Red Carpet Accessories

Day 1 of Cannes Film Festival, I would be delighted to be there one day, but for this year I am searching the web to follow the activities, fashion and news.  The first day has brought out the glitz and glamour on the red carpet for the screening of Moonrise Kingdom by Wes Anderson.

Eva Longoria wore a stunning pale-pink mermaid gown, fitted down to the knee and flared into a long feathered train.

Diane Kruger opted for a mint green dress gathered in a corset, with a long cape-like swathe of translucent material falling from her left shoulder.

The other two stand out dresses for me include oyster pink translucent gown worn by Eva Herzigova and a chic block colour dress by french actress Virginie Ledoyen.

Today in the spirit of Cannes frosting, I am delighted to bring you the new red carpet collection from Jo Barnes Vintage.  You may remember her fabulous new retro glamour collection that she launched earlier this year and has followed it up with a red carpet accessories collection that will have you the belle of any glitzy event.
