Nicole Kidman, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rooney Mara, and Carey Mulligan are just a few in a long list of fashion darlings and actresses to take Raf Simons from the runway to the red carpet. The latest is Jennifer Aniston, who chose a black strapless Dior minidress for the 2013 Guys Choice Awards. Ever since Belgian designer Simons, formerly of Jil Sander, took the reins at the legendary label, he's presented five exquisite collections. Naturally, stars like Cotillard (the face of Lady Dior) and Jennifer Lawrence (the face of Miss Dior handbags) have flocked to his jaw-dropping gowns, and we can totally see why. Simons is breathing new life into the design house by taking iconic past-collection references (think New Look from the 1940s) and updating them with a modern twist. Step inside to see all the stars who have donned Simons's designs for Dior now.
Far outweighing the glamour of most other red carpets, the Cannes Film Festival is as much about the jaw-dropping couture as it is about the movies. This year's fest was no exception — from start to finish, we were treated to a lineup of A-list dressing. Given the nonstop glamour, it's not easy to play favorites, but we've narrowed it down to just a handful of the most stunning Cannes arrivals. Cara Delevingne lit up the scene in a sultry black lace Burberry gown, Freida Pinto wowed in brilliant color with a bright pink Gucci gown, and Jessica Biel hit the carpet in a frothy, feathery Marchesa confection and a megawatt serpent necklace.
Not to be outdone, Marion Cotillard dazzled in an elegant white Dior dress, and Nicole Kidman played official juror in a decadent and ultrafeminine Valentino Couture gown. Of these five most memorable fashion moments, who's your Cannes red carpet queen? Cast your vote now.
The Cannes Film Festival came to a close today, but the South of France was flooded with stars since it kicked off last Wednesday. Orlando Bloom arrived this weekend to promote his film Zulu and presented an award at the closing ceremony, while jurors Nicole Kidman, Christoph Waltz, and Steven Spielberg headed into the ceremony as a group. Uma Thurman had her partner, Arpad Busson, on her arm for the closing ceremony as well, and last week Michael Douglas and Matt Damon were the talk of the international film extravaganza, promoting their film Behind the Candelabra. Over the past two weeks, other stars like Jessica Chastain, Milla Jovovich, Justin Timberlake, and Alec Baldwin have also been getting in on the Cannes fun.

There's no two ways about it, Marion Cotillard brought effortless glamor to the South of France for the Cannes Film Festival. Whether in a white minidress by Alexander McQueen or a gorgeous gown by Dior, the actress showed off her flawless fashion chops one event after the other. Watch on to see her best looks from the festival now. On Allison: H&M jacket, Zara top.
Marion Cotillard did her best to hold it together when her eyes started to water in the middle of a photocall for The Immigrant at the Cannes Film Festival today. She looked perfectly elegant while posing for photos in a white Alexander McQueen dress with her costar Jeremy Renner, but when it came time to face the photographers herself, her eyes started to tear up. Marion giggled through the ordeal, and put on a pair of large sunglasses as she geared up for the film's press conference. She is no stranger to the flashing lights in the South of France as she premiered another new project, Blood Ties, at the festival on Monday.
It's been a dramatic week for Marion after a woman who was accused of stalking her in 2011 was sentenced to probation on Tuesday. Marion wasn't present at the sentencing, which took place in Brooklyn, as she was attending to business in Cannes. Don't forget to check out all the celebrities at the Cannes Film Festival as the glamorous bash draws to a close this weekend!
Marion Cotillard got dressed up in a Dior gown to join her costars Zoe Saldana, in Valentino, and Clive Owen and director Guillaume Canet on the Cannes red carpet for the premiere of their film Blood Ties this evening. It was a busy day for the crew since they got together for a photocall and press conference at the film festival this morning. Marion and her partner, Guillaume, who directed her in Blood Ties, were able to sneak in a kiss while celebrating the film together earlier today. Missing from the action was Mila Kunis, who is also in the film but currently stationed in London shooting Jupiter Ascending.
Marion has been making the rounds in France since last week, stepping out for the Chopard lunch on Friday and making a fashionable stop in Monaco to fulfill her duties as the face of Dior at the brand's cruise collection runway show on Saturday.
The dreamy clothes at the Christian Dior Resort 2014 show didn't stop at runway's end. The collection, which was presented in Monaco over the weekend, also played host to one very stylish front row. Jessica Biel chose this stunning Fall 2013 dress — a look that perfectly encapsulated ladylike glamour with its houndstooth-print bustier and draped black skirt. Meanwhile, Marion Cotillard chose a no-frills white pre-Fall 2013 leather trench coat, only to spice things up with a pair of neon cap-toe pumps. And Liv Tyler went with an all-black — and navy — approach in a Dior bustier. Now that you've got the fashion facts, who gets your best-dressed vote in the Dior showdown?
Jessica Biel, who wore a glamorous Dior gown, joined the face of the brand, Marion Cotillard, for Dior's Cruise Collection show on Saturday in Monaco. Also in attendance for the fashionable affair were Liv Tyler and Ruth Wilson. Marion switched her focus from jewels to dresses for the runway show after she attended a Chopard lunch at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday. The event took an unexpected turn after $1 million worth of Chopard jewelry was stolen the night before the celebratory occasion.
Jessica popped up in Monaco while her husband, Justin Timberlake, took care of business not far away at the Cannes Film Festival. Justin attended a photocall with his costars Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, and Oscar Isaac for their new Coen brothers film, Inside Llewyn Davis today.
Marion Cotillard donned a strapless Vivienne Westwood gown to join Colin Firth at the Chopard lunch as part of the festivities for the Cannes Film Festival today. Marion and Colin celebrated the jewelry brand, which is responsible for creating the festival's Palme d'Or trophy, as well as best actor and actress awards. The celebratory lunch comes at an interesting time for the brand since it was revealed that $1 million worth of Chopard jewels were stolen from a hotel room in Cannes last night. The jewelry was to be loaned as red carpet pieces to the stars at the festival. Many drew comparisons between last night's burglary and the film, The Bling Ring, which coincidentally debuted at the festival yesterday, since the movie is based on the real-life case of teenage burglars who robbed the Hollywood homes of celebrities.
The Cannes Film Festival kicked off in the South of France, and so many leading ladies (and gents) have already made their way over to the Riviera for this glamorous affair. The Cannes red carpets always deliver incredible fashions, so watch on to see who we're keeping our eyes peeled on this time around. On Allison: Rebecca Taylor suit, Bebe top.
