It’s the second day of the Cannes Film Festival and the glamour continues on the red carpet with the premiere of Sofia Coppola’s film The Bling Ring. Though Emma Watson does not play the main character of the film, she definitely took centre stage turning heads today at her first Cannes 2013 event. Donning two different outfits for day and night, the Brit actress effortlessly pulls off both her looks.
At The Bling Ring photo call earlier today, Emma Watson, who showed no signs of her alter ego Nicki, wore a burgundy outfit by Christopher Kane, which consisted of a burgundy crop top with feather trimmings and a matching skirt from Kane’s Fall 2013 collection. Watson showcased her natural beauty by keeping her makeup at a minimal and hair tied back in a neat bun. She finished off the look with a pair of sky-high black suede stilettos.

Beauty Fix: How to do a frizz-free blowout on the most humid of days and more answers to your beauty questions

How do I make my at-home blowout frizz-free in the summer?
Something key to remember is that the environment in which you blowdry your hair has a large impact on how your hair will react to heat styling. It’s advisable to blowdry your hair in a dry environment, i.e. not the bathroom you just steamed up with your shower! Next, make sure your hair is actually completely dry when you have completed the blowout. Any damp areas are likely to react to the air temperatures around you, which seldom results in smooth strands. Always finish hair with an anti-humidity spray, such as Oribe Imperméable Anti-humidity Spray ($44, at Donato Salon & Spa), which utilizes copolymer technology to shield hair from the impact of humidity, and also contains a UV filter to protect hair.

Kate Middleton gets 13 exclusive baby bump designs from Karl Lagerfeld, Donna Karan, Vera Wang and more
Who else but the Duchess of Cambridge could get Karl Lagerfeld to whip out his pen with the promise of nothing more than fantasy? Today, Women’s Wear Daily released 13 sketches of maternity designs suggested by the likes of Donna Karan, Vera Wang, Alexis Mabille, Chloé and Lagerfeld for Chanel as Kate Middleton’s baby bump continue to grow. Including both designers who frequently dress the Duchess like Amanda Wakeley, and ones who haven’t, like Huishan Zhang, the piece could be a good shot for some less recognizable names to get noticed by friends in royal places. Or not. If nothing else, it’s an exercise in imagination, which hasn’t been attempted since the Duke and Duchess’s last big event: the Royal Wedding. We picked a few designs from the selection that we think are right on the money for Kate. Click through for our selects and visit WWD for the full maternity monty.
Chanel Cruise 2014: The celebs, the rich girls and beautiful backstage images from Karl’s latest runway show in Singapore
Steamy Singapore. What better site for a Chanel show given the tropical climate and its enthusiastic shoppers?
At last night’s Chanel Cruise 2013 show, the thatched huts of an old nutmeg plantation offered a colonial setting along with caviar canapés, aged cheeses and iberico ham pulled right off the bone.
Dakota Fanning, Carine Roitfeld and Andre Leon Talley were among the few Western guests, the scene otherwise dominated by Singapore gals who not only love their Chanel, they love it from pearl-drop earrings to flatform sneaker. There were two women in the same striped outfit Lana Del Rey wears in FASHION’s Summer issue, though one was jacketless. I suspect she arrived to find the other guest in the identical look and quickly doffed the jacket to avoid looking like twins.

Oh that Karl Lagerfeld.
Turns out he didn’t tell the stars of his latest short film, Once Upon a Time…Deauville 1913, that they would have speaking roles.
“I thought it was going to be a silent movie,” Keira Knightley revealed leading up to the film premiere on the lawn of the Raffles Hotel in Singapore earlier today. Knightley, who plays Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in the lyrical black and white short that depicts the opening of Chanel’s seaside shop, didn’t make it to the party. But plenty others did.
Sipping Singapore Slings and lounging on the rattan chairs: French actress Clotilde Hesme, who plays Chanel’s Aunt Adrienne, Saskia de Brauw who plays Vita Sackville-West, Jamie Bochert, who appears as society muse and patron Luisa Casati, and Stella Tennant, who plays Lady de Grey, an early Chanel fan and pal of Oscar Wilde (his play A Woman of No Importance was dedicated to her.)

The case of the Keira Knightley wedding dress can officially be closed. It’s Chanel, ladies and gents.
Been hiding under a rock? We’ll bring you up to wedding speed. Knightley and Klaxons keyboardist James Righton tied the knot last weekend in the South of France. Following the ceremony, a wedding reception was supposedly held at Knightley’s mother Sharman Macdonald’s estate with over fifty guests in attendance including Sienna Miller and Karl Lagerfeld. Lovely.
Despite the rumours that Karl Lagerfeld would design a custom Chanel wedding dress for his Coco Mademoiselle ambassadress, Knightley went the low-key route, selecting a dress from her own archives instead. With the release of the candid shot above, there were many tweets speculating that the dress was Rodarte, because of its close resemblance to Knightley’s dress she wore at a BAFTA party in 2008.
However, Chanel has stepped out to clarify the rumours, as well they should!
Hand in hand with her husband, Knightley looks smitten in an above the knee pale grey tulle strapless dress from the Chanel Couture Spring 2006 collection with a little white tweed jacket created by Uncle Karl himself. She completed her bridal look with a pair of Chanel pink and grey ballet flats and topped it off with a simple pink floral halo hairpiece. Who needs custom when you’ve got love, right? (Right?)
