fashion friday

It’s a wrap! The Cannes film festival wrapped things up this past Saturday and the stars were styled in various shades and patterns … white. There were so many monochromatic frocks, and a clear lack of dress porn, that I began to get irritated as a flipped through the photos. I get that white is a hot trend right now, but come on! Give us a little variety to get excited over.

There were however two ladies who clearly won the red carpet and two who made me want to violently hurl my laptop out the window.

marion cotillard (L) – Can I just say how much I love her? Apart from her adorable personality it’s her fashion credibility that wins me over time and time again as she did with this Christian Dior dress. The bright vertical panels, Chopard jewellery, simple up-do and glowing complexion finish the look off with effortless glam.

nicole kidman (R) – nicole once again proved she can dominate the red carpet with this incredible L’Wren Scott dress. Between the unexpected and beautiful colours, the flattering silhouette and the double cuffs, which matched her earrings and hair brooches, she definitely brought it.

tilda swinton (L) – I have to give tilda credit because even though she wore GOLD PAJAMAS to Cannes she rocked it in her own eccentric way. But they’re still frumpy, figure-drowning gold pajamas. Coupled with that hair style and it becomes too much for me.

florence welch (R) – horrified. I was completely horrified by this outfit. It’s unflattering in shape and colour, the polka dots are an eye sore, the purse is matchy-matchy (don’t even get me started on matchy-matchy outfits) and the shoes…god those awful shoes. If I was her stylist I would fire myself immediately.

Thanks everyone for joining me this week and have a great weekend!

    Again…do the 2 worst dressed not own a mirror or even have a kind friend who would say, “What ARE you thinking?” Fun Fashion Friday!
