Accessorising Festival de Cannes

As the Festival de Cannes got underway yesterday with a whole host of celebrities descending on the French Riviera for Cannes Filmfestival 2013, guest blogger and award winning accessories designer Jo Barnes Vintage takes a look at creating Hollywood glamour outfits worthy of any red carpet, from the high street.


Hey French wedding readers, another guest post from me, Jo Barnes, creator of all things sparkly!!

Founded in 1947 the Cannes film festival which takes place from 15th to 26th May oozes glamour and glitz and celebrates its 66th year. Lots of Hollywood celebrities will be attending this prestigious event dressed in their designer attire. You too can create the Hollywood film siren look with our fabulous collection of Red Carpet headwear.

I have selected a range of beautiful evening gowns at prices which are purse friendly and matched them perfectly with our beautiful range of coloured headdresses.

I hope you enjoy the collection…
