Runway To "Lascars" Press Conference – Diane Kruger In Lanvin


Woohoo. She’s arrived.

Last night Diane Kruger attended a press conference during Cannes Film Festival for the animated movie Lascars, and she’s already giving us high fashion.

She wore a short pink Lanvin dress with puff sleeves, tights and Stuart Weitzman ‘Jardin’ T-Strap sandals.

This dress was originally presented as at top on the runway. Maybe that’s because it was too short to be considered a dress.

I’m not crazy about Diane’s shoe choice.

The tights I get because of the length of the skirt, but the angle of the picture ruins this a bit for me because I can see the inside lining of the dress.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Vengeance” Premiere

I waited a week for a Valentino gown to grace the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, then two come along at once.

We haven’t seen Evangeline Lilly on the red carpet since the Emmy Awards, back in September 2008 but she hasn’t lost any of her sparkle.

We are more use to seeing The Lost actress covered in dirt running through a jungle, but she looked stunning opting for a backless lace Valentino Spring 2009 Couture embroidered gown with cut out panels.

The hem modified from the runway, but it doesn’t diminish her gown in anyway.

Hopefully we will get to see more from the newly appointed L’Oreal ambassador.

Many of you felt disappointed when Eva Longoria wore your favourite Atelier Versace gown on the red carpet last week.

I can now sympathize because I had booked marked this Armani Privé Spring 2009 black sequined dress for Cate Blanchett, but it was worn by Isabelle Huppert.

The shorten hem takes away some of the magic of this dress, but Isabelle was right to do this. The longer version would’ve suited Cate better, because she’s so tall and statuesque.

All that said I love neckline.

Judge Shu Qi arrived wearing bubble gum pink strapless Valentino Pre-Fall 2009 gown with a bow detail on her side.

That’s 4 Valentino gowns in 1 evening. I am not worthy.

Tan Zhuo opted for silver t-bar heels with her shimmering champagne Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 flapper dress.

Robin Wright Penn wore a black Narciso Rodriguez gown with a criss-cross detail on her back.

You may remember Jennifer Aniston wore this same dress in red,on the cover of the Vogue US December 2008 issue.

The forever elegant Kristin Scott Thomas arrived wearing a navy tiered Lanvin gown.

Her finishing touches of a chic up ‘do, drop earrings, and black clutch, perfected her look.

Asia Argento opted for a navy blue tiered strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with a stunning necklace.

I’m on the fence with Michelle Yeoh strapless nude Roberto Cavalli gown.

I’m just not sure if all that embroidered detail on the bust is too busy for such a neutral gown.

Laetitia Hallyday wore a fabulous Dolce & Gabbana tulle mermaid hem gown, unfortunately we have seen this gown too many times before.

Runway To "UP" LA Premiere – Michelle Monaghan In Peter Som


On a bright sunny Saturday afternoon in Hollywood, Michelle Monaghan attended the LA premiere of the animated movie UP.

Her splashy print Peter Som Fall 2009 dress, matched the sun in terms of brightness. I adore the colours, the print, the length, and I even prefer her pink waist belt, as it pops more than the runway blue.

The lilac heels are also a delight. Someone could have easily paired this dress with black heels, but I’m thankful Michelle didn’t.

She is head-to-toe perfection, as I always expect from Michelle. She always delivers.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – "Agora" Premiere

Finally, some Valentino on the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival.

I’ve been waiting for this moment, and I wasn’t let down.

Rachel Weisz was an absolute vision, wearing a green strapless ombre Valentino Fall 2009 chiffon gown with a thigh high split to her Agora premiere during Cannes last night.

She wore her silky brunette locks to one side, showing off her gold earrings, which matched her stack of bracelets.

The gold theme continued to her Christian Louboutin satin d’Orsay pumps, and her matching clutch.

Rachel is one of my favourite of Cannes, without question.

For the photocall, Rachel wore a lace olive green Christian Dior sheath dress.

Nude Louboutin’s, and gold bracelets completed this very sophisticated look.

I think appearing on nearly ever worst dressed list at the Costume Institute Gala, helped her get back to her best.

Who Wore Christian Dior Better? Aishwarya Rai, Gisele Bundchen or Bae Doo-na

Despite Cannes Film Festival bringing us some of the best red carpet looks I’ve been craving for all year, we have seen many re-runs.

Korean actress Bae Doo-Na was the third celebrity to wear the strapless red satin Christian Dior Spring 2009 gown, which has a draped detail on the hip.

She wore it when she arrived at the Air Doll Premiere during Cannes Film Festival last week, with a gorgeous red and gold clutch.

Gisele Bundchen was slightly over-dress when she took to the stage at the launch of SKY HDTV in Brazil last month.

Aishwarya Rai was the first to wear this dress nearly a year ago, to the 2008 International Indian Film Academy Awards, whilst carrying a silver jeweled clutch.

Despite Gisele wearing this gown to a slighty informal event, she simply glows, and she’s wearing the least make-up.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – "A Prophet" Premiere

Leila Bekhti wore the same Lanvin strapless dress which Drew Barrymore wore to the He’s Just Not The Into You LA premiere earlier this year.

This Spring 2009 strapless black dress has a contrasting nude silk detail at bust, and kicks out into an airy pouf shape skirt just above the knee.

Two tone heels, and a matching box clutch complete the look.

Gabrielle Lazure stood out wearing a metallic blue Alberta Ferretti Fall 2009 mini dress, with contrasting 3/4 length sleeves.

I’m not so crazy about her metallic ankle strap heels, but the colour works well with her dress.

Julie Gayet wore a very sexy Rue du Mail Spring 2009 dress, with a tulle overlay on the skirt.

The dress is nice enough, but I just love her Roger Vivier colourful heels.

Rachida Brakni’s YSL Spring 2009 black strapless gown doesn’t have much shape to it, but she manages to make this elegant gown work.

A simple bracelet adorns her wrist.

Sarah Marshall wore a navy blue Jitrois leather suit, with crystals embellishing the jacket, and one half of the pants.

What attracted me to this look the most, were Sarah’s Sergio Rossi coil heel sandals.

I fell in love with these unique heels when I saw them in a magazine yesterday, and I can’t believe they’re on the red carpet already.

Amanda Sthers wore an orange strapless mini with her Prada knotted sandals, which are from the Spring 2009 collection.

TV presenter Virginie Efira opted for a sheer pussy-bow black blouse, with a Sonia Rykiel Fall 2008 striped crystal embellished mini skirt.

Juliette Binoche wore her hair down for this premiere, with no floral hair accessories.

She looked elegant in a plunging cream Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2009 gown, with gold and silver sequin details on the bodice, and a silver waistband, from which her gown draped.

Minimal make-up completes the look.

2009 Cannes Film Festival Catch Up

100 Years Of Hong Kong Cinema Party

The beautiful Vicky Zhao Wei, dazzled in her Christian Dior Resort 2009 strapless gown.

I love that pink and baby blue beaded bodice, and that she kept her neck bare.

Mulan Press Conference

At Mulan press conference, Vicky wore Dior again, this time a peachy strapless tiered number, with gold details adorning the bodice and peplum.

The actress opted out of the runway belt.

“Taking Woodstock” Premiere

Even though Tilda Swinton’s companion is wearing wedged heels, she is still no match for Tilda in the height department, as Tilda is wearing blue sole YSL Trib Two heels.

With those infamous heels, she is wearing a black silk Lanvin Fall 2009 gown, with frayed edges.

She opted to loosen the dress around the waist, but I prefer it more fitted, as it was presented on the runway.

“Vengeance” Photo Call

Michelle Ye wore a luscious tropical print Emilio Pucci silk halter gown, with an embellished yoke.

She certainly stands out amongst the boys.

Roberto Cavalli Dinner

I was hoping for more fabulousity at Roberto Cavalli’s boat party, but it appears only Mariah Carey, and her husband attended.

This silk chain print Roberto Cavalli gown, from the menswear Spring 2009 collection, is typical Mariah.

It’s sexy, it’s sassy, it’s dazzling with bling, and it’s showing off just enough of skin.
