The Cannes fashion fest has begun

My favourite feast of fashion is finally here, and I am unbelievably excited. Yes, the Cannes film festival has begun, and with the likes of Sienna Miller, Lupita Nyong’o, Natalie Portman, Naomi Watts, and (sighs) Fan Bingbing in attendence, the bar is set for some amazing fashion looks.

I love the drama and decadence of Cannes, the gorgeous weather and stunning scenary just seems to lend itself to the most exquisite of photo opps, and the stars always seem to deliver in abundance. Who can forget last years movie star masterclass from Blake Lively, when she appeared in beautiful look after beautiful look. Other stars who have ruled that red carpet include Jessica Chastain, Freida Pinto and the always immaculate Diane Kruger.

It remains to be seen who will be the Queen of the Cannes red carpet this year, but the smart money is probably on fashion’s darling Lupita. She made a truly iconic start tonight in jade green Gucci. It was a total dream of a dress. But was it the best dressed? I also loved the stately elegance of Sienna Miller in Lanvin, Fan BingBing in Ralph & Russo, and Naomi Watts in Elie Saab.

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.

The Gatsby Girl premiere and shop the trend at Lipsy

The Great Gatsby is turning out to be the most influential fashion event of 2013. The premiere at the Cannes film festival on Friday was a super stylish event which saw the attendees pulling out all the stops in the style stakes. To put it quite simply, the abundance of beautiful looks on the big screen meant that it was simply unthinkable not to make the same amount of effort off-screen. Most fashion critics even commented on how glamorous the normally low-key star, Carey Mulligan looked on the red carpet, with sleek long hair and a slash of red lipstick.

Great Gatsby Premiere stars

Lipsy has some great Gatsby inspired pieces at the moment. Placing emphasis on the beautiful beading that was so important to the trends of the 1920s, but bringing things bang up to date with shorter lengths and strapless bodices, Lipsy have really excelled in creating pieces that will be perfect for addressing this trend now, but also surviving into next season and proving to be a great option come party season.

Take a look at some of my favourite pieces from the Gatsby trend at Lipsy.
