The celebrities were out in force at last week’s Cannes Film Festival and there was a distinct 1950’s Hollywood glamour theme on the red carpet. Big curls, red lips and diamonds made the festival what it is and the dresses lived up to the accessories. Salma Hayek wore a stunning red embellished floor length gown with thigh high split, Naomi Watts went strapless in a long elegant nude dress with sparkling stripes and Marion Cotillard kept it modern with her sequinned jumpsuit. All in all a very elegant affair full of inspiring styles and outfits. Although we might not have a red carpet event of our own to attend it will certainly give us some ideas for the up and coming summer weddings and parties we will be attending.
Get the 1950’s look with our Classic Floral Dress. It has a flattering V neckline and is pulled in at the waist for that all important 50’s hour glass figure. The cut of this dress will also help to balance out a top heavy figure and the print is on trend for summer. Possibly the perfect summer dress for all your occasions this season! Wear this dress with big soft waves or an elegant up do and plenty of red lip stick to complete the look.
The gossip from the festival;
- Christian Louboutin turned up with a mysterious black van full of shoes and circus dancers to promote his new line which was apparently inspired by Cannes.
- Eva Herzigova stopped traffic in her bright blue one shoulder mini dress (we’d like one too please, if that’s the effect they have)!
- Jenifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony became serial yacht hoppers as they jumped from one luxury boat to the next.
- And finally, Grace Jones performed (a mere 6 hours late) wearing a thong and a top hat and at 62 we’re not sure whether to applaud her or give her a pair of trousers!
