The Best Fashion Moments at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival

My favorite part about the fashion we see at Cannes every year is that no one plays it safe–everyone wants to stand out. We saw Laetitia Casta in Christian Dior Couture, Nicole Kidman in Armani Privé, Suki Waterhouse in Peter Pilotto, Lara Stone in Calvin Klein Collection, Rosie Huntington-Whitely in Victoria Beckham… Leading ladies and supermodels who all stunned on the red carpet.

Blake Lively and Cate Blanchett were my winners this year, Blake in Chanel Couture, Giambattista Valli Couture, and Gucci Première, effortlessly switching her look from runway to mini to very, very maxi. Cate, long a red carpet veteran, pulled off a bright Givenchy, then switched things up in matching Armani tuxedos with Emily Blunt.

Best Dressed 2014 - My Top 10 - with Jessica Chastain at no. 1 in a one-shoulder royal blue gown for the second year in a row; copper red hair + royal blue fabric must be a winning formula :) Who were your favourites this year?

Festival de Cannes 2014

Spotlight: Blake Lively

The 26-year-old actress attends the 2014 Cannes Film Festival while supporting her husband Ryan Reynolds, who is promoting his new film The Captive. Blake stepped out in two Gucci Première gowns and a Chanel piece from the house’s Spring/Summer 2014 Haute Couture collection.

I have to say she has never looked better and has slayed Cannes every day.

Finding your perfect fragrance is like finding your soul mate, so searching for someone else’s can feel like a heady black hole. Not only is it time-consuming, but it can also really stink, which is why we love fragrance samplers. Think of them like speed dating: they’re a fun, low-commitment way to select that very special scent (sans the awkward pick-up lines) and try out potential perfume personas. Try misting on a different bestseller before each rendezvous. With one spray, you can transform from the shy sweetheart on your first date to the sultry seductress on your second, and keep him guessing from there. Plus, once you pick your favorite, exchange the included voucher for a larger size of it. Here are three perfumed present possibilities for you and all your Valentines. RENEE TRILIVAS
