Ladies Who Lunch: 65th Cannes Film Festival!

The 65th Cannes Film Festival kicked off last night with its opening reception and as would be expected, it was a star studded event!  As the films begin rolling, the coveted Palme d'or winners are announced and the parties go on into the wee hours of the night, the Cannes Festival is the place to see and be seen!

I attended the Festival in 1999 and it was everything you could imagine it to be and more!  So much so that I look forward to attending again as soon as I get the chance!

One of the biggest focal points of the Cannes Festival is Fashion with a capital F!  With so many red carpet events, all of the major stars of the world will be trying to outdo each other with the most photographed look!  Melita Toscan du Plantier, wife of the late renowned French film producer Daniel Toscan du Plantier, capture the spirit of the Cannes Festival on opening night a gown by designer BASIL SODA.  The strapless gown of blue crepe with silk embroideries embodies the glamour, elegance and sophistication of the Festival and was truly one of the opening night winners!

As the Festival continues over the next week, all eyes will be on Cannes and the best that fashion has to offer!
