Cannes Festival Fashion 2008

Now that Cannes is over, it is time to admire the dresses! Its not quite as fun to look at as the ones from the Costume Institute, but we got to take our joy where we can find them.
Best dress definitely goes to Natalie Portman. I love how all her outfits are so cute, funny, girly and yet she still looks elegant.
I love the flirty red tiered dress! Not so hot on this black/white number though. It doesn't look very well made. Nor particularly flattering.
Something more sophisticated. Cate Blanchett looks great in Armani. Mischa looks stunning too in that rich royal blue gown. Though I think she looks a little too sophisticated for her age.
Aishwarya Rai looks classic in that silver dress. And I absolutely adore the back and the long train of Penelope Cruz's cream Marchesa dress.
Now onto the disasters. How did Chanel come up with these two hideous creations to adorn Madonna and Gweneth Paltrow with? Though Madonna's dress actually makes Gweneth's dress look not so bad! Dita von Teese looks pale and ghostly in this green Christian Lacroix creation. Ugh. She looks much better in the simple white wrap dress.
Linsday Lohan looks like she's wearing an expensive green Persian rug. Angelina Jolie actually looks quite pretty here . The cutting of this Max Azria dress quite her current figure perfectly. I also love how she chose to wear minimal make-up. She already naturally glows from her condition. The only thing though is that I don't like this color. It just looks so.... earthy and dirty. She'd look much better in a more vibrant color.
Milla Jovovich needs to fire or hire (if she hasn't already got one) a stylist. And go eat something. Are those rib bones I see (right in green)?

I am almost certain that that cream and black dress Natalie is wearing is Lanvin, so you can bet it is more than well made. Sadly, in her case, well-made doesn't mean it flatters her.

With that mother to be glow Angelina can carry off almost any color. She looks gorgeous. I always love Natalie's red carpet dresses. She is so classy all the time.

Natalie Portman's red and blue dresses are a reminiscence of the 1920s flappers. They're short, tiered, lose, fun and upgraded to suite the new era. She looks great!

I like the color on Angelina as well. She just glow. Hope when it is my time, I will be able to glow like her too.... : )

Sigh. I adore Natalie. That blue dress is to DIE for, and she's just gorgeous. I do agree that I don't necessarily love the cream and black dress though. Check out, you might see some stuff you like!

I definitely agree with Lohan. I think if she laid down on the floor there should be two siamese cats next to her... Oh wait, that's Egyptian. Whatever. NVM

To Anonymous at 10:29, it's actually a Givenchy dress, but that means it's still well made of course. But it seems a little stiff, almost like the dress is wearing her.

At first I loved Natalie Portman's style at Cannes but then I changed my mind. The dresses are beautiful certainly, but she's worn the same look over and over: a ruffled dress by Lanvin (or similar), black patent clutch and shoes (look for the photo of her in a purple Lanvin dress, then look at the one of her in red again)...the shoes in the first two photos are nigh on identical, as is her hair!

Her look is stunning nonetheless, but it would've been put to better use had she not done it so many times over such a short period of time. It got boring, at least for me. Just my two cents.

On a different note, I love this blog to bits! Please don't stop : )

I think Cate Blanchett looks absolutely horrible; the color and cut do not flatter her in the least.

Is it possibly for Natalie Portman not to look absolutely stunning? Lohan looks terrible, that dress is just the wrong shape/too short on her! Mischa looks amazing in that blue but you're right she does look a little too sophisticated, to the point that it ages her a little!

I really like Angelina's dress, I think it would be perfect in black, though.

Hmmm...I wish I was pregnant with Brad Pitt's babies!

most of these dresses are just so fantastic, but those two chanel ones were really quite hideous. Also adore jolie's dress, agree that the color could have been better chosen. I have a blog too, come check it out.

I have never seen Natalie Portman or Angelina Jolie look bad. Natalie in purple Lanvin and the white origami Givenchy was perfect!

Both Madonna and Gwyneth both look amazing! These are unique super cool pieces. I can see from your blog that you are closed minded and have terrible taste in fashion so why don't you just move onto something you have knowledge on...mabey a blog for the boring suburban mom and daughter.

I love the volume that the dresses Natalie Portman wore gives her. Plus they are different from the norm- she looks like a part of nature.

Splurging On Yourself
Ladies, its time to admit that we have a very hard job! It can be difficult to do everything that

we have to do in a day, no matter whether you’re a stay-at-home mother, or a woman who works hard

in her chosen career. Some scientists have likened the female brain to a ball of string, where

everything is connected together and one thought leads to another. Just the idea of that is

exhausting! When it comes to pampering and splurging, most women will admit that they need it much

more than men do, but do not often spend money on themselves because they feel guilty. With exact

replica designer handbags, you can splurge on yourself without having to feel at all guilty.

The Chanel Medium Lambskin Shoulder Bag is the perfect replica designer handbag to give yourself

as a little gift. It is made of a supple and soft lambskin with a silky interior and multiple

compartments to hold all of your belongings. It is the perfect size handbag to bring with you no

matter where you have to go, and with the “double c” logo prominently displayed, everyone will

know that you’re carrying around a Chanel.

I don't care for Natalie Portman's dresses, but they're much better than Milla's. Blanchett always looks stunning.
