Cannes 2016 – Fave looks so far

Oh the glamour! The Cannes film festival has to be the most glorious confection of fashion that you will see anywhere. As someone who is a total glutton for fashion that is full of elegance and beauty, Cannes always ticks all the boxes. Quite simply put, Cannes if the film festival where movie stars are MOVIE STARS, in the retro, vintage, old Hollywood sense of the word. Add in stunning models and singers, and more yachts than you can shake a stick at, and the 69th annual Cannes film Festival has glitz and sparkle in abundance.

This year Blake Lively is a strong contender for Queen of Cannes, wearing a series of looks that are both versatile and striking. She has strong competition from the ever beautiful Naomi Watts and Anna Kendrick, who never seem to get it wrong. Other Cannes ever presents include Eva Longoria and Cheryl Cole, who are there representing L’Oreal, and Kirsten Dunst, another lady with a strong fashion tradition at Cannes, and a previous best actress winner.

My favourite looks so far include the retro look worn by Anna Kendrick for the daytime Trolls photocall, the unusual gown covered in a spoon (yes that does say spoon – as in cutlery) print worn by the flawless Kirsten Dunst, and Blake Lively in a very floaty Vivienne Westwood gown. I also love the final gown in this parade, the sequined glamorous number worn by Julianne Moore, very grown up and elegant.

What is your favourite gown so far?

London Fashion Week – The best of the Front Row

London Fashion Week is currently in full swing, and, once again, I’m a bit obsessed with what the ladies are wearing in the front row, as much as I love looking at the collections on the catwalk.

All the usual suspects are there, from Olivia Palermo, Alexa Chung, Millie Mackintosh and Cheryl…not actually sure what she’s called at the moment…were all looking suitably glamorous and stylish on the front rows, in a wide range of looks. Fashion Week brings real diversity in the styles you see on the front row, ranging from looks that are almost red carpet ready – think Millie Mackintosh, to casual jeans like those sported by Olivia and Alexa, who is surely the queen of dressing down in a way that is effortless, gorgeous and makes every other woman in the room look totally over-dressed.

So, who’s style have I been coverting this London Fashion week? My style crush Harley Viera Newton once again totally kills it, with a whole series of elegant, ladylike looks. I love the prim print she chose for the Burberry show which is covered up and looks just stunning. Another look I love is Suki Waterhouse chanelling the 1940s in pale pink floral. I also think Suki has the look of a 60s dolly bird so this is a beautiful departure for her and I adore it.

As someone who would literally live in dresses 24/7, there have been some rich pickings on display so far. I love the unusual printed dress worn by Bond Actress Naomi Harris, which, with its long sleeves, is just a great transitional piece. Another wow was Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts who chose a green shift style that contrasted beautifully with her hair and pale skin.

I have featured some of my favourite looks so far below. Whose style has caught your eye so far?

Celebrity Get the look featuring a host of ITV stars

One of my favourite types of posts to research and write concerned with Celebrity Get the Look. These posts are always interesting to research, and I particularly love it when I find that a particular outfit contains elements that come from the High Street or from online companies. This particular post has lots of finds from both of those places, and also has one other thing in common – all the ladies featured are presenters or actresses who have worked, or are currently working, on ITV.

So we have Corrie ladies Georgia May Foote, Sair Khan and Lucy Fallon (Katy, Alya and Bethany) who are showing both red carpet and casual style, and breakfast stars Susannah Reid and Charlotte Hawkins, both proving to be frock queens in dresses from LK Bennett (new season) and Phase Eight (a total sale steal that is well worth a look.) This Morning’s Alison Hammond looks beautiful in Scarlett & Jo, now available at Yours Clothing, while sometime ‘Loose Woman’ and Mrs Rod Stewart, the gorgeous Penny Lancaster, is another fan of Gorgeous Couture.

Finally, we have X Factor Queen Cheryl who wears one of my absolute favourite designers, Markus Lupfer, looking amazing in his Lara Lip jumper. I think this is such a fabulous design, glamorous due to the sequins, but just so much fun too.

Who’s look do you rate?
