Glamour. Gowns. Yachts. Veuve Clicquot Champagne. Beautiful People. If you've already guessed it, I'm talking about the Cannes Film Festival that runs from May 16th-27 and previews new films and documentaries from around the world. It is also the most prestigious and publicized film festival which also happens to be invitation only. If you're lucky enough to have your film nominated you're jet setting off to the sunny and chic south of France to hang with the toast of Hollywood.
So many parties and events surround the actual film festival so a girl needs a lot of different options from cocktail attire to gowns because in Cannes there's no such thing as recycling the same outfit. Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria is in Cannes on behalf of Loreal and rumor has it she brought thirty something gowns! Although the festival still has a few days left, I have been scouring over the photos to see who has been the most consistent in fabulous fashion choices and I'd have to say actress Naomi Watts has nailed it. As seen on instyle.com Naomi mixed up each outfit to keep it fresh and on trend but also within the same color palette.
Of course no fashion write-up is complete without addressing the key component to finalizing any cohesive look, the hair and makeup! From the slick back seen at the Met Ball, to soft curls and the return of the wine stained lip these ladies looked fantastic. As seen on vogue.com.uk, Indie singer Lana del Rey looked absolutely exquisite with large soft barrel curls and Jennifer Connelly looked enchanting with a bare décolletage and accessory of a deep wine stained lip. Re-create part of these hair looks with T3's Single Pass Whirl Curling Wand and the Single Pass 1" Straightening Iron to de-frizz hair before doing the sleek and smooth pull back. For those looking for Jennifer's lip shade you cannot go wrong with Jouer's Hydrating Lipstick in Phoebe.
