Cannes Film Festival Best Looks – WWD



Cannes is about high fashion, high glamour and high star power. Here, the carpet’s most memorable moments.

Madonna: A

It’s 1991 and Madonna rules pop culture. A look that has become fashion history, this is yet another successful collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier. She showed up with a new hair color and in more or less her skivvies, effectively starting the now well-known trend at Cannes of overtly provocative dressing on the red carpet.

Sharon Stone: A-

This was a few years after her star-making turn in “Basic Instinct,” but this play of peek-a-boo dressing feels like a smart wink to her character in the movie. The champagne-colored Valentino gown plays well with her complexion, and strikes just the right notes of elegance and cheekiness.

Angelina Jolie: B

The animated film boasts Jack Black as the voice of Po the panda, who works in his family's noodle shop and dreams of becoming a kung-fu master. His dream becomes a reality when, unexpectedly, he must fulfill an ancient prophecy and study the skills with his idols, the Furious Five. Po needs all the wisdom, strength and ability he can muster to protect his people from an evil snow leopard. The film also features the voices of Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu and Ian McShane.

This is not her regular vampy black style, but choosing this Mother Earth goddess look worked here as she showcased her pregnancy on the red carpet. A flower crown would not feel out of place here.

Eva Herzigova: A-

Nothing is more iconic than taking over the red carpet in an S&M leather outfit — whip included — for an impromptu Helmut Newton fashion shoot. This moment made Herzigova a staple of the Cannes red carpet for years to come. When it comes to S&M, this outfit is right on point.

Elizabeth Taylor: A

Before Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Taylor ruled the red carpet for decades. This red, figure-hugging gown with puffy sleeves is the perfect definition of Eighties style. And when you add her personal collection of megawatt jewelry — and perennially tanned George Harrison as her escort — the result becomes iconic.

Linda Evangelista: A-

Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett, Karen Allen, Shia LaBeouf, Ray Winstone, John Hurt and Jim Broadbent. The story follows archaeologist Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones when he is called back into action when he becomes entangled in a Soviet plot to uncover the secret behind mysterious artifacts known as the Crystal Skulls.

There’s a long history of models bringing high-fashion glamour to the red carpet at Cannes, and nothing screams high glamour like Linda Evangelista in a gold sequined toga dress by Lanvin. The original supermodel sleek hair and smoky eye are instant classics.

Rihanna: A

This feels very third wedding: you know it might not work out, but you’re just there for the party and the canapés. The white raver sunglasses and the way she carries herself turn this into a major fashion moment.

Nicole Kidman: C

This is a good example of when bad clothes happen to good people. The white tutu ballgown skirt is best left to Björk’s swan dress. Here, it reads more like a failed effort at a “Black Swan” sequel.

Victoria Beckham’s Cotswolds kitchen is even more gorgeous than you’d imagine




Chloe Best

Victoria Beckham‘s kitchen became her home office on Wednesday, as she worked on her latest fashion collection at her house in the Cotswolds. The former Spice Girls star, who is isolating at her second home with her husband David and their children Romeo, Cruz and Harper, shared a look at her relatable work setup on Instagram – and became the envy of her fans in the process.

“My warm weather working from home wardrobe! Shorts & slippers. The dream,” Victoria captioned the photo, which shows her perched at her kitchen island on a wooden stool while wearing a pair of tiny denim shorts and a sweatshirt.

It definitely does appear like a dreamy kitchen setup, with stone flooring, exposed brick walls and a bottle green wooden island unit. Copper saucepans hang overhead, while a chandelier adds the ultimate luxurious finishing touch.


The rustic kitchen also has a pizza oven

A previous photo shared by Victoria has revealed another glimpse at the room, showing a large wood-fired pizza oven on one side, with chopped logs stacked underneath ready to cook. The aesthetic of the room ties in with the rustic feel throughout the rest of the house, which is a barn conversion located close to the celebrity haunt of Soho Farmhouse.

The property boasts beautiful gardens too, where the family can also enjoy barbecues together in the summer, play tennis on their own tennis court, and unwind in their log cabin that houses a sauna and steam room. There is even a plunge pool on the lawn to cool down afterwards. What more could they want?!
