Angela’s Lab | Stars Making a Statement in Cannes

The Cannes Film Festival is one of those red carpet moments worth following. And, after a rather disappointing array of looks at the normally oh-so-fashionable Met Gala, I am in my happy place seeing the celebrity-worthy styles on display in the south of France this week. My best-dressed picks thus far are primarily the ladies that chose vibrant colors (they are literally glowing), plus one supermodel in white and one star in a black mini — always très chic.

A regular fixture on best-dressed lists, Lupita Nyong’o does it again. She is stunning in Gucci and her up-do perfect as it doesn’t compete with the embellishments on the gown. The “twirlability” of this dress… I have no words.

Known for her always-sophisticated presence, Charlize Theron projects old Hollywood, and yet is utterly modern, in this canary yellow Dior gown.

I haven’t been a fan of some of her recent red carpet choices, but Julianne Moore is totally back and stunning in this rich Givenchy gown. Love!

Salma Hayek wows in this figure-flattering, graphic print dress by Alexander McQueen. The unfussy hair and minimal accessories let the dress make the statement.

Okay, she’s a supermodel and looks otherworldly in basically anything, but I love how Doutzen Kroes owns this second-skin, stark white Atelier Versace gown.

Finally, this Oscar de la Renta dress is so perfect for Emma Stone — she is darling, sexy, and girl-next-door-approachable all rolled into one. I want this LBD for my closet.
