Cannes 2012: Kylie Minogue Dazzles Promoting Holy Motors

KylieCannes Cannes 2012: Kylie Minogue Dazzles Promoting Holy Motors %tag

There is something quite endearing about pop princess Kylie, I like that she always makes an effort when it comes to red carpet appearances, and I love that she really does sexy in such an elegant way, which is hard to do. Kylie has been spotted in Cannes this past week promoting her new movie, Holy Motors, yes Kylie is giving acting another go after that awful Street Fighters movie she did year’s ago, and has been working her fashion connections.

Kylie’s first outing was for the ‘Killing Them Softly’ afterparty and she wore a stunning black sequinned Roberto Cavalli gown. Such a gorgeous silhouette and I absolutely love the shimmer of the large sequins, and the chiffon train is the perfect finish.

Then for the premire of her new movie Holy Motors, Kylie turned to her good pals Dolce & Gabbana and literally dazzled in this long-sleeved gold beauty.This is her best hair of the three looks as well for me, I love her wavy locks and her make-up is flawless, considering she is 43 – she really does look amazing.

My favourite of her three looks has to be the vibrant red organza Emilio Pucci gown that she wore to the 19th annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala. This gown from the autumn/winter 2012 collection looks like it was made specially for her, there is an elegance about the silhouette with its cleverly positioned sheer panels, but the sexy factor is there in the colour and the plunging neckline. But what makes this look my favourite is that gorgeous triple-layered diamond necklace – now that is statement jewellery!!!

Which of Kylie’s three looks gets your vote?

NinaElieSaab Cannes 2012: Nina Dobrev Sparkles In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Nina Dobrev

Where: At the amfAR’s Cinema Against Aids Gala held during the Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: An electric blue off-the-shoulder sequinned embellished Elie Saab gown, with a side split from the spring/summer 2012 collection, finished off with Jimmy Choo heels and Bulgari jewellery

Verdict: I am loving Nina Dobrev’s red carpet style lately, she really worked it at the Met Gala, and this Elie Saab gown is another exquisite choice. I love the colour, it is vibrant and bold and the perfect way to standout at Cannes, I also love the silver accessories. This whole look has a sexiness about it, while still being elegant and youthful. I love everything about this look.

Already this Cannes Film Festival Fan Bing Bing has impressed me with her outfits. I loved the beauty of her traditional robe inspired dress for the opening ceremony, and I adored the ombre Atelier Versace gown worn to The Artist premiere. I really didn’t think it could get much better than that, but Fan Bing Bing really has pulled out the best show-stopping of the festival for me.

Above Fan is wearing a gorgeous lilac Elie Saab haute couture gown from the spring 2011 collection to  The Marche Du Film China Night press conference. This dress reminds me of the one that Mila Kunis wore to the Oscars, but she really does pull it off with more elegance and grace.

This Oscar de la Renta gown, that Fan wore to The Tree of Life premiere is something that I wouldn’t have expected her to wear. Don’t get me wrong I love this lime green gown from the spring/summer 2011 collection, its elegant and sophisticated with its square neckline and full gathered skirt, but it just not my favourite of the looks that I have seen her in.

Trust the amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala to bring out my favourite look from Fan Bing Bing. This vibrant strapless pink silk gazar vustier Louis Vuitton gown embroidered with silk bows it so striking. Don’t you think she looks very doll like in this dress? I love it so much.

Which look is your favourite?

image005 amfAR Gala: Michelle Yeoh Gorgeous in Elie Saab %tag

Who: Actress Michelle Yeoh

Where: at the amfAR New York Gala that launched New York Fashion Week

Wearing: A full embellished, black one-shoulder Elie Saab gown, from the autumn/winter 2010 ready-to-wear collection. Teamed with a black clutch and fur shawl.

Verdict: No-one can do full embellishments like Elie Saab, this gown is gorgeous and looks stunning on Michelle Yeoh. I like that she kept all her accessories black as this gown didn’t need any more glam. Completely gorgeous – love the look from head-to-toe!
