Aishwarya Rai Bachchan In Michael Cinco Couture – ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Earlier today I was saying how was tempering my feelings in case Aishwarya Rai Bachchan didn’t deliver at Cannes.

What. An. Idiot.

Of course she was always going to deliver, and in a more spectacular and modern way than she did last year.

She swept the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ this evening (May 12) wearing a dramatic gown courtesy Dubai-based designer Michael Cinco.

Detailed with shades of blue, magenta and purple, the Cannes queen looked like a beautiful butterfly who had just shed its cocoon.

A stunning array of complementary De Grisogono jewels, plus glittery eye makeup puts her in the strong running of coming top of my BDOTY list…again.

I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us on Sunday.

Amber Heard In Giambattista Valli Haute Couture – ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Amber Heard made her second appearance on the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ this evening (May 12).

Cannes and gowns are synonymous, but Amber and her stylist Karla Welch are two women who don’t care to play by the rules.

The actress wore a detail orientated Giambattista Valli Spring 2018 Haute Couture mini dress which had an edgy beauty to it which I adore.

Araya A. Hargate In Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture – ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

FINALLY.

It may have taken her five days, but Araya A. Hargate finally gave us a memorable Cannes Film Festival moment this evening (May 12) for the premiere of ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’.

While the embellished sheer gowns have been pleasurable, this Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2017 Couture gown is what I’m hoping to see when I’m constantly refreshing Getty.

A necklace with an asymmetrical neckline has always been a big bug-bear of mine, but this is Cannes, and she’s an Chopard ambassador, so it’s to be expected.

I have a feeling that had she not worn the necklace, she may have kept the furry shoulder accent.

Do you wish she’d kept some of the pageantry from the runway, like the opera gloves perhaps?

Or do you love her presentation as it is?

Praya Lundberg In Julien Macdonald – ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Praya Lundberg made her second appearance on the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ this evening (May 12).

I have always had the Thai L’Oreal ambassador down as a “gown and gala” kinda girl, but she went all the way left in this Julien Macdonald Fall 2016 two piece look.

She may have tempered the look from the runway, but she was still oozing plenty of sultry appeal.

You often feel like these razzle-dazzle looks from Julien Macdonald are overplayed on models and Jennifer Lopez, so how does this look fare on Praya?

Helen Mirren In Elie Saab Haute Couture – ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Helen Mirren graced the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ this evening (May 12).

Usually I don’t greet Fall looks with much love at the festival, but this Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture royal blue gown was fit for a Queen, and Helen is as good a royalty in my eyes.

The medieval theme can’t be denied, so I love how the actress played to up to the vibe with her gold accessories which included Avakian jewels.

Stunning, is an understatement. She always delivers.

Jurors Protest At The ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Kirsten Stewart, Lea Seydoux, Khadja Nin, Ava DuVernay and Cate Blanchett walked the red carpet in protest of the lack of female filmmakers honored throughout the history of the festival at the screening of ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ this evening (May 12) during Cannes Film Festival.

Only 82 films in competition in the official selection have been directed by women since the inception of the Cannes Film Festival whereas 1,645 films in the past 71 years have been directed by men.

Kristen Stewart: The actress wore classic Chanel suit, styled with rebel Roberi & Fraud retro-inspired shades.

Lea Seydoux: Her custom Louis Vuitton gown from the Fall 2018 collection is stunning. I love how it defines her gorgeous figure, and how the ruffled detailing gives the look an interesting dimension.

Khadja Nin: This navy gown was given plenty of African flare with her signature head scarf and sash combo.

Ava DuVernay: I had hoped to see more of Ava at Cannes, but her third outing didn’t disappoint Alberta Ferretti.

Cate Blanchett: The Australian actress wore her second Armani Prive look of the festival. The sensual fabrication was only enhanced by the asymmetrical cut, sculptural hip detail and figure forming fit. Chopard jewels completed her look.

Marion Cotillard In Adam Selman – ‘Angel Face (Gueule D’Ange)’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Following the Chopard Secret Night party, Marion Cotillard was back on the red carpet this morning (May 12) for the Cannes Film Festival photocall for ‘Angel Face (Gueule D’Ange)’.

I love how this Adam Selman Spring 2018 gingham showcases the label’s retro-inspired aesthetic, and embodies the idea of easy dressing for the playful and sexy woman.

The two piece look – which consists of an open-back belted romper and a maxi skirt – feels so fresh and breezy; perfect for a photocall on the French Riviera.

I think some might take issue with the red sandals, but I love the additional pop of colour her which enhances the retro vibe.
