Summer Fashion: Celebs Dress Up For Solstice

Summer is officially here now that we’ve just had the summer solstice (the longest day of the year). And what better way to celebrate than by throwing a party? Now that it stays light for longer, an early evening party in the fresh air can last for longer.

Light, summer parties have a different atmosphere than parties in a dark space – I just think we all feel more free. And everyone’s in a good mood when it’s warm and hot rather than when it’s cold and you have to wear a million layers. When dressing for summer parties, the goal is to stay cool and look cool and the stars got this right at their summer solstice party at London’s five star EDITION hotel. Let’s have a look at their outfits for some inspiration:

Alexa Chung

Alexa has always been on-trend with the latest fashions and I think she looked absolutely stunning in a tea dress. It’s floaty and it’s feminine and the lace detail on the neckline made the outfit look a lot more eye-catching. With this dress, you wouldn’t need a coat and would be comfortable whatever the weather.

Laura Bailey

Florals are perfect for summer and model Laura Bailey looks fabulous in her floral maxi dress. Maxi dresses are super flattering and so are prints because the colours attract the eye to the length of the dress to make the wearer appear slimmer. You can never have enough florals in your life – or wardrobe!

Sienna Miller

Sequins are so much fun in the sun as they reflect the light and make sure everyone sits up and pays attention. If you want to stand out for the right reasons at a summer party then a sequin dress will help you do that. Sienna accessorises with a lovely golden tan and black sandals and looks a million dollars.

Mollie King

When dressing for summer, fabric is important. Mollie’s satin cami and loose long coat would ensure she kept her cool whatever happened during the night. That smile expresses the fact that she both looks and feels fantastic.

Whose summer outfit did you like the most? Enjoy the start of summer!

Tony Awards: Glamorous Celebrity Eveningwear

The Tony awards are The Oscars of the theatre industry with judges picking the best shows and best actors and actresses on Broadway. Often, Hollywood stars take a break to do something serious at the theatre and so we have the same stars that attend the Oscars at these Tony awards and they make just as much effort with their dresses. This is good news for us as it’s very inspiring to see what evening wear the celebs are picking right now.

One way the Tonys differ from the Oscars is that the Tonys are in the height of summer so the stars’ dresses tend to be a lot brighter and bolder. This year was no exception with some lovely nudes, whites and yellows mixing with multi-colour creations. It’s fun to go for brights at this time of year and it livens up your skin tone so you look healthier and more alive.

These are my favourite outfits from the Tony awards:

Michelle Williams

The Brokeback Mountain actress dazzled on the red carpet in a white maxi dress. I love the detail on the dress as the black straps are a cool touch and mean she can match it with some black heels and a black clutch for a monochrome effect. White is a classic choice for summer, isn’t it?

Saoirse Ronan

After being nominated for an Oscar, Saoirse’s gone into theatre and she looks a lot more grown-up already. The beige maxi dress is really eye-catching as it looks like she’s wearing nothing from a distance. It’s an outfit for those who want to shock!

Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita looks incredible in a multi-colour maxi dress with a bardot neckline. A dress with a print like this is very flattering because the eye is drawn to the all over print rather than any specific part of the body.

Lucy Liu

Yellow is so popular this season! The Charlie’s Angels actress is just the latest of many celebrities to wear a yellow dress to an awards ceremony or intimate party. It really suits her skin tone, don’t you think?

Jourdan Dunn

Jourdan puts the super in supermodel in a pink maxi dress – it’s so pretty and summery! I love the bodycon top, which flows out into a wider skirt as this helps us all to have a more hourglass shape. Whether you have curves or want to create curves this will help you enhance what you have.

Joan Smalls

The American model also looked super gorgeous in her multi-colour maxi dress. When you know you look good – as Joan clearly does – then you walk taller and with more attitude. Joan’s got her hands on her hips in a defiant pose in this picture as she’s challenging people to compete with her on a fashion level. Well, we can’t compete but we can certainly copy.

Claire Danes

Claire’s one of the few stars to have gone for a black maxi dress, but it is made from a summery material. It’s just loose enough to float around her frame so she looks like a Princess when she walks with the dress flowing out behind her. You can wear black in summer, as long as you’re careful about the material you chose.

Who do you think looked the most glamorous? I love looking at dresses that will wow people!

Celeb Style Steal: How To Look Exactly Like Rochelle Humes

The Glamour Woman of The Year Awards was full of gorgeous celeb ladies and Rochelle Humes stood out from the crowd in a stunning green satin maxi dress. The colour made everyone look twice, the material was luxurious and the lace trim topped off the look.

I had complete outfit envy with the green-eyed monster over that gorgeous green dress but thankfully it didn’t last long as she revealed that the dress was from her own collection for Very. This means we can all get our hands on that lovely dress and wow at summer parties. If you want that kind of positive attention, the dress is the Rochelle Humes lace slip dress and she styles it with a choker like the V by Very tassel pendant choker.

For this kind of dress, which is long and slinky, you need a pair of strappy sandals so they don’t spoil the line of the dress. A pair of high heels will help to elongate our figures so we look taller and more elegant. So why not mix height and straps with the Shoe Box Paris asymmetric heeled sandals? I love it!

Where would you wear an outfit like this?

Capital Radio Summertime Ball: Coolest Outfits

The Capital Radio summertime ball is always one of the most fun events of the summer. Held at Wembley arena, it’s like a festival in one afternoon / evening as bands from around the world each play one or two of their best hits. There’s no need to sit through songs you don’t know as each artist is only on for such a short time so you really get the good stuff.

This short stage time is also an advantage for us as it means the artists dress to make an impression. Its great inspiration for knock-out party wear – these outfits have helped the stars make an impression and will do the same for us. So let’s have a look at some of the cool outfits:

Ariana Grande

ariana-jacket

The American singer looked super cute in an oversize jacket and over the knee boots. The monochrome combination really catches the eye – she looks super cute. Her jacket is very similar to the North Face mira jacket.

Louisa Johnson

After winning X Factor, Louisa’s kept a low profile but now she’s out and she’s definitely not hiding as she wore a gorgeous multi-colour bodycon dress. I love how she’s dyed her hair purple too – she looks a lot more edgier than your average pop star.

Perrie Edwards

Little Mix’s Perrie stood out from the rest of the gang with an eye-catching denim mini skirt and matching denim jacket. The light blue colour complemented her summer tan and the beachy wavy hair makes it seem like she hasn’t tried too hard and is effortlessly cool. Sometimes, denim is just the best.

Little Mix

The other Little Mix ladies wore denim in different ways and I think they all looked gorgeous, don’t you? It doesn’t matter if they’re in a denim dress or a denim skirt – they rock the denim look!

Clean Bandit’s Grace Chatto

With pink hair, Grace has always been more of a rock chick than a girly girl but she always looks amazing. I loved the leather jacket that she wore over her shoulders at the Capital summertime ball. It works so well with the high waist trousers as it gives her a gorgeous shape by highlighting her slim waist. You don’t have to be in a dress to look feminine.

Royal Academy Summer Party: Hot Party Dresses

The Royal Academy art gallery in London is one super exclusive venue so when a party is held there you can guarantee some seriously classy outfits. It’s annual summer party is always celeb-studded as the stars get to see the summer’s new artworks before anyone else and they know that a lot of photographers will be outside to snap the celebrities in all their finery.

For that reason, the stars dress to impress and that’s great news for us and it gives us lots of inspiration about what to wear to parties this summer. I loved Donna Air’s stunning red dress, but Daisy Lowe also looked incredible in white. Let’s have a closer look at the best outfits:

Donna Air

I really like Donna’s red dress as it stands out on a light summer night. It’s such a vibrant colour that you would feel like the party had started as soon as you looked in a mirror and saw your reflection staring back. If you want to get noticed then wear red.

Daisy Lowe

Daisy’s white maxi dress looks so classy! It’s bodycon and hugs her curves but its not too low cut so she still looks elegant. White always enhances a summer tan and Daisy looks positively glowing.

Jaime Winstone

Jaime’s just had a baby and this is one of her first nights out so she made the most of it in a statement multi-coloured dress. You don’t get many dresses like this. Trying a unique dress can be risky but Jaime’s on her first night out and determined to enjoy it. If you wear something with the right attitude then a unique dress will make everyone jealous of how cool you are.

Cressida Bonas

Prince Harry’s ex girlfriend looked really pretty in a floral skater dress with black fringed ankle boots. I bet Prince Harry is kicking himself for letting her go as she looks stunning. The biker jacket and ankle boots give her look an extra edge and she shows it’s possible to be fierce and feminine at the same time.

Emilia Fox

The Silent Witness actress went for a maxi skirt and a top and looked gorgeous. This is a really flattering outfit as the skirt is worn high above her waist and it makes her middle look slimmer as a result. An outfit like this is designed to show off curves and create an hourglass silhouette. This kind of skirt would also keep her cool as it’s lovely and floaty.

Glamour Magazine Awards 2016: Gorgeous Outfits

The Glamour Woman Of The Year awards is one of the best events of the summer with celebrities who’ve been interviewed by the magazine or want to be interviewed by the magazine partying in a marquee in central London. This year did not disappoint as gorgeous celeb ladies from around the world joined the party. It was A’list!

What I like about the awards is that all types of stars attend – actresses, singers and TV presenters. This means we get to see different styles of party outfits and that means we can all look at a different star for inspiration. So let’s have a closer look and who wore what so you can pick your style icon:

Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney’s younger sister Kim attended the awards last year, but this time the eldest Kardashian sister took the spotlight. Kourtney definitely made the most of the occasion to dress up and looked absolutely gorgeous in a red midi dress. She’s thought about every detail of this look as the gold heels and accessories complement the shine on her dress. 

Rochelle Humes

The Very designer, TV Presenter, Saturday and mum showed she can multi-task and still look gorgeous. Her green maxi dress looked lovely next to her skin and the material was luxurious meaning that lots of other celebs had dress envy. If you like the dress, you can get the exact one – it’s the lace trim slim dress from her Very collection.

Fearne Cotton

Wow! I love the contrasting velvet and mesh fabrics on Fearne’s blue maxi dress. She looks elegant and trendy at the same time with her cool clutch and awesome hair adding an edge to what would be a classically chic dress.

Laura Whitmore

I like this outfit, because it makes you look twice. At first glance, Laura looks like she’s covering up, but when you look closer at this red maxi dress you can see that its transparent at the side. Wearing red always gets a girl noticed!

Gemma Arterton

Former Bond Girl Gemma looked super chic in a blue midi dress. As most other stars wore maxi dresses, she stood out for staying true to her usual dress sense. She knows what suits her and she wears it with confidence.

Little Mix

Two of the girl group went for black maxi dresses and two went for white maxi dresses to ensure that everyone knew they were together and to get maximum exposure because they looked incredible in photos. Do you prefer the black or the white? One thing all four have in common is that they all flash some flesh whether it’s with a split leg, a hint of midriff or some shoulder cleavage. At this time of year, you need to show some skin to stay cool as much as anything else.

Caroline Flack

Caroline shows she’s moved on from X Factor in the best way possible – by attending a public event and making sure she looks fabulous. Yellow is becoming a really popular colour among celebs this season and Caroline certainly looks gorgeous in her yellow dress.

Amanda Holden

After looking incredible day-in, day-out on Britain’s Got Talent, it’s a wonder that Amanda has any dresses left. But clearly she has and this floral maxi dress really stands out. I always love a floral print as the brightness cheers me up when I look in the mirror and Amanda is glowing in her dress. What do you think?

Holly Willoughby

Clever Holly has taken a real risk by wearing black tailored trousers and a bardot top when everyone else is reall dressed up, but I think she pulls it off. The sleek hair and make-up really helps because it shows she’s ready for a night out and because the outfit hugs her curves, she looks really pretty. She won Best TV presenter.

Fleur East

Fleur always dresses with attitude and her pretty blue midi dress is another indication  of that because she’s worn it to an event where most people wear maxi dresses. Because it’s a unique shade of blue that’s perfect for summer she pulls it off as the colour catches everyone’s eye, don’t you think?

Radio 1’s Big Weekend: Festival Outfit Inspiration

We’ve already had Coachella in the US, but now festival season has started in the UK with Radio 1’s Big Weekend over the bank holiday. The Isle Of Wight festival is just a couple of weeks away and Glastonbury is at the end of the month. What’s a girl to wear?

Thankfully there were lots of female singers at Radio 1’s Big Weekend and I always think it’s useful to see what the stars are wearing when we’re thinking about our own packing. They are experienced at festival-going so they know what’s practical and what’s not but they still want to look good – just like us. We want to keep warm and dry but we don’t want to look boring!

So let’s have a close look at what the celebs wore to Radio 1’s Big Weekend:

Ellie Goulding

Shorts are always great for festivals as you stay cool in warmer weather and you can just wipe your legs clean if it rains. Nobody wants soggy trousers sticking to them in the rain. Ellie’s Dr Marten boots add some attitude to the look and means she can still run – and jump – around the stage. Boots are a must if you want to enjoy the festival from the front of the audience and get involved in some dancing.

Meghan Trainor

Meghan shows you can still be feminine at a festival. Her black bodycon dress looks amazing and it fits like a second skin, showing off her gorgeous curves. I like how she also wears ankle boots but hers have a little heel. As long as you wear a block heel and not a pencil heel, why not add a bit of height to make you walk with more confidence through the festival site.

Paloma Faith

Paloma takes feminine to another level in a black mini dress and black boots. It’s a look that you can wear if you’re going to a festival for the day rather than camping over or a look you could wear on the first day. What do you think?

Iggy Azalea

Look closely and you’ll see Iggy is wearing shorts with a long t-shirt. This would be good for the day and you could add a blazer or a waterproof if the weather took a turn for the worse. What makes it look more glam than simply shorts and a t-shirt is the boots. If you have good footwear, you always look more glamorous.

Jess Glynne

I love Jess’s outfit as she looks like the ultimate rock chick in her black skinny jeans and black ankle boots. Notice that the black boots have a chunky heel so that she stays comfortable. Black can be an ideal colour to wear to a festival if there’s a chance of bad weather as it means the mud won’t show!

Are you planning on going to any festivals this summer? Let the fun commence!

British Soap Awards 2016: Best Dressed

You can count on Soap stars to dress up for an awards ceremony. Eastenders, Coronation Street and Hollyoaks stars have to act out such dramatic and tense storylines on screen, so when they get a chance to relax they want to let their hair down and look glamorous.

The Soap Awards is their chance to dress up and show how pretty they can look off screen and everyone spends all day getting ready. This year was no exception as there were some seriously gorgeous dresses in the auditorium of London’s Hackney Empire. For our summer parties and big nights out, we can take inspiration from what the celebs were wearing.

These stars did particularly well with their outfits:

Stephanie Waring

The Hollyoaks actress looked as glam as a Hollywood movie star in a red maxi dress as she walked the red carpet at the awards. I love the pleats of her dress as they create a gorgeous, feminine look and really flatter her figure. A dress with a full-skirt makes anyone’s waist look slimmer.

Nikki Sanderson

Nikki also went for a red maxi dress, but I love the sparkles in hers. A sequin dress always stands out on a night out and gets you in the party mood when you look at yourself in the mirror. I think she looks stunning – what do you think?

Kym Marsh

The Coronation Street star looked so elegant in her red strapless maxi dress. I absolutely love the fishtail effect, which shows off her hourglass shape. You can tell by her smile that she feels good and that’s because she looks good. If you are thinking of wearing a red dress, it’s important to know that it fits you well as that adds to your confidence.

Jacquelie Jossa

The Eastenders actress also wore a red dress and looked very pretty – I can see a trend going on for red dresses now. She’s definitely lost all her baby weight now and looks fantastic.

Lacey Turner

Not everyone wore red! I was really captivated by Lacey’s canary yellow dress – I think the Eastenders actress looks fabulous. I’ve seen more celebs wear yellow dresses recently. Now that it’s summer, it’s a really appropriate colour to wear. I like that she’s kept it simple with the shape and found something classic and flattering and uses the colour to draw attention to the dress that fits her perfectly.

Lucy Jo Hudson

The Coronation Street star enhanced her light tan in a white maxi dress. She looked bronzed and beautiful in this classic maxi dress. The gold heels are a nice extra touch as white and gold go so well together.

Gemma Atkinson

The Hollyoaks actress went for a classic black maxi dress, but what I like about it is that the halterneck detail looks super elegant, especially with her hair up. This is a really classy dress and Gemma stands out because she’s showing off a bit of shoulder while keeping everything else under wraps. I do like a halterneck dress!

However, it seems red is a fashionable colour to wear this summer. What do you think? Or do you prefer yellow? Let’s hope there are a lot of parties this summer so we can wear both!

Vogue’s 100th Birthday: Who Wore What

Vogue Magazine has been running for 100 years and they couldn’t let that occasion pass without a massive party. All the celebs that had been on the front cover recently attended and wore some incredible dresses. When Vogue invites you to an event, you have to show that you know what’s on trend or what’s ahead of the trends.

This makes that party great inspiration for us. We know that the stars did a lot of research to get the right outfit and so if we look at what they wore and copy it, we’re guaranteed to get something right.

The best dressed celebs were:

Kim Kardashian

Kim really made sure everyone looked at her as she showed off her post-baby weight loss in a sheer long sleeve maxi dress. The exact outfit is maybe not one to copy but I like the shape of the maxi dress and there are a lot of dresses with flirty mesh embellishments available right now.

Kate Moss

Kate kept things simple in a sophisticated long sleeve black maxi dress. I think she stands out in this more because it’s a bit different to her usual rock chick style – she looks quite ladylike. This dress is great for a formal occasion as it makes anyone look classy and chic.

Cheryl

Cheryl went for a fashion-forward look with over the knee boots and a black mini dress and looked like she had her own style going on. An important part of fashion is wearing something that gives you confidence and makes you feel powerful and you wouldn’t mess with Cheryl in an outfit like this. It’s fierce!

Lara Stone

David Walliams’ model ex-wife showed she wasn’t wasting time crying over the split – she went out and looked fabulous! I love the cut-out and monochrome effect on the black maxi dress. There are a million ways to wear a black maxi dress as you can keep it chic and classy like Kate Moss or be bold with monochrome like Lara.

Alexa Chung

Alexa always looks a bit different from everyone else and she looked stunning in a culotte jumpsuit. A jumpsuit is always a way to get noticed at a formal event and it’s also usually more comfortable than wearing a dress as you feel more secure in it. What do you think?

Lily Donaldson

This was one of my fave looks of the night as a red maxi dress really stands out if everyone around you is wearing black. If you want to be adventurous without going for something multi-coloured then wear red!

Demi Moore

I don’t know how Demi Moore manages to look so youthful, but I think wearing great clothes does help. I loved her sequin maxi dress as it sparkled when she moved. We saw at the Billboard 100 awards that sequins are really on trend and Demi nailed it. Well done her!

Billboard Awards 2016: Best Dressed

The Billboard Music Awards celebrate the most popular musicians and singers in the Billboard Top 100 charts – they’re a big deal as they’re based on music the public are buying. The event was covered live on the E! channel, which also covers the Oscars, and the Billboard awards are just as important to the music industry.

As the celebs know they’ll be watched by millions around the world on TV as well as having their photo in all the magazines, they make a real effort to stand out. They don’t just dress up, they dress to ensure that they look the best. This year, I think a lot of stars looked stunning, especially the ones who worked the metallic look. It was a sunny day in LA and the stars who went for silver and sequins really shone in the sun.

These are my personal favourite outfits:

Britney Spears

Britney’s back! Britney’s performing nightly at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas and it’s done wonders for her figure. She won the Millenium award, recognising all her work over the past decade and she showed the audience just how much she deserved it by opening the awards with a spectacular pole-dancing performance. After all that, why wouldn’t she show off in a silver dress – she’s proud of what she’s achieved and she looks gorgeous.

Ciara

Ciara also went for a silver and her silver maxi dress attracted everyone’s attention. Singers are used to wearing dramatic costumes on the stage and so they know just what to wear on the red carpet to make people stop and stare. I love it!

Kelly Rowland

Move over Beyonce! Former Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland looked bootylicious in a sequin and white maxi dress. I loved the fishtail effect as it made her curves look incredible. She’s also a former X factor judge and she definitely has the X Factor in this maxi dress.

Ariana Grande

Ariana was one of the few celebs who didn’t go for metallics, but her blue maxi dress was pretty attention grabbing! The halterneck gives her a feminine shape and I like how she’s pulled her hair back to make the most of the neckline. Ariana’s been doing tons of press recently to promote her latest album and she always looks incredible – it’s impressive!

Rihanna

I love Rihanna’s attitude. She wears exactly what she wants, regardless of any dress code. She knows what her best assets are – her super long legs – and so she often dresses to show them off just like she did in this mini dress. I don’t blame her because if you know what suits you, you should wear similar things as much as possible. Worn with a smile and attitude, you can get away with anything.

Meghan Trainor

Meghan looked really pretty in a sequin dress. She’s got a great hourglass shape and this long sleeve dress really enhances it. The sequins reflected the cameras flashbulbs and helped her to make a dramatic entrance. That was her turn to take centre stage and she made the most of every single minute of it.

Mila Kunis

Mila attended the event with her man Ashton Kutcher and made the most of it in a strapless mini dress. She must have upstaged some of the singers as this look is worthy of an award even though Mila doesn’t sing. It’s a perfect look for a summer party – you won’t over heat and that means you can dance all night long!

Kate Beckinsale

I loved the British actress’s white maxi dress. It looked chic and elegant, and she looked pretty without it looking like she’d tried too hard. White is the ideal colour for summer as it enhances most skin tones and makes you look more tanned. What do you think?

Who do you think looked the best? I couldn’t believe how many stars wore metallics – it was almost like the Met Ball gala all over again. It’s clearly a popular way to stand out this summer.

How Models And Celebs Party In Jeans

I can’t remember the last time I saw a celeb wearing jeans to a glam showbiz party, but that all changes when a denim company hosts the event. Replay jeans hosted a spectacular party this week and invited lots of celebrity denim fans to put on their finest jeans and join them at Selfridges.

The guest list consisted of Victoria’s Secret models, TV presenters and singers showing that denim appeals to everyone. Also, there is a style of denim to suit everyone – whatever their figure and personality. Here are some examples of what the stars wore and how they wore them with different styles of tops to give us some inspiration about ways to wear jeans for a night-time event. Jeans can be dressy as well as casual!

Look at:

Alessandra Ambrosio

The Victoria’s Secret model looked stunning in black skinny jeans and made them more suitable for a party by working a monochrome look and adding some leather. A biker jacket adds attitude to any outfit! I also liked her pretty black sandals, which contrasted nicely with the rock chick biker jacket. Jeans and heels are the ultimate combination, especially when you’re wearing super tight skinny jeans.

Laura Whitmore

Laura also went for sky-high heels and black skinny jeans, which really lengthened her legs. I liked how she kept things simple in black as it made the overall look very classy. The black blouse looks almost boho, and the whole outfit is very feminine. Laura has a fab dress sense!

Vogue Williams

The Irish TV presenter is proud of her abs and rightly so! There’s no doubting that you’re in a party mood when you wear a crop top and nobody was looking at her black jeans – they were too busy looking at her stomach. The red heels are a nice touch, making the look more playful.

Sarah Jane Crawford

The former Xtra Factor presenter opted for colour, giving us a nod to Spring in a pretty purple top. Notice that it’s a simple block colour rather than multi-colours – this looks more sophisticated. The overall look is feminine but without it looking as if she’s tried too hard. This is a great day to night look for a Spring day – what do you think?

Diana Vickers

The singer showed off that she was every inch a stage performer with dark blue skinny jeans and a contrasting bright gold blazer. It’s bold, but I love how she wears it with confidence by tying it up like a cape. If you’re wearing a blazer with skinny jeans, it looks really flattering if you have one that stops just below the waist as it will make you look slimmer and give you a nice hourglass silhouette.

How do you wear your jeans for a night out?

Cannes Film Festival: Red Carpet Glamour

Every summer, hordes of A’list celebrities descend on the South of France for 10 days of non-stop premieres, parties and lounging on yachts. The Cannes film festival is like the Oscars but it lasts for days instead of one night only.

Last year I went for a week and witnessed the glamour first-hand (you can read that blog post here) and this year looks just as good. The weather’s been fantastic so far, so it’s always good to look at what the celebs are wearing to get inspiration for what we can wear to our summer parties and weddings.

My favourite outfits from Cannes 2016 so far are:

Cheryl Tweedy

Cheryl’s not in any films, but she looked stunning at the premiere of Slack Bay in a multicolour maxi dress. She met her soon-to-be ex-husband in Cannes two years ago and there’s no better revenge than looking fabulous when you know your ex will be watching. I love how she wears her hair up to show off her slender top half in the strapless dress.

Kate Hudson

Kate jetted in for the Chopard / Vanity Fair dinner and stood out in a coral pink maxi dress, which is very similar to the COAST Corwin maxi dress. It’s such a gorgeous spring colour – great for making tans stand out and for cheering you and others up when they look at you. I love Kate’s style!

Victoria Beckham

Victoria was in Cannes for the opening night gala and she looked very chic in a black jumpsuit with her hair in an Audrey Hepburn style updo. As long as you have great heels, a jumpsuit can look just as spectacular as a dress.

Julia Roberts

Julia looked every inch the Hollywood A’lister in a black maxi dress. She’s had years of experience ruling red carpets and it shows. Black never goes out of fashion.

Amal Clooney

Yellow is totally THE colour right now. We saw Fearne Cotton and Alesha Dixon in yellow dresses at this year’s BAFTA TV Awards and now Amal looks beautiful in a yellow maxi dress as she supports her husband at the premiere of his new film Money Monster.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall was in Cannes to promote Magnum ice creams and she hosted a party on a beach so she didn’t need to look as formal as everyone else. She went for South of France daytime glamour in a white jumpsuit with cool cats-eye sunglasses.

Bella Hadid

Gigi Hadid’s younger sister looked gorgeous in a beige and silver maxi dress. Cannes is the place to show off jewellery and diamonds and Bella has a head start as even her dress is sparkly. Bella’s usually competing with her older sister, but in this dress she’s in a league of her own and it’s a great way to get noticed.

Blake Lively

Blake stars in the opening night’s film – Cafe Society – so she was under great pressure to dazzle and entertain everyone with her outfit. She did just that in a silver dress, which highlights her tanned skin and makes her look a million dollars. This photo makes me want a silver dress.

Jessica Chastain

The Mad Men actress was the third actress to wear silver – there must be a trend! However, while the other two were fitted, Jessica’s maxi dress was floaty and feminine and make her look like a Princess. If you’re not confident about flaunting your figure yet, a floaty maxi will make you look amazing so you feel more attractive when you’re wearing it.

Who do you think looked the best?
