Solange Knowles In Stéphane Rolland Couture – Vanity Fair and Chanel Party

Solange Knowles In Stéphane Rolland Couture - Vanity Fair and Chanel Party

Stephane Rolland is the one designer I look forward to seeing at Cannes Film Festival, but so far this year I haven’t been impressed with his first two outings; the most painful was Paz Vega.

Solange Knowles was spotted leaving Tetou in Cannes on Sunday, where she had performed at the Vanity Fair and Chanel party looking outstanding wearing a look from the Stephane Rolland Spring 2013 collection which instantly restored my faith.

The sleek jumpsuit, as you know, is right up my alley. I love everything about this look, from the fit to the length, the smooth cream colour to the conical detailing around the neckline.

Factor in the bright-red lip and the superstar attitude and this look is easily one of my favourites from the festival – and there is not a red carpet in sight.

Paz Vega In Stéphane Rolland Couture – ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Paz Vega In Stéphane Rolland Spring 2013 Couture - 'Jimmy P (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Paz Vega took to the red carpet this evening for the ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian)’ premiere during Cannes Film Festival at Grand Théâtre Lumière in France this evening.

I think Cheryl Cole had a lucky escape, because this Stéphane Rolland Spring 2013 Couture gown is just a mess.

The sheer part midway down the legs is what ruins it.

But overall it just looks unfinished and sloppy. Her lacklustre styling is not helping matters either.

This is my least favourite look so far both from the designer and the event.

Chopard jewels completed her look.

Cheryl Cole In Zuhair Murad – ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Cheryl Cole In Zuhair Murad - 'Jimmy P (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Like Fan Bingbing on Wednesday, Cheryl Cole broke a long standing Cannes Film Festival tradition this evening at the ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian)’ premiere.

The UK star, who usually only makes one appearance during this festival, opted not to wear Stéphane Rolland as expected; instead she wore a Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 gown.

Honestly, I’m not that surprised considering I failed to picture any of the looks from the recent Stéphane Rolland Spring 2013 Couture working for the petite singer.

This rich maroon sheer long-sleeve gown with beaded embellishments is more fitting to her Cannes glam style, with a sexy bouffant with a loose braid completing her look.

Last year the L’Oreal girls worked bold colours on the red carpet, however, this year it appears to be all about a more natural look.

Did Cheryl make the right gown choice?

Solange Knowles In Stéphane Rolland Couture – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Solange Knowles In Stéphane Rolland Couture - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Solange Knowles made her Cannes Film Festival debut on the red carpet this evening for ‘The Great Gatsby’ premiere, which also served as the opening ceremony.

I remember the hairs that stood up on the back of my neck when I saw this stunning Stéphane Rolland Fall 2012 feather-accented caramel gown taking to the runway. Sadly, the same effect didn’t happen this evening.

While I love the gown, her Chopard jewels and that orange-red lip, the gown loses its fierceness with that thin gold belt.

I would have preferred the warrior princess runway belt and a smaller Jimmy Choo clutch.

Knowing Solange was attending this event, I think I may have set my expectations too high.

Is anyone feeling the mehness of this look?

Janice Man In Stéphane Rolland – 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards

Janice Man In Stéphane Rolland - 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards

Janice Man looked stunning on the red carpet of the 2013 Hong Kong Film Awards on Saturday evening.

The actress and model wore an asymmetric, dual-coloured Stéphane Rolland gown from the Fall 2012 Couture collection.

This dress would be extremely hard for most women to pull off, but it absolutely works on Janice, thanks in part to her pin-thin figure.

The two-tone colours, the draping and the long-sleeve make this totally unique and a major stand-out, and Janice was smart to pair the dress with the exact belt as was worn on the runway, as it’s the perfect accent piece.

She was also smart to opt out of the gloves worn by the model on the runway, as they are distracting and take the dress from stand-out to over-done.

This is one of my favorite red carpet looks in a very long time. I applaud Janice for taking the risk with this dress, because in my book, the risk totally paid off.
