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: Lupita Nyong’o In Calvin Klein Collection

lupita-calvin-klein

Who: Lupita Nyong’o 

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

Wearing: A custom Calvin Klein Collection halter gown embellished in pearls and ivory beads by womenswear creative director Francisco Costa

Verdict: I thought it was going to be hard for her to top that gorgeous Prada gown from last year’s Oscars, but wow this is gorgeous. The pearl-embellished bodice is just so beautiful, and apparently the gown carries approx 6,000 beads, in five different variations of sizes, you really have to appreciate the exquisite detailing her. 

For me, what makes this so special is that it is so different, I love the unique keyhole detailing, the column fit of the gown, as well as the colour on her.

I think this is a look that will be remembered for years to come.

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.

 

Cover Loving: Lupita Nyong’o Nails Her First Vogue Cover

I am so pleased that Lupita Nyong’o is gracing her first Vogue cover, she really did make the 2014 award season *do you remember her white Calvin Klein gown*, and I am even more pleased that it is a great cover.

Shot by Mikael Jansson, Lupita looks incredible in this Marrakech photoshoot wearing vibrant designs by Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Vera Wang, Jonathan Saunders, Givenchy and Prada that gorgeous red and purple print dress looks insane on her.

I think one of my favourite shots has to be where Lupita is reclining against a red velvet couch wearing a printed Rodarte gown, I love that the prints are so similar that her beauty really becomes the focal point of the picture, and I think the gorgeous Moroccan setting was just genius. So beautiful.

I think this will be the first of many major covers for Lupita and I can’t wait to see what else this gorgeous actress has to share.

Are you pleased that Lupita has scored her first Vogue cover?
