I attended the Cannes Film Festival to get some gossip and find out about films, but it was hard to concentrate when all the celebrities were dressed up to the max. I had lots of questions lined up to ask them but when I saw the stars in the flesh it took me at leasts a few seconds to compose my thoughts and calm the green eyed monster. I was so jealous of some of the celebrities dresses!
I studied every outfit in minute detail as it was the ideal place to get celeb fashion inspiration. I did notice there was a large proportion of red dresses this year. Just like red traffic lights stop cars, red dresses stop photographers and other party goers in their tracks. I picked my top 5 red dresses worn in Cannes so you can see what I mean.
(1) and (2) Michelle Rodriguez and Rita Ora (above)
Rita and Michelle attended the Amfar gala in Cannes wearing strapless red dresses. Rita sang at the event and Michelle danced to the performance and it was like they were doubles (except for their hair colouring). The similar shiny strapless effect reminds me of the Rochelle Humes bandeau bodycon fishtail dress from Very
(3) Babara Palvin
Barbara has the most eligible men in music fighting over her. She’s dated Niall from One Direction and she’s been spotted with Ed Sheeran. I’m not that surprised as she knows how to make the most of her curves. The lace detail on the red dress catches the eye even more, just like the Lipsy lace applique maxi dress.
(4) Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman is directing her first film this year, rather than acting so she had to look smart as well as stylish. A red dress can be sophisticated as well as showy, as Natalie proves.
(5) Doutzen Kroes
Doutzen is a Victoria’s Secret model so in her down-time she wears more clothes than she does for her lingerie modelling job! Covering your body but showing your shoulders looks flirty and feminine. The neck and shoulderline of Doutzen’s dress reminded me of theForever Unique Allyah bandeau maxi dress at Very.
I like to think that I followed the celebrities’ style as I also wore a dark orange / red in Cannes to the Amfar party.
The exact dress I’m wearing is the Definitions one shoulder maxi dress. What do you think?
We can’t control the weather this summer, but we can make it red hot with what we wear!
