Cannes Film Festival- Best Looks So Far

Can someone say Delevingne? If there was ever a perfect dress I could personally imagine, I feel like Cara wore it at Cannes this year.

A strikingly beautiful black lace dress by Burberry with a plunge neck and sheer sleeves. Covered in diamonds, Cara certainly knows how to make an entrance and the pose says it all for me. This look is flawless but what are those shoes?

Emma Watson in a Chanel Couture floor-length gown. This is gorgeous on Emma with the sequinned bodice and the smooth, white skirt.

OK, so I'm not sure if Sofia Coppola was the best dressed exactly but I had to include her as she's my favourite director. Dressed in S/S 2013 Louis Vuitton, Sofia keeps it simple with this LBD.
Everything about Frieda Pinto's look is exquisite  The dress is custom by an Indian designer, Sanchita  and her shoes and bag are by Jimmy Choo. Love the embroidery on the top, the high slit, the all-over gold and the strappiness of the heel. Perfect for Cannes.

Bags I Want: Céline Tote Bags

If there's one bag right now that I keep seeing in and around the fashion sphere, it's these gorgeous totes from Céline.

I believe they come in mini, micro and macro sizes to fit the buyer's needs.

I think the structure of these is absolutely gorgeous and how chic they do they look?

Available in 5 different variations, the tan, patent black and cream/black are my favourites.

To get a closer look, check out missglamorazzi's "What's In My Purse?" video on YouTube. Fell in love with the handbag from heaven afterwards.

Christian Dior Resort 2014

Raf Simons is continually proving to the world that he is going to lead Dior into a sanctuary of timeless, yet modern clothing which clientèle won't be able to resist.

The show was held in Monaco, where Grace Kelly celebrated her engagement in a Dior gown. I suppose Simons wanted to pay homage to the brand.

The Resort collection for 2014 felt unrestricted from previous collections at Dior. It was fragmented and unclear at times. Simons certainly took a risk using lace, a material he does not usually work with.

It seems that there's a sort of distorted romance amongst this collection, one of which screams happily married with a white picket fence and the other is undefinable or certainly more "realistic", if you will.

As you browse the collection, pops of colours flash before your eyes, almost as if Simons is tempting us with bursts of neons until we get the full colour maintained on one piece.

For a resort collection, it really works with the summery vibe and light materials.

An indigo suit with a rounded sillouhete for the blazer. Nicely shaped with the lace underlay. 

Something vibrant and bright. A rippled, fuchsia jacket which doubles as a dress.  The tidy hair and  bright lip do this look wonders.

A hard-hitting neon yellow in a small quantity works wonderfully with otherwise elegant materials of silver and white. The gold cuff compliments the shade of yellow.

Simons taking monochrome with a twist here. It's almost as if the look is disrupted with the pink  section. You can certainly imagine a "normal" Dior dress in a shade of that dusty pink trailing down, yet we are only given a snippet. A metaphoric look, perhaps? 

One of my favourite looks of the collection. The rounded sunglasses are stunning and compliment the "suave and sophisticated  look of this outfit well. I adore the tightness of the waist and then the free flowing material at the bottom. The zip is perfect and adds a slight sense of sportiness to an otherwise simple look.

Pretty and delicate in white. A look to be expected on the likes of Kate Middleton.  The bubble skirt  adds a nice contrast to the expected torso. 

Beachy and mermaid-like. Shades of aqua and mint green compliment each other with this shiny material.  The luminescent dress is stunning and daring at the same time. 

The staple dress of the collection, I'd say. No two sides are the same. Simons goes for daring, sheer lace with a romantic edge on the right along with an edgy, colourful and striped look on the left. Definitely out of the ordinary but perfect for portraying what Simons stands for.
