Cannes Film Festival 2011 – How to Wear Red on the Red Carpet

CANNES DO

CANNES DO

CANNES NOT

WHO: Rosario Dawson, Linda Cardellini  and a random guest.

WHAT: ‘This Must Be The Place’ and “Hara-Kiri-Death Of A Samurai” premieres

WHEN: May 19th 2011

WHERE: Cannes, France

DO…endeavour to keep it simple, dress to flatter your figure, wear a body shaper to smooth out your curves if you are wearing a form-fitting gown and always pick a gown with a flattering silhouette rather than opting to follow the latest trend(s).

DON’Tbe a slave to fashion by trying to hard to look like a fashionista, wear a statement gown matching with a statement purse, statement shoes and statement jewelry chances are you would be making too much of a statement.

Fashionwidget Verdict: Rosario and Linda A+, Random guest with star logo on her dress…F minus.
