The Great Gatsby effect was in full flow on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, with opulent party dresses showcasing vintage style lace and glamorous beaded bodices (expect to see lots of hair gems, and beaded collars and capes this autumn).
- Aishwarya Rai wearing Elie Saab s/s13 Couture
- Freida Pinto wearing a grey Sanchita gown
- Zoe Saldana in Valentino
At the other end of the spectrum, stars embraced edgy design and structures with dresses featuring cut-out detailing, graphic monochrome and a rebel edge (expect lots of zips, chains, vinyl, leather and studs next season).
- Marion Cotillard wearing an Antonio Berardi teal tunic
- Milla Jovovich wearing a blue Prada dress
- Nicole Kidman in Calvin Klein
Jane Fonda continued to fly the flag for colour (the ageless actress wowed the crowds at the 2013 Oscars in a canary yellow Atelier Versace long-sleeve gown) and rocked two bright and beautiful dresses, first stepping out in floor length hot pink (a custom-made, off-the-shoulder ruched Badgley Mischka jersey gown), closely followed by cool aqua (a body-skimming Versace dress) – very Côte d’Azur.
