However this week we were slapped in the face with the very revealing outfits many of the stars dared to walk down that carpet with.

This is a fun collection of the top 10 most revealing outfits of the night:

Cannes Stars Shine on the Red Carpet

Given that us, the mortals, are not given the honor to watch the premiers of the amazing movies and documentaries premiering at Cannes, there is a pleasure that we have developed out of just watching the stars walk down the red carpet. And there’s no shame in that, it is a given that they do a hell of a job just by doing that. This year, Woody Allen presented his latest film, An Irrational Man, starring the beautiful Emma Stone, who did not disappoint. Julianne Moore did not fail to impress; it seems that as she grows older, she just keeps getting better. Her movie Mad Max: Fury Road , will hopefully amaze us just as much.  So without further or due, we present you the most beautifully dressed Cannes stars of the week:

Natalie Portman in Dior

Naomi Watts in Elie Saab

Lupita Nyongo in Gucci

Julianne Moore in Givenchy couture

Dior Cruise 2016

Resort collections always have the chance to be presented at the most curious of places. This time, Dior’s Cruise decided to host the show at Pierre Cardin’s Le Palais Bulles, a very odd and spheric terra-cotta building. Raf Simons, creative director, though it to be “Playful, sweet…childish, almost. The house is big but intimate, and it doesn’t behave like an authority. And Dior can do that sometimes, especially if you look at it from an architectural point of view.” Cardin, 92, attended the show. 

Raf was able to keep Dior’s aesthetic without losing his own down the road. This collection was intriguing, modern, and yet really kept the brand’s heritage. The tailoring was amazing, the prints elegant and unique, and the creativity inspiring. We’re looking forward to more of Raf Simons’ trajectory with the brand!

Sean Diddy Combs’ Newest Fragrance

Sean Diddy Combs, the amazing entertainer and business mogul has done it again, now launching a fragrance with an almost too-sexy video, featuring his girlfriend/model, Cassie giving the best of herself at 3AM. Interestingly, this video is not all about sex, but about fiery romance and love, Comb has said: “love is the new sexy.” Still, the entire video is not exactly PG13, so a milder version will be premiering in Macy’s at 3AM on May 6th with Diddy himself.
“Fragrance is truly a passion of mine”-says Mr. Combs, ” and I have always said that it is the finishing touch to anyone’s outfit and mood. For my newest scent, 3AM, I have combined the most luxurious ingredients to create a fragrance that draws everyone close to you while washing away your sins. It has both sensual and fresh notes reminiscent of a night that you never want to end. 3AM is at once breathtaking, addictive, and slightly dangerous leaving even the most elegant men and women uninhibited.”
