2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Don’t Look Back” Premiere & Photocall

In the kindest possible way, Monica Bellucci and Sophie Marceau need to get a room because it was almost impossible to find separate pictures of them on the red carpet.

At the Don’t Look Back (Ne Te Retourne Pas) premiere during Cannes, Monica Bellucci oozed megawatt sex appeal, whilst showing off her sexy curves in an off-the-shoulder Christian Dior silk gown with a matching Dior clutch.

Her décolletage was decorated with an exquisite necklace.

Red carpet glamour doesn’t get any hotter than this.

Sophie Marceau also wore red.

Normally this would maybe considered this a fashion faux pa, but these woman are so close I assume this dual red strapless look was planned.

The one-time Bond girl wore a YSL Editor Soir strapless column dress, with matching heels.

A gorgeous necklace also completed her look.

Sophie’s look was more casual at the photocall earlier in the day, when she wore a strapless lurex Missoni Spring 2009 silver jumpsuit.

The jumpsuit was paired with a gold obi-style belt and grey t-bar heels.

Monica opted for a all black ensemble for the photocall, adding some on trend nude Christian Louboutin d’Orsay heels.

I make this event a tie. Monica wins at the premiere, and Sophie wins at the photocall.

Who Wore YSL Better? Olga Kurylenko or Julie Gayet

When Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko was promoting Quantum of Solace in Amsterdam, she wore this outstanding black bowed Yves Saint Laurent Resort 2009 fuchsia silk gown, which she complimented with matching fuchsia earrings, with an ivory teardrop.

French actress Julie Gayet wore the very same gown in black, to the Spring Fever premiere during Cannes Film Festival yesterday evening.

As elegant as Julie’s gown is, Olga’s fuchsia version is so much more interesting, vivid and vibrant, so she wins for me.


Who Wore YSL Better? Kristin Scott Thomas or Diane Kruger

Kristin Scott Thomas graced the red carpet at the BAFTA Awards in London looking exquisite, wearing a YSL strapless gown. The gown had a black bejeweled bodice, with a cobalt blue silk skirt and instantly lit up the red carpet.

The actress braved the rain, accessorizing her dress with a black pashmina, and a gold trimmed YSL box clutch.

I thought this gown couldn’t become anymore breath-taking until Diane Kruger wore it to the Metropolitan Opera’s 125th Anniversary Gala last month.

Diane knew she was wearing a gem of a gown, so she kept her accessories to a bare minimum.

I truly believe Diane really shone in this gown, so she wins for me.

Tilda Swinton Was Actually The First To Wear The YSL Caged Heels

There has been much discussion today about the YSL caged heels, and who actually wore them first.

David has kindly pointed out that it was in fact Tilda Swinton and not Becki Newton, as I had stated earlier nor, Ciara, as kindly pointed out by Profashionelle.

Tilda wore the silver caged heels with a dove grey YSL Spring 2009 pant suit, during the Berlin Film Festival last month, when she attended the premiere of The Dust Of Time.

Regular readers will remember that I kinda disowned Tilda during that time, as she was sporting some frock horrors, and as a result I missed this look. And it’s not at all bad, in fact this is one of her best looks this year, so thanks to David who made me go back and search for this.

If you are lusting after these heels as much as myself and Nik, you can purchase them at Matches Fashion, who have the YSL Booties for £905. Whereas Luisa via Roma have the YSL cage boots (€1,100), the YSL cage booties (€890) and the YSL cage sandals (€650).

Who Wore YSL Better? Kristin Scott Thomas or Duffy

Modifications can improve a dress, or they can ruin a dress. Duffy did the latter when she attended the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes last month, wearing a shorten version of a chic YSL dress.

Kristin Scott Thomas wore her beautiful velvet bow strapless dress as it was intended, when she arrived the Critics’ Choice Awards, carrying an embellished clutch.

If you are still undecided as to who wore it better, maybe the heels will help.

Kristen wore a gorgeous pair of YSL satin sandals, whereas Duffy opted for the much worn YSL Trib Two pumps.

Even without the heels, Kristen wins this very easily for me.
