Cannes – Best looks from 2017

Cannes is always the most glamorous and elegant of all the film festivals, I would go as far as to say it is the most fabulous event on the fashion calendar, it is certainly my favourite. This year was a vintage Cannes for style watchers, with appearances by judge and style icon Nicole Kidman, Diane Kruger, Elizabeth Olsen and Lily Collins. In addition, there was an appearance by style maverick Tilda Swinton (who basically slayed in a series of classic looks) and a whole raft of supermodels, including Sara Sampio, Bella Hadid (another lady having a knockout Cannes), Kendall Jenner and veteran Amber Valleta.

The dresses ranged from the slinky to fairytale, and the daytime looks were not to be sniffed at either, with Emily Ratajkowski showing that a little black dress can never go wrong. I also totally fell in love with Lily Collins daytime ensemble which combined a fitted skirt with a striped, one sleeved top. And, shades of green had a moment, with Nicole Kidman in a dress that called to mind a beautiful peacock, and Tilda Swinton in a 1940s style two piece suit that screamed sophistication.

AmFar Gala at the Cannes Film Festival

Even amongst the glitz and glitter of the Cannes Film festival, the AmFar gala is very special, the most glamorous occasion of them all. The annual gala that is held by the Foundation for Aids Research has become a part of the Cannes Calendar, and, for fans of gorgeous frocks being worn by the cream of Hollywood and the world’s top models, this is total candy for the eyes.

This year all eyes were on Katy Perry. Now, I am not a fan of Katy’s style in general, can never understand how a woman so pretty can get it so wrong on so many occasions. But in a dramatic red gown from Marchesa, she looked like a Spanish dream. Yes it was a little flamenco, but the fabric and cut were stunning on Katy, and with flawless hair and make-up I was totally swept away by the sheer beauty of the whole look.

In other fashion news, there seemed to be a mass tribute for Angelina’s leg, with Jourdan Dunn, Karlie Kloss and Heidi Klum all showing off one perfect pin. For me, this was one of Heidi’s best looks in ages, the lemon shade was beautiful, and as for those jewels (Harry Winston I believe), who couldn’t be blown away with the whole ensemble.

Other favourites included Rosie Huntington Whiteley, who is fast becoming one of the best dressed ladies on the carpet. Yes, she has hit the genetic jackpot, but her choices are stylish and elegant and allow her to stand out on any red carpet. I’m also loving Kirsten Dunst, who seems to be morphing more and more into an iconic 40s film star. I love her blonde waves, exquisite suit, and those glorious shoes.

Who’s style do you admire from the AmFar Gala? Do you have a favourite frock – is it someone I’ve missed out?

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.
