Araya A. Hargate In Ashi Studio Couture – ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Sicario" Premiere - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Araya A. Hargate attended the premiere of ‘Sicario’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

Upon seeing the Thai actress glide down the red carpet like a beautiful swan I said to myself, ‘This is more like it.’

Not slit to the thigh, not bedazzled, not a bedsheet pretending to be a gown, this Ashi Studio Spring 2015 Couture gown, with its delicate embroidery and feather-festooned hemline, is what I have been craving at Cannes.

Drama, glamour and a touch of originality.

This should rank in my top 10 for this festival.

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé – ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett attended the premiere of ‘Sicario’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

As it wasn’t her movie, perhaps Cate made an effort to take a backseat when she opted to wear this Armani Privé Spring 2015 black gown.

The issue is when you are Cate Blanchett, there are no backseats to be had –this subdued offering still screams elegance.

Some might not be wowed, but this understated look still grabbed my attention.

Alicia Vikander attended the premiere of ‘Sicario’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

As one of the ambassadors for Louis Vuitton, I was not surprised to see the Swedish actress donning a look from their Resort 2016 collection.

‘Resort 2016? Already?’ I hear you cry.

Well, considering nearly every piece from the Fall 2014 collection onwards has been worn, Resort is all that’s left which is fresh and new. And that is exactly what Alicia is bringing to the table.

The look is chic and modern, while making a quiet impact on this busy red carpet.

Petra Nemcova In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Sicario" Premiere - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Petra Nemcova attended the premiere of ‘Sicario’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

I would’ve said that this Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture gown was quite a princess moment for Petra, but I don’t know many princesses who would wear a gown with such a deep plunge.

It really should’ve been modified to keep the twins under control because at present they look like a wardrobe malfunction ready to happen.

On the plus side, this is one of the few season-appropriate gowns we have seen during Cannes.

Aishwarya Rai In Oscar de la Renta – ‘Jazbaa’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Aishwarya Rai In Oscar de la Renta - 'Jazbaa' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Aishwarya Rai attended the ‘Jazbaa’ photocall during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

The goosebumps are back, so she picked a winner.

Before you say this is OTT for a photocall, remember that this is Cannes.

As you know I didn’t get that excited about her first look for this festival, however this bordeaux Oscar de la Renta Fall 2015 gown is the kind of drama I expect from Aishwarya.

While the real winner here is her unquestionable beauty, with the gown only serving to enhance it, I’m delighted to see her back on top form.

Slay mama, slay.
