Best Dressed Looks from Cannes 2015

Fashion and the Cannes Film Festival red carpets certainly go hand in hand. These gorgeous gowns are right up there with the likes of other major red carpets we see throughout a given year — Oscars, Grammys, Met Ball, etc. So here are my top picks from the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival. ENJOY!!


Eva Longoria

There are almost no words to express how stunning Eva looks in this gray lace sheer-paneled Gabriela Cadena gown, which features a plunging neckline and mini train. It’s perfection! She accessorized with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and her gorgeous make-up look was courteous of L’Oreal Paris. Eva was attending the Inside Out premiere.


Diane Kruger


Diane, while attending the premiere of The Sea of Trees, donned a pale blue Prada gown, embellished with crystal appliqués and featuring a long silk scarf that trailed dramatically from her halter neck bodice.She looked magical! Paired with her look are beautiful Harry Winston jewels. And her pulled back wavy hair look was courtesy of Perrine Rougemont.


Emma Stone


Emma was seriously on point with 2 of her Cannes looks. First, she attended the red carpet premiere of Irrational Man, wearing a sleeveless slate Dior Couture gown, covered in lace which included an elaborate train and open back. And to complete her look with some lovely jewelry, she wore a Repossi necklace and rings, and Jennifer Meyer stud earrings.




For this day look, she wore this structured lacy black Oscar de la Renta cocktrail frock, from the Pre-Fall 15 collection. She again wore Repossi, earrings and rings, as well as black Christian Louboutin heels.

Melanie Laurent


Shimmery and glittery all over, and I love it! Melanie looks exquisite in this completely beaded, cap sleeve Zuhair Murad gown with flowing train at the Inside Out premiere.

Rooney Mara


While attending the premiere of Carol, Rooney wore a cream colored, ruffled Rochas gown with a halter neck and key-hole slit. What a classic and ladylike look, great choice for Rooney.


Salma Hayek


I love that Salma added a bold splash of color to the red carpet with this radiant orchid Gucci gown. It had such a great fit and you can’t miss this stunning, plunging neckline. She was too attending the red carpet premiere of Carol.


Michelle Rodriguez

Michelle was another gorgeous gal for me with 2 amazing looks. While attending the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere, the actress sparkled in a flesh-toned Zuhair Murad gown, embellished with intricate designs and lace. She completed her look with deGrisogono jewelry.
For the Irrational Man premiere, Michelle stunned in a short-sleeved black Elie Saab gown, featuring dainty (and sexy!) lace cut-outs. Here, she went with diamond jewelry by Avakian.
Irina Shayk
While attending the Sicario premiere, Irina sizzled in Versace, specifically this high-slit, gold embellished gown.
Naomi Watts
For the opening ceremony of Cannes, La Tête Haute, Naomi went with a powder-blue, cap-sleeved Elie Saab gown from the spring 2015 collection, featuring an embroidered sequin and pearl bodice with a plunging neckline, against a long feathered skirt. Her well coordinated accessories were all from Bulgari, diamond jewelry & a black and white clutch.

At a later event, the Sea of Trees party hosted by Grey Goose, Naomi chose a intriguing tiered Armani Prive look, again wearing Bulgari jewelry.
Andie MacDowell
Andie looked radiant at the Sea of Trees premiere in this white,all over lacy Ralph & Russo gown, complete with a slight train. Her stylist was Michael Angel, with makeup by Stephan Lancien for L’Oreal.
Petra Nemcova
Petra looked red hot while attending the Chopard Gold party, wearing this fiery red Elie Saab gown, with lace cutouts, and of course, Chopard jewelry.
Emily Blunt
Emily was feeling a disco-ball-esque look with this custom silk Stella McCartney gown, and I’m all for it. Paired with her look were statement making, emerald Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie earrings and jewelry. She was attending the Sicario premiere.
And to cap off my list, one more Emily Blunt look, this time simplistically minimalistic in a nude Calvin Klein Collection dress and Sutra jewelry. Here, she was attending the IFP/Euphoria Calvin Klein/Women in Film party.

2015 Oscars — Best Dressed

Lots of sparkle, shimmer, and shine for my Best Dressed list! There are a few more minimalistic looks that caught my eye for the 2015 Oscars, but I was vastly impressed by this year’s red carpet. It was very hard to narrow my list down! So here goes, ENJOY!!

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals   Jennifer Lopez

There is no angle for which this stunning blush-hued, beaded Elie Saab gown does not look great. As always, Elie Saab’s gowns are works of art. This dress has it all, the perfect balance of elegance and sexiness, especially with that plunging neckline!


The star accessorized with a crème Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and 20 carats, $2.5 million worth of Neil Lane diamond and platinum jewelry.

Stylist Lorenzo Martin was on deck for hair, this chic ponytail, with makeup by Mary Phillips, both of whom used L’Oreal products. Phillips provided some great pops of pink, both on the eyes and the lips!


Giuliana Rancic

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Still amazed by how gorgeous Giuliana looks in this daring red Mireille Dagher dress. I’m head over heels about all the intricate details of this gown, the lace, the floral appliques; they are all just great! For the battle of the red looks, Giuliana takes it home for me! Paired with her look are understated diamond pieces from Forevermark jewelry.


And for her overall styling, kudos to her stylist, Monica Rose, hair by Melissa Brown (lovely retro waves), and makeup by Daniel Deleno, the perfectly coordinating bold red lip!

Anna Faris     87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Anna is dazzling in this metallic silver, strapless Zuhair Murad gown. She is shimmering all over thanks to all of the beaded embellishments. And coordinating perfectly with her look, a slate Judith Leiber clutch and diamond Lorraine Schwartz jewels.


87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Jamie Chung

Jamie has found a true designer friend in Yanina Couture. She has continued to look fabulous every time she dons one of the brand’s look. And this nude gown with a navy tulle overlay, splashed with sequin starburst detailing, is top notch. She has paired with her look a beautiful pair of Leticia Linton earrings.


Her styling team deserves some credit here as well, overall styling by Sammy and Judy; gorgeous wavy locks by Kira Nasrat; fresh, natural beauty look from Daniel Marrone, nails by Jay De La Cruz, with the help of Caption Polish.

More specifics — Makeup artist Daniel Marrone gave Jamie Chung matte makeup in warm neutral tones with a classic cat eye, while hair stylist Kira Nasrat created sculpted side-swept waves.

 Jennifer Aniston

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Jen has ditched her go-to black looks for red carpets and I could not be more ecstatic. She looks phenomenal in this beaded nude, strapless gown from Atelier Versace. Coordinating so well with this sexy look are Stuart Weitzman “Nudist” heels, as well as a few subtle Fred Leighton diamond jewelry pieces.


America’s sweetheart let her dress do the talking with natural makeup and thick, full lashes courtesy of Chanel celebrity makeup artist Angela Levin. “We wanted a beige lip look, to really complement her dress, so I applied Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Louise ($36), then topped the lip color with Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Sensuel ($34) and Chanel Glossimer in Unity ($30),” said Levin.

To complement Aniston’s Atelier Versace dress, Living Proof hair pro Chris McMillan went for “very natural, sexy, and glamorous hair. The inspiration was to be comfortable so that she could enjoy her time.” After washing her hair with Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner, McMillan used the brand’s Blowout at the roots. He then blew her hair out with a slight side part before finishing with a bit of Satin Hair Serum to the ends to combat frizz.

Katie Cassidy


How radiant does Katie look in this breathtaking metallic silver Julien MacDonald gown, complete with a flowing train? I can answer, she is brimming with radiance and this is an A+ look if I’ve ever seen one! Her accessories for the evening, all in matching silver hues, Stuart Weitzman heels, a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch,  Jacob & Co diamond ring, and Harry Kotler diamond earrings.

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Anna Kendrick

Anna looks marvelous in this custom peach-hued Thakoon gown. The color is right. The fit is spot on. And the diamond choker, haltered neckline gives this look that extra special touch, making it a knockout! Paired with her look are Norman Silverman diamond jewelry.


Makeup artist Vanessa Scali used Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Pink for that flushed glow, then used Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Smolder from the lashline to crease and underneath the eye, with Beautiful Color Precision Glide Eyeliner in Black Violet on the top lashline, waterline, and outer corner of the lower lashes.


As for that updo, stylist Craig Gangi sprayed Bumble and bumble’s soon-to-launch Surf Infusion (watch this space for more info on that big launch) onto wet hair, then diffused it with a blowdryer. After hair was dry, he used a 1/2-inch curling iron to “eliminate frizz and polish the wave.” He then sectioned the hair and pulled it back into a French twist, pinning it into place and spraying with Does It All Styling Spray for a light hold — as Kendrick had to change her hairstyle for that opening musical number, he didn’t want to use anything too sticky or strong for the red carpet.


Scarlett Johansson

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Green goddess! The actress and new mom looked glam in a plunging Atelier Versace gown with an extravagant collar embroidered with Swarovski crystals. I think this is a great choice of color for not only Scarlett, but also the red carpet. It is a standout look for sure!


Her other sparkling pieces to accentuate the look are emerald jewelry pieces from Piaget.


Gwyneth Paltrow

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

This gown seemed to cause quite a bit of fashionable discussion, but I’m infatuated with it. I think it is a hit all the way! I can’t take my eyes off this custom-made, soft pink, silk-crepe Ralph & Russo gown featuring a shoulder rosette of delicate oversized petals in gazar and organza.


Gwyneth accessorized with Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie rubellite jewelry pieces.

Makeup artist Leslie Lopez wanted to create a smoky eye and nude lip to pair with the statement-making dress. “I used light foundation, only where needed, so that her beautiful skin would still show through. I followed with a little bit of Max Factor Bronzing Powder ($9) towards the temples and cheek bones, and used a pretty pink-hued blush on the apples of the cheeks to give her a healthy glow.” Lopez finished the look with Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Carolina Coast ($9), the “perfect shade to achieve the nude lip look we were going for,” she said.


Reese Witherspoon

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Reese always know how to elegantly embody the definition of simplistic minimalism. She knows she doesn’t need the bells & whistles to stand out on the red carpet. And in this black and white Tom Ford fitted gown, she is the epitome of Red Carpet glam. BTW, love the Bardot style neckline, exquisite!

Huge props to her beauty team, styling by Leslie Fremar; hair, beautiful waves, by Adir Abergel; makeup courtesy of Molly R. Stern, fresh faced glow, slight smoky eye, lovely nude lip.


And finally, to top off Reese’s killer look, Tiffany & Co. diamond jewelry pieces.


Glam stat: Witherspoon added more than $3 million worth of Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Collection diamonds.

Additional beauty specifics — Celebrity makeup artist Molly R. Stern created a radiant, sexy, effortless look on Reese Witherspoon using Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Highlighter & Shader Duet in Intensity One ($77), to define and sculpt Witherspoon’s cheekbones, as well as Laura Mercier’s Faux Lash Mascara ($25) in Black and Brown for “a softer intensity.” To give her body an all-over glow, Stern used St. Tropez’s One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion ($18). For her bright nude lip, Stern used Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Nude Rose as a base and then layered the beauty brand’s Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Peche for a “hint of light brightness.”


Georgina Chapman


My guess, Georgina is rockin’ her own line her, Marchesa. But regardless, she looks amazing in this full-on floral embellished number. It is simply divine!



Brooke Anderson


Brooke looked heavenly in this rose pink silk tulle organza Leanne Marshall strapless gown. Huge fan of Leanne’s work, so I’m always happy to see her unique creations on the red carpet or runway!

Her accessories, gorgeous pieces by XIV Karats. And major credit here to Brooke’s glam team — hair & makeup courtesy of Chroma Studio.


87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Nancy O’Dell

What else could you ask for in a red carpet look? Black is always a winning color choice. The fit here is great. There is drama with the structured shoulder detailing and flowing train. Nancy’s black one-shoulder Gauri and Nainika gown has this and more! Paired perfectly with her look, black Aquazzura heels & statement-making diamond jewelry pieces from XIV Karats.

Blanca Blanco

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

I wasn’t so sure about this look right at first, but to me, it’s wearable art. I love it! There is something so unique about it. It’s bold, daring, and full of drama, which works perfectly for the red carpet. The mix of red hues, black, navy blue, and slight sparkling embellishments, combine together magically to escalate this look.

Rita Ora


Rita looks glamorous and elegant in this fitted black, strapless Marchesa gown, with some lovely touches of floral embellishments and a flowing train. This is A+ red carpet style in my book! Statement making jewelry was provided by Lorraine Schwartz. And Kathy Jeung did an amazing job with Rita’s makeup, natural, clean look!


Additional specifics — Edie Sedgewick vibes with her sculpted platinum pixie, exaggerated lashes, and a perfect nude lip, courtesy of makeup artist Kathy Jeung, who used Rimmel products.

Channing & Jenna Dewan Tatum

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

One of my fave dynamic red carpet duos, such a handsome pair! Channing is looking ever so dapper in his classic black Dolce&Gabbana tux. He’s even thrown in some fun accessories, black Louis Leeman shoes, and Neil Lane studs and cufflinks.


Jenna is just as fabulous, looking ethereal, wearing a Zuhair Murad Couture white dress. I’m all about this look, the super sexy plunging neckline, the belt, the delicate beaded embellishment, it is just all superb! Jenna is too accessorizing quite well, diamond Lorraine Schwartz jewels and metallic silver Lee Savage clutch.


Jenna’s glam squad team did a wonderful job here, Derek Peter Williams for this chic ponytail; Patrick Ta for makeup, love this gorgeous tangerine lip; and Brad Goreski for styling.


87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Miles Teller & Keleigh Sperry

Another dynamic pair, looking great in black & white! Not sure about the designer details on Miles’ classic black tuxe, but he looks very handsome! But WOW! Where has Keleigh been hiding on the red carpets with Miles. I want to see more! She looks angelic and beautiful in this white Lorena Sarbu gown with silver embellished trim at the bodice.

Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Adam & Behati are Armani X 2. Adam looks quite nice in his traditional black Armani tuxe. While Behati went with a bit more drama in this Armani Prive fitted embellished gown. I knew right away it was Armani, definitely memorable and eye-catching! She’s also done a fantastic job pairing with her look, daring jewelry pieces by De Grisogono.


Behati’s overall look is courtesy of Bryce Scarlett for hair, a chic updo and Monika Blunder for makeup, love the bold red lip. Makeup artist Monika Blunder opted for a matte red lip and feather, long lashes—the perfect complement to Prinsloo’s beaded Armani Privé gown.

Luciana & Robert Duvall

87th Academy Awards, Oscars, Arrivals, Los Angeles, America - 22 Feb 2015

Not all about Robert’s suit, it’s okay. But with another gorgeous Elie Saab number on the red carpet, there is no way to ignore it. Yes, very similar to J. Lo’s, but to me, this tangerine gown is special in its own right. The color is a huge difference, and looks great here on Luciana. This is Elie Saab’s style though, so it takes a close eye to note the differences and you can see that here with the sparkly embellishments — the patterns are different in both looks! All in all, both ladies looked heavenly in Elie Saab!


Luciana accessorized with a bit more sparkle, but this time in the way of magnificent Harry Winston diamonds.


87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Ryan Seacrest

So from what I am gathering, Ryan has a menswear line with Macy’s, Seacrest Style. And that is what he is donning for the Oscars. I would tell all the men I know to check this line out as I imagine you could look just as stylish, but likely the price wouldn’t be such a bad deal!

Michael Keaton

And finally, Michael, looking quite handsome in his well fitted, classic black tuxe, courtesy of Ralph Lauren. His black dress shoes are too by Ralph Lauren.

And The 2015 Award Season Marches On…

The Oscars still remain, but in the mix of all the main red carpet Grammys hoopla, there were a few other red carpet events over the past week that are worthy of some Best Dressed nods — BAFTA (British Academy of Film & Television Arts), Grammys performance looks, after party looks, and more! For the Grammys after-party, namely Warner Bros, other partners were Spotify & DeLeon.

Here is my Best Dressed Round-Up list, ENJOY!


Reese Witherspoon

Reese is ravishing in this deep purple Stella McCartney dress, paired perfectly with some elegant Tiffany & Co. jewelry pieces. And with just a peep, she is also matching with dark purple Jimmy Choo heels. (BAFTA)


Laura Haddock


Laura looks ethereal and magical in this ivory Ashi Studio gown, complete with a full ball gown tulle skirt. She is continuing her royal-like treatment with some exquisite diamond De Beers jewelry pieces. Her natural beauty look, soft nude lip, is courtesy of Lancôme UK. And her chic updo, a chignon, is by Chris Williams. (BAFTA)


Elizabeth Banks


While attending the Love & Mercy premiere during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany Elizabeth truly donned a work of art with this stunning burgundy embellished Elie Saab Couture dress. She looks radiant from head to toe, including her statement-making Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.


Giuliana Rancic


Debuting at her 1st Grammy Awards, for pre-coverage on the Red Carpet, Giuliana went with super chic black Steven Khalil gown. I love the details here, the slit, open neckline, sheer detailing on the sleeve — it’s all great!

She coordinated with her look, classic black heels by Gianvito Rossi and lots of diamonds, diggin’ the Jack Vartanian earrings!


Rosamund Pike


Rosamund looks gorgeous in all black, thanks to Roland Mouret with this amazing haltered, understated gown. Keeping with the minimalistic route, she is donning a few diamond pieces from Bulgari. (BAFTA)


Lea Seydoux

Lea looks striking and brimming with sunshine in this canary yellow Prada gown with side cutouts. This is the perfect look for her. This color can be very hard to pull off and she is pulling it off amazingly! (BAFTA)

Natalie Dormer


Such a classic look, but I really loved that Natalie made it her own and spiced things up a bit with these cobalt blue lace gloves. But I really do love this 2-tone navy blue & black Sophia Kah gown, flowing so beautifully with a lace train. Paired with her look, black Casadei heels and Yoko London jewels. (BAFTA)


Holliday Grainger

EE British Academy Film Awards 2015 - Red Carpet Arrivals

Not sure the designer for this elegant number, but it’s simply beautiful, classic black & white, the draping, just magnificent! And to top off her ladylike ensemble, Holliday is donning some breathtaking diamond jewelry pieces from De Beers. (BAFTA)



Maria Menounos


Maria is the embodiment of sexyglam in this black Emilio Pucci mini with lace details. And also, I mean, LEGS FOR DAYS, right! Karla Otto worked wonders in finding this perfect look for her. (Grammys)


Giannetos Dimitris too did a fabulous job with Maria’s hair — in love with this chic braid!


And you can’t forget even the tiniest of details, such as how terrific this nail art is, kudos to Nail Job Love.


Heather McComb

Huge fan of Mac Duggal and thus now, huge fan of Heather — definitely workin’ this super fresh & fly LBD, with little twists & exciting details, such as sheer lace effects & embellishments. This is the perfect look for Heather while attending a pre-Grammy party, hosted by Primary Wave, also partnered with Brand Synergy Group & Cross. Coordinating perfectly with her look, another fave brand of mine, ashlyn’d clutches, and this charming little black clutch!

Styling was on point here, so kudos to Chic Little Devil Style House.

Dana Ward

Dana Ward_Mac Duggal(2)

Dana is the executive producer & host for ClevverTV, so of course she had to look super amazing & sexy while conducting some live Grammy coverage. And that she did in this gorgeous black & nude Mac Duggal mini.


Ariana Grande

I wasn’t in love wit Ariana’s red carpet look, too much dangling fabric. But I am head over heels for this Versace dress with a haltered neckline and cutouts. It was the right look for her moving performance!


Laura Bailey


Laura looked out of this world in this textured white Emilia Wickstead gown. It was demure and very ladylike; I’m a fan! (BAFTA)

image Felicity Jones

What a look! Felicity looks mesmerizing in this floral embellished 2-tone Dior gown. It’s magically enchanting and I’m entranced! She has paired with her look some understated diamond jewelry pieces —  Van Cleef and Arpel vintage earrings. (BAFTA)

Fifth Harmony

Republic Records And Big Machine Label Group Post GRAMMY CelebrationThe ladies were out and all lookin’ good while partying after the Grammys, at Republic Records And Big Machine Label Group Bash that night at Warwick. These girls are always coordinating, yet still all looking great — phenomenal!

“THE” Red Carpet Trends of the 2015 Award Season

The 2015 Award Season is in full swing, with the Golden Globes, Peoples Choice Awards, SAGs, Critics Choice, and more having already come and gone. There are still a few more award shows coming up though, a few on the country music scene, and of course heavy-hitters with the Oscars and Grammys. I have highlighted 9 red carpet trends during the 2015 award season, and I’m sure these trends will continue to be seen with the award shows still remaining.

What I’ve also done is found a way you can bring these red carpet trends to your own world. Fashion Nexus has had such fun collaborating with Mac Duggal, home of stunning designer dresses & gowns for red carpets, prom, homecoming and more. So if you want to dress like the stars for Prom 2015, or take on a major red carpet trend for a formal event of your own, trust Mac Duggal has plenty to offer!




Black and white individually are always seen on any red carpet. But this award season, the 2 hit colors have been paired quite frequently, especially dominating at the 2015 Peoples Choice Awards. Kat McPhee, Olivia Munn, Kaley Cuoco, Shaun Robinson, Sarah Paulson, and more all rocked this trend. And it was great seeing this color combo across a vast array of gowns.

Spring is not yet here, but flowers have certainly been blooming on the red carpet. It’s been seen in subtle neutral tones, paired with black, and bright hues.

#3 — RED — HOT, HOT, HOT!



Generally, I’m not a fan of naming a standalone color as a red carpet trend. Why? Because of course you are going to see almost any given color on the red carpet, and likely across several shows, that color will pop up more than once. But clearly, red looks have been all over the place, and way more than just a handful of times. Red especially dominated at the 2015 Golden Globes.

Blush, soft pink, close to nude tones, always very gorgeous on the red carpet, and certainly brings an elegant factor to any lovely lady donning this hue.

I love jumpsuits, so great seeing them on the various red carpets. Not sure if we will see any for the Oscars, but I imagine another few will pop up here and there as award season continues.

You are going to see white dresses on red carpets — it’s a given. But one trend I’ve noticed specifically with white looks this award season, are dresses with plunging necklines — va va voom!

76745L Ivory-PC

61930R IvoryNude-PC

48200H IvoryNude-PC




Black is another given color choice for red carpets. But specifically what I’ve been seeing, black with sheer effects — overlays, necklines, and more!

Think disco ball, or like with DWTS, the mirror ball trophy. These all over sparkling silver dresses have been all the rage. It’s not just the silver color, it’s about all of the glitz and glam, the sparkly beaded embellishments.

And finally, again with white, but this time, another little detail I’ve noticed, hints of silver embellishments, whether on the shoulder, the neckline, wherever it works best to add that needed sparkle.
