Two of my favorite actresses looked simply elegant tonight in Cannes at the premiere of the Woody Allen film “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger”, at the Palais.  I’m loving the gowns chosen by Naomi Watts and Diane Lane. Naomi is one of the stars of Allen’s film. Naomi wore a strapless pale pink chiffon gown embellished with silver sequins by Gucci Première collection.  She accented the gown with a sparkling platinum bracelet set with heart shaped diamonds (62cts) and diamonds by Chopard.  Her ruby earrings were also by Chopard, but some diamonds might have been a bit more subtle 🙂   I love her look, her hair, and the whole efffect.  I think a cuff is a great way to add an accent.  My current favorite budget cuffs are Kenneth Jay Lane via the shopping clubs, or even his QVC collection.  There are also some great bracelets on clearance now in the Jacqueline Kennedy QVC collection.  After all, Chopard is amazing, but not always affordable.

My other favorite tonight is Diane Lane in this Monique Lhuillier one-shoulder navy floor length gown with the asymmetrical one shoulder strap. A simple diamond brooch accents her waist and the draping of the dress. It’s stunning.  Midnight blue or navy is a great evening look complimented with a little bling.  Check out some lower priced one shoulder midnight blue dresses at or BCBG.  As for the brooch, there are some great pieces on sales at Macy’s right now and TJ Maxx. I also love looking for Vintage pieces on eBay.  It’s the look we seek to emulate, not the price.
