Red Carpet De Do Do Do’s

Sorry folks, I never met an ‘80s pop culture reference I didn't like. On to more pressing subject matters, like who rocked the red carpet best at the Cannes Film Festival.

Cate Blanchette. In a word: stunning. Step aside kiddies, Cate is the epitome of red-carpet glam in this peachy confection by Armani Prive. The color perfectly accents her glowy complexion, and the one-shoulder look is so on trend. At the risk of sounding horribly cheesy, (and throwing in a ‘70s pop reference) heaven must be missing an angel.

Natalie Portman is one of those rare creatures with an innate sense of style. The fact that she is completely tuned in to what works for her bodyline is a refreshing change from most stylist-employing starlets (Mischa Barton we’re talking to you). The cobalt blue is so of-the-moment and I love that a petite girl can pull off a full-on ruffle look that doesn’t swallow her whole like this.

Gwyneth Paltrow. I have mixed feelings about this dress. I love the body-skimming silk in an inky shade, but I’m a little on the fence about all of those bows. Still, it’s Chanel, the silhouette definitely suits her, and the accessories are fab – especially those Roger Vivier heels so I’d still call this a “do.”

Agree, disagree? Comments please and vote for your fave!

I love Natalie Portman. She's just so chic! And so unlike other stars her age. Though, to be honest, out of these three I have to pick Cate. That dress is just stunning.

What a funny, but very true post! It's so rare to see women that know what works on their bodies. Sadly I would even put myself in that category at times, knowing full well that the whole maternity top look is not my friend, but still purchasing them since they're 'comfy.'

I completely agree with you but only in first two conclusions. I don't like Paltrow dress, she looks like small a crow.

I love Natalie Portman. She just seems so effortlessly chic and stylish. She also seems so down to earth. I would love to just have a conversation with her

Cate is always so classy and yet can challenge her style. She always wins.

Cate, as usual, wins. Natalie is adorable but that Chanel dress looks so off on Gwyneth - it's ill-fitting.

love cate, love natalie, and... love gwyneth. I know somethings off and I can't stand her as an actress but something about the glowing face, soft pretty hair, and a dress that might be off but still looks amazing- love it.
