Clothed At Cannes

One of my favorite fashion- I mean movie- events is taking place in France.  That’s right it is the Cannes Film Festival.  And while much attention has been given to the films, some is due the fashion as well!  Fortunately, you can always count on me for a recap of these things.  This time I’ve pulled some of my favorite looks from a variety of the surrounding events (including everything from photo calls to premieres to the amfAR Gala).  Hopefully you enjoy these looks as much as I do!

These looks show that body conscious dresses are not limited to eveningwear.  I love how each woman has put her own spin on the trend- the oversized blouse, the sex appeal and the fresh white.  There is a sense of power in each of these looks.

Alright…. These three looks are a bit more out of the box.  Each representing one of springs biggest fashion trends (from left to right: sheer, color-blocking and florals).  However they do share one commonality- they are all belted!

Clearly sequins and shimmer were major players at the events.  These looks have clear disco era references and are unarguably sexy.  But that sex appeal doesn’t negate their sophistication.

What are your favorite looks from Cannes?

My favs?  Tilda Swinton in Roger Vivier, Kirsten Dunst in Chanel Couture and Gwen Stefani in Stella McCartney (but Gwen has been my favorite for basically ever!).


  1. Tilda looks stunning. She looks surprisingly “high maintenance” in that outfit! It’s interesting that all of these outfits feature such sleek profiles and outlines. A nod perhaps to the always classy French?

  2. Even though it is a bit out of the box, I love Gwen Stefani’s outfit. I also like Penelope Cruz and Zoe Saldana outfits.

  3. Gwen looks awesome in that Stella McCartney Jumpsuit!

  4. Girl, you have an amazing sense of style! My favorites from your list – Penelope & Karolina’s outfits.

  5. OMG I love Zoe Saldana’s dress, and the first 3 body conscious outfits are great!

  6. I like Tilda Swinton’s daytime outfit the best and Karolina K’s dress is my fav for the evening. So nice to see the roundup, I’d been too busy and am glad I had a chance to catch up here!
