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?

Cannes 2012: Nina Dobrev Sparkles In Elie Saab

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.

Cannes 2012: Diane Kruger In Jason Wu

DianeHaiti Cannes 2012: Diane Kruger In Jason Wu %tag
Who: Diane Kruger

Where: At Sean Penn’s Haiti Benefit Gala Dinner at the Electrolux Agora Pavilion during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A sleeveless navy asymmetrical chiffon Jason Wu gown with an embroidered Chantilly lace underlay slip and an embellished collar, from the Resort 2013 collection, which Jason Wu hasn’t even presented; teamed with black sandals, diamond earrings, and a black Judith Leiber clutch

Verdict: I knew that Diane would pull out all the stops and call all her connections to get the hottest gowns, but I’m impressed with her bagging a Resort gown before it has even been presented, but I am so glad that she did as this is one gorgeous gown that deserved the glitz and glam of Cannes.

This dress has the right mixture of sexiness, glamour, originality and elegance about it for me, I love the colour, the way the chiffon and lace compliment each other, but most of all I love her flawless finish – her makeup and hair is divine.

I have loved ever look from Diane in Cannes, my girl crush on her is seriously getting worse each time I see her, and I am thinking I prefer this look to her angelic minty number a few days ago.

Cannes 2012: Jada Pinkett Smith In Emilio Pucci

Who: Actress Jada Pinkett Smith

Where: At Sean Penn’s Haiti Benefit Gala Dinner at the Electrolux Agora Pavilion during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A custom-made gold strapless Emilio Pucci gown with beaded embellishments and lace inserts

Verdict: Jada really has had a busy Cannes and once again this is another stunning gown. There is something special about this metallic patchwork gown that I really like, I’m not sure it beats her orange Atelier Versace gown but comes pretty close.

I don’t know why but Jada hasn’t really been on my radar before Cannes and I’m thinking that she must have a new stylist as she has been on fire. I wonder if this is her done for this year’s event or if she has another gorgeous gown in her suitcase?

Cannes 2012: Diane Kruger Looking Girlie In Calvin Klein

DianeCalvinKlein Cannes 2012: Diane Kruger Looking Girlie In Calvin Klein %tag
Who: Actress & 2012 Cannes Film Festival Juror Diane Kruger

Where: At Calvin Klein’s women in film event in Cannes

Wearing: A coral textured midi Calvin Klein Collection dress with a plunging neckline, that was modified from the autumn/winter 2012 collection it was presented in black; finishing her look were white Givenchy strappy heels and a metallic box clutch

Verdict: The first thing I noticed and I am sure everyone else did as well has to be her boobs they look incredible in this dress without making her look tacky, which is hard to do when they are completely on show like this. I love the colour, I love the midi length on her, the silhouette is sweet, and her heels are insane and work perfectly with the dress, but it doesn’t feel enough for Cannes.

Don’t get me wrong she does look stunning, and I am loving her slick ponytail, but this dress is just nice, and nice just isn’t enough for Cannes. Am I being extra picky? I feel that if this was any other party, photocall, or premiere I probably would have loved it but something is holding me back – what do you think is this look a winner?

Cannes 2011: Salma Hayek In Gucci

cannessalma Cannes 2011: Salma Hayek In Gucci %tag

Who: Salma Hayek

Where: At the Puss in Boots photocall at Carlton Beach during the 64th Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A red strapless leather Gucci dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, teamed with a floral shrug, which was made from hand cut, hand painted silk petals, and finished off with a purple skinny belt

Verdict: I am glad that it is the start of Cannes as it is one of my favourite red carpet events, but after seeing this outfit from Salma I am hoping that the fashion improves. It isn’t a surprise that she went for Gucci, it does seem to be her go-to label as she wore it to last year’s festival as well, but this dramatic dress doesn’t really do it for me.

I kind of like the shrug, quite similar to one that Jennifer Lopez wore to the Met Gala, but I just not sure it works. Am I being a little harsh?

Thank god that Penelope Cruz and Angelina Jolie are expected to raise the fashion stakes!!
