Well, there is certainly no rest for the weary if you are an A-List Celebrity taking part in all the festivities during the Cannes Film Festival! Last night was the always anticipated Amfar Cinema Against AIDS Gala and anyone who is anybody showed up to this event, to not only take part in a great party but donate to a very worthy cause. But, of course, here on my blog, what are we most interested in?? WHAT THEY WORE!
Let's take a look...
Uma Thurman dipped into the Chanel Archives and pulled out this periwinkle duchesse silk satin gown from Karl's Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2008 Collection. I'm glad she lost the flower belt and I love that she wore flat sandals! While most actresses have to temporarily hem the gowns as much as 12 inches, Uma needs to wear flats to make it work!!!
Kirsten Dunst looked picture perfect in her Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2011. I love how she added the satin skinny belt to define her waist and modified the shoulders to make it all more proportional. I even like the strong red lips as a nice contrast to the monochromatic blush ensemble.
I'm assuming this gown worn by Bar Rafaeli is Roberto Cavalli, but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. While it is certainly right on trend for the Miss Universe Pagaent, I think she needs to separate herself from the Beauty Queens and give us something that is less expected. I loved the blue jersey Cavalli she wore previously and think that is a better fit for her.
Brooke Shields is another actress, in that LONG list, that is hard to make look bad in almost anything. So, it is not really surprising she looks great in this Marchesa Spring 2011 Gown. I love how she looks like a woman (as opposed to the super skinny model). I, honestly, wouldn't be shocked to find out that this is the same sample dress as seen on the model. It is amazing how one dress can look so different.
A, yet again, slimmed down Janet Jackson looked fantastic in this Fall 2011 Haider Ackermann ensemble. It perfectly fits the "Janet Jackson" aesthetic with it's hints of menswear while maintaining it's femininity. If you look at the entire Haider Ackermann collection, you can see her wearing almost the entire collection. I suspect we'll see more from this pairing.
Jane Fonda is NOT letting the young starlets steal the spotlight on the Red Carpet in Cannes. Jane loves prints and color. This Roberto Cavalli Gown allows her to embrace both without being too over-the-top and also allows everybody to ogle over her STUNNING figure!
And finally...All Royals need to take note of the flawless and effortless style of Prince Albert of Monaco's fiancee Charlene Wittstock. Her marriage to Prince Albert is the next big Royal Wedding in July and it is rumored that, just as she is wearing here at this Amfar Event, she is expected to be wearing a Custom Armani Prive Gown. Even with the inevitable comparisons to Grace Kelly, Charlene seems and looks confident that her sense of style is equally as chic.
