Cannes 2011 - Best Dressed

It's official, May is my new favourite month for fabulous red carpet fashion. After some beautiful looks at the Met Gala - Alexander McQueen event, we've now had the Cannes Film Festival 2011 red carpet to keep us entertained and drooling over dresses.

Cannes is, to me, all about the mega stars (no Z listers in site). It's evokes stylish bygone eras, conjouring images of Liz Taylor and Brigette Bardott leaving fans and journalists begging for more at press calls and on the red carpet. Last year, Cate Blanchett captured my heart (doesn't she always?!) in lady-like Armani Prive suits by day and regal, red carpet looks from McQueen at night.

Some stars were on their top game at Cannes 2011. Rachel McAdams wowed in very different looks, pure and pretty in white, to vampish and sultry in red lace.

Fan Bingbing has really carved out a solid reputation as a Red Carpet Queen, and in a series of regal gowns she owned the red carpet, as has Li Bing Bing, who also looked like a poised princess on the red carpet.

Cannes judge, Uma Thurman, delivered one gorgeous look after another during the 2 week festival, with her most successful being the royal blue, body skimming, button-back dress.

Another actress who never fails to impress on the red carpet is Zoe Saldana, who always brings her best pose and 'gives good face'. Her red and white Armani Prive stripe dress gave me palpitations - I LOVE it.
