Hit: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Eight hours' sleep, lots of water and maybe a few Pilates sessions – oh and cutting out carbs a few days before a big event.

That's the normal reply from a celeb when asked the secret of their stunning looks.

And it's annoying. Really, really annoying.

After all, if looking good was easy, we'd all be on the cover of a magazine!

So we're feeling really quite well disposed towards model-slash-actress Rosie who has admitted that she has not one, not two, but three personal trainers so that she never has an excuse to skip a workout whether she's in London, New York or LA.

The no-gain look obviously comes with pain, but it's paying off for Rosie.

The Transformers star may be at Cannes, but she knows just how to work the Hollywood silver siren look in this seriously dramatic Gucci gown with its embellished beading.

You'd never know her favourite dessert is bread-and-butter pudding!

MISS: AMANDA SEYFRIED

The former Mean Girl has certainly shed the last vestiges of her high-school-days and is all grown-up.

Now this isn't the worst look we've ever seen.

But there's something not quite right about it either.

Amanda has a fab figure – and clearly isn't afraid to show it (almost) all off – but the combination of her Givenchy dress with its sheer voluminous embellished top, ripped sleeves and short pleats, teamed with sheer tights and open-toed sandals is ill-conceived and, unfortunately, ill-flattering.

We're sad to say it, but she gets a definite F on her report card.
