Stacy Martin In Prada – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes

Stacy Martin attended the amfAR Gala Cannes, held on Thursday (May 25) during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

For the occasion, she wore a metallic Prada gown with no accouterments.

At first glance, I thought how bare Stacy looked, but after taking a moment to digest her look, I absolutely love that she left all necklaces and bracelets at home, and just let her gown do the talking.

The silvery mint color is delightful, and of course that bodice-lining beading is all the jewels she needs.

I’m also a huge fan of the beauty decisions made here. The simple, slightly undone blowout is perfectly effortless, and the contrast of the dark berry lips and gold highlighted eyes are masterful with the light-colored gown.

Nicole Kidman In Chanel – amfAR Gala Cannes

Nicole Kidman has been on a chic streak of BDOTW success at the Cannes Film Festival, so my hopes were high for her entrance at the amfAR Gala Cannes on Thursday (May 25).

While she did take us on a flight of fancy in a Chanel Couture Pre-Fall 2017 gown that didn’t skimp on the feathered frou, this heavier look won’t rank as one of my top picks for her at Cannes.

With the sharply bold shoulder, the dress featured an intense silhouette that walked a line of darker mystere than her previous looks. That’s perfectly fine, but not when styled with such a severe bun that led to an ageing effect.

The pink belt did help lighten the mood, with Harry Winston jewels rounding out the look.

Rita Ora In Chanel – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes

Rita Ora is performing tonight at amfAR Gala Cannes, held on Thursday (May 25) during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

One thing about Rita is she always keeps us on our stiletto-clad toes, as she took a frothy turn towards girly femininity in a Chanel embellished frock styled with Paula Cademartor ‘Bella’ sandals before taking to the stage.

Despite its sugary quality, it was a rather darling look that channeled a softer, fanciful spirit.

I did lose her waist a bit, but she worked her angles and the backless detail to her advantage on most occasions.

Perhaps the mod, ’60s bouffant-style hair was a bit much, but this is Rita, after all.

Her last look out at Cannes was underwhelming to some of you, so how do you like this 180-degree departure?

Eva Longoria In Elie Saab – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes

Eva Longoria attended the amfAR Gala during the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 25).

The actress wore a beautifully crafted Elie Saab gown with diamond jewels to accent.

After a stunning first turn at Cannes, Eva has put forward two very disappointing looks, and I’m afraid this one is only slightly better in my book.

It pains me to say it about an Elie Saab gown, but this just isn’t fabulous on Eva. The gown itself is stunning, but it makes Eva look boxy. Perhaps if the bodice was altered a bit, it would help?

Her hair isn’t helping matters, either. Those ultra-curled tendrils are very prom, and very wrong.

Am I being too harsh, or do you agree?

Marion Cotillard In Self-Portrait – Annabel’s & Chopard Party

The Chopard and Annabel’s Gentleman’s Evening took place at the Hotel Martinez during Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 24) with Marion Cotillard in attendance.

The French actress wore a Self-Portrait Spring 2017 dress which she reinterpreted as a shirt; pairing the one shoulder piece with black trousers, thigh-high boots or tights. It’s really hard to tell against that black background.

Either way most of the love I had for this look has disappeared.

What was fun and fresh, has become laboured and overcooked.

I’m not going to hold it against Marion. I’m sure she enjoying this new experimental phase.
