HIT: Sara Sampaio

Model Sara Sampaio hit the red carpet for the premiere of Inside Out in this stunning black ensemble which features a cut-out portion at the top. A simple white gold bracelet finished off the outfit, with long, teardrop earrings.

MISS: Eva Longoria

Actress Eva Longoria was at the premiere of Inside Out in a silky dress featuring lace panel cut-outs. The style and colour looks a bit dated if you ask us! Although her hair and makeup looked amazing.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

HIT: Poppy Delevingne

Model and socialite Poppy Delevingne stunned the crowds in a maxi dress by Valentino for the premiere of Carol. The emerald green colour matched perfectly with white diamonds and a relaxed up-do.

MISS: Natalie Portman

Captured at the photocall for her new film A Tale of Love and Darkness, Natalie Portman wore an asymmetric gown by Chanel. It might be appropriate for the warmer weather, but we just don’t think the style is too flattering.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film FestivalHIT: Salma Hayek

Actress Salma Hayek brought back some colour to the red carpet at the premiere of Rocco and His Brothers. We just love how this look is paired with a soft pink lip and tousled locks.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film FestivalMISS: Lindsay Ellingson

This might have been an amazing dress, but unfortunately there is way too much texture going on in Lindsay Ellingson’s ensemble. But, hair and makeup looks sexy and sultry – win!

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

HIT: Rooney Mara

Rarely one to make a fashion faux pas, Rooney Mara chose a stunning cream dress for the premiere of Carol at this years 68th annual event. The colour is perfect for her skin tone and is super flattering with her hair and makeup.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

MISS: Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda walked the red carpet at the premiere of The Sea of Trees in a cobalt blue, floor length gown. While we adore the colour on Jane, the style seems a little out-dated.

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

HIT: Diane Kruger

Actress Diane Kruger looked right at home on the red carpet, where she was spotted at the premiere of The Sea of Trees. Not only is this speckled gown an amazing tone, the style itself is perfect for summer!

10 Hits and Misses From The Cannes Film Festival

MISS: Sienna Miller

While we usually love everything Sienna Miller wears on the red carpet, this was just not one of them. The colour-blocking dress had too much going on at the front, not to mention that it photographed sheer – and looked like a kite.

The Week’s Best Red Carpet Dresses

Forget floor-length, this week’s celebrity style is all about chic short dresses, with everyone from Jessica Alba to Reese Witherspoon all showing off some leg. Here’s our pick of the best red carpet dresses.

Jessica Alba is sweet as pie at the Hollywood Stands Up to Cancer Event in Hollywood in this white broderie anglaise Ralph Lauren dress, but vamps it up with a slick of dark plum lips.

best4

Fellow guest Drew Barrymore is adorable as always in this Giuletta dress with J Crew heels. High street shoes – love it!

best2

Reese Witherspoon usually plays it safe but showed us some serious cleavage in her tangerine Roland Mouret dress while co-hosting the event with hubbie Jim Toth. Love the pewter Jimmy Choo heels.

OK, it’s not technically a dress, but few women can pull off a red carpet tuxedo like Anne Hathaway (hers is by Viktor & Rolf).

best1

Cameron Diaz rugged up against the brutal cold in New York for the opening of the flagship Tag Heuer store in an elegant black and white coat with opaque tights and black heels.

best6

Jennifer Connelley rocked a Dolce & Gabbana lace LBD for her appearance on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, paired with a tousled bob and classic red lipstick.

Casual Celebrity Style

We’re used to seeing celebrities in red carpet dresses, but their off-duty looks are just as inspiring for celebrity style. Here’s how to get five perfect summer outfits for less.

Maxi dress with denim jacket
Sarah Michelle Gellar rocked one of summer’s favourite celebrity style looks, pairing a floral maxi dress with a denim jacket. This is a great look for festivals and summer picnics – simply accessories with a long necklace and pretty leather sandals.
Get the look for less: The 1&20 Blackbirds Floral Maxi Dress is a relaxed fit maxi dress that takes us back to our 90’s grunge days, but with a thoroughly modern edge.

Tartan shirt with maxi dress
Jessica Alba was spotted wearing a casual grey maxi skirt paired with a plain white tee and a tartan button-up for a comfortable look that is both casual and cool. She completed the outfit with a studded cross-body purse.
Get the look for less: The Madalyn Double Split Maxi Skirt is similar in style and is a comfortable trend for spring and autumn. Wear it with a t-shirt or singlet for day, and cover up with a blazer at night.

Black and white striped dress
Colour blocking with bold prints is one of the latest ways to celebrate the season with a dress that pops and stands out in a crowd. Emma Watson’s striped dress doesn’t need accessories – just pair with classic black ballerinas and you’re ready for a lazy brunch.
Get the look for less: The Motel Suki Stripe Dress is a great everyday dress – pair it with a colourful belt for a pop of colour.

Printed drawstring pants with a white singlet
Gwen Stefani is the queen of fashion and a celebrity style inspiration thanks to her unique taste and the risks she takes with her wardrobe. Even on a casual day with her boys, wearing printed drawstring pants and a plain white singlet, she managed to look effortlessly chic. Lightweight printed pants are a summer holiday must-have, just slip on and team with your favourite t-shirt and flip flops.
Get the look for less: Suboo Leopard Print Pants are universally-flattering. Replace your sandals for heels for an easy day-to-night look.

Red shorts with black blazer
Looking for the perfect Saturday afternoon outfit for catching up with friends? Rachel Bilson’s laid-back style shows she isn’t trying too hard, but still looks polished. Vibrant shorts are a great pop of colour, but stop short of looking too clown like when they’re toned down by a classic white t-shirt and well-cut black blazer.  Get the look for less: ASOS Culotte Shorts in Geo Floral Print come in a fun print and are easy to pack for summer holidays.

Worst Golden Globes Red Carpet Dresses

So many amazing red carpet dresses at the Golden Globes 2014…and yet, so many shockers, and surprisingly, from some of our favourite celebrities. Let’s take a look at some of the fashion disasters…

goldenglobes19

What just happened? Who styled this? You’ve got the start of a business-casual, boyfriend shirt-inspired outfit by Dolce & Gabbana. Then, her stylist added a feminine sparkly diamante belt, which does nothing to accentuate her waist. Finally, a 60’s beehive to complete the discombobulated look.

goldenglobes23

Zoe Saldana is one of the hottest actresses right now, so I guess she was going for edgy when she chose to wear this Prabal Gurung 80’s prom dress. She’s not the only one who had a Prabal Gurung disaster tonight…

goldenglobes15

Sandra Bullock has been scoring a lot of fashion wins lately, so it’s sad she chose this Prabal Gurung satin mullet dress. The colour combination doesn’t work, and the low cut doesn’t flatter either. And those pointy boobs remind us of Anne Hathaway’s 2014 pink Oscars dress. Not good.

goldenglobes20

Mila Kunis has worn some of the prettiest red carpet dresses, yet even she doesn’t love this Liberace-inspired look.

goldenglobes18

Uma Thurman seems to have lost her red carpet mojo. The black top and skirt don’t match, instead creating a jarring contrast. She looks severe and unsexy, which is unheard of for Uma.

goldenglobes14

We wanted to love anything that Jennifer Lawrence chose to wear to the Golden Globes. And from the thighs up, we get it. It’s Dior, it’s high fashion, but that white tulle skirt just looks cheap, like the Spotlight end of year offcuts. Also not a fan of the mismatched jewellery.

goldenglobes21

We can’t wait for season 2 of House of Cards, but Kate Mara’s Golden Globes J Mendel gown is hurting our eyes tonight. The bleached locks, the in-your-face boobs, the weird drape…so many better choices for this pretty young thing.

goldenglobes4

Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss sadly looks like she just woke up an hour before the Golden Globes. Her hair looks messy and her handkerchief tail J Mendel dress doesn’t flatter.

goldenglobes12

Hayden Panettiere debuted a new short haircut, sleeking it back – but it just looks like covering up a bad hair day. And we don’t like the dress either – remember when above-knee slits were big in the early 90’s? Yep, this looks feels just as outdated.

goldenglobes11

We’ve seen Emma Thompson rock the pre-Golden Globes parties in style, but sadly, she showed up wearing a rock-hard gold bodice that looks like it belongs on the set of 300, finished in a boring black skirt.
