Cannes 2013: The Good, the Bad and The Great Gatsby.

Yesterday was day one of Cannes Film Festival, and Baz Lurhmann's glorious new spectacular, The Great Gatsby,  headlined the opening gala. Cannes is a visual spectacle not only because of the films but for the remarkable stars that turn out every year and the glitz and glamour they bring with them. 

The biggest stars, the biggest dresses, the biggest diamonds; Cannes is feast for the eyes.

Carey Mulligan looked beautiful in a Dior Couture powder pink gown which complimented her stunning skin tone with jewels from Tiffany & Co., who designed the jewels for the film. Her hair was minimal slicked back and worn loose, she punctuated the simple look with a bold red lip, courtesy of NARS. Lipstick in Jungle Red worn with Jungle Red lipliner.

Isla Fisher looked beautiful as always in a red tired Oscar de la Renta dress with Bulgari Heritage Collection jewels.

Palme d’Or jury members Daniel Auteuil, Nicole Kidman and Steven Spielberg.

Nicole Kidman wore an Alexander McQueen AW13 dress with box-pleated sleeves. As the new face of Jimmy Choo's AW13 campaign, she of course accessorised with a bold croc toe-capped Jimmy Choo heel.

Nicole stole the show in a glorious Dior Couture gown with coral Dior stilettos. 

 A Style Fail?

I think Cara Delevingne is an absolutely fantastic model. She manages to look unbelievable in every ad campaign, editorial and on every red carpet she graces. However, for me this look, despite not being cheap at all, manages to look cheap. 
Dark eyes, dark lips, lots of skin, lace, diamonds; it's just a little O.T.T. 
She of course looks stunning, but this Burberry lace dress and tarty make up is too much for me.

And, before the partying began.

 The white dresses.
