Cannes – The festival of great Summer daytime looks

I have always been a little obsessed with the Cannes film festival. It epitomises sheer glamour and elegance in the most beautiful of settings. The roll call of the most beautiful, most talented, most famous and sometimes the most infamous have all walked that famous red carpet, publicising everything from films to L’Oreal beauty.  I went to Cannes myself in 2008, when I was pregnant with Joe, and must admit I fell in love with the aura of glitz and glamour of the place.

Memories from my trip to  Cannes
This year’s festival has been one of the most stylish and glamorous in recent memory, with Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Blake Lively, Marion Cotillard, Cheryl Cole and Jessica Chastain just some of the stunning stars who have captivated with a series of exquisite gowns. But Cannes is not just known for the spectacular evening gowns. Mid Day photo calls mean there are also some pretty terrific daytime looks to enjoy and influence our Summer wardrobes. Theses are looks that we can adapt to suit our style, much more than the Givenchy and Armani evening dresses that we can all but dream of ever wearing.

With Cannes now over for another year, I have selected some of my favourite daytime looks from what is always a sartorial dream. Grace of Monaco stars Nicole and Paz Vega take my ultimate daytime awards for their timeless and elegant looks, but a special mention must also go to Jessica Chastain, who shows that black can be a perfect look on a sunshine day. I have also included Sofia Coppola. Her look was actually from the red carpet, but the midi length makes it perfect for a special occasion held in daytime hours.
