With ten days to go, it’s already clear that the 2011 Cannes Film Festival is will be a huge source for inspiring fashion this season. There are already signs of trends that will appear throughout the next week and a half, like neutral colours, some nods to old Hollywood, and lots of gorgeous lace!

Kicking off the 2011 Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday night (11.5.11) was the star-studded premiere of Woody Allen’s film Midnight in Paris, where retro Hollywood glamour took center stage. Rachel McAdams, who plays the leading role of Inez in Midnight, arrived in a beige tulle Marchesa gown covered in strategically placed ruby-red lace. Her blonde hair was styled in a deep side part and full, bouncy curls, and her soft smoky eye contrasts nicely with the colourful gown. She kept her footwear neutral with taupe Casadei pointed pumps, and her nails were even a shimmery taupe! Accompanying McAdams was new boyfriend, and very hairy, Michael Sheen; the pair met on the set of Midnight in Paris.

Also looking positively glamorous at the Allen premiere was Uma Thurman, who wore a white floor-length Versace gown with a full skirt and wispy white feathers throughout the back. A sizable slit up the front of her dress as well as a keyhole cutout on the center of her back both added a healthy dose of sex appeal; Thurman herself mused, “It’s sexy, isn’t it?” Especially love the sweetheart neckline; combined with the feathers, it softens everything up it a bit.

One of the brightest colours we’ve seen so far was the bright fuchsia of Linda Cardellini’s Alberta Ferretti silk gown. The shape is very pretty – especially the Grecian-inspired shoulders, draped V-neckline, and belted waist – but what really makes this dress is the subtle fuchsia lace detailing on the edges of the fabric. Cardellini really lets the dress shine on its own by wearing her hair in a sleek updo and keeping jewellery to an absolute minimum.
