Hello lovelies, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! This week has been so super-stressful and the weekend could not have come any quicker. As you know, it's exam season so the pressure is on and you will have to forgive me if posts are scarce. After this horrible week, I've been spending the last few hours escaping in the glitz and glamour that comes with the annual Cannes Film Festival. Style-wise it just seems to get better and better each year. I've been drooling over some of the looks so I thought I would share my favourites with you so we can drool together, yay! I cannot wait to see more red carpet looks in the next few days, I'm going to alternate between exams and playing Cannes catch-up!
These are my top ten looks so far...
At number ten is the beautiful Emma Watson wearing Christopher Kane AW 13/14. I always think that accessories can make or break an outfit and in this case, the lack of accessories really works.
At number nine is Emma again (can you tell I have a girl crush?), this time wearing Chanel. I love this classic look on her and she still manages to look young and fresh.
At eight is supermodel Cindy Crawford who is seen wearing Roberto Cavalli and jewellery by Chopard (sponsors of the festival). It's insane how hot Cindy looks, if only we could all look so good at 47!
Number seven is Isla Fisher in Oscar de la Renta and jewellery by Bulgari. She just looks impeccable. It really annoys me that she blended into the carpet though because that dress is so stunning, it needs to be on show properly.
At number six on my favourite looks so far is Lana Del Ray. Monochrome is proving to be a major trend both on and off the red carpet, Lana looks exquisite in this gown from Lena Hoschek's spring collection.
Sonam Kapoor, at number five, looks every inch the Bollywood princess in this printed number by Dolce and Gabbana. It kind of reminds me of Lucy Liu in that Carolina Herrera gown.
At number four is a personal style crush of mine, Solange Knowles. I'm obsessed with her bright and bold off-duty look so was pleasantly surprised to see her in such a subtle colour. Solange really did steal the show in this gorgeous gown by Stephane Rolland which she paired with Chopard jewellery and a Jimmy Choo clutch. Beyonce who?
At number three is Fan Bingbing who also wins the award for the coolest name ever. Fan has really been upping the style stakes over at Cannes but this look from her is my favourite. She's wearing Elie Saab SS13.
Number two is another major girl crush of mine, eyebrow goddess, queen Delevingne - Cara. It's no surprise to see her wearing Burberry and boy does she wear it well! Hot hot hot and accessorized perfectly with those Chopard jewels.
And finally in the number one spot *drum roll*
is Zhang Yuqi.
WOWZERS. Seriously, she looks incredible. The gorgeous green of her Ulyana Sergeenko gown compliments her skintone perfectly. She looks flawless. I will never ever get over this look. Ever.
Whose look do you love?
