Style Jury at Cannes Film Festival
From the good, the bad and the ugly...Freya Drohan gives her style verdicts from the Cannes Film Fesitval
As always, day two of Cannes saw photo calls, premieres and parties.
Top marks go to Blake Lively and Zoe Saldana who proved their impeccable style credentials on multiple occasions.
For the premiere of ‘Mr Turner’, Zoe opted for a black gown from Jason Wu’s Fall 2014 collection. The column dress, featured a cowl neck and emerald green embroidery, clung elegantly to Zoe’s slim figure. Black nails and a messy chignon complimented the dark and interesting look.
Earlier yesterday, Zoe was papped leaving her hotel in a Valentino Pre-Fall 2014 mini dress. The monochrome dress, which epitomises Zoe’s signature demure style, featured an over-sized black organza bow.
Blake ensured she was present on Best Dressed lists all over the world this morning when she stepped out in a Chanel Spring 2014 Couture dress. The semi-sheer organza dress, in tricky ankle-length, was accentuated by delicate sequins and paillettes. Blake looked radiant, accessorising the incredibly detailed dress with Lorraine Schwartz knuckle duster rings, Sophia Webster court shoes and a silk wrap.
Like Zoe, Blake is pulling out all the stops when it comes to her on-trend Cannes wardrobe. For a TV appearance yesterday, Blake’s statuesque frame was the perfect model for a Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture embellished mini dress. With legs that appear to go on for days, barely-there Stuart Weitzman sandals helped the illusion.
One of the world’s highest earning models, Liya Kebede is admired for her classic and feminine style. Liya brought a touch of edgy sparkle to the red carpet with this blue and black Roberto Cavalli mini dress and Jimmy Choo sandals.
For the Trophée Chopard event, Cate Blanchett looked regal in a grey Valentino Pre-Fall 2014 gown. In the fitted, embellished bodice, a full tulle skirt and feathered cap sleeves, Cate (45) looked like an ethereal queen.
At the Calvin Klein celebration of Women in Film event, Rooney Mara wore a custom white dress by the American designer. The always understated Rooney (29) is rarely seen in anything outside the neutral palette. She knows what works for her. Rooney kept things interesting with this fitted skirt and bodice combination, complete with fringe detailing around the waist.
