I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love the Cannes Film Festival. Whether it be the drama (Grace of Monaco Fiasco) or the buzzing reviews (Carol), Cannes can always count me in as a follower of the festival. With that being said, I love the dresses more than I love anything else. Here’s my best looks:
1. Cate Blanchett in Giles Deacon.
Oh, Queen Cate – you shall slay for another day. After that nasty business with the bisexuality, Cate recovered well in this printed strapless Giles Deacon dress. It’s eccentric (like her) and just perfect for colourful Cannes. 9/10
2. Salma Hayek in Gucci.
Few women can pull of a dress like this without coming across as a flat-chested frau or a slutty starlet, but Miss Hayek manages to look both classy and sexy in this number by Gucci. I like the clutch too. 8/10
3. Katrina Kaif in Oscar De La Renta.
I have no idea who Katrina Kaif is, but I do know that I love her dress here. It pops against the crimson carpet and instantly catches my eye. It’s a little floral-gothic, but it works! 7/10
4. Naomi Watts in Elie Saab.
Is this what happens when you mix classy Australian with Vegas showgirl? If so, I like it! It’s a feathery drag queen dress that Divine wouldn’t be caught dead in, but Miss Watts somehow manages to impress with understated jewellery and accessories. 7/10
5. Emily Blunt in Stella McCartney.
Emily Blunt seems to be wearing the dress version of a disco-ball and I love it. It’s fun and it’s eye-catching, and the jewellery compliments her perfectly.
