Red Carpet | Nicole Kidman Takes the Plunge in Giorgio Armani

When Nicole Kidman arrived to Cannes in head-to-toe Dior, I thought it couldn’t get any better than this; but surprise, surprise, it did! First she wowed us in a sexy Alexander McQueen and then she slipped into a glamorous Dior frock that made her look poised and polished for the premiere of The Great Gatsby.

The Cannes closing ceremony was no different; on her last night serving as a festival judge, Nicole turned to her friend Giorgio Armani who designed this stunning bustier white silk gown. The stunning creation featured silver detailing and a sexy plunging V neckline with swarovski crystal bow detailing across the bodice.

Equally glamorous was Nicole’s hair; the Aussie actress wore her hair in a messy updo with fun braid details here and there. She completed her look with sexy fake lashes, red lips, and stunning jewels from Harry Winston!

Red Carpet | Supermodels Add Sexy Glamour to Cannes

Why are supermodels attending movie premieres at a film festival? Who knows… Did they bring a whole lot of sexy to the red carpet? They sure DID!

Not that I’m complaining about their presence, on the contrary, it’s pretty tough to put a model in a designer dress and not expect her to look stunning. It’s safe to say that some of the most famous faces in modeling have turned the Cannes red carpet into their very own catwalk!

Kicking it off with every guy’s favorite, Irina Shayk wore this black cutout and very sheer Roberto Cavalli dress (I guess you can call it a dress). The Russian beauty kept oh so very little to the imagination and even avoided a few wardrobe malfunctions.

Erin Heatherton was a bit more discrete on the red carpet, appearing twice so far wearing gowns by Roberto Cavalli. Just last night, the Victoria’s Secret Angel chose a white lace number by the Italian designer for a bash on his yacht.

For the premiere of The Great Gatsby, British model Cara Delevingne wore a plunging black dress by Burberry with sheer panels of lace. Red lips, a smokey eye, and sparkling diamonds completed her look.

Doutzen Kroes is another model currently attending the Cannes Film Festival. For her first appearance, the Dutch beauty chose a blush pink gown by Versace that featured a plunging neckline and a high thigh slit. For her next walk down the red carpet, Doutzen wore a jaw dropping white dress by Calvin Klein, complete with a slit up to there and that put her back on full display.

I saved the best for last, and the best is non other than Alessandra Ambrosio. The Brazilian model has been seen all over Cannes tanning, enjoying the sites, and having lunch with friends in comfy outfits. However, when it was time to hit the festival, the model brought the glam! For the De Grisogono party, Alessandra wore a stunning yellow gown by Elie Saab and accessorized with a matching belt and sandals. To attend Roberto Cavalli’s boat party, she chose a royal blue gown by the designer that featured a lacey sheer back. Back on the red carpet, the model looked like she was dripping in silver in another Roberto Cavalli metallic creation that covered her frame, but showed off her sexy physique.

Spotted | Nicole Kidman Lights Up Cannes!

Looks like Nicole Kidman is finally getting her face back! Yep, seems this Aussie actress is shying away from her previously much loved botox that made her look like a Stepford wife, and I’m loving the results already. Only 48 hours into the Cannes Film Festival and Kidman is undoubtedly the belle of the ball in not one, but four stunning outfits!

For her glamorous arrival in the southern French city, Nicole chose a navy sparkle dress and wrap ankle strap pointed pumps- both by Dior. Kidman dazzled the crowds with her simple straight hair and million dollar smile-yes she can smile again :D

Later in the day, Nicole- who is serving as a judge at this year’s festival- appeared at a photo-op with her fellow judges in a beautiful LBD by Alexander McQueen. The dress featured a seductive low cut neckline and romantic bell sleeves. The actress completed her look with mauve Jimmy Choos- a brand she is sure to be wearing more often since she was just named its new face!

For the screening of The Great Gatsby, Kidman slipped into a floral gown by Dior. She matched her strapless dress with patent pink pumps and had her hair pulled up in a glamorous updo.

Favs | The Great Gatsby: Hunky Actors, Tiffany Sparklers, & A LOT of Prada

After having its release date pushed back several times, The Great Gatsby has finally landed in theaters all over the world. Based on Scott Fitzgerald’s book, the movie tells the story of Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) – a mid westerner who moves to New York and is introduced to the lavish world of his neighbor Jay Gatsby, played by (the still very dreamy) Leonardo DiCaprio. Set in 1922, Gatsby is a mysterious party-throwing millionaire who falls for Carraway’s married cousin, Daisy Buchanan, played by Carey Mulligan.

The movie had its world premiere in New York last week, but its long awaited moment came last night when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

Why should fashion lovers care about this movie? Two reasons! One is fancy jewelry, and two is the luxurious designer wardrobe.

Legendary New York based jewelers Tiffany & Co designed flawless pieces for the movie made from platinum, pearls , and diamonds. Tiffany was chosen because its diamonds portrayed the epitome of American glamour during the jazz age and positively defined it in the 20s. The most notable item is the Savoy headpiece (worn by Carey Mulligan throughout the movie) made from freshwater cultured pearls and round brilliant diamonds, weighing in at a whopping 25 carats! Want to own it? Well you can if you’ve got $200,000 to spare by simply clicking  here.

As for the wardrobe, director Baz Lurhman approached Miuccia Prada to design over 40 outfits with the help of the movie’s costume designer Catherine Martin. The pair selected a few classic Prada designs and modified them to fit the 20s. The result was stunning gowns that were featured in most of the Great Gatsby party scenes!

I am beyond excited to watch this movie; aside from the jewels and the glamour, Leonardo DiCaprio’s movies are rarely a disappointment to his fans. The Great Gatsby is now showing at Lebanon’s Grand Cinemas theaters.
