Cannes 2015: Opening Ceremony – Naomi Watts and Julianne Moore

Cannes 2015: Opening Ceremony – Naomi Watts and Julianne Moore

There is something special about Cannes, maybe even more so than the Oscars, and that’s because everyone gracing the red carpet really does go big, always glamorous, and most importantly very over-the-top. The film festival really does deliver great red carpet magic for nearly 2-weeks, it is pure bliss for someone like me who is obsessed by gorgeous gowns, and the opening day really did set a high standard. 

As always Cannes attracts all the top actresses, some of my favourite Diane Kruger moments have been in this French Riviera town, I still get goosebumps when I look at this Jason Wu Barbie pink dress from 2010, and do you remember this stunning Dior Couture gown and gorgeous Giambattista Valli Couture gown both from 2012, so I’m more than a little excited to see her later in the festival to support her film ‘Maryland’.

As well as Diane Kruger, the festival red carpet will also host Charlize Theron, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Emma Stone, Salma Hayek, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Emily Blunt, and Marion Cotillard, to name a few, all know how to rock a red carpet and I can’t wait to see what they wear. 

Last night was the Opening Ceremony of the 68th International Cannes Film Festival and the premiere of ‘La Tete Haute’, and it was one hell of a red carpet with Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o and Fan Bingbing really shining out. Click through to see their stunning looks and who they were wearing.

Oscars 2015: Julianne Moore In Chanel Couture

Who: Julianne Moore

Where: At the 87th Annual Academy Awards held at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, California

Wearing: A custom white Chanel haute couture gown, featuring  white hand painted resin sequins and flowers made of ivory, beige and black organza, tulle and sequins, teamed with Chopard jewellery

Verdict: OK, so this gown didn’t blow me away like I hoped, Julianne Moore has been so amazing this season with her high fashion sexy numbers that this one for me falls a little short. 

For the craftsmanship alone, it took 987 hours of work and 27 people to complete as it features more than 80,000 hand painted sequins, I felt like I had to include it, as even though it might not be my favourite look she has worn I can still appreciate that it is exquisite.

What I did love was her hair and make-up, the sleek chignon suited the gown and occasion, and I adore that she went for a vibrant lippy. 

No matter what I still think this look will be in everyone’s best dressed list. 

Golden Globes 2015: Julianne Moore In Givenchy

Who: Julianne Moore

Where: At the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: A custom-made Givenchy Couture metallic sequinned gown with feather detailing on the skirt, teamed with Chopard earrings

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow – what a frock! Julianne Moore always brings it for award season but I think this has to be one her boldest looks to-date and she pulled it off with ease.

If this gown had just been fully beaded, even with the ombre bottom to the skirt it would have been stunning, but by adding in the feathers it sparks a whole other level of elegance and drama that I love at award shows.

There were a lot of safe options on the red carpet and I am so pleased that she decided to go for it – when I first saw her on TV I actually gasped, this is one exquisite gown.

As well as loving the gown, I also love that she finished off her elegant look with dramatic eye make-up that really suited the mood of the dress, it was like her huge feather-like lashes matched the skirt.

It is always hard for me to choose a favourite, but I think this is definitely a contender. Are you a fan of this dramatic gown?

 

Golden Globes 2015: Lupita Nyong’o In Giambattista Valli

Who: Lupita Nyong’o

Where: At the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California

Wearing: A purple and white Giambattista Valli couture gown from the autumn/winter 2014 collection, teamed with Chopard jewellery

Verdict: Lupita Nyong’o was one of the best red carpet stars last award season and I love that she has kicked off 2015 in the same spirit. Unlike most stars who opted for red, yellow, white or silver, it seems that Lupita didn’t get that memo and went for something more dramatic with this floral-like couture gown.

Not only was the colour a statement, I love that shade of purple against her skin tone, but I love the flower-like qualities of the dress, it is like the bodice is embellished with petals, as well as the movement of the chiffon skirt.

This gown is like a work of art and I think Lupita showed it off beautifully with matching lavender make-up and a short afro hair-do.
