from the Cannes Film Festival 2011
While the rest of went on with our normal lives, another stylish week at Cannes continued. Stars pulled out all the stops at the various events held in the French Rivera this week.
These are some of the highlights.
The classic black gown was given a twist with these four variations. Zoe Saldana was whimsical in a floral-print organza gown by Vionnet. I like the dress, just not the elasticated striped belt - it feels too casual. Gwen Stefani wowed in a shimmery fishtail gown with halter neck from her own fashion line, L.A.M.B. A gold belt accentuated her waist. Li Bing Bing wore a beautifully beaded gown by Zuhair Murad, with large chiffon bow and sash. Clemence Poesy's pleated black Chanel dress is an elegant pick, although I find the heels too high for the length of the dress.
Punchy colours brought vigour to the red carpet. Crowd pleaser Fan Bing Bing wore a pistachio green gown by Oscar de la Renta. The gown was volumized by gathered folds. I'm not fond of her Heidi-hairstyle. The stunning Alessandra Ambrosio wears an aqua Roberto Cavalli dress with embellished bodice. Actress Jessica Chastain was vibrant in a strapless sunflower yellow dress by Zac Posen. Model Bar Rafaeli donned a deep blue Roberto Cavalli gown, which fit impeccably. Her pulled back ponytail added to the sleek look. Asian actress Zhang Zilin was breathtaking in Elie Saab. The rose red chiffon dress features a lace-trimmed asymmetrical neckline and soft draping. For me, this look is perfection.
Muted tones were trendy at last night's Amfar Gala. Kirsten Dunst wore a hazy pink sheer gown with diamond shaped appliqués by Chanel. Michelle Rodriguez shows off the embellished back of her Jean Fares Couture dress. Such a pretty pale pink colour and the pockets add an interesting touch. Uma Thurman strikes a pose in a gracious grey Chanel gown with a row of roses on the neckline. Her dress also features pockets. Rosario Dawson shines in Roberto Cavalli. Her strapless dress has a silver sequined bodice and cream pleated skirt.
