Who is a style queen and who should be taken away by the fashion police.

Best dressed: Evangeline Lilly

The wait is almost over for its army of fans, who are bound to have fingers and toes crossed that all will be revealed on Sunday when the final ever episode of Lost is broadcast in the US. But forget plane crashes, conspiracy theories and those pesky polar bears, we know the real mystery of the cult TV series.

For the last five years, we've been puzzling over how Evangeline Lilly managed to endure her uniform of sweat-stained clothes week after week. The answer? She's jumped at every opportunity off set to get as dressed up as possible. So of course she's not going to be able to resist the siren call of the red carpet at Cannes.

And the 30-year-old actress might just have an ulterior motive in mind. After all, her day job is over now, and it can't hurt to remind casting agents just how good she can look in Valentino.

As for that French kiss with a pink-clad Mademoiselle on the Croisette, well, maybe she's just demonstrating her method acting abilities to anyone who's interested.

Worst dressed: Juliette Binoche

Okay, that's it, we're going to have to lie down in a darkened room to recover.

It's one thing to laugh at some Z-list wannabe's perfectly accessorised lesson in what not to wear on the red carpet. It's quite something else to have to report the truly tragic news that Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche has, gulp, lost her style.

There are unconfirmed reports that Lost actress Evangeline Lilly found it looking all lonesome by the yachts at Cannes harbour; we'll keep you updated on these stunning developments. In the meantime, the (former) fashion icon has been forced to wear a gold lamé dress from Lanvin's spring collection that makes her resemble one of those unloved Quality Street sweets. Sometimes, it's a cruel, cruel world.
