Top Looks at the Cannes Film Festival

Cannes Film Festival is a multi-day event in France which previews and celebrates new films from around the world. Because of its duration, the festival has more than the usual amount of red carpet entrances – meaning more fabulous outfits from our favourite celebrities.

Wrapping up at the end of May, Cannes Film Festival celebrated its 70th year. As always, there were some outfits which stood out among the crowd. I’ve put together my eight top looks of the festival. What was your favourite?

 

Monica Belluccimonica

Monica has long been one of my favourite celebrities. The Italian actress and model is the picture of elegance wherever she goes, and Cannes was no exception. This year Monica was the festival’s Mistress of Ceremonies. Over the event’s twelve days she wore an array of gorgeous garments, but my personal pick is this flared black Stella McCartney jumpsuit. Stylish, simple and clean, the jumpsuit highlight her lovely curves and is complemented perfectly with a diamond brooch.

 

Sara Sampaio

Portuguese model Sara Sampaio was a vision in red. The plunging neckline and full skirt of her Zuhair Murad Couture gown create a feminine and striking effect. The sequined detail on the gown just add to its impressiveness, and Sara’s diamond jewellery finishes the outfit beautifully. I love Sara’s simple, pulled back hair and smokey eyes – you can’t go wrong with smokey eyes, ladies!

 

Olga KurylenkoOlga

Fashion designer Elie Saab never puts a foot wrong, as is evident with French actress and model Olga Kurylenko’s stunning dress. The cut is very flattering, accentuating her slim waist and flowing gently over the hips and legs. I’m loving the embellishments on this gown, which are eye-catching while still remaining elegant. Olga wears her short hair down and carries a slim watch on her wrist – very classy.

 

Deepika Padukone
Deepkish

One of the more stand-out gowns of this year’s festival is Deepika’s dress by Brandon Maxwell. The deep green-blue colour is hard to wear, but Indian actress Deepika pulls it off perfectly. The off-the-shoulder cut and train is dramatic but elegant, and the leg slit gives this look some edginess. Her eye makeup is risky, but again executed well. And who doesn’t love a good pair of stilettos?

  

Bella Hadidbella hadid

Bella Hadid can simply do no wrong. The American model stole the show at the 2017 Cannes, and this stunning outfit was my favourite look of the whole festival. The gown, by Alexandre Gauthier, is perfectly fitted and just the right blend of sexy and classy. Soft pink is very in right now, and Bella matches her fashionable dress with striking Bulgari jewellery and delicate Olgana Paris heels. A beautiful, polished, head-turning look.

 

Jessica Chastainjessica

Keeping things classic, actress Jessica Chastain wears a glamorous and sophisticated Black Prada gown. With a slight train and a low back, this gown is understated elegance at its best. Pairing the gown with a string of small pearl and a tight up-do, Jessica spells class. The simple makeup is an effective addition.

 

Adriana LimaAdriana

Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana looked fabulous in this strapless sequined gown. The cut is classic and elegant, showing off her slim figure. The statement Chopard necklace is gives Adriana’s outfit a hint of flare, as do the red lips. When in doubt, wear red lips.

 

Juliette Binoche

Lovely French actress Juliette Binoche was glamorous in a long black Armani Prive dress. The fitted shaped of the dress highlights her hourglass figure, and the sparkles give it an extra bit of edge. I love the up-do and soft wave of the side fringe – very classic.

Top Looks at the MTV Awards

Earlier this week the MTV Movie and Television Awards were held at the fabulous Shrine Auditorium in the City of Angels – Los Angeles. Slightly less formal than other red carpet events, the MTV Awards give celebrities space to embrace colour and texture in their attire. Some of the outfits were pretty out-there this year, but there were a ton of stunning ones, too. Here are my Top 5 Looks from the MTV Awards – what was your favourite?

Allison Williams

Allison Williams

Actress Allison Williams turned heads in this gorgeous sequined Galia Lahav Haute Couture dress. The cut highlights her rectangle body shape and, combined with the bright colours of the sequins, has an eighties vibe to it. She completed the look with Giuseppe Zanotti stilettos. While the Get Out star didn’t win Best Villain, her co-star Daniel Kaluuya managed to take out the Next Generation award, and the satirical thriller received the most amount of nominations all up. How’s that for inspirational?

Kat Graham
Kat Graham

Star of The Vampire Diaries, Kat Graham was all class in this wide-legged, silky jumpsuit by Off-White. The off-the-shoulder cut breaks the outfit up nicely and her sleek, straight hair looks gorgeous. Kat’s jewellery might look understated, but don’t be fooled – those are Tiffany & Co rings, darlings! What more could a girl want?

Hailee Steinfield
Hailee Steinfeld

Not many people could pull this number off! Somehow, Hailee Steinfield makes it work. The actress and singer looked striking in this mauve Fausto Puglisi dress. The side cut-outs show off her slim waist and the silver embellishments create an eye-catching effect. With silver Christian Louboutin shoes and Neil Lane jewels the twenty-year-old was a vision. Both her and Kat show that simple, straight hair can make any outfit work.

Natalia Dyer
Natalia Dyer

Star of supernatural show Stranger Things, Natalia Dyer was my personal favourite look of the night. I’ve always maintained that when in doubt, wear black – and this is the perfect example of why! With a fitted black Miu Miu dress, fabulous spotted stockings and jewellery by Ileana Makri and Eva Fehren, she was the picture of glamour and sophistication. The strappy heels and red lips complete an elegant, stylish appearance. And even better, Stranger Things took out the award for Show of the Year! What’s your Netflix binge?

Jess Conte
Jess Conte

She’s one of the biggest social media influencers of her generation, and she certainly looked flawless on the red carpet. Vlogger and singer Jess Conte wore a strapless midi-length dress by House of CB. I love the colour and the unique cut of this piece. Soft pinks and pastels are very in right now, as is the much-loved midi-length style. The shape of this dress really makes it stand out – it’s edgy without bordering on crass. The thin-strapped heel is a popular choice at the moment, creating a simple and refined look. Jess tops everything off which a beautiful side plait, plain clutch and simple makeup.

A personal styling session with me will get you sorted! Here are a few of my favourite celebrity beauty looks right now.

 

Emma Watson

03/02/2017 - Emma Watson - "Beauty And The Beast" Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals - El Capitan Theatre - Hollywood, CA, USA - Keywords: Orientation: Portrait Face Count: 1 - False - Photo Credit: David Gabber / PRPhotos.com - Contact (1-866-551-7827) - Portrait Face Count: 1

Emma looked amazing at the world premiere of Beauty and the Beast last month. The British beauty showed off her slim figure in an elegant black Oscar de la Renta jumpsuit, and wore her hair in a swept-back, messy bun. The focus was on the eyes for Emma, and she looked every part the Disney princess with the careful ‘cat eye’ flick of mascara on the eyelid. This technique is a classy and effective way to draw attention to your eyes without looking like you’re wearing a lot of makeup. With a little attention to the brows and a lightly tinted lipstick, Emma was picture perfect.

Selma Hayek

Selma looked as gorgeous as ever at the How to be a Latin Lover press conference earlier this month. The Mexican-American stunner kept things simple, letting her dark locks flow naturally over her shoulders. Keeping the makeup to a minimum, she has smoothed her skin over with a BB cream or light foundation and added a natural coloured lipstick. This basic makeup look works really well for Selma, showing off her great smile and skin  tone. And doesn’t that dress look amazing on her hourglass figure?!

 

Brie Larson

Brie has rapidly worked her way into the realm of Hollywood stars, and is known for her natural ‘don’t overdo it’ appearance. At the Kong: Skull Island movie premiere she looked radiant in a striking tiered gown with sequin embellishments that accentuated her small waist and great curves. I love love love Brie’s hair in this image – sleek, straight and shiny, she is the picture of elegance. Like Emma Watson, she focuses on the the eyes, with a slight smoky effect going on and some eyeliner on the eyelid. The small black earrings complete the look beautifully.

 

Jennifer Anniston

Jen always looks great, and she was on form at the premier for the third season of The Leftovers  a week ago. Keeping her beachy blonde-brown locks out with a natural wave and with that ever-present golden tan, she looked fit and healthy. A dash of lipgloss, some black mascara and a touch of bronzer on the cheeks give her face just the right amount of colour. Gorgeous, as always.

 

Sienna Miller

Like Jen, Sienna has always maintained a more natural beauty look. At the LA premiere of The Lost City of Z on April 6th, she looked radiant. With a soft curl in her healthy blonde hair, and a little eyeshadow and mascara she looked dignified and fun. You can see the cute freckles on her nose, meaning she hasn’t used a thick foundation. Less is more for Sienna!

The 2016 Emmy Awards: Best Dressed

The Emmy Awards are one of the biggest media events of the year, bringing America’s finest celebrities together in an evening of glitz and glamour. Earlier this week our favourite actors, musicians and models walked the red carpet in their best attire. As always, there were some outfits that stood out from the crowd.

Tori Kelly
This pop singer looked stunning in a black Paula Ka gown with jewellery by Norman Silverman Diamonds. You can’t beat a simple, black gown when it comes to a clean, classy look and Tori pulls it off perfectly. Loving the soft curls in her hair, too!

Emilia Clarke
The gorgeous Me Before You and Game of Thrones star was radiant in this nude dress by Atelier Versace. The gown highlights her hourglass figure beautifully, with the bunching detail at the front giving it just the right amount of flair. If you have the right face shape, a tightly pulled-back bun like the one Emelia is rocking looks striking.

America Ferrara
The beautiful actress looked stunning in a long sparkly Jenny Packham dress, showing off her great curves with a deep V neck and slim fit.

Priyanka Chopra
My favourite look of then night would have to be this actress, singer and former Miss World’s.
Priyanka wore a stunning Jason Wu gown which was eye catching and elegant. You can’t go wrong with red, ladies.

priyanka-chopra

Porsha Williams
This Real Housewives of Atlanta star looked fabulous in a unique pantsuit which highlights her gorgeous curvy figure. Love the sleek, simple hair as well.

Heidi Klum
Model and designer Heidi was as lovely as ever in this edgy piece by Michael Kors. The white shows off her tan skin and the cut outs give her look a confident, sexy flair. Love it!
