Cannes Film Festival Favourites

Dear Readers,

Last week saw the closing of the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.  It looked so gorgeous and warm there, I just wanted to hop on a plane and move to France ;)

All the celebs were there, decked out in their finest.  But in my opinion, Rachel McAdams stole the show - every single one of her looks was stunning!  Another favourite was the ever-daring-anything-but-subtle Fan Bing Bing - her choices are so crazy, dramatic, and over-the-top, yet somehow strangely amazing ;)  Maybe it's her confidence that carries the look?

The most popular colour of the festival was probably white, mostly of the lace variety, which was lovely and made me immediately want a white dress for summer... ;)

Below are my personal favs, in (mostly) red, white, and blue :)

Meet Me At the Met!

New York's Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute Gala this past Monday chose a special topic for the evening.  The traditional accessibly fun and sometimes trivial themes of past Galas were replaced by a more weighty, serious subject matter:  paying tribute to the work and memory of the late Lee Alexander McQueen and the unveiling of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibit in his honour, entitled Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.

God Save McQueen!

Dear Readers,

I must preface this by saying, had Kate Middleton not made the right dress choice last Friday, this post would not exist.

Truth be told, up until last week, I wasn't very excited about the Royal Wedding.  But I started to get into it, and come Friday morning, after I saw the (correct) dress, I just couldn't help myself!  I got sucked in to the frenzy of monarchical madness!!  (You might not be able to tell, but I wrote this post with a British accent!)

For anyone who missed the wedding and wants to catch up, this is basically what happened (and I dare any wedding naysayers not to enjoy this!):
