Naomi Watts in Marchesa
Dianna Kruger in Nina Ricci
 Anne Consigny in Alexis Mabille Couture

Cheryl Cole in Stephane Rolland
Jessica Chastain in Gucci (we know it's low cut, but we couldn't resist something so beautiful!)

Festival di Cannes 2012 - Party Vanity Fair Gucci e Life Ball
Li Bingbing and Frida Giannini (Gucci designer) both in Gucci designs
Jane Fonda in Roberto Cavali
 Barbara Palvin in Valentino
Eva Longoria in Alberta Ferreti
Fan Bingbing in Elie Saab
Fan Bingbing in Valentino Couture

So many beautiful gowns have been seen at Cannes this year. Yet, here are the more modest red carpet looks. We'd have to say that Fan Bingbing (who we've posted about before, here, and different from Li Bingbing up top) has been hitting the looks out of the park. I mean seriously? Her other looks worn at the festival are equally as stylish, but they happen to be strapless or too low cut etc. But man! That girl's got some style. Naomi Watts looked incredible in her Marchesa gown as well as Jessica Chastain in Gucci. We definitely have a soft spot for Jessica since she's a fellow class mate of ours, and we think she has looked amazing in every look at Cannes this year. We know the one pictured is low cut, but oh what a beautiful dress! We also absolutely loved Dianne Kruger's Nina Ricci dress. And funny enough Ms. Cosigny's Alexis Mabille Couture dress we have on our pinterest boards here. We also have some looks from Tilda Swinton coming, so stay tuned!

We've had a lot of dressy looks as of late, so we wanted to go for a more casual Tuesday. We decided to pair teal and navy together today (which funny enough, we forgot we did last year here). We figured we'd implement Clinton Kelly's advice in working with color by adding a texture (that being the snakeskin/zebra-esque clutch). This is a definite favorite clutch of ours as of late, so we hope you guys don't get sick of seeing it. It's a really good buy at H&M right now if you too would like to add some texture to your wardrobe. By the way, we're kinda liking the color plus texture advice. We think it helps bring depth or something more interesting to an otherwise pretty colorful outfit. What do you guys think?

CHRISTIAN DIOR COUTURE SPRING 2012 - Grace Kelly inspired?

We like to call this the frothy Grace Kelly collection. All of these looks are so retro where even the stylings of hair and make-up remind us of Princess Grace. It makes you want to jump back into the movie High Society, where every look Grace wore looked like these. I wish we could show you the gowns in this collection but they were just barely not covering over the shoulders (here's one that is to die for). Wow, this is inspiring one us to break out her 'Grace Kelly' look. Stay tuned...

CANNES 2012 HIGHLIGHT - Eva Herzigova in Dolce and Gabbana

We're not the only ones who noticed it, but this look of Eva's reminds us so much of this scene, it's crazy. Something about the hair, the diamonds, the red carpeted stairs and the men in black all around her, have made us want to start singing "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend!" For your sake, it's a good thing blog posts come without sound.  OK we'll try to get beyond the Marilyn Monroe similarity, but truly, she looks stunning don't you think?

We ran into Sarah from Welcome to the Good life at Tiffany last week and didn't she look so cute? We are in love with her Tahari dress from Macy's (lovely Sarah sent us a link to where you can buy it here).  We didn't realize it when we first met her, but we were already familiar with her blog. One of her DIY puffy sleeve post images showed up on Pinterest and we were so intrigued that we spent a while trying to find out where it came from (Man! Pinterest makes it so hard to trace image sources). To make a long story short, let's just say we finally found her, and ever since we've been hooked (you should check out her recent post on dying your own mint-colored jeans here).  Anyway, she's quite creative, (besides being beautiful) and we were glad we got to meet her.
      Lastly... do you notice the color of her finger nails? Man, we wish we had a close up on them. Yes, we're pretty sure that's Tiffany blue there. And we must admit, it's very fitting....

ASHI COUTURE - Designer Highlight

Here's a designer we are very unfamiliar with. But his designs are beautiful, aren't they? They remind us of the Dior couture collection we saw for Spring (which we'll post soon). There are bolts upon bolts of whispy fabrics, making for beautiful, frothy collections. 
     Just a little bit about Mohammed Ashi; he's a designer from Kuwait who became known for his caftans. So if you go to his website here, you can see that there is a whole section devoted to some of the most beautiful caftans we've ever seen. But truly he's shining outside of this. His designs are starting to be seen on the red carpet these days by celebrities like Eva Longoria. We definitely think his name will continue to get out there as his beautiful designs become more and more well known. Do you have a favorite? We really can't decide....
