Cannes 2012: Reese Witherspoon In Atelier Versace

Who: Reese Witherspoon

Where: At the premiere of ‘Mud’ at the Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A custom-made cobalt blue silk chiffon Atelier Versace gown, adorned with Swarovski crystals, featured a empire-waist silhouette, cut-out detailing to the back, double straps, and a central split; teamed with Versace shoes and Chopard jewellery

Verdict: Seriously where have I been, first I didn’t know that Drew Barrymore was getting married, and until seeing this picture I had no clue that Reese Witherspoon was pregnant, I need to read more showbiz blogs!!!

Back to the Reese’s amazing look, this is a very glamorous maternity gown that showcases her baby bump to perfection, the cut of this sparkly Versace gown really is making her glow. I love the colour, the sparkles, the gorgeous updo, and I am loving that she finished off her look with some exquisite Chopard bling!!!

I think this look may be one of my favourites from the Cannes Film Festival this year, mainly because it wasn’t something I was expecting to see Reese wear, I love that Cannes brings out the sparkle in everyone.

Cannes 2012: Kylie Minogue Is Demure In Roberto Cavalli

Who: Kylie Minogue

Where: At the Closing Ceremony for the 65th Edition of the International Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A baby blue chiffon Roberto Cavalli gown with a plunging neckline and diamante embroidery, teamed with a diamond necklace

Verdict: Roberto Cavalli has been a busy designer during Cannes, he has dressed everyone from models Karolina Kurkova, Natasha Poly, and Heidi Klum to singer Cassie, and actresses Roxane Mesquida and Naomi Watts, and this is Kylie’s second look designed by him.

It is hard to compete with the leggy models who have all sparkled this Cannes Film Festival, but tiny Kylie is holding her own in this demure and romantic Roberto Cavalli gown. I love the colour, the flowing chiffon skirt, and I adore the addition of the necklace, Cannes deserves glitz.

I do wish though that she had worn her hair up, but this is me being extra picky, as she looks stunning.

Cannes 2012: Diane Kruger In Dior Couture

Who: Diane Kruger

Where: At the Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony and ‘Therese Desqueyroux’ premiere

Wearing: A black and white checkered silk Christian Dior Haute Couture gown with lace embroidered detailing, from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with diamond earrings

Verdict: For the past 12 days I have been in awe at Diane Kruger’s style choices, all stunning, all different, and this Dior is perfection and is a great way to finish her duties as a Cannes Film Festival juror.

I am not going to say this is my favourite of all her looks, it is close, I love the drama of the gown, it works perfectly at Cannes. What I absolutely adore as with all her looks is her flawless make-up and hair, it may only be a simply ponytail but the simply approach with a gown like this is the way to go, she looks gorgeous.

It is going to be hard to choose my favourite of her looks.

Cannes 2012: Kylie Minogue Dazzles Promoting Holy Motors

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?
