Marion Cotillard looked stunning on the red carpet in a blue and white Dior Haute Couture silk gown at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. I love how the central ruffle of the bottom part of the gown ended just high enough so that we could catch a glimpse of her classic black pumps. Her make-up and sleek hairstyle complemented her sophisticated look…. This is the french style at its best… J’adore!
The nineteenth annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala which was held during the Cannes film festival included a full-scale fashion show (Cannes’ first ever!) on Thursday the 24th and was curated by none other than ex-French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld.
The whole thing was, of course, for a good cause. Roitfeld went for an all black dress theme which was trèschic and included beautiful creations from Balenciaga, Roberto Cavalli, Chanel, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and Versace….. They were all auctioned off as a single lot!!!
What can I say….. Black is ALWAYS the new Black!!!
