Cate Blanchett Will Be This Year’s Cannes Film Festival Jury President

Armani Privé Spring 2008 – ‘Blindness’ Cannes Premiere

As you know Cannes film festival is the highlight of my year, but excitement intensified upon hearing the news that Cate Blanchett was named as the Jury President for 2018 today.

The two time Oscar-winner will be the 11th woman to head the jury, and following the announcement she put out a statement which said, “I have been to Cannes in many guises over the years; as an actress, producer, in the marketplace, the Gala-sphere and in Competition but never solely for the sheer pleasure of watching the cornucopia of films this great festival harbours.”

“This festival plays a pivotal role in bringing the world together to celebrate story; that strange and vital endeavour that all peoples share, understand and crave.”

I don’t know about you, but my mouth is watering at the prospect of the Armani Prive and Givenchy Couture pieces she’s likely to wear.

The Cannes film festival will take place from May 8-19.

Fan Bingbing In Elie Saab – Cannes Film Festival Press Conference

On the last day of Cannes Film Festival, Fan Bingbing attended a press conference dressed in Elie Saab.

We all know how petite the Asian actress is, but she was looking 6ft tall in this well-tailored one-piece.

Between the sleek cut and the flare trousers they really help elongate her figure, but I’m pretty sure she’s got some platform heels helping enhance this statuesque portrait.

De Beers jewels and wavy tresses completed her picture perfect look.
