Lou Doillon In Saint Laurent – Deauville American Film Festival

Lou Doillon In Saint Laurent - Deauville American Film Festival

Lou Doillon has been showing a lot of label love to Saint Laurent while taking to the red carpet during Deauville American Film Festival.

Opening ceremony: The French model and actress – who always looks slightly dishevelled yet chic at the same time – wore a pretty black v-neck dress with a crystal-embellished panel and a black leather bow accent, which provided the perfect mix of sexy and sweet. A Chanel clutch and Saint Laurent ‘Escarpins’ patent-leather pumps completed the head-to-toe black look.

‘Blue Jasmine’ premiere: In no danger of upstaging Cate Blanchett, Lou opted to wear another Saint Laurent LBD; this time the frock was strapless and the look was void of any dress-enhancing accessories.

I think it goes without saying that the first look was my favourite of the two.

Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx – ‘White House Down’ Promo Tour

White House Down 1

Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx have being busy in Europe promoting their latest movie, ‘White House Down’, starting at the Deauville American Film Festival in France, plus last night they were in Germany for the Berlin premiere.

Deauville American Film Festival photocall: The actors both wore jeans, with Channing opting for a simple black shirt and charcoal blazer and Jamie adding a patterned Givenchy shirt.

White House Down 2

Deauville American Film Festival premiere: For the premiere the guys suited up, with Channing looking devilishly handsome in an ink-blue suit and striped tie, and Jamie looking equally debonair in midnight-blue, black combo.

Berlin premiere: While I like that Jamie switched things up at the Berlin premiere wearing a dark-chocolate blazer and grey pants, the overall look feels a size too big. I prefer the fit of the previous premiere. Channing had no such problems in his sleek black Dolce & Gabbana suit with a polka-dot tie.

Who was the better dressed? Channing, as I preferred both his premiere looks.

Jena Malone In Wes Gordon – ‘The Wait’ Deauville American Film Festival Screening

Jena Malone In Wes Gordon - 'The Wait' Deauville American Film Festival Screening

Jena Malone attended the Deauville American Film Festival screening of ‘The Wait’ in Deauville, France yesterday evening.

The indie actress wore a Wes Gordon Spring 2013 black sleeveless metallic eyelash chiffon dress featuring a high round neck, a slight racer front and tonal sheer dotted tulle inserts at the sides.

Black Saint Laurent patent-leather pumps, wavy tresses and barely there makeup styled her look.

My first thought was “why is Jena carrying a clutch and a shoulder bag?” but it turns out that the shoulder bag was actually a camera.

Overall I can’t say I am a fan of the look; as sexy as the dress could’ve been, it’s let down by some pretty lacklustre styling.

Jena normally gets it right, but I’m hugely disappointed by this effort.

You can buy Jena’s Wes Gordon metallic eyelash dress from Neiman Marcus.

Cate Blanchett In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Blue Jasmine’ Deauville American Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Christian Dior Couture - 'Blue Jasmine' Deauville American Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett attended the premiere of ‘Blue Jasmine’ held during the 2013 Deauville American Film Festival in Deauville, France on Saturday evening.

This is Cate’s second red carpet appearance wearing a look from the Fall 2013 Couture collections, following the opening ceremony on Friday evening.

On this occasion she selected an exquisite Christian Dior gown with colourful embroidered details.

As beautiful as the gown is, I did have some issues with it.

Firstly, it didn’t photograph all that well in a few pictures. This leads me to my second issue, which is that the gown may have been just an inch or two too long.

On the model the gown barely touches the ground, preventing it from looking like a tent on her.

Is this nearly perfect for you? Or does Cate blow you away in this gown?

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé – Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Cate Blanchett attended the opening ceremony of the 2013 Deauville American Film Festival in Deauville, France this evening.

The Australian actress glided down the red carpet wearing a nude Armani Privé Fall 2013 lightly embellished lace coat-dress, which has been slightly modified from the runway as the silk skirt is shorter than the coat.

Her soft, elegant look is in total contrast to the edgy fashion forward Christopher Kane frock she wore earlier this week, which many of you didn’t like.

Initially I was craving a pop of colour, but on reflection this may have been a distraction much like that feathered detail the model wore with this look.

It great to see her back wearing Armani. The house where she belongs. A simple updo and satin Armani Privé ankle strap pumps completed her look.

Does the Queen meet with your approval on this occasion, or is the look too one note for you?

Salma Hayek In Stella McCartney – 38th Deauville American Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Salma Hayek attended the 38th Deauville American Film Festival Closing Ceremony on Saturday night.

For the event the actress chose to wear a gown by British designer Stella McCartney.

Salma looked her stunning self on the red carpet, but I’m not sure everything about this dress works.

While the skirt is a great length – showing offer her slim ankles and peep-toe platforms – the reverse scoop bodice seems to jolt. Perhaps it’s because I’m so used to seeing her enhancing rather than hiding her cleavage?

I love the pop of colour provided by her aqua Judith Leiber East/West crocodile clutch and Graziela earrings.
