Cannes Film Festival 2014: Blake Lively

We’re only a third of the way through Cannes and so far it’s clear that the show has been stolen by actress Blake Lively.

She was announced as a L’Oreal girl in November of last year, a perfect match because of that beautiful long luscious blonde hair. And becoming a L’Oreal girl means automatic attendance to the Cannes Film Festival, their one sole job: to bring the glamour.

Blake wowed us at the opening ceremony which also served as the premiere for Nicole Kidman’s royal biopic Grace of Monaco. She wore a two-tone maroon Gucci Premiere (the fragrance which she is also the face of) fully pleated gown, that was absolutely flawless. I love the hair and make up on this occasion which just brings the look to another level, the messy high braided ponytail and smoky eye make up just left her smouldering with sexy. It reminded me of her amazing promo tour run for Savages a couple of years ago when she just knocked it out of the park time after time.

The following evening we saw Blake change it up completely in a Chanel Couture dress with that familiar nipped waist silhouette. We’ve already seen the likes of Keira Knightley and Rihanna wear this dress, but Blake gave it that extra bit of bedazzle in this iridescent version with sequins and that shawl draped around her arms. I can see how some may not particularly like this, but I think it marks a different look for Blake even though the ever-present plunge neckline is still there.

Her next appearance marked the most gasp-worthy, goosebump tingling red carpet moment ever for Blake Lively. She appeared in a stunning Gucci Premiere fifties inspired monochrome gown, it had that old Hollywood glamour feel with echoes of Julia Roberts’ Valentino Oscar gown from 2001 and Reese Witherspoon’s Armani from the 2011 Oscars. The piece de resistance of course was her arm candy, husband Ryan Reynolds. Considering it was his movie premiere he wasn’t to be left in the background, he looked very handsome in a white tie Gucci tuxedo that perfectly complemented Blake. I must say they are serious competition for my favourite Hollywood couple Diane Kruger and Josh Jackson.

I can’t wait for more from Blake Lively at Cannes!
