Cannes I Go Next Year?

Some of the best looks emerge in the idyllic south of France every spring (Rachel McAdams's red Marchesa stunner, Elizabeth Olsen's head-to-toe homage to the flapper, Natalie Portman's white, structured confection), and this year's Festival de Cannes was no exception. With the help of designers like Dior and Calvin Klein, stars such as Marion Cotillard, Diane Kruger, and Jessica Chastain exhibited the annual fest's perennial penchant for all things summery and chic. And it appears that the #1 rule of Cannes is to dress to the nines but look utterly unperturbed doing so. Still one to gush over the mere idea of wearing lipstick and an $80 dress, it's no wonder I haven't received my invitation yet.

Still on my mind...

Marion Cotillard's gleaming golden belt and lemon heels

Jessica Chastain's neon coral

Kirsten Dunst's soft blue pleats

Naomi Watts's nude minimalism

Paz Vega's ankle-grazing tea length

Freida Pinto's pastel peplum and jeweled camo print

Salma Hayek's navy, sequins, and, er...cleavage

Marion's voluminous bun (wrapped in diamonds, no less)

Jessica's earring bouquets

...and her simple twists

The ubiquitous high slit (on Freida Pinto & Shailene Woodley)

Freida's retro, chevron two-piecer

Kristen Stewart's printed pants

And of course, everything Diane Kruger wore...

Lace-up + pleats

Seafoam + one-shoulder

Leather + studs

All-out glam + Old Hollywood hair

Lace + purple bloom

Embroidery + peplum (+ straight-off-the-runway Chanel)

Bold print + pointy toes

Feathers + killer heels

Checks + volume

Just chillin' (this is what she looks like just chillin', in case you were wondering)
