Day 9; Cannes Film Festival style

Day 9
Georgina Chapman and Jourdan Dunn
wearing Marchesa and Ralph &a Russo
Black is beautiful, sheer is stunning and don't these darlings prove it. Georgina Chapman, one half of Marchesas founders, provokes nothing but curiosity with her dynamic and mesmerising printed dress with gorgeous puffed out sleeves. Ralph & Russo have absolutely killed it this season with both ready to wear and couture. We have seen many fashionistas choose Ralph & Russo for the red carpet over the past few months and we can only hope this continues. These ensembles incorporate the finest detail and precision of cut in order to present a vision of elegance on every occasion. 

Kendall Jenner
wearing Fendi
How can one woman make the highest of fashion look so effortless? Kendall, Karl and Fendi are a dream. Their numerous collaborations are perfection. Is there a colour that Kendall doesn't suit? Her mini blue playsuit paired with pointed white flats is a Cannes dream.

Toni Garn, Mackenzie Foy and Marion Cotillard
wearing Elie Saab, Oscar de la Renta and Dior couture
We finish Cannes with a fairytale dream, would we expect any less?
On the last day of Cannes only the finest designers debuted their extraordinary pieces as we can see. Whilst everyone of these pieces are fabulous it is that beautiful Oscar de la Renta that I find myself gazing at. This is the Oscar we all know and love and once again we can only applaud Peter Copping for continuing the Oscar name and upholding his legacy.

Which was your favourite look today darlings?
Whilst I adore Kendall and Fendi it has to be ... 
Mackenzie Foy
... and her Oscar de la Renta. You know how much I adore him.

Cannes is over darlings?! Can you believe it! 
Whilst we are devastated that we have to leave the French Riviera until next year it is time to get Summer ready and I have something super exciting to reveal.

Watch this space.

amfAR Gala; Cannes Film Festival style

amfAR Gala
Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn
 
wearing Calvin Klein and Vera Wang
Could we have placed two other ensembles together and have made them look this good?! Most certainly not. These supermodels were all about laid back understatement at this years Cannes amfAR gala. Whilst their cut out designs and flowing skirts are a little dramatic the colours are blunt yet beautiful. These two designers had a very similar mindset in these creations and whatever they have on their mind it is working. Another set of show stopping ensembles from our favourites.

Dita Von Teese and Toni Garn
wearing Ulyana Sergeenko couture and Elie Saab
Now these are the risk takers! How daring are these hit or miss ensembles? Whilst they have many divided opinions amongst their critics I find them both stunning. Whilst Dita chooses a simple design with a focus on a voluminous skirt, Toni's dipped hem Elie Saab is one of the most memorable ready wear to pieces from the whole of SS15 fashion month.

Rita Ora, Barbara Palvin, Doutzen Kroes
 and Michelle Rodriguez
wearing Marchesa, La Perla, Maison Margiela and Romona Keveza
If you were following awards season style darlings, you will know that red is the colour of the moment. I spoke yesterday of how this was the iconic colour of Donna Karan but it is clear to see that she is not the only designer can work its magnificence. I absolutely adore the prominence of one colour at any event. It is simply fascinating to examine the cuts, textures and overall presence that each have to offer. I think you can agree that not one of these stunning creations is even close in similarity to the other, yet the presence of each and everyone is flawless.

Chanel Iman and Eva Longoria
wearing Zuhair Murad and Georges Hobeika couture
Forget about Disney Princesses, it's all about the Queens of the French Riviera! These two starlets fall nothing short of show stopping in their pristine creations. 
They are quite literally a fairytale dream.

Alicia Vikander and Diane Kruger
 
wearing Louis Vuitton and Chanel
Here we have another perfect example of black dominance. We have another dream leather skirt from Louis Vuitton, similar to Alicia's outfit of the day just yesterday. Here we see the same design and the same trend enter both day and evening wear and absolutely killing it. 
This Chanel ... well we all know it's speaks for itself and has the ability to leave us speechless, King Karl did design it after all- enough said.

Zoe Kravitz, Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss
and Mary J Blige
wearing Vionnet, Tom Ford and Versace
White, light, bright and beautiful. We discussed just yesterday the amazing impact of the colour white and Zoe and Gigi's ensembles reaffirm this. I chose to categorise darling summer white with these exquisite silver ensembles. They both thrive on simplicity in their effortless presence.

Anna Rubik and Marion Cotillard
wearing Dsquared 2 and Jean Paul Gaultier
Here we have two designers that were previously absent on the Cannes red carpet.
We asked for bold and vibrant but did we expect this?
Absolutely not.
Do we love it? 
Absolutely.

Sienna Miller, Eva Herzigova, Karolina Kurkova
and Lara Stone
wearing Ralph Lauren, Dior, Alexis Mabille couture and Saint Laurent
Regal and ravishing. If you want to show your power and true dominance at every event cut the corners and go straight to the trend that will produce inevitable success. Gold, silver, metallic and embellishment.

Natasha Poly, Irina Shayk and Joan Small
wearing Saint Laurent, Versace and Riccardo Tisic
The best of the best.
A range of designers, designs and starlets.
Tremendous trends, dominant colours and the sleekest hair and beauty looks.

The amfAR Gala always delivers and for me it was
Chanel Iman
.... who wore my favourite look. Forever flawless.

Day 7&8; Cannes Film Festival style

Days 7&8
Karlie Kloss
wearing Louis Vuitton and Oscar de la Renta
Karlie can do no wrong. This international supermodel kills it on every occasion, whatever designer she is wearing. Whilst these ensembles are hit or miss to many, Karlie works their brilliance and ensures these divine pieces have show stopping status. Karlie has many different sides to her style and is willing to experiment. Whilst her Louis Vuitton is sleek and daring, Oscar de la Renta, her beloved favourite (she has walked his shows since the age of 16), is all about high society. The two are dramatically different yet have equally striking value. Whilst I adore her Louis Vuitton I am just obsessed with the fishtail bottom and the colour of this Peter Copping perfection.

Doutzen Kroes
wearing Dior, Mulger and Calvin Klein
In just twenty four hours we were exposed to three elegant ensembles from Doutzen Kroes. Whilst her style thrives on minimalism, this works to the advantage of her amazing hair and beauty looks- she is just too glam. The variation from fitted and strapless, to halter with a thigh high slit and most notable an oversized lady tuxe shows that Doutzen, like Karlie is willing to experiment with her style. Whilst these gowns are gorgeous it is the lady tuxe that appeals to me most, you will definitely be taking a second look of admiration.

Chanel Iman
wearing Donna Karan and Reem Acra
Chanel has proven her supermodel status many times like just the other week at the White House Correspondent's dinner. This means we are not even the slightest bit surprised when we see her dominate the Cannes red carpet in the most effortless way. Proving she can thrive in high society and gets a little sassier when it comes to after parties, Chanels style is simply flawless. Donna Karan red is my favourite kind of red, and is what I would consider iconic of the brand. On the other hand, the shimmer overlay trend is everywhere and is one trend we fell in love with in an instance.

Kendall Jenner
wearing Alaia and Sally Lapoint
Oraganza heaven. Does Kendall Jenner ever wear a bad ensemble? She tops my best dressed list most weeks whether this is day wear or evening wear. She embraces the Cannes culture, wearing only the most flawless creations that are feel laid back and effortless but are completely chic and sophisticated. It was fabulous to see Alaia on the red carpet as we often see this designer relegated to day wear. I am obsessed with Kendall's silver skirt and cropped top. Her style is the envy of everyone and yes she is still only 19.

Lily Donaldson and Haim
                         
wearing Calvin Klein
Calvin Klein certainly knows how to dress the starlets and style it to their own respected personas. This is the third halter neck ensemble we have seen Lily wearing with a deep v plunge this week. This style is ridiculously flattering and its simplicity really does exemplify her natural beauty. The Haim sisters make Calvin Klein cool and chic. Whilst embracing the hottest trends such as flares and crops their simple looks flaunt the brands best use of colour- Calvin Klein is a master of white.

Araya A. Hargate and Daria Strokous
wearing Ashi Studio and Luisa Beccaria
Forget everything I have said about high society and let these ensembles speak for themselves.
Could these be better than the Met ball gowns?!

Adriana Lima and Alicia Vikander
wearing Ulyana Sergeenko and Louis Vuitton
Sophistication at its finest. Could these looks be any more powerful if they tried? Adriana's dynamic black midi is striking and feels very Angelina Jolie at the 2012 Oscars, minus the slit. Louis Vuitton on the other hand have succeeded in their utilising of diverse textures this season. Whilst the colour of Alicia's ensemble is also divine it is the leather skirt that we find ourselves gazing at- we literally cannot take our eyes of it.

Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne
wearing Vionnet and Saint Laurent
White requires no explanation, it speaks for itself. 
We thought we loved Winter white the most however these SS15 looks would suggest otherwise.

Emily Blunt
wearing Calvin Klein, Peter Pilotto and Stella McCartney
Finally, say hello to some British designers! Emily Blunt has been the woman of the week after the Cannes, 'women must wear heels' regulation came to prominence. Here she proves that whatever she wears she kills it. My favourite is actually her Peter Pilotto, his prints along with those of Mary Katrantzou are most certainly my favourite of any designers. They never fail.

Joan Smalls
wearing Alaia and Givenchy
Oh Joan, why are are you so stunning! From top to bottom this supermodel is flawless. Her hair and beauty looks are on point and it is only right she flaunts her gorgeous pins. We question how she can make such monotone ensembles look this good? It is all about confidence darlings. Joan embraces and dominates.

Irina Shyak and Rachel Weisz
wearing Versace and Calvin Klein
These darlings are red carpet pros and their stunning presence only proves this. This is one example where whether you are draped in the finest embellishment or the sleekest shade of summer bright your domination on the red carpet is inevitable.

Natalie Portman and Nikki Reed
wearing Lanvin and Azzaro
Is it okay to sit and stare at this beautiful couples?
So chic, so flawless.

Natalie Vodiaonva and Sienna Miller
wearing Calvin Klein
We will never get enough of Calvin Klein and his Cannes presence. Once again simplicity overrides and these ensembles falls nothing short of fabulous.
Cate Blanchett
wearing Armani Prive
Cannes Queen.
Red carpet Queen.

Who was your best dressed darlings?
For me it was ...
Kendall Jenner
.... who wore my favourite look. Her ensembles speak for themselves
