Best Celebrity Trends at Cannes

Whether it’s pronounced "cans," "khan," or "cons" – or something else entirely – the

63rd Annual Cannes Film Festival

in France drew celebrities from around the world, premiering not only their films, but exciting and glamorous looks as well. Since Joan Rivers doesn’t do red carpet commentary at Cannes, here’s the Fashion Spot’s guide to the latest celebrity trends seen at the festival. It’s your call who wears each trend best:



Asian actress Fan Bingbing’s foamy train on her Elie Saab gown seems to form a yin-yang with English singer Cheryl Cole’s black tulle mermaid dress by Roberto Cavalli.

Fluttery Eggplant Sleeves

English actress Nora Arzeneder mirrors America’s sweetheart Meg Ryan’s sleeves at the premiere of the Mexican film Biutiful, but thankfully they each keep their dresses age-appropriate.

Belted Metallics

One metallic dress with a braided belt may seem like enough (or too much), but surprisingly there were two celebs trying this trend on the red carpet. At the premiere of the Italian film Certified Copy, Juliette Binoche looks like a disheveled 80’s Barbie in her awkwardly asymetrical gold lame Lanvin gown, while Slovakian fashion model Adriana Karembeu looks like dressed-up leftovers in a larger-than-life gown that may or may not be made out of tin foil.

Bold Beading

Kate Beckinsale also commanded attention at the Biutiful premiere in this daring beaded Balmain gown with strong shoulders, a slit cut up to there, and an industrial-strength copper belt. If that doesn’t intimidate you, check out those sky-high velvet heels. Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai took a softer approach to beading with a traditional-but-dazzling golden sari made by Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, complimented by her minimal accessories and hair.
