Cannes 2008 Must-Haves
Cannes 2008 Must-Haves
Julianne Moore's Sunglasses
Sunny and 70 degrees: while the average weather conditions during the festival call for sunglasses, bien sur, celebrities require them as part of their star uniform. And an oversize pair like Julianne's are especially fabulous.
BUY SUNGLASSES LIKE JULIANNE'S Oversized sunglasses, Gucci, $150; at bluefly.com.
Angelina Jolie's Glam Gown
Whether it's on the steps of the Palais des Festivals theater or the amFAR gala, a head-turning gown is a necessity. And the more audacious and extravagant, the better-this is the French Riviera, after all.
BUY A DRESS LIKE ANGELINA'S Embellished gown, Tibi, $645; at net-a-porter.com.
Mischa Barton's Sarong
Ah, the age-old question: What do you wear for an afternoon on Roberto Cavalli's yach? A bikini and brightly-printed sarong, of course!
BUY A SARONG LIKE MISCHA'S Sikar sarong, Calypso Christiane Celle, $55; at calypso-celle.com.
Kylie Minogue's Sandals
Cannes itself is not terribly big, but that doesn't mean there isn't a lot of walking to do. Strolling up and down La Croisette will be much more pleasant in stylish flat sandals like Kylie's.
BUY SANDALS LIKE KYLIE'S Fringed thong sandal, Prada, $316; at bluefly.com.
Beyonce's Simple Sundress
Between the premiere and gala gowns, a few simple styles should make their way into the suitcase as well. A sassy little polo dress with flat shoes fits the bill perfectly.
BUY A DRESS LIKE BEYONCE'S Polo dress, Bloomingdale's, $140; at Bloomingdales.com.
Claudia Schiffer's Flirty Sundress
Something a little girly and a little sexy couldn't be more appropriate in France. A fresh white color and the addition of wedge sandals adds to the fresh look.
BUY A DRESS LIKE CLAUDIA'S Dotted voile sundress, BCBG Max Azria, $220; at Nordstrom.com.
Elle Macpherson's Tan
A healthy glow seems to go hand-in-hand with a beachside town like Cannes. And with regular applications of a subtle tanner, a beautiful bronze like Elle's doesn't require unsafe sunning at the beach.
GET SELF TANNER TO GIVE ELLE'S GLOW Natural Glow self tanner, Jergens, $6; at drugstore.com.
Penelope Cruz's Shawl
As a cover-up for a cool evening, or just a fresh floating accessory, a wrap or shawl makes a simple and lovely addition to any red carpet ensemble.
BUY A SHAWL LIKE PENELOPE'S Silk metallic shawl, Spiegel, $59; at Spiegel.com.
Michelle Rodriguez's Bikini
Take a plunge in a punchy-print two-piece like Michelle's. The Med may be a bit cool, but a string bikini is always hot.
BUY A BIKINI LIKE MICHELLE'S Printed string bikini, Emilio Pucci, $325; at ronherman.com.
Naomi Campbell's Hat
Another piece of the mega-star's wardrobe is the glamorous sun hat. Whether waving to the paparazzi from a yacht or shielding themselves at an outdoor lunch, any starlet will find a wide brimmed chapeau a necessity.
BUY A HAT LIKE NAOMI'S Straw hat, Nordstrom, $110; at Nordstrom.com.
Audrey Tatou's Pretty Makeup
With all the world's press on hand, a bright smile, framed by a gorgeous pout is an essential for stars walking up to the Palais des Festivals. A classic red lip will never look out of place at this glamorous event.
BUY LIPSTICK LIKE AUDREY'S Rouge Allure lip color in Dazzling, CHANEL, $30; at chanel.com.
Petra Nemcova's Sizzling Dress
Every night is a fete in Cannes, so an equally hot hot hot dress, like Petra's sequined mini, is a must.
BUY A DRESS LIKE PETRA'S Dance Queen Mini Dress, LaRok, $165; at Nordstrom.com.
Brad, George and Matt's Tuxes
Sure, we'd love them looking casual, but when these hunks don a well-tailored tuxedo, the sexy quotient soars. Taking your main man to the festival? Get him suited up.
BUY A TUX LIKE BRAD, GEORGE AND MATT'S Classic tuxedo, Armani Collezioni, $1,995; at neimanmarcus.com.
Rebecca Romijn's Bubbly
While hanging out on the Budweiser yacht, Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell enjoy a toast to the good life. Rebecca's got the right idea: when in France, enjoy the nectar!
