Stunning floor length gowns, brilliant glistening diamonds, men in tuxes with gorgeous women by their side surrounding roulette tables; those are the images that come to mind when I imagine the Cannes Film Festival. Glamor at its highest form. Oh yes, and the movie premieres.
This year’s 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, as usual, did not disappoint. Though I believe the roulette tables are purely notions in my imagination, the enchantment and charm came to life once again at the world’s most prestigious film festival.
My noteworthy stand-outs were Sienna Miller in the impeccable navy one shouldered Lanvin gown, Zoe Kravitz in an ethereal cloud-like number from Valentino’s Sala Bianca 945 Haute Couture collection, the always stunning Julianne Moore in Armani Prive (and again in Givenchy Couture), yet the belle of the ball was most definitely the breath-takingly beautiful Charlize Theron in dazzling yellow strapless Christian Dior Couture!
Chime in on who was your epitome of gorgeousness this year.

Rest In Peace B.B. King
Riley B. King, the legendary guitarist known as B.B. King, whose velvety voice and economical, expressive style brought blues from the margins to the mainstream, died Thursday night at 89 years young.
The Mississippi native’s reign as “King of the Blues” lasted more than six decades and straddled two centuries, influencing a generation of rock and blues musicians, from Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan to Sheryl Crow and John Mayer.
It’s safe to say the blues wouldn’t be what they are today without him. He will be greatly missed.
