Fan Bingbing

This quirky hippie-meets-princess Marchesa masterpiece is so wonderfully over-the-top that we’d be heartless to hate it, especially when it makes the doll-like Bingbing look like an ethereal flower child.

K-drama’s leading lady brought some Cheon Song Yi (from You Who Came from the Stars, of course) realness to the red carpet in pleated bronze Gucci, which made her resemble an ultra-glamorous warrior princess thanks to the pattern and metallic sheen.

Jane Fonda

At first we raised a questioning eyebrow over the random scratch mark-like cut-outs, but then we remembered that at 77 years old, this woman is literally old enough to our grandmother, and she is rocking a figure-hugging, electric blue Atelier Versace like some people half her age can never do. R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Emma Stone

Looking both edgy and elegant at the same time in a flouncy Oscar de La Renta frock is everybody’s dream best friend Emma. We don’t know about you, but we vote that she wear black more often – it pops against her porcelain skin like an absolute dream.

If Queen Elsa from Frozen were to attend Cannes, she’d probably wear this Zuhair Murad piece too – are we the only ones who are reminded of her iconic fashioned-out-of-snowflakes dress? Plus, Bingbing’s name literally means “ice ice”, making her all the more fit to don this elaborate beauty.

Sure, Emily’s sparkly Stella McCartney is a stunner, but we really caught our attention were her emerald Anna Hu Haute Joaillerie earrings, which provide an eye-pleasing pop against a muted palette and complement her eyes.

If our jaws dropped when we saw Charlize’s sunshiny Dior from our computer screen, we can only imagine the effect it had on the folks blessed enough to witness such exquisiteness in real life. Yellow is a tricky hue to pull off, but with Charlize’s poise and frame, anything is possible.

Cate Blanchett

After rocking a more androgynous look in pantsuit when she stopped over in Singapore for Fashion Week, Cate tread a more feminine path when she showed up in this Japan-inspired Armani Privé number, complete with a sexy deep V-neck and the glowing aura of bona fide Hollywood royalty. Long live the queen!

Angelababy

We’re willing to overlook the random metallic rings on Angelababy’s midsection in favour of her poppy pink lip and the rest of that gorgeous, fit-for-a-princess Christian Dior Couture creation. Don’t you just feel the urge to run your hand over the texture (er, in an appropriate way that won’t get you in trouble with her beau Huang Xiaoming, of course)?

Rooney Mara

If we had to describe Rooney’s look in McQueen, it would be: Duchess Catherine born into the Addams Family on Gossip Girl (which, by the way, is not a bad thing – she looks great, and that is a combination we are pleasantly surprised to find out actually works).

Can we just talk about how much Natalie reminds us of Audrey Hepburn in this delightful Dior (and we aren’t the first to compare her to the silver screen legend)? With that fabulous 50s-esque fit-and-flare silhouette, she looks like she stepped right out of a classic flick.

Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr

Her enviable figure and glowing skin make it hard for the brunette bombshell to look bad in anything, even this super plunging Emanuel Ungaro gown that’s the exact shade of pink as the Magnum logo behind her. Now, please excuse us while we go do some much-needed tummy crunches.

Lupita Nyong’o

With skin like Lupita’s, the mere act of wearing white (in this case, a simple but superb modern Marilyn Monroe-esque Oscar de la Renta) becomes a work of art.

Less is more, and the supermodel let her beaded, body-skimming dress, low-key but lovely accessories, and goddess-like complexion do all the talking.
