Paz Vega is a vision in Stéphane Rolland on Day 3 of the Cannes Film Festival

Paz Vega is a vision in Stéphane Rolland on Day 3 of the Cannes Film Festival

At the Cannes film festival, the L’Oreal girls have ruled the red carpet with glitz and flambouyant glamour for years and rightfully so seeing as L’Oreal is the official sponsor of the film festival. Paz Vega, who reportedly replaced fellow Spaniard Penelope Cruz as the face of L’Oreal Spain last year definitely got off on the right foot opting for a rather couture-ish black and white cut-out cleavage Stéphane Rolland gown. Fashionwidget’s pick for best dressed on Day 3 means yet another feather in the L’Oreal fashion cap at Cannes.

FYI: Actress Fan Bingbing is the face of L’Oreal China.

Yes, it’s great news that Sonam has departed India for Cannes. I hear she have her big red carpet walk at the closing ceremony. I hope she hits a few parties before then

Indian Fashion Police

I rejoice on hearing the news that Sonam Kapoor has left for Cannes, I truly look forward to what history this pretty lady will create on the red carpet. IFP loved her first appearance at Cannes last year and definitely her red carpet walk will be the most anticipated one for Indian fashionistas. Meanwhile, our very own star in Hollywood Freida Pinto is making waves with her style at Cannes 2012. Let’s check out her summer look on Day 3 which we loved……..

Shutterbugs spotted Freida at the photocall for ‘Desert Dancer’ held in Cannes. Freida wore a ‘Salvatore Ferragamo’ Resort 2012 outfit looking every bit like a celeb. The halter top was paired skirt in geometric print…..the outfit was combined with two-tone strappy sandals. For someone as young as her, I feel she could carry this summer outfit with alot of ease. Her sun-kissed look was kept simple with…

Right now, the title of best dressed at Cannes 2012 is Fan Bingbing’s to lose. From Elie Saab to Christopher Bu and now Valentino, she hasn’t yet met a design that upstaged her signature dramatic flare. With Cannes veteran fashion phenom Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan (rumour has it she’ll be there next week) painfully absent in the initial days of this year’s festival, Fashionwidget has found a new and welcome fashion favourite for the time being.

She certainly does evening wear well, not necessarily the big ball gown types but the cute little evening dresses, little black dresses, cocktail dresses and such. She is such a petite lady, so of course it would make sense that simple and precise looks would work best for her. So far at Cannes this year, this is my favourite look Eva has put forward for fashion. Her red carpet dresses from Day 1 and 2 were lukewarm but this right here is red hot! Well done, Eva.

Fashionwidget is deeply saddened this morning to learn of the passing of our beloved disco queen, Donna Summer who according to the associated press died yesterday of complications from battling lung cancer. Our thoughts and prayers are with her immediate family and friends at this difficult time. We mourn her loss alongside all fans of the acclaimed singer whose award-winning and chart-topping career spanned well over thirty years. Rest in peace, Donna.

Cannes Film Festival 2012 Day 2 Continues with more Couture Looks

Cannes Film Festival 2012 Day 2 Continues with more Couture Looks

Oscar-winning French actress Marion Cotillard in Christian Dior Couture at the Cannes Premiere of ‘Rust and Bone’ walked the red carpet with a slew of people, it was nearly impossible to get a fashion shot. Thanks to the folks at BG for managing to snap this one of her alone in her dreamy gown. She looked phenomenal and was certainly one of (if not) the best dressed celebrity there.

Today’s Premiere Diva: Fan Bingbing wows the crowd in Elie Saab Couture

Today's Premiere Diva: Fan Bingbing wows the crowd in Elie Saab Couture

As an actress, drama is an everyday thing for Fan Bingbing. That is exactly what she contributes to fashion and that is what I love about her red carpet appearances. Seen here at the ‘Rust & Bone’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Day 2 in Elie Saab Couture lacy cape splendor & dramatic flare to boot, what more could a fashion enthusiast wish for?

Freida Pinto in Atelier Versace on Day 2 of Cannes 2012

Freida Pinto in Atelier Versace on Day 2 of Cannes 2012

My panel insist that most of the shots of Ms. Pinto from the ‘Rust & Bone’ premiere at Cannes last evening were taken of the actress in mid-stride. I have my reservations for that leg awkwardly sticking out like that a la Angelina Jolie at this year’s Oscars but let’s talk about how amazing Freida looks in this lime-yellow thigh-high slit dress instead. How wonderfully does the bright fabric off-set her naturally sun-kissed complexion? I don’t care much for the shoes, the clutch (which looks like Jimmy Choo) is awesome and considering how stunning she looked in a noir Versace (her second choice of attire from Day 1) it’s no wonder she opted for the same designer on Day 2. The less said about her Michael Angel, the better.

Freida Pinto Redeems herself in Versace

Freida Pinto Redeems herself in Versace

After a less than flattering red carpet debut in a flowery Michael Angel number on Day 1 of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Ms. Pinto was spotted in a sequin noir Versace thigh-high-slit dress at an after-party later that night. I would have preffered if she played up this look with lighter hued shoes and clutch but she looks stunning nevertheless.
