I love this time of year, the award ceremonies, red carpet events and of course Cannes.
Now in its 66th year celebrities have flocked to the Grand Théâtre Lumière of the Palais des Festivals and with it showcasing a stunning array of gowns and outfits.
With the cast of The Great Gatsby of course taking centre stage at the film festival promoting their new flick starlets Carey Mulligan and Leonardo DiCaprio were seen at all the best bashes including the FLAUNT Magazine aboard the stunning John Walker & Sons Voyager Yacht (in association with Raffles Chelsea) where the lady herself was spotted in this gorgeous two-piece monochrome tuxedo suit.
Aside from Carey model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne was also snapped in a stunning plunging beaded black Burberry gown complete with dramatic make up and dripping in jewels at The great Gatsby after party. However, Cara was reported to have snubbed Leo DiCaprio’s advances and instead partied the night away with celebrity pals.
Before this unravelled Carey Mulligan also stepped out in a gorgeous princess-like evening gown from Dior. She was joined by actress Nicole Kidman stole the show on the red carpet at the film’s premiere adorning a beautiful mid-length dress (also by Dior). The embellished number wowed onlookers with its intricate detailing and colourful threads. I also love the way Nicole, 45(!), added neon pop coloured heels and an super-cool pompadour hairstyle – Tres Chic. Alongside Nicole was Naomi Harris in a simple yet statement glittering silver Calvin Klein column dress and my personal fav Isla Fisher who rocked a fabulous signature red Oscar de la Renta gown with sweetheart neckline and statement Bulgari necklace.
Singer Lana Del Rey also opted for 1920s glamour with her monochrome vintage scalloped edge gown whilst Emma Watson also kept in favour of SS13s hottest hues, black and white, by wearing a simple yet chic Chanel silk dress to The Bling Ring premiere.
Lastly Cheryl Cole also set tongues wagging in a gorgeous barely there gown in crimson red at the Jimmy P. Psychotherapy of Plains Indian premiere where she let her body do the talking, covering up just about enough of her modesty.
The festival ends on May 26, so looks like there is still plenty of time for someone to steal the ‘best dressed’ crown…
