Cannes 2014: Lara Stone Channels Barbie In Calvin Klein Collection


Who: Model Lara Stone

Where: At “The Search” premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival in France

Wearing: A custom fuchsia cross-strap silk crepe Calvin Klein Collection gown, teamed with a diamond bracelet and her signature tousled waves

Verdict: Now that is how channel Barbie!!! I am a huge fan of hot pink on the red carpet, not just because I am a huge Barbie fan, OK a lot because of that, but I think a lot of it is to do with the clash of colours. When I see hot pink at Cannes it used to make me think of Diane Kruger in that incredible Jason Wu gown, but I think that honour will definitely have to be Lara Stone’s after seeing her in this gorgeous Calvin Klein Collection gown.

I am a huge fan of designer Francisco Costa’s Calvin Klein Collection gowns, he really knows how to make minimal a statement with the use of colour and sporty detailing, I just love the cross-strap at the neckline as well as the colour of this dress. You can really tell that this gown was made for the L’Oreal ambassador as it hugs her body beautifully.

It is for looks like this that I am always so pleased that Cannes always attracts all the top models to the red carpet.

It isn’t just her outfit that is breathtaking the model’s hair and make-up has never looked so good before, her skin looks absolutely flawless – I really have to try out L’Oreal Paris’ Nude Magique Blur Cream. For a full look at the products L’Oreal Paris used to create Lara’s look see below.

What do you think of Lara’s ode to Barbie?

Cannes 2012: Cheryl Cole Looks Gorgeous In Stéphane Rolland and L’Oreal Paris Make-up

Who: Cheryl Cole

Where: At the Amour Premiere at the Palais des Festivals during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A cap-sleeve white jersey fitted Stéphane Rolland Couture gown adorned with red embellishments and a red ostrich feathered train, from the spring/summer 2012 collection; teamed with  David Morris diamond  chandelier earrings, a diamond bracelet and a red clutch

Verdict: Once again Cheryl Cole was stunning at Cannes, and once again she turned to Parisian couture designer Stéphane Rolland; last year it was a plunging white gown and this weekend she shined in a train to rival fellow L’Oreal Paris ambassador Eva Longoria in Marchesa. The red carpet event may have been soaked but Cheryl didn’t let that get in the way of showing off this gorgeous gown. I love everything about it, from the exquisite scarlet red feathered train to the scoop back and cap sleeves, and the divine embellishments just above the hemline, I just wish the carpet had been a different colour to really show-off the train.

This is one truly stunning gown, I think this will be high up on my list of best dressed for Cannes 2012. With a look like this I am excited for her to attend the premiere of ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’, which she has a guest role in.

In Cannes as part of her L’Oreal Paris ambassador duties it wouldn’t be right to not mention her flawless appearance, and she really does look stunning with her ultra-smoky eyes. If you want to get Cheryl’s look here are all the products she used – as well as a stunning shade of red nail varnish, which I am still tracking down!!!

For her fab eyes: Apply the eyeshadow Color Infallible 12 Endless Chocolate finger on the whole eyelid; then add eyeshadow Color Infallible Electric Cosmic Black Gold on the whole eyelid and lower lash line; and finish off the eyes with False Lashes mascara Telescopic Magnetic Black on the upper and lower eyelashes, focusing on the ends.

Cannes 2012: Barbara Palvin In Valentino Couture

Who: Barbara Palvin

Where: At the Lawless premiere during the Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A long-sleeved silk zig-zag patterned Valentino haute couture gown, featuring rope detailing to the neckline and waist, and an open back from the he autumn/winter 2011 haute couture collection; teamed with a white clutch

Verdict:Representing L’Oreal Paris, Barbara is one stunning model and looks amazing in this striking Valentino gown, even better than Maud Welzan did when she opened the AW11 haute couture show!!!

What I love is the romantic vibe of the dress, it flows wonderfully, and I love that she paired it with minimal accessories and put her hair up in a messy ponytail. I do love it when models walk the red carpet like with Natasha Poly, Barbara is letting the gown and her Rouge Caresse – scarlet red Aphrodite 06 lips do the talking.

Simply stunning.
