Li Yuchun In Gareth Pugh – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Li Yuchun In Gareth Pugh - 'Cleopatra' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

While ordinarily I would frown at the fact that Li Yuchun is not wearing a gown on the red carpet for the ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival this evening, however, I love the boldness of the look.

I mean, how many other people could make this Gareth Pugh Spring 2013 look work? I can only think of one: Tilda Swinton, or possibly Evan Rachel Wood.

The unique look features a ruffled high-neck top with a dramatic flowing train and wide-leg pants.

I’m of two minds about the black shoes. On one hand it breaks up all the red – separating her from the red carpet. On the other, it feels like a safe choice when everything else was so daring.

It may not be to everyone’s liking, but she certainly got herself noticed.

Araya A. Hargate In Zac Posen – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Araya A Hargate In Zac Posen - 'Cleopatra' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Araya A. Hargate made a fairy tale-like entrance onto the red carpet this evening for the ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival premiere.

The Thai-British actress and model looked like princess wearing a Zac Posen Spring 2013 gown, which I’m sure Fan Bingbing and Zhang Yuqi are kicking themselves that they didn’t get their hands on first.

Araya’s green gown featuring a satin bodice and tons of tulle skirt was further dramatized with cat-eye makeup.

Simple styling, as a gown like this speaks for itself, included silver earrings, a Devi Kroell clutch and a sweeping updo.

While I like the dramatic nature of this look, after all this is what Cannes is about, I really wish the satin part of the dress didn’t fall any further than her hips. That trailing piece really puts me off loving this look.

Milla Jovovich In Prada – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Milla Jovovich In Prada -  'Cleopatra' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Milla Jovovich was back on the red carpet this evening attending the ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival premiere held at the 60th Anniversary Theatre this evening in France.

We love Miuccia Prada, but she can’t make a gown. This was evident when Florence Welch attended the premiere for ‘The Great Gatsby’ last week, and here we have another poor attempt at creating a gown worthy of the occasion.

The gown features a loose black silk spaghetti strapped top with a navy embellished skirt, which would look better as a bed throw.

It is just an unflattering heap.

As I say every Cannes Film Festival, No Miuccia, NO.

Dita von Teese In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Dita von Teese In Elie Saab Couture -  'Cleopatra' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

We’ve seen Dita Von Teese attend several events in and around Cannes Film Festival, but this evening she finally took to the red carpet for the ‘Cleopatra’ premiere.

The burlesque star gives us yet another look at the Elie Saab Spring 2013 collection on the red carpet at this festival, selecting a coral red lace three-quarter length sleeve frock with shimmering embroidered details.

More touches of red via her satin Louboutin pumps, a minaudière and signature lips and nails were to be had, with her hair teased to perfection in her favoured retro ‘do.

I’m glad Miss Teese is laying of the black for a while at least.

Rosario Dawson In Marchesa – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Rosario Dawson was able to quickly redeem herself this evening at the ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, following the poor showing on the red carpet last night.

On this occasion she wore a Marchesa Resort 2013 gown.

The sparking golden creation featured puffy sleeves and a fishtail skirt that she styled with a diamond cuff, which wasn’t needed, and a Ferragamo clutch.

Sweeping locks and a hot red lip colour completed her look.

This is much improved for me. What say you?

Jessica Chastain In Versace Collection – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain In Versace Collection - 'Cleopatra' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain returned to Cannes Film Festival, taking to The 60th Anniversary Theatre this evening for the ‘Cleopatra’ premiere in France.

The red-haired beauty looked regal, wearing a Versace Collection gown which was fit for a Queen.

Her long-sleeved off-white silk gown, featuring a cape which trailed behind her into a dramatic train, was styled with a stunning sapphire sautoir and the trombino sapphire ring from the Elizabeth Taylor Bulgari collection.

Jessica is giving us a preview of the upcoming Versace Collection Spring/Summer 2014.

From this look it would appear this collection will focus less on the studs, cut-outs and slashed-to-the-thigh gowns the brand is known for, but we will have to wait and see.

‘The Hangover Part III’ LA Premiere Menswear Round Up

Hangover Premiere Menswear

The men of ‘The Hangover Part III’ also took to the red carpet at Westwood Village Theatre in Westwood, California on Monday evening. Thankfully, it wasn’t the black-suit fest we are used to.

Bradley Cooper: I was most impressed with Bradley’s custom Gucci suit; he stepped way past the limits of usual red carpet menswear (unless you are Ryan Gosling or Jamie Foxx), donning a rust-coloured notched-lapel two-button suit. Pairing the look with a pale-blue shirt was also a bit of a risk when a white shirt would’ve been an easier choice. What I love most about this look is that I can finally see Bradley’s handsome face again. The beard was getting a bit out of control.

Justin Bartha: Going for a head-to-toe sleek Etro look, the actor wore a grey-and-blue plaid woven suit with a blue dress shirt. I love the accents, which prevent this look from feeling one note; they include a navy silk polka-dot tie, a silk paisley pocket square and suede two-tone brogues.

Zach Galifianakis: My wish for this look is that Zach had matched his jacket to his pants. Either colour would’ve worked. As presented it doesn’t work for me.

Emma Roberts In Camilla and Marc – Glamour Presentation of ‘These Girls’

Emma Roberts In Camilla and Marc - Glamour Presentation of ‘These Girls’

Emma Roberts joined Dianna Agron on the red carpet last night for the Glamour presentation of ‘These Girls’ at Joe’s Pub in New York City on Monday evening.

With the weather being so gloomy in London, I forgot that it’s actually summer, so this Camilla and Marc ‘Adaptation’ dress from the Spring 2013 collection is perfect for the season.

I’m tempted to say that the bright-hued two-tone pink-and-white high neck dress with a wrap-style skirt should’ve been styled with a different pair of shoes than the black Kirkwood sandals Emma selected but, as the young actress rarely wears anything other than black pumps, I will give her a pass.

Would you have preferred a different-coloured shoe, or does this edgy shoe choice work for you as presented?
