Festival de Cannes 2012

The famous Cannes Festival from 16-27 May is not just known for its films, but also for its fashion. Just like the Oscars, many celebrities from around the world come to Cote D'Azure France in the latest top notch dresses or tuxedos from the Spring/Summer and Haute Couture 2012 collections. Pictures below are from the opening of Cannes Festival 65th Anniversary and the premiere of 'Moonrise Kingdom' directed by Wes Anderson.

The red dress worn by Berenice Bejo could easily be mistaken for a Valentino but in homage of the red carpet as host of the Cannes Festival, French fashion house Louis Vuitton could not have produced a better dress for the opening!

Rare Exceptional Blazers

A normal cut blazer is an essential, but an exclusive design makes one look glamorous and sets you apart from the classics and everyone else. Dior Homme in Kris van Assche's debut triggered new character within the 2008 & 2009 collections. As for more current designs, Hong Kong fashion designer Henry Lau makes beautiful jackets under the label Spy along with John Galliano, Gareth Pugh, and Neil Barrett!

Crazy Prints - D&G + Others

For anyone out there seeking attention to stand out among crowds, an eye catching overlay is the best way to go! D&G for their last collection Spring/Summer 2012, as announced back in late September 2011, ended the label with splashes of electrifying colors, mind-blowing patterns and spontaneity. According to designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana D&G will translate into their other labels, giving "even more energy and strength to our collections" (

Whether it is for girls or boys, symmetry has been overdone. Designers nowadays therefore are moving steps beyond from the ordinary into greater scopes making imagination come to life. From special techniques in fabric choice, shapes, lines, and cuts, designers challenge themselves to transform clothes into contemporary and unique pieces! For men, the most recognized item was and probably still is the asymmetrical zipper jacket. Though it is mainly seen for women (mainly in Haute Couture collections), over the top designers notably Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, and Vivienne Westwood do provide this world of fantasy and inventiveness distinct to other designers.
