amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS 2008 – Cannes Film Festival

Finally someone had the cahones to wear the Dolce & Gabbana organza fantasy ball gowns.

I was hoping that Sarah Jessica Parker would have worn the green one to the Sex And The City New York Premiere next week, but I will have to make do with Rose Mcgowan.

She totally rocked this stunning gown. It is just a beautiful as I imagined it off the runway.

French Vogue Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld and her daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld leave me breathless in their stunning dresses.

Carine is wearing a red hot one-shouldered animal print Balmain Fall 2008 dress with a slit to the thigh and metallic detailing on the hip.

Julia also wears a dress from the Balmain Fall 2008 collection.

Her dress is equally as sexy as her mothers, but shorter. Her black dress is also one-shouldered, with lace detail at the hem and on the hip. She also wore her beloved black YSL tribute platform sandals, which she also wore yesterday.

Natalie Portman has obviously gotten wind of the fact that many people – not me – were tiring of her wearing Lanvin, so she opted for this beautifully structured Givenchy Spring 2008 Couture dress.

She needs to be careful not to cut herself on those spikes.

Model Natalia Vodianova wore a gold strapless Valentino Spring 2008 Couture gown with a tiered embellished skirt.

Elsa Pataki wears the same Alberta Ferretti dress which Bar Refaeli wore last Wednesday last week.

What a faux pa.

There is no greater ambassador for Marchesa than the designer Georgina Chapman.

Tonight she arrived in this very dramatic silk tulle Marchesa Spring 2008 ball gown with gold embroidered leaf appliqué.

She wore her dress with Christian Louboutin Coxinelle T-bar pumps.

STUNNING.

Petra Nemcova also wore a Marchesa Spring 2008 gown.

Her white strapless gown was much less dramatic, but equally as beautiful.

Couture Queen Dita von Teese is exquisite in this violet Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2007 Couture chiffon military-esqe gown.

The dress has badges of honour as embellishments and beaded epaulets.

Oh so cute.

Margherita Missoni looks stunning with her hair tied back, in this sweetheart neck-lined Missoni Spring 2008 strapless multi-coloured printed gown.

I love this coral coloured strapless Marchesa gown on Mary J. Blige. She is not afraid of colour, and it shows.

The embroidery on the gown is outstanding.

Joely Richardson shows off her lean figure in this stripey Ralph Lauren Spring 2008 gown, with long satin opera gloves for added dramatic effect.

Tamara Mellon usually sticks to black white and navy, so I am glad during Cannes she is wearing more colours.

This strapless bandeau dress is from the Balmain Spring 2008 collection, and is ultra feminine. I really love the wing embroidered detail.

Michelle Yeoh is wearing this very summery Roberto Cavalli Fall 2008 A-line dress with flowered embroidery.

You wouldn’t expect a dress like this to be part of a Fall collection.

Donatella Versace is stunning as ever in her own designs. The colour is gorgeous and dress fits like a glove.

This dress has the same lattice detail we have seen on a few other dresses, during this Film Festival.

Sharon Stone LOVES animal print. On most occasions she looks tacky, but not tonight.

For once she works it well. The jeweled detail on his halter-neck Roberto Cavalli dress is what I think stops it from heading down to tackyville.

Madonna is much less dramatic tonight in her coral satin pussy-bow dress with nude heels.

The pussy-bow dress is a preview of what we will see during on Stella McCartney’s Spring 2009 runway. Yes 4 months from now.

Now that is what you call star power.

Actress Aissa Maiga is wearing this Christian Dior Fall 2007 hip embellished dress, which despite being a few seasons old it looks like it’s from a recent Spring collection in white.

Not many have dared to wear the crazy designs from Marc Jacobs Louis Vuitton Spring 2008 collection.

Milla Jovovich dared to, and looks fabulous.

Coral appears to be the colour of the night.

Diane Kruger is simple elegant in her 20s inspired silver embroidered Chanel Haute Couture gown with her marcel waves.

I love how she is holding her delicate train.

Eva Herzigova opted for a simple black strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown, which covered up a lot more than the Dior dress she wore yesterday.

Very plain for Juliette Lewis.

This is the best dress I have seen Star Jones wear during Cannes. The embroidery and the feathered hem are delightful.

Cannes Film Festival – Che Premiere

It is official Ladies Love Lanvin.

French Vogue Editor-in-Chief, Carine Roitfeld joins the growing list of ladies wearing Lanvin this week.

Carine wore the stunning Lanvin Spring 2008 gown which appeared in the print advertising campaign for the fashion house.

If I could own one piece from the Lanvin Spring 2008 collection, this would be my choice, and I would wear it as Carine wore it, with the wide waist belt.

Carine is STUNNING in this dress. I can not gush enough.

Carine’s daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, stuck to her usual rock n’ roll style wearing this cut-out black sheer dress, with a wide belt and YSL tribute platform sandals.

Naomi Campbell is a beautiful woman, but I have 3 pieces of advice for her:

1. No-Lye relaxer
2. Bangs
3. Wig

Otherwise she will be bald by the time she is 40.

Apart from her hairline issues, Naomi Campbell looks stunning in this white haltered Dolce & Gabbana sequined embellished gown.

Eva Herzigova bravely lets it all hang out in this sheer Christian Dior Spring 2008 gown with lace appliqué. Under her gown she wears a black corset and big pants ala Bridget Jones.

She decorates her neck with a V shaped ornament.

Natalie Portman is the woman who has been leading the charge for Lanvin.

Here she is wearing her 4th piece from the Lanvin Spring 2008 collection.

This orange strapless sweetheart neckline dress is tiered with ruffles.

Michelle Yeoh wore a turquoise Roberto Cavalli gown with a violet rose print at the hem.

Catalina Sandino Moreno wore a lilac haltered Alberta Ferretti gown, with feathers cascading down the skirt.

Cannes Film Festival – Monday Round Up

“Two Lovers” Premiere

The Chanel Resort 2009 collection was only 5 days ago and Gwyneth Paltrow is already wearing it on the red carpet.

With her stunning jewels, Gwyneth wore this midnight blue plunge-neck satin gown with black trim and bow detail.

“Wild Blood” Premiere

I would have loved this dress on Monica Bellucci had it been all white.

“Le Silence de Lorna” Premiere


British actress Kristin Scott Thomas is wearing a royal blue Lanvin Spring 2008 trapeze cut Grecian goddess gown with horsehair hem .

This dress is truly magnificent and on the runway the dress billowed into a mushroom-cloud dress . A true work of art. Lanvin Spring 2008 was one of my favourite collections.

Natalie Portman also wears a Lanvin Spring 2008 cobalt blue silken tiered ruffle cocktail dress .

Although this dress did not appear on the runway, it is distinctively Lanvin in the colour, shape and ruffles.

Chopard Party

Gwyneth Paltrow is also wearing Lanvin Spring 2008. This time it is a ice white asymmetric dress, which she teams with another pair of stunning gladiator heels by Balmain.

Christina Ricci is uber sexy in this slinky black Bottega Veneta Fall 2008 strapless gown. I love the shape she is making whilst posing in this dress.

Dita Von Teese used wear mostly black on the red carpet. Her colours of choice lately have been black and white.

This Dior Couture Fall 2007 dress is typically Dita with the wasp-waist and full-skirt.

Supermodel’s never have a day off look immaculate. Eva Herzigova proves that in this with plunge-neck dress with sequined trim detailing.

Maria Menounos has made a big effort to look fabulous at Cannes, and it is really paying off.

This dress is truly stunning with the rosette detail and the gold sequin embroidery.

Salma Hayek is again sporting the Frida Kahlo hair style. What happened to the sexy Spanish waves she used to wear?

I still feel this is not the real Salma. Too muted in this Gucci Fall 2008 dress, too covered up, too plain. Where is my sexy senorita?

Cannes Film Festival Weekend Red Carpet & Parties Round Up

“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” Premiere

Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford, as usual, looked blissfully happy as they took to the red carpet this weekend. She was wearing a stunning blue silk one-shouldered Bill Blass Fall 2008 gown, whilst he was very dapper in a black suit with a satin tie.

Cate Blanchett wore a grey in a strapless lattice Armani Privé Spring 2008 gown with a necklace from the Chopard Red Carpet collection.

Natalie Portman wore a simple black Chanel gown, but still stood out on the red carpet thanks to her red lipstick.

Looking at Salma Hayek on the red carpet these days is like watching TV on mute. Although her jade silk Balenciaga dress is pretty enough, her whole look seems very subdued.

Maybe it’s the Frida Kahlo hair, but something is just off.

Kelly Brook arrived on the red carpet with her on-again fiance Billy Zane. She was wearing a baby blue daisy-printed cute haltered Luisa Beccaria Spring 2008 dress, with nude Christian Louboutin Catenita platform pumps. He was wearing sneakers on the red carpet…a big no no.

Rachel Leigh Cook was pretty in pink wearing a Elsie Katz Couture Spring 2008 dress, with tulip skirt, a tulle trim and a diamante belt. She accessorized with a Daniel Swarovski bag.

Linda Evangelista wore a dramatic one shoulder champagne silk gown embroidered in sequins from the Lanvin Fall 2008 collection.

Star Jones is sparkling in this see-through beaded dress.

“Vicky Christina Barcelona” Premiere

Penelope Cruz looked like a swan on the Cannes red carpet in a backless white Marchesa gown with 60 carats-worth of Chopard jewelery.

Rebecca Hall matches Penelope in the style stakes, wearing this sea green Alberta Ferretti one-shouldered pleated gown.

Aishwarya Rai opted for a fushica deep plunging Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2008 gown.

Russian-born actress, Svetlana Metkina looks amazing in this pink Balmain Spring 2008 strapless maxi dress.

“Vicky Christina Barcelona” Photocall

Penelope Cruz drove the paparazzi crazy in this steel blue L’Wren Scott Spring 2008 fitted dress with maroon velvet trim.

Quintessentially & Margherita Missoni Cannes Party For OrphanAid Africa

Mischa Barton looks stunning in this Missoni Spring 2008 floral gown. This is her best dress since she arrived at Cannes.

Margherita Missoni wears this gold embellished Missoni Spring 2008 wrap, over her dress whilst carrying a Louis Vuitton Limelight clutch.

Vanity Fair Party

Mischa Barton sure does love her headbands.

For this party Mischa wore a Roberto Cavalli Fall 2008 gown with sequined detail.

Vanilla Gorilla Party

Maria Menounos attended a party on the Bud Light Yacht, in a mint green silk devore halter dress with knot detail from the Catherine Malandrino Spring/Summer 2008 collection.

"Kung Fu Panda" Premiere – Cannes Film Festival Red Carpet

Last year at the Cannes Film Festival Angelina Jolie wowed us by wearing a yellow Ungaro gown, which I think was the first time we had seen her wear something other than black or grey.

This year she wows us again, mostly because she is pregnant with twins, but also because she is glowing in this forest green cleavage-baring chiffon Max Azria Atelier gown.

Aishwarya Rai was again on the red carpet, wearing a stunning nude beaded Giorgio Armani Spring 2008 gown with a matching clutch, which was spotted by High Heel Confidential.

This is Eva Longoria’s second stunning Versace Couture Spring 2008 gown, although I do think this dress would be better suited to someone much taller, as the tulle skirt and train seem to overwhelm her.

This gorgeous one-shoulder ivory gown has silver beaded accents, which the actress wore with silver shoes.

Lucy Liu is exquisite in this soft pink Roberto Cavalli Fall 2008 gown, embroidered with mother-of-pearl flowers. The colour compliments her skin well.

Whilst everyone wore gowns, Rachel Leigh Cook wore this strapless empire-jewel-waisted cocoon-type dress. This was a perfect choice for the young actress.

Australian singer Natalie Imbruglia, opted for a fuschia Alberta Ferretti plunge-neck and backless dress.

She is at Cannes to promote Elise a new Australian indie film.

For those of you who wonder why since I started this blog Phoebe Price has been #1 on my Fashion Failures list, please witness Exhibit A.
