, Marion Cotillard and Julianne Moore.

Joan Smalls: We expect models to attend these events in predictable sheer, slit to the hipbone dresses, but Joan was not sticking to those loose rules on this occasion. The model looked breath-taking wearing a Miu Miu Collection bow accented top and fluid skirt. I found this look very elegant and chic. Miu Miu executed this beautifully. I would say it’s one of my favourites so far. The look was styled with Roger Vivier sandals and Chopard jewels.

Irina Shayk: The one thing you can always expect from Irina at Cannes is high-glamour. She had me purring with delight at her Alberta Ferretti emerald green velvet gown styled with matching Chopard jewels. This is definitely her best at Cannes this year. Even if this dress did remind me of Rita Ora’s Grammy gown.

‘Deadpool 2’ London Fan Screening

Ryan Reynolds, Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin were in London yesterday (May 10), for the ‘Deadpool 2’ fan screening held at the Empire Casino Leicester Square.

Ryan Reynolds: The actors refined aesthetic really comes to the fore in this Brunello Cucinelli dark grey suit. This could’ve come off run-of-the-mill had it not been for the striped double breast waistcoat and contrast navy tie.

Zazie Beetz: The actress loves to experiment when it comes to fashion, and there was a quite a fēsta going on with this look. I love the mirrored detailing on her Miu Miu Collection dress. This would’ve been detailed enough for some, but Zazie’s personality really comes out to play with the floral hair accessories and Jimmy Choo ‘Caroline’ mules. It may be a bit cray cray for some, but she has the personality to pull it off and I’m totally charmed by it all.

Josh Brolin: On the opposite of the side of the spectrum, Josh played it safe in all black Brioni.

Joey King In Miu Miu – The Kissing Booth’ LA Screening

Joey King was looking all grown up for the screening of ‘The Kissing Booth’ on Thursday (May 10) in Los Angeles, California.

Offering a perfectly themed lipstick-red hue, this flattering frock from Miu Miu Collection boasts a slim silhouette and flared hem for amplified drama.

I love the addition of the red pumps, but I’m thankful the matchy elements ended here. Any more red, like lipstick for example, would have been overkill for the 18-year-old actress.

‘355’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

After first seeing a photoshoot with Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o and Fan Bingbing on Elizabeth Stewart’s instagram, I thought the ladies were promoting a beauty line or jewelry, as they were all decked out in black.

Turns out the ladies are actually promoting their spy thriller ‘355’ during Cannes Film Festival this afternoon (May 10).

Can our hearts take two mega Girl Power promo tours this year (the other being Ocean’s 8)?

It can, and it will.

Penelope Cruz: Despite the famous Devil Wears Prada quote, I’m all in when it comes to florals for spring and summer, especially when it breaks up the mostly-black run the Spanish actress has opted for during this festival. Her Ralph Lauren Collection Spring 2018 maxi was such a refreshing choice.

Marion Cotillard: The edgier side to Marion came out to play again today in this Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 LBD styled with Chanel cuffs. The Nicholas Kirkwood Casati over-the-knee biker boots drag this look down a bit. I would’ve loved a open-toe bootie.

Jessica Chastain: Elegance personified, the actress always looks right at home during Cannes Film Festival. The best part of her Wolk Morais look is the gorgeous draped detail at the back. Jimmy Choo ‘Hourly’ sandals completed her look.

Lupita Nyong’o: Fresh of her successful promo tour for ‘Black Panther’ the actress was wearing all black donning a Miu Miu collection dress. Styled with Lace up ankle booties and Fendi shades, I do love this look, but I’m missing Lupita in bold colours. APM Monaco’s Mono silver moon earrings completed her look.

Fan Bingbing: I was worried that we wouldn’t see the Asian actress at the festival this year as she’s no longer and L’Oreal or Chopard ambassador. What would Cannes be without Fan Bingbing? Decked out in all white Osman Spring 2018, the white shirt might aim to bring balance to this look, but it’s all about the feather skirt. I’m living for this daytime drama. The shoes? Hmmm.

Dakota Fanning In Miu Miu – 2018 Met Gala

Dakota Fanning attended the 2018 Met Gala on Monday night (May 7) in New York City at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. She joined Rihanna, Amber Heard and Princess Beatrice.

‘The Alienist’ actress was angelic in embellished Miu Miu, but I cannot help feeling a bit underwhelmed by it. It’s a pretty gown and does tie in with the theme, but it unfortunately lacks the drama required for the grand occasion.

This feels like something she could wear on just about any red carpet. Had she worn a headpiece or a cape, it would have created a memorable ensemble.

What do you think?
