  • Cannes 2014 Closing Ceremony: Uma Thurman Has A Last Waltz On The Red Carpet

    Over the past 12 days we have been treated to a number of breathtaking tulle-tastic gowns, as Hollywood's finest hit the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. The fashion over on La Croisette didn't disappoint - from Blake Lively's collection of dreamy ball gowns to Chloe Grace Moretz in an adorable Chanel boater.

    Sadly the frock-a-thon has come to an end, as last night was the closing ceremony. Seriously, what are we going to do without our daily dose of red carpet glamour? Thankfully for now we have one last batch of floor-sweepers to dissect.

    The festival closed with a special screening of the 1964 film starring Clint Eastwood, A Fistful of Dollars. The screening was hosted by Quentin Tarrentino who hit the red carpet with Uma Thurman. Uma wore a Givenchy Couture white satin gown with embroidery on the bodice and a sheer elaborate neckline.

    For once it wasn't the dress that got us talking, but Uma's dancing skills. The actress did a last waltz, spinning up the red carpet with her date Quentin.

    Also on the red carpet was Sofia Coppola who wore a simple navy custom Valentino gown with short sleeves, which she spiced up with a diamond and ruby necklace by Chopard. Paz Vega gave us train envy in her sweeping embellished Ralph & Russo couture gown, with a black rose on the shoulder which cascaded into a black waist belt.

    It's not all about the dresses however, remember this is a serious film festival. Last night the winners of the prestigious Palme D'Or were revealed, and this year it went to Turkey's Nuri Bilge Ceylan for his film Winter Sleep. While Brit Timothy Spall was named best actor for his portrayal of the British artist Turner in Mr Turner.

  • TV BAFTA Red Carpet run down

    So Naomi Campbell was there. We're not sure exactly why she was there, but - boy - was she there. We'll get to her in (yet) more detail shortly as she falls under our 'confusing' category. First, to those who glammed it up suitably for the occasion.

    Bravo to both Jodie Whittaker and Olivia Coleman, who collectively exuded old-school class, especially when compared to their fraught Broadchurch characters.

    As for Helena Bonham Carter, it's really nice to see she didn't just charge through her bottomless Vivienne Westwood wardrobe and tumble out through a back door in Narnia for a change. We also want those sunglasses.

    Those who also struck the right chord include Laura Whitmore, Amanda Byram(G'WANTHEGERRALS!) and Maria off Corrie.

    To the 'confusing' and therefore to Naomi Campbell in full. While this dress was purely made for those with only the best of physiques, we can't help but think it looks like she's about to have open heart surgery, or she got lost on the way to a 'Bodies' exhibition... We do have to applaud the might of that little bit of string there, it's playing an absolute blinder.

    And then we have Sheridan Smith. A lot of people have been complaining this morning that the press are only showing 'unflattering photos' of Sheridan and therefore not doing her new doo justice. After locating what can be deemed a nice photo, we can safely say, Sheridan, you pull off the techno skunk hair with aplomb, we're just not sure you should've teamed it with a dress you'd wear to a lunch meeting taking place in an Essex boozer. Now, if she'd worn a nice, long, floaty halterneck number with some chunky jewellery, that would've been stunning.

    OK, to Tess Daly. Firstly, have to confess I'm on A LOT of meds at the minute (tonsillitis/ear infection = one major 'infecthead') and the antibiotics I'm on have been known to cause slight hallucinations, but is anyone else seeing hundreds of cockroaches swarming up Tess's dress? If I weren't tripping off me box, the usual summation would be "Tess Daly does the Sugarplum Fairy being done by Beth Lynch"

    For some reason, Alex Jones's dress really wants us to know where her Solar Plexus and her Sacral Chakras are.

    One can only assume Jamie is whispering "Louise, love, if you're going to do a Mullet Dress, you need to commit to a Mullet Dress. It's like your hem's about to flatline, or it's been nibbled on by the dog, or you've got it caught in the top of your pop sock - what way are you standing anyway, are your knees broken?"

    And, finally, to the 'unfortunately hued.' Yes, Olivia Coleman wore a green dress, but that was Emerald green, and it was an entire dress. Your tie, however, Martin Freeman, looks like you've snozzled down the front of your shirt. Or you've gotten a bit nervous and had a little vom, which you're now holding together with a tie pin. Either way, go for ANY other colour apart from lime/snot green next time.
